Beauties & Beaties

Stretching Belief

This post takes a look at on-line honesty. The guest beast backed out at the last moment due to personal reasons so I am stepping up. I must admit that I agree with the Beauty's points and basically we are saying the same things although there are some minor differences in our opinions. The topic for today is: " When on-line, whether blogging, in chat rooms or in e-mails is total honesty required or is the author allowed to embellish details." Green Eyes and myself delve into this topic.

He said: This topic is basically a three part question and each one has it's own set of codes although none of which are strictly enforced. I will take each one step by step.

Blogging: There are as many different types of blogs as there are bloggers. If your blog is given to flights of fancy and works of outright fiction then the readers will be able to recognize it as such and you are given the free rein to so. If however your blog is an on-line journal of the author's day to day life and experiences then an author has a duty to keep it real. It would be very disingenuous indeed if an author of this type of blog told a fabrication in order to elicit sympathy or to inflame it's readers in some way. The blogging community cannot be fooled forever and one doing this will quickly lose both the respect and loyalty of it's readership.

Chatrooms: I have never really understood the whole chatroom craze. It seems to me that it is full of the biggest collection of liars ever assembled short of the personal ads. It seems like a good idea for people to come together and chat with one another on any related topic but the reality falls far short of the aim. Acned teens pretending to be older studs, older men trying to portray a youthful Adonis, and pervs and predators seeking to get their kicks, along with Medusa's pretending to be Britney's and Mariah's; these are what the chatrooms have become in reality. As long as you know this and do not take anything at face value then a chatroom can be fun otherwise you are in for a hard lesson in reality.

E-Mails: If you meet someone on-line and exchange e-mails, I believe you have an obligation to be completely truthful. Maybe I am old-fashioned but I liken e-mails to old fashioned letter writing. It should be a truthful exchange whether it be formal, friendly, or romantic. Anything less than honesty should be avoided if at all possible unless it is to maintain your safety.

She said: Let me start by stating that I cannot tell a lie. It's not that I haven't tried, but that it's just not possible for me to get away with it. I can never keep a straight face. An example, just last Thursday, my sister called me at work. She was having trouble with a co-worker, so she asked me to call her job and pretend that I was her son's pre-school teacher and tell her that he was sick and needed to be picked up. In order to keep her from going to jail on an assault charge, I wait five minutes, and call. When I get through to her, I start off really well, "Scott's sick, you have to..." but I end up laughing my ass off. She's pretending she's getting this serious call, making all the appropriate responses, Oh no! How bad? How high is his temperature?And, all I can do is laugh. When she gets to her car, she calls me up saying, "You are so terrible at that!" So, while others may pretend to be who they're not, or embellish details, it never occurs to me to do either. I'm just not capable of that.

With that being said, I think there's a big difference between blogs, chat rooms, and emails, when it comes to the honesty factor. A blog can be real or fiction, but in the end, it's storytelling at its best. It allows us to be whoever we want to be, write whatever we want to write. Here, feel free to be honest, to be dishonest, and to embellish as many details as you want. People will either read it, or they won't.

In emails, however, a person should be honest. To me, emails are a lot more personal. I expect people to tell me the truth. Maybe some of them don't, and I won't know any different, but I'm being honest with them, so I think it's only fair to expect honesty in return.

It's the chat rooms that are most open to embellishment and dishonesty. I don't bother with these chat rooms anymore because of the dishonesty factor.If I was out partying and not ready for bed, I'd go into a chat room and see what was going on. As soon as I wrote F/32/FL, I'd receive five IM's instantaneously. The number one question that men asked me was, "What are your measurements?" Hell, I suppose I could have lied, but what would be the point? I don't know the answer to that question, really, so I always told them, "I don't have a measuring tape laying around, but, I'm 5'6", brown hair, green eyes, medium build, small waist, big ass." What difference does it make? We're just words on a computer, right? Sometimes I'd get pictures sent to me. Girls, you ever get some where the lower body does not match the face? And, if that is their face, the photo's at least twenty years old! How about the photos of a certain body part? If the picture was really of them, they wouldn't be wasting time in a chat room.But I digress. Go ahead, embellish. I may have embellished a little, or at least tried to, depending on how much I'd had to drink, and how obvious the guy was being with his truth telling or lie spreading. My advice, depending on just how cynical you are, take everything you read with a grain of salt and hope for the best!

Good job, both of you. Though I think you're right, Fuzz, you both basically have the same points. I have never been in a chat room, but now I've tempted to go visit and make up measurements! (OK, not.)

Good points by both .
I am to the point , now, where I avoid chat rooms completely.
Fuzz is right, you should be truthful, always.
Green eyes is also right, take what you read with a grain of salt ( maybe 2 ).

Fuzz is right, chatrooms are filled with the least honest people you can meet. I would say avoid them like the plague.

E-mails are more personal, and blogging can be too. In all three venues, the anonymity is really what can influence how a person portrays themself. It makes people a little bolder and if they have something to hide, they can do so successfully.

When I was in college I would frequent chat rooms. But I HATE them. I had the same kind of experience that Green Eyes had.

