Yeah, same here. On and on about that. There are websites where you can talk about that sort of thing with other people who are into it, you know.

Yeah, seriously.

The difference between sex and rape is consent. The difference between sexy-funtime games and skeevy, creepy do-not-want scenarios is also consent.

Don't try to drag people into your sex life without their consent. Your kink is okay, but you inflicting this crap on me is not.

I forwarded the creepy PMs I got to veinglory, and also reported this thread.

This guy is clearly trolling for some kind of sexual thrill. Gross. Banhammer, please!

I got no issues with anyone's kinks.

But involving other people without their knowledge or consent? That's SO not okay.

Exactly. And he makes it seem so innocent at first. I mean, who doesn't want to help out a fellow writer? *sigh*

I can't believe some people.

When I saw what was going on, and actually heard about what was going on behind the scenes, and this guy's little "thing"....sicko. The second I knew what was up, I took my hand out of my pants, smelled it, and then used it to click the report button.

Fucking internet perverts.
