Most of the topics in the Gentlemans lounge only appear when you're logged in? scratch

So we can talk about tits 'n' bums in relative privacy.

I witness a dearth of the former or the latter!

That is simply because there is a dearth of gentlemen to discuss them!

Perhaps then reason enough to open it up a little to draw in potential punters.

I think that if the quick and simple act of registering is a bit too much effort for some people then it is highly unlikely that they would have the energy required to actually contribute posts anyway.

I'd go even further if I was Grand Poobah and banish everyone who signed up but failed to post. We don't want illiterate perishers just nosing around willy nilly and not bothering to partake in any banter.

I like to think of it as a shop- you have a look in the window before walking in and have a browse. You're less likely to walk in to a shop front that's all boarded up to prevent prying eyes from curious passers by.

At present, to the outside bloke world, it looks a bit like a sewing circle.

Anyway, my two pence for what it's worth.

Ah, therein lies the rub; it's not a shop and it's exceedingly unlikely you'd have found this place by browsing. I've tried looking for the place on Google with no luck and I know what I'm looking for!

If you get here, it's probable someone's told you about it- much like a private members club.
I'd have the whole thing private but that's just me.

And as for Private shops; I've been in plenty of thse too.

Really? Did you don a raincoat and adopt a surreptitious leer before entering.

I may be 'retro' (Jeez, I hate that word) but I'm not Victorian. Sex shops, book shops, clothes shops- they're all the same to me. I just wish the sex shops had some modicum of taste in underwear.

Well, you all hash it out and I'll be more than happy to do whatever is decided about "privacy."

There is a way, in the Admin set up, to do keywords and all that to show up in searches, but I haven't really gotten to it...

Do we want more new folks or no?

Yes. Else it'll grow stale.

I fail to see any justifiable reason for keeping a forum with titles like 'cars, cars, cars' et al beyond view.

If you want to keep the saucy pictures private, then by all means do, but open up the other areas.

Ok.
I've updated all forum sections which are not likely to contain anything personal or any photos of our members so that they are viewable to anyone.

ONLY registered Members can post, I think that's a fair compromise, yeah?

Bravo.

Any forum should require registration before posting.

Do they have many sex shops in sleepy Stoke Mandeville?

Yeah, you'd corner the market for every Bucks raincoat wearer South of Aylesbury. Just watch out for the local WI- handbags at twenty paces.

Perhaps you could get Nicola to rustle up some lingerie- Camiknicks by Cowee, Nicola's knickers etc.

Where have you been Mr Bubbler, if you'll look at Nicola's signature you will note we already make and sell our own range of knickers. Rolling Eyes

And anyway, I'm fairly sure that sex shop stigma is firmly rooted in 1970's sitcoms. If nothing else, they are quite entertaining places to browse and a treat for people-watching.

I'm aware of Nicola's lingerie emporium- they'll never suit me, I have legs like a cart horse and peach georgette is so not my colour.

I was being facetious. tongue

Perhaps you could make this your sales pitch?

Judging by some of the 'pin-ups' currently jumping on the bandwagon, legs like a cart horse are no impediment to a myspace modelling career.
