Dear Jonman,

As we all know, some/most American women are somewhat fond of an English accent, my question to you is this, is it all English accents American women find attractive or is it a select type? I ask because my house mate and her boyfriend have booked a holiday to Florida and he was going on about how he would be able to chat up all these American women with his English accent, I thought about it for a moment, then left the room to have a good giggle to myself, you see, he has quite a camp voice which I find quite funny to poke holes at (he deserves it for waking me up early at the weekend with his hair-dresser voice). So anyway, do American women find all English accents (particularly camp ones) attractive, if (as I suspect) they do not, how mean would it be to point out that his voice might not have the pulling power he expects, on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being not mean, 10 being MUAH-HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Actually these days I'm going against the habit of a decade. Don't buy from Novatech any more. They used to be good, but are now much more corporate, and as a result now treat their customers like something which just dropped out of a dogs arse.

Unfortunately for the prospects of Pat laughing like a drain, I think that your friend is likely to meet with considerable success, camp or not.

For one, almost any British accent will go down a treat, although I'd hazard a guess that the most successful would be a fairly neutral southern accent. Thick regional accents can sometimes give a bit of a comprehension problem - it took Mrs Jonman several months to be able to get her head around a number of regional accents. We watched Phoenix Nights with the subtitles switched on when we first got here.

For two though, there's the concept of 'just gay enough' (I nicked that one from Mata). The ladies love a bloke who's a little bit gay without actually being gay. You know, in touch with your feminine side, sensitive and caring, able to give reasonable sartorial advice. That kind of thing. All the pros of having a gay friend, but without the con of not being able to shag him until he passes out.

So I think that your scale of mean-to-MWAHAHA is moot. What is more relevant, however, is the fact that he's going with his girlfriend which would suggest to me that his chatting-up chances would be slim if he wants to sleep in the same bed as her.

That said, I think (or, at least, I hope) that Mrs Jonman quite liked it when girls went all wobbly-kneed at my accent when we were out and about in the US, because it scored her lots of girl points. "Yes, isn't he dreamy? Well, he's MINE! So, by extension, I am clearly fabulous!"

Sorry to pee on your bonfire.

Dear Stinky Girl

You're still awake because you're not yet asleep. It's very scientific, you see.

The brandy is probably a good idea, assuming it's a measure or two. An entire bottle would be a less good idea. But not necessarily a bad idea (unless it's your third bottle today, in which case you might want to consider drying out a bit).

If you're having trouble sleeping, my personal (and holistic) remedy is to read a good fiction book for half an hour when you get into bed. Works for me. Stops my mind whizzing around with all those daytime-thoughts.

Also, given that I read good sci-fi, it means I have bonkers dreams too. Which is nice.

Lets assume that's a cross sectional diagram of the roof of the stall...

and also that the 18" riser is in the middle of the 14'


. . . . _
. . . . 18
|-84-|-100-|

chop that into two triangles.

Hyp^2 = Adj^2 + Opp^2

Hyp^2 = 18^2 + 84^2

Hyp^2 = 7380

Hyp= 85.90692638

Hyp^2 = Adj^2 + Opp^2

Hyp^2 = 18^2 + 100^2

Hyp^2 = 10324

Hyp = 101.6070864

So the overall length to go over the top of the structure would be 187.5140127 inches or 15.62616773 foot.

Thats with the tarp perfectly taught and with no fixing either end and the post in the middle being infinatly thin.

So it might be an idea to go a little over. biggrin.gif

Dear Porce-ass-lin

First and foremost, the vitally important issue here is this: do you have a nice ass? If so, I suggest leaving huge great rips in the ass of your trousers, and allowing everybody to share the wondrous sight of your rosy cheeks. In fact, why not go the whole hog and cut the entire ass out of the trousers? You'll be safe from unfortuate stabbing incidents from here on out (as long as there's nothing sharp on the chair you're sitting on, as you'll be lacking a protective covering on your exposed buttocks), and your outfit will certainly break the ice at parties.

However, if your confidence in your ass is not up to bearing it for all and sundry to gawp at, then we'll need to revisit the patching issue. First things first, point things in a bit you're going to put all your weight on is not so clever. Would you patch your trainers with knitting needles? Me either. So you need a decent sewing job. If you're not up to it, employ someone who is - your mum, a friend, a friend's mum, a friend's mum's friend. Or her mum. One thing to bear in mind is that there will come a day when the fabric on your favouritest jeans wears away to the point where you just have to let the pants go. Like a games console that, while it used to be shiny and hi-tech, is now just a bit of injection moulded plastic crammed with inefficient obsolete electronics, and needs to be fiddled with for half an hour to get working, you just need to let it go.

You could stage a trouser-wake, where you could share some reminicences of the good times you had wearing the trousers, sing some of your trousers favourite songs, and then stick the fated pants in a box and set fire to it. Then, if you're aiming for the traditional olde worlde style of wake, you drink so much you vomit over your family and get into a fight with some furniture.

Sounds like a win-win plan to me.

Dear Stumped

The world's your mollusc really. Assuming you like your brother, you can't go too far from with consumer electronics. Men are hard-wired (no pun intended) to get spiritually and emotionally excited by silicon. There's no real evidence, but it's SCIENTIFIC FACT! So you have more options than with the new McDonalds Happy Meal Choice Menu ™.

Take your pick: mp3 player, PC/console hardware and/or software, GPS, a watch that shoots lasers and is also a lockpick, ludicrously small camera. Have a look at a site like Firebox or Boys Toys, or I Want One of Those. They have a good selection of nonsense at a range of prices.

On the offchance that you dislike your brother, then you have even more options. Which is nice. You can get a very tasteful inflatable sheep for under a tenner. Who could ask for more? A useless set of plastic gimmicky kitchen tools could be yours for a low low price. You know, like those ones that turn an apple into a big springy coil of apply-goodness? Or those ones that chop, peel, dice and mash in one easy motion (not available in the shops). Yeah, really, just watch telly at about 3 in the morning, and buy the first piece of junk that's advertised. As long as it's not Cillit Bang - can't stand that bloody Barry Scott.

Failing all of that, you could wimp out and go for an Amazon voucher. Amazon sell more or less everything, so the choice is his, whether he wants a gardening DVD, a packet of pencils, or a tennis racquet.

Hope that helps....

You can tell firearms whatever you want. They rarely, if ever, respond. In fact, the last known case of sidearm conversation was back in 1965, when Billy-Jon-Jo-Bob Hicks, a Kentucky farmer, had a 4 hour conversation with his revolver after a peculiar accident in his moonshine shed.

Right.

First off, no, men do not hate sex. Not all of them anyway. It's perfectly possible for a man to have no interest in sex whatsoever, although in this case, I'd expect a sex-substitue to be involved. I know a guy who has no interest in penetrative sex, but gets all of his sexual gratification from bondage play. It works for him.

However, he's very much the exception. Most men are horn-dogs (vast generalisation), but I suspect that if you put up a poll on here, you'll get the response that most men would like to be having regular sex. Lets face it, if all men hated sex, there'd be no human race.

That said, everyone does have a different sex drive. For some, 3-4 times a week is a bit much, yes. For others, every day isn't enough. And let's not forget that a person's sex drive can be affected by any number of things, including but not limited to stress, depression, diet (yes, diet!), fatigue, physical health and even time of the year (due to Seasonal Effect Disorder Sydrome).

And you touch on a few other issues too.
QUOTE
Are men just uncomfortable with a woman who's not afraid to intitiate sex? Or do they only want it when you don't want to give it up?


The answer to both of the above questions is yes, in some cases. Some men are uncomfortable with sexually dominant women. Some men hunger for the thrill, the never knowing when you're going to get it. Every guy is different, just as every girl is different.

QUOTE
In my next relationship should I pretend like I hate sex and never want to give it up so the guy will be all over me

I would say absolutely not. Because, as I've said many times before here, the key to a happy relationship is honesty and open-ness. The best advice I can give for resolving disputes, whether about who does the washing up, or how often his pee-pee gets into your waa-waa, is: TALK ABOUT IT! Seriously, if there's a problem with any relationship, it will rarely go away or get better unless the parties involved work towards resolving it. Together.

Another factor that you have to consider is how a relationship changes with time. You mentioned that one of your past relationships was over 4 years. It's perfectly natural and expected for a couple to have less sex a year into their relationship than they were a month into it. That trend will continue. Where it plateaus out is dependant on the people involved.

There could be nefarious goings-on here too. If your partner was sleeping with other people, then his sex drive would be used up there (not suggesting that he was, just reeling off possibilities). If he had developed a liking for porn, his sex drive could have been exhausted by regular hand-to-gland combat. It can happen.

QUOTE
...and it's not because we're having relationship problems

I beg to differ. It sounds like part of the relationship problem was the mismatched sex drive.

Once again, it's all down to communication. Frank, open and honest discussion of your own sex life could improve the situation. Let's say you explain to him that you're horny all the time. He may explain what's been holding him back. Perhaps he doesn't much like the positions you've got accustomed to. Perhaps he's bored with regular sex. Perhaps he's scared of leaving you unfulfilled - performance anxiety can seriously affect sexual function. Perhaps he recently discovered that he can only get off properly by sticking things up his bottom, and is now homophobically terrified of finding out that he's gay. I'm being silly, but unless you discussed it, you might never know.

Be aware though, these kinds of discussions can put people on the defensive, and make them feel bad about themselves - telling someone that they're not giving you what you need can be hurtful.

And another thing (while I'm on a roll), you're looking at a very small statistical sample. 2 men does not mankind make.

However, some people just aren't sexually compatible. Sometimes, you have to accept this and move on.

In summary:
: All men are different.
: Most men will have a differently scheduled sex drive than you.
: Sex is just one aspect of a relationship, and as with everything else, can be improved by communication.
: You've had crappy luck.


Hope that helps,

And then it struck me. You clearly haven't played with Froogle yet. It's ace. You can buy anything with it. I'm not joking

Go forth and gird your girly bits in loveliness!

*phew*

All that looking at women in their undies can't be good for a man.

Dear Man of Jon,

What's so damn good about this 'jerky' malarky then? And what be your opinions on 'Koolaid' (assuming you have tasted it)?

Dear Jonman,

I am stumped by a question in cooking with Kisah....

How DO they make chipshop chicken taste so good and what spices do they use and how can it be duplicated at home?

Thanks,
Kisah

Looks nice, baby but I highly doubt that KFC counts as a chip shop in England. They're asking about the BBQ chicken cooked rotissorie stylie in chip shops. You know, the ones with the evil pies?

Dear Mr Jon

Did you intentionally skip over Greeneye's question or is my magnetic charm so overwhelming that you couldn't help it?

Perhaps the easier question to answer would be "what's not good about jerky?" Because the answer to that is

NOTHING

As for Kool-aid, I've never had it. The only time I've really come across it is on US blogs where it's refered to as what the right-wing fundie nutjobs drink. Don't quite understand the connection meself, but there you go.
