Does the above image seem kinky to you?
(Other: please explain.)

That's... weird. o.o

Arousing? You bet.

gomanfox: Re: Ahh, but:
I dunno, I guess it could be, but looking through so much furry art, I think I've seen that done too much for it to have much of an affect on me anymore. >.>

raiblu: Kinky is...
Well, it might be kinky, depending on what your kinks are. Personally, I think the pumps are damn hot. o.o And there is some sort of subconscious fixation to milk that a lot of people seem to share.
But humans in general are meh. (Don't get me wrong- I have no opinion on animals or something like that. It's just that humans are meh.)
Multibreasts are indeed a kinky, and one that I don't share. I don't like it, I don't hate it; I really just don't care. It's more the size that matters. And those... are too big. I'm not ENTIRELY sure, but my preference runs in the A-B cup range. Small and perky are lovable.
I admit that large breasts are DAMN comfortable, but the actual sex appeal is less. And the amount of pain it causes a woman doesn't seem worth it.

I put other. Because it's kinky, but not because of the 4 boobs or the milking then, but just because she's a rather attractive naked woman.

Its kinda gross :P Pregnant/lactating women=ew :P

holohedron: girls are ICKY :P
Not exactly 'kinky', but it is cheeky. At least in my eyes.
I never quite got the breast, I mean, the attraction therein. Squishy jutting-out things. Ew. -__-

guido_jacobs: Re: girls are ICKY :P
I know the feeling. I never understood muscle. Girls like guys that can easily beat her up?
Wed, Dec. 1st, 2004 11:11 pm (UTC)
I do think it is kinky. Very kinky.
Just not a kink I find all that stimulating, to ME. So, it is kinky, just not my kink. ;)

masstreble: Correct answer.
YES! This was actually a test of sorts. "Kinks" are mysterious and vast by nature, so anything could be. However, almost everyone here made a different kind of judgement: one of personal values
. When they read "does this seem kinky", they felt "is this attractive to me
for kinky reasons?"
Certainly makes you think, huh?

guido_jacobs: Re: Correct answer.
Not really. People take things personally. It's just a reflex they have.

raiblu: Re: Correct answer.
Just because I hate to be misunderstood, and I know you share that sentiment. =D In other words, I hope 'almost everyone' didn't include me, because, don't put words in my mouth, biatch. o_O *absolutely without bitterness.*
Dakara... I tend to go on tangents and flaunt my personality because that's the only way it comes out. Look, here comes one now! =D
Kink is a very loose term, so calling things 'kinks' can be a very ambigious thing. Generally with stuff like this, though, yeah, it's a kink. o.o But then...
It also isn't. If you're in a social setting in which this is the standard and the norm, it wouldn't be considered so. And I'm sure, somewhere out there in the universe, it's everyday life. o_O; So in the end, it's ALL ABOUT PERSONAL VALUES, just on a larger scale.
NOW we get down to what you ACTUALLY asked. Linguistically speaking.
You were polling- the root of a poll is based on opinion, not fact. And now the biggie. The term you used- 'seem'- also contains a certain meaning. One thing may 'seem' one way to one person, while it would 'seem' one way to another- in other words, "Seem" is a matter of personal feeling (rather than opinion) rather than base fact. To further this, the way you phrased it put up an invisible (to you).
If you doubt me, I shall consult webster. On the webster.
" 1. To give the impression of being; appear: The child seems healthy, but the doctor is concerned.
2. To appear to one's own opinion or mind: I can't seem to get the story straight.
3. To appear to be true, probable, or evident: It seems you object to the plan. It seems like rain. He seems to have worked in sales for several years.
4. To appear to exist: There seems no reason to postpone it."
And you certainly cannot say 'Does this seem kinky to the universe?' ... Unless you're talking about the like, will of the universe or something.
In other words, you got all of these answers because of the briefness, ambiguity, and true meaning of what you said. Not what you meant. What you said. Wrote, even- that's stronger because it doesn't allow much differentiation. For the answer you were trying to see if came up, it would have been better to say "Is this kinky?" for a more concrete definition.
Chew on this for a while. XD And now that I've made you hate English majors, I'd just like to say, yes, you're right on your conclusion concerning kinks. However, your basis for your conclusion on the psychology of persons... is poorly founded. (God, I sound just like my english professor now. xx; )
To sum this up, as I often do so people don't have to read all of my prattly garbage...
Don't make inferences to my way of thought. n_N I will shoot ya down. And it bugs the hell out of me when people think they have a 'grasp on Rai.'
At any rate, if this turns into a debate, let's keep it friendly. ^_^ It didn't so much scathe me as offer a challenge.

raiblu: Re: Correct answer.
In hindsight, I'd like to correct myself that I DID in fact give an opinion, rather than a factoid. But remember, that's what you asked for.

raiblu: Re: Correct answer.
And now I feel some sort of impending guilt. You wont be mad if I spam your LJ page, huh? Well... let me take how I felt and put it into a comparison.
You're taking a test. In class, with a bunch of people, on paper- a test. It doesn't matter what test it is. It's a serious test, even though it's not graded. It defines how you're seen by that teacher. Now, you get this test back.
It turns out there's this question you got wrong. That almost everyone got wrong. Even though you answered truthfully- except one or two people, who got it right. Because they answered a completely different question.
"Why is this wrong?" You ask in your pitiful student voice. Your professor stands tall in all of his knowing pride and says:
"Because you didn't answer the REAL question."
Yes. The one in subtitles so small that they're naked to the human eye. Or maybe it's printed in white ink, on white paper, that doesn't have any vertical identity, or so little that it'd be insane to see. That's the question that you were SUPPOSED to answer. Don't mind that one in big black ink- that wasn't what the professor really meant. And now he's looking down on you because you couldn't pass his mind game.
Okay, now take that analogy, and instead of knowledge, make it your mind's identity. A lot more personal, isn't it? It irked me. And it isn't the first time that something has irked me. No philosophical wounds, though. I'm not mad or anything. o.o At the very least, forgive me, because I'm going into upperclassman analysis paper mode for the upcoming weekend. But please, at least with me, be a little considerate when you proclaim that you've mapped out a part of my psyche. ._.

alfador_fox: Re: Correct answer.
After re-reading the question, I agree with you that it is rather ambiguous, and could very well mean one's personal opinion.
Consider this, though:
"However, almost everyone here made a different kind of judgement: one of personal values."
I don't see anything there about anyone else's value judgement being WRONG...just different from the "correct answer" Mass was looking for.

masstreble: Learning experience.
Yeah, I mentioned the essential failure of the unintended ambiguousness in another comment around here.
That being said, it was fueled by me putting "other" as a choice. Originally, I didn't imagine it would ever be used! I dislike dichotomies, and I wanted to leave it open enough for somebody with a truly interesting thought about the subject. (Which is why I wanted them to comment, as well.) Throw in the "seems" we have disaster!
What a learning experience. :3

masstreble: Rai shotgunned!
Yaaaagh! Rai shotgunned! XP
But back to the original comment: I agree. I, uh, really made a mistake with that "seems" adamendium. I didn't even mean for it to make it in the question.
However, this was all for fun. What I really wanted to do was show one of the failures of this billboard. It was originally designed to inspire horror in genetic engineering (hence the GE on the image-processed model's bum), but I think without that knowledge, it could have an entirely different effect on many people ("Yum! Milk! ^_^").
Now you know what was going through my head when I made my post. Well, that and "I'd bet a few of my friends would find this picture joyfully dadaistic!"
Fri, Dec. 3rd, 2004 10:09 am (UTC)
alfador_fox: Re: Correct answer.
Thanks! You know, I kind of thought everybody was misinterpreting the question. It's not "Is this one of your
kinks?" nor is it "Does this picture turn you
on?" it is "Does this picture seem kinky?"
But then, I read Latex BLUE; that might skew my thinking on the subject of kinks and fetishes. =^.~= I'm receptive to the ideas of fetishes that I don't personally find arousing.

guido_jacobs: Gyah! My eyes! My virgin eyes!
To some people, yes, but then again, massive blood lost is kinky to some people.

alfador_fox: Re: Gyah! My eyes! My virgin eyes!
I am not one of those people. However, I have the idea that they might enjoy a GWAR concert in ways I can't even imagine.

masstreble: Language settings were miscalibrated --
I read that post about you going to that performance, and I was really ta'en off gaurd! Thou, at a GWAR concert? Heavens!
Sorry, some of my language settings were miscalibrated.

You mean like me?
A bit of a masochist I am... biting, pinching, whips, chains... bondage that sort of thing is kinky... but it all depends...