Then, some time later I got a call from the FBI asking me if I remembered some dude who had me on his "buddy list." I couldn't remember. But, they left me alone after they found out I was "of legal age." No shit. Scary people man.

I love to read people's blogs whether or not they're embellished. Email, though, is my favorite because I like the "one-to-one" communication and I'm always truthful that way. Chat rooms are for kids, I think. I don't have the patience for them and I haven't been in one in years. Your post didn't mention IM'ing. I don't like that much either. Blogs and emails are the best way to communicate online, in my opinion.

Great job by both of you!

I avoid chat rooms like the plague.

I rarely email with strangers. I have on a few occasions with bloggers, but not often. No reason to lie in emails.

Blogs can be truthful or fictional. It doesn't matter. I prefer to be truthful and throw in silly humor whenever and wherever possible. I don't mind if others lie or not. If I enjoy their blog, I'll keep reading.

I think an important related question is:
Are people truthful in their comments?

I think that in the blog world, people are full of crap sometimes in the comments.

Blogger jay lassiter said...

I always feel like we should blog about whatever's important to us. So, if it's important for someone to bullshit and be dishonest, then i'd say lying is sanctioned in these instances.
It's the difference between being a "phoney" and being a "real phoney" i reckon.
As usual, this one made me think.

Green eyes: you do have beautiful eyes

Bloggin or commenting is entertainment, like sitting on the front porch chatting with friends neighbors and the local fruitcakes.

Nice pair. Of blog entires, that is.

Blogs, as you both point out, are all over the place. Some are avenues for fiction, others daily journals, and everything in between. There's room for everything.

I'd say it's good to know up front what to expect--the author/host shoudl do that service to the reader. And that's not a male/female issue.

Thanks to everyone for your kind comments. Just a couple of things that I would like to add.

I didn't think about IM'ing probably since I do not IM myself. Sorry about the oversight.

And yes I agree blogging especcially commenting, is a lot like sitting back in a coffee shop or wherever you may be, and swapping stories with either your buds or the local fruitcakes. It is just a high tech way of communicating with others. Only now we can sit back and talk to someone all the way across the world and not just the people down the block. In a very real way, everyone is now just down the block only a click or two away.

Thanks again everyone and a special thanks to green eyes for her participation. You rock.

Blogger Tea and Books, etc said...

A really well-written post. :-)

I can't vouch for chat rooms as I've never participated, but from what I've heard anecdotally and from various news reports, it would appear that chat rooms are indeed inhabited by the very young, those looking for pickups, or perverts.

As for blogs, I would agree that they run the gamut from daily living to fantasy life, and if they're supposed to be the former, then there wouldn't appear to be much point to embellishing.

Like many of the commenters above, I've only e-mailed with a few other bloggers. I, too, believe in being truthful. If safety is an issue, then I'd think there would be one e-mail addy given to a select few, and possibly none or another for general use.

Instant messaging also seems to run the gamut from honesty to lying. I believe the same precautions inherent to using chat rooms should apply there.

Switching the shower off John quickly dried himself and Sarah off, kissing each part of her body as he dried it.
Bending he picked her up and carried her in his arms to her bedroom. Once on her bed he kissed her again;
moving down her body to her pert breasts he kissed and sucked her nipples, bringing a moan of pleasure to her lips.
As he suckled at her breasts he slid a hand down over her stomach to her waiting pussy,
running them along her Blowjob Mpegs he coated them in her juices before licking them clean. She tasted so good he had to taste her at the source;
so sliding down the bed he eased her thighs apart. Running his tongue along her babypussy closeup he lapped the juices from her cunt,
causing her to thrust her hips up towards his mouth. As he lapped from her wellspring he rubbed her clit with his 8yofucked,
her moans of pleasure increased as he stimulated her. Coating the adultbouncer crack pass of his free hand in her juices he transferred it to the rosebud of her anus,
before gently easing a finger into her tight backside.
The action of her brotherÂs tongue and arabic live sex chat shot Sarah over the edge into an explosion of an orgasm:
she cried out her pleasure as she came.

