    Oh, my trouble with the 10-person orgy scene? Pronouns. One could say they're really hard.

    Exactly what is the correct pronoun for a gay helicopter?

    Hey man, some gay helis don't want to bear with "whir" as their pronouns. Some prefer chi/chir/chim

    So would whir and chir be analogous to he/she?
    Cause that might make "his" turn into "whis" or worse "chis"

    Hey, if your excitement was the "shortest ever" my orgy scene did its job.

    Go me!

    Are you describing your excitement when seeing this post title?
    Or perhaps your predicted stamina when attending a ten person orgy?

    The secret is keeping track of what body parts belongs to who and entering what and in turn who that what belongs to.

    And yes, I rather discuss orgy scenes than think about contests. My English isn't really up to par and my writings been on the dry lately.

    That's where the pronouns become a problem. There are going to be a lot of he/she/names to keep track of, and there's a real danger of writing a scene where somebody penetrates himself with his own penis. Or a gay helicopter gets tangled in his own blades.

    And people wonder why we need more pronouns!

    To be fair to the gay helicopter, that might well enough be what gets him off. I mean, have you ever got your own blades all tangled up? Might not be as bad as it sounds. Might very well be a pleasant thing indeed. Then again, I wouldn't really know. My knowledge on helicopters are vague at the best. Throw in some erotic and I'm completely lost!

    Where cushions are comfy, and straps hold firm.
    Well sex is the easiest way to get noticed. :p Ten sweaty writhing bodies, entangled in pleasures of the flesh. Sounds sticky to me, but then again so does dousing the lot in whipped cream. :superlaugh:
