Good for you

Alright already, I get that you're so sexually liberated you could take a rectal cactus without flinching and I think its wonderful that you can talk about it *all the god damned time* but at the end of the day you're just as tiresome as the football fan who can lecture for hours on the merits of Beckam Vs Rooney or the gamer who can happily spend a week outlining the history of their Vampire the Masquerade character. It isn't that I'm squeamish or that you're shocking and upsetting me - though making that your goal speaks volumes about you as a person - its simply that you're boring the piss out of me. I don't *care* if you know what bukkake, rimming or felching are, I know too, I just don't consider them interesting conversational topics because it's just describing an action, nor do I consider it a badge of pride that I know about them. You might as well talk about changing spark plugs you tedious fuck.

Just a pet hate that got prodded first thing this morning. mistersleepless or Warren Ellis as he's better known (comic book writer) posted a story about the thoughts of a man who had led a sheltered life until recently but had come across the existence of the broad spectrum of alternative sexual experience.
Totally missing the point (at least to me anyway) his usual legion of fans and commenters launched into a frenzy of posts about how.. like... they knew all about anal sex and stuff and how talking about it in public was a great way to gross out "normals".

So two pet hates really, the use of "Normals" in describing people and also standing up and screaming about how liberated they were.

Heh. You got one of those in the office as well then? If it makes you feel any better, I now feel much better knowing it's not just me who gets subjected to that!

Mercifully no (see the comment responding to socmot). I just have to deal with rampant incompetence. Anyone who took it upon themselves to discuss sex in an irish IT company would find themselves out on their arse within the hour.

Pity UK based international research companies don't do the same. I do wonder about some of the PhD students they accept in this place, I really do.
