* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

I never said I had the right. I just don't like the idea of it. Am I not allowed to express my views just because you disagree with it?


hey bro, freedom of speech goes both ways.

ie, you can express your views all you want. Other people still get to tell you they think you're full of shit.

Quote from: Themagicalone;129741
Having sex isn't wrong and you don't have to wait until your married since I don't agree with abstinence.


GEE, WOW, THANK YOU

Quote from: Themagicalone;129741
One should have sex when they are ready but also should be cautious.


Or...you could NOT tell people what they "should" do and let them make their own fucking decisions. Literally.

Quote from: Themagicalone;129741
If not, you catch diseases, spread to others,


I don't know if you've heard of this, it's a relatively new thing, but people can get tested now! Also they have these inventions that can prevent or greatly reduce the spread of STIs from person to person. Furthermore, many STIs can be cured with a simple course of treatment. Even incurable STIs can be managed with medication.

There's also this thing called communication, that helps too. Being willing to talk about the risks with potential partners, whether they're NSA one-night stands or you've been dating for a while.

I know, I know, it takes out all the romance. OH WAIT NO IT DOESN'T

tl;dr: "if not you catch diseases" is not only terribly simplistic, it's not factual. Getting STIs is a risk of having sex, yes. It is always a risk, even when people are cautious. The risk increases when people aren't cautious, true, but that does not mean being careless with sexual relationships will always result in an STI.

Maybe you should do some research before making blanket statements that are clearly wrong. Just a thought.

Quote from: Themagicalone;129741
get pregnant and try to take care of a child that you're clearly not ready to take care of and you basically ruin the kid's life because you were unprepared.


AGAIN, you might want to brush up on current medical science. Did you know there's this thing called birth control? Yeah, it comes in many different forms. And if pre- or during-coitus birth control fails, there's after-coitus birth control -- like Plan B, or an abortion.

Finally, if someone doesn't want a child and doesn't want to do abortion and the BC fails, there is...wait for it...adoption.

Furthermore, being unprepared doesn't magically ruin a kid's life. Have you ever seen Gilmore Girls? Obviously NOT.

Quote from: Themagicalone;129741
All because you couldn't control your urges or were careless. So no, I think being careless and lustful is damaging and immoral to yourself and others.


You want to know how I met my fiance, with whom I've been for over 3 years now?

By fucking his brains out, for four incredible hours, in what was supposed to be a one night stand. I had JUST met him a few hours before.

YEAH I GUESS THAT WAS REALLY DAMAGING TO US HUH

and oh noes, I'm immoral! Just me, right? He's obviously not immoral because he's a dude, but because I'm socially classed as female...well. I guess I should tell him he needs to burn me at the stake to PURGE ME of my WICKEDNESS

Quote from: Themagicalone;129741
I want to have sex with a woman I at LEAST know and care about. They don't have to be a soul mate but I should care for them then just their appearence.


Good for you bro. Not everyone feels that way.

Absolutely! Get to know the person, find out their life circumstances, share moments with them

As for the rest of the thread, morals and lust and so on.....

The only, ONLY, person you can put those expectations and values on are yourself. If you are as wise as you say then you will find a person to be with that shares the same values and morals as you. But even then, the only person you can hold accountable is yourself.

How many people another wants to have intergenital relations with is their business.  Rape and molestation obviously are horrid acts of power and destructive by their very nature. But they are not acts of sex - they are acts of power and abuse.

As for Shadows point about everyone thinking they are somewhat "good", she is essentially right. Even the above mentioned rapists and molesters will have a justification (as twisted as it may be).

Killing and stealing? I would kill and steal to protect or feed my family in a heartbeat if the need arose, if there were no other options available. I would not give it a second thought and my conscience would be clear. That is my world view. Do I expect you to share it? Not at all. I won't pretend to understand why you would NOT do those things, but in the end you have to answer to yourself, and I have to answer to myself, as we all have to.

For the record there were some very lustful type of posts in this thread...... floggings all around!
Really?  So, hey, want to go fishing?  I\'ve got a telescope, and it\'s going to be a dark night, so we should see the fish really well.
...what, I\'m not talking about fishing?  That\'s stargazing?  It\'s all doing-stuff, so it\'s the same thing, right?

Is there a way one can sense the good or bad in someone? I know people can sense auras and know if someone has a significant amount of energy but I wonder if people can give off positive or negative energy. Wondering if you can sense if someone has a good heart or that their heart is corrupted and or tainted just by sensing them.

Energy is energy -- positive energy is just energy used for purposes the definer considers good/positive and vice-versa.  Some people can sense (and not necessarily magically) whether someone is good or evil, but it is "good/evil" in a relative sense -- relative to what the person with the ability to sense this thinks is good and evil.

Sure, because the person who's capable of getting pregnant has all of the responsibility for preventing it fall on hir shoulders. Did you forget about the other half of that equation, you know, the person with the sperm?

Also, I must have the blackest, most corrupt, tainted heart in all the land! I'll be sure to apologize to my son for having the dirty, dirty sex and giving birth to him as a result. I'm sure he'll be thrilled to hear all about how I ruined his life because I couldn't control my urges.

I identified as asexual for a few years (may be demi, initial results inconclusive) so does that make me like 120000x purer than anyone else

Do I get an award

How many more times purer depends on several variables. First, how many exactly is a few? Did you have any impure, immoral or lustful thoughts during that period?

I had a stuffed llama for a few years, does that count?