I knew my mom was hot from the time I hit puberty. As soon as I began masturbating I was fantasizing about her. And later, in high school all the guys were always over to use my pool in the summer, hoping she would be home from work or be tanning on the weekends. Mom rarely disappointed too, sunning herself in a modest two-piece on the weekends while all my male friends gawked at her. If she ever knew she was the neighborhood hot mom she never gave any indication.
The older I got the more I thought about mom and every girl I dated was compared to her. I had a steady girlfriend through high school, but a careful eye would have seen that she was just a younger version of my mom and when I was with my girlfriend I often imagined she was my Mom. Not that she needed a younger version of herself. Mom was twenty-two when she had me, so when I was in high school she was in her thirties and looked like she could have been in her twenties. Mom had been a beauty queen in high school and the years hadnÒt diminished her looks one bit. Her long, sunny blond hair still fell past her shoulders, I used to play with it all the time when I was little, and her eyes still sparkled blue. And Mom has kept her amazing body. Seeing old pictures I think it got better after she had two kids. Her ass is rounder and plumper than when she was a teen and her breasts look heavier, theyÒre 36CÒs, I know from checking out her bras in the laundry, too. Sometimes thinking about Mom just makes my cock ach
e.
So anyway, IÒm twenty-two now, the same age that Mom was when she had me and sheÒs been my lover for over two years now. I found a way to make my fantasies come true when I was nineteen and away at college. They say that the meeting of all those different cultures and ideas is good. I know it was for me. Some of you may think what I did to get my Mom was wrong, but I canÒt say I have any regrets. HereÒs my story.
My freshman year at college I met this exchange student from India named [url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_erotic_sex_stories.shtml]free erotic sex stories[/url]. Saji was a great guy and we decided that we would be roommates during our sophomore year. When we became roommates we became the best of friends and I took him back home for a weekend. He stayed in the guest room and we had a great time. And I could tell by the way he looked at my Mom that [url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_french_very_young_16_yrs_old.shtml]free french very young 16 yrs old[/url] wanted her just as much as all my friends always had. But Saji was different. He actually said something. We were drinking in the dorm one night.
Dude, would you get pissed if I told you something? [url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_galleri_teen_porn_young_anal.shtml]free galleri teen porn[/url] asked, taking a swig of his beer.
I donÒt think so. Try me. I replied.
Well, I have not been able to stop thinking about your mother. She is such a hottie.
I didnÒt know what to say, so I agreed.
She came to check on me the first night, she was standing in the doorway and I could see right through her nightgown. I felt really bad about thinking of your mother that way, but I couldnÒt help it.
I knew just the nightgown he was talking about. It always drove me crazy too. I tried to make him feel better, and maybe me too a little. If you think you feel bad, think how I feel. IÒm her son!
What? You think your mother is hot too? [url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_gay_anal_sex_picture.shtml]free gay anal[/url] was very surprised.
I had told him a little so I didnÒt see what there was to loose by telling him the rest. Dude, IÒve been fantasizing about my mom since I was a kid. How could I not? SheÒs like a goddess. [url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_gay_sex_chat.shtml]free gay sex[/url] nodded his agreement. Sometimes I think I am doomed to never be completely happy with another girl.
So would you? You knowÅ I thought I knew what he meant, but didnÒt say anything. If you could, Saji continued, would you be with her?
IÅIÅuh, hell, of course I would. As weird as thatÒs supposed to be, I would in a heartbeat. Just thinking about it got me hard. But dude, there is no way she would ever even think about it. She loves my dad way too much. That part was true. My parents acted like they were as in love as the day they met. My dad worked hard and that meant being on business trips a few days every month, going to some regional office or another and every time he came back I would be able to hear my parents making love from down the hallway. My mother was so loud every time she came. Believe me, that had provided more fodder for fantasy than a hundred pornos could. And anyway, she would probably hate me, think I am some disgusting little freak if she knew how I feel.
There was a glint in SajiÒs eyes now. What if I could do something to help you? If I could make your fantasy come true, would you do it then?
I had no idea what he was talking about. It was all academic, so I said, Sure.
Then this is your lucky day, friend. [url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_incest_hentai.shtml]free incest hentai[/url] went on to tell me how back in India his family was well-regarded herbalists and medicine men and that when his father came to this country he brought much of his knowledge with him. Saji had been studying with his father for as far back as he could remember his father had been mixing up elixirs that healed the family far faster than western medicine had to offer. But what Saji had to help me was not a medicine, he said. It was something his father would not teach him and Saji had only been able to learn by sneaking into his fatherÒs journals. What was it? Now that Saji had teased me I had to know what he was talking about. There was a mixture of powdered herbs that when combined acted like a psychotropic agent. What the hell was that, I asked him. Saji smiled and simply said, Mind control.
YouÒre out of your mind. What, am I going to hypnotize my mother into sleeping with me? I snorted.
No, itÒs nothing as clumsy as you would see in a movie, Saji told me. This, he said, worked over time. Several weeks to a month, depending on how strong-willed the subject was. Well, I knew Mom was pretty strong-willed. The subject did not turn into a zombie and best of all they had no idea what was happening. As far as the subject was concerned all of their thoughts and feelings were coming from them.
So why are you offering me this ancient family secret? I asked. There had to be a catch.
Because youÒre the only person here whoÒs truly been a friend to me. And, obviously I expect you to tell me every detail.
I donÒt know why I made the show of struggling over my decision, but I did. After a few minutes of silence I told Saji, Okay, what do I have to do?
When Saji went home for Spring Break he mixed up some of the herbs. Of course he wouldnÒt tell me what was in the mixture he brought back, but he assured me that it wouldnÒt do anything to hurt my mother. He handed me a big ziplock baggie of something that looked like green tea, but ground up more finely, and some written instructions, along with a vial of an amber oil. Saji said it had a very slight, bitter taste, but depending on what I slipped it into she would never notice. The oil was the activator. It was to be used after the herbs had softened Mom up. Lucky for me Mom has a cup of tea every evening after dinner, Saji said that should work perfectly because it would probably start kicking in when she was ready for bed.
