/b/ and /g/ have been consolidated into one off-topic board called /ot/. /manure/ has been removed.

You should be able to find all of the /g/ threads in the catalog. Unfortunately, they're a bit jumbled due to the board merger and some may be far back in the catalog, so you may have to dig pretty far. Sorry about that.

To be clear, robots are banned from /ot/ and men are still banned from threads that would normally have belonged in /g/.


An additional board named "pigsty" (/sty/) has been added. /sty/ will remain largely unmoderated (except for spam, gore and illegal content).

The only difference is in the way board rules will be enforced.

Use /ot/ for all off-topic discussions that you wish to remain civil and without major derailing and shitposting.

Rules against racebaiting, baiting in general, derailing, etc. will NOT be enforced in /sty/.

900-1200 is about what a small/studio apartment rents for in my area. I just figure that if I'm going to be paying that hefty wad of cash for an itty bitty apartment anyway, I'd rather give my parents more of a financial cushion instead for about the same sized room and a much nicer bathroom.

I live with my mom but I have a job and pay for my phone, internet, etc. Still, I would feel bad to charge my own kids like that too; having them repay you for taking care of you when you're older seems a lot better to me.

I did a short online search and only found articles about how oil cleansing unclogs (you're probably going to be angry about this expression, too) your pores whilst recommending natural oils. These obviously aren't scientific claims and as a non-native speaker I lack the vocabulary to express this in a more accurate manner. If that's what rustled your jimmies calm down and explain it to me. I'm perfectly willing to admit that I'm wrong as mentioned here >>178468 but you have to provide the sources. Also you still didn't prove the other part of my argument wrong - but keep calling me stupid and insane because that's what intelligent people do. You're way too triggered by this.

>>178468
Oh come on are you taking these expressions literally?

>>178473
It doesn't literally open your pores

>>Unfortunately, your pores don’t open and close like a doggie door. Here’s what does happen: Steam can help loosen the sebum that builds up inside pores. Once that sebum gets cleared out, pores appear smaller

That's exactly what some oils do too. Using those oils and steam combined maximizes the effect.

Bad skin anon who ordered Dudu Osun black soap here. It smells WAY too strongly of shitty soap perfume, and though I couldn't stand the smell I still tried it out. Used it for two days on my face and I could sense trouble. It stung when I used it and I felt like my skin was on the verge of going insane so I quickly stopped. I continued to use it on my body but didn't see much happen good or bad.

So next up I went for goats milk soap. Bought some with tea tree oil in it, and I've used to for two days and I do think its already helping my face. My skin is still really dry but my face doesn't have any new breakouts and the redness is fading. Using it on my body too but I'm not sure if its doing anything, its too early yet. The site I ordered it from is some family run thing and they have tons of different soaps, and actually sell a "problem skin" pack. So if I think this soap is doing good, I might buy one of their problem skin packs to see if any of their other skin specific bars work better.

Also have been continuing to use the rose hip oil as its certainly not doing anything bad to my skin but I'm still not sure if its doing good? I think it might be, but its hard to tell. I figured I spent money on it might as well keep using it.

Please feel free to vent or ask for advice in this thread pertaining to sexual abuse or harassment, etc



I'm looking for advice on how to build a healthy sexual relationship with my partner after my bad past. We've been married two years and he's fantastic. But my libido is very low and I have a feeling it might be tied to poor sexual relationships I'd had before. Starting at 8 years old and then on out. I'm not really bothered by the past but I think my mind is instantly associating sex with bad times, which shouldn't be the case since my husband is lovely. But my brain instantly is telling me that I dont want to do this or that its just a hassle. Often times when we begin fooling around I get stomach aches that will go away basically instantly when we stop, like he can tell I'm not in the mood so we wont continue. I never thought much of it, I always thought it was just something I ate. But today I figured out maybe it could be anxiety related.

I just want to be able to have a normal sex life with him where we can fool around and have fun, but I feel so bad for having something -wrong- with me. If anons have any advice i'd love to hear. I'm too poor for a therapist and I've scoured the internet for advice as well

I don't talk about these because I always get the canned and obvious "You should have told someone" response which makes me feel 100x worse.

When I was 12 I was still going to a pediatrician because my mom couldn't afford anything better for my age. She wasn't in the room when I was getting a check-up and after all the usual shit he had me lay down on the table-bed thing (which was comically way too short for me).

He said he had to check on my development. He then proceeded to lift my shirt, feel me up, lift my pants, and feel in between my thighs. I was pressing them together in some combination of fear and shock, but completely confused as to what was going on. I still have a memory his voice uttering a sort of mumbled "You're developing quite nicely."

I said nothing to my mom, not just about that event but about anything. I was so caught off guard and confused by the whole thing and whether or not that was something he was supposed to do (again, 12, and mildly sheltered).

Sometime after that I became hyper-sexual and looking back I'm not sure if it was just hormones or if that event did have some effect. Years later when I actually dealt with it and realized it was wrong, I felt a ton of regret for not knowing or saying anything because it bothers me thinking he may have done that to others, but there was nothing I could do at that point.

I spent my teen years having very little regard for sexual safety, but due to my mom's crazy and micro-managing, most of that came out through online relationships, until I was an adult.

When I was 22, I was staying in a friend's apartment, provided by his school, but I wasn't allowed to be there and if I was found out, everyone could be kicked out. I decided to poke around Facebook to see what old childhood friends were up to and happened to find this kid who lived down the road from me for about 3 years before vanishing mysteriously.

We hit it off and since he still lived in the area and we were really close in those 3 years he was around (he was my first crush when I was 11). I got him to come out and visit. Given how close we were as kids, and how risky my current living situation was, I decided to move in with him, thinking I'd have more freedom.

Stories on 'coming out' as being abused, and mutual friends?

I try to keep what happened between me and my 'perfect' teenage boyfriend quiet. Even though I know not to minimize, what happened to me was pretty standard and not that bad. My first boyfriend used his mental health diagnosis to emotionally blackmail me into sex and staying with him for years. A lot of the usual 'if you loved me you would x' stuff and just doing things when I was asleep. However, for the second half of our relationship things got a lot better and aside from the fact that I was forced to stay in a relationship with him, everything else was actually good and as uncomfortable as it is to admit, I loved him as a friend and still want him to be happy. I feel like it's a really gray area because he WAS young and inexperienced and didn't actually know just how wrong he was, and he seems to have grown as a person since then even though we don't keep in touch. I ignored my issues with the start of our relationship until five or so years after, when I let something slip to a close friend about how I have ptsd flashbacks during sex and randomly cry and all of these other things, and then I finally got counselling at a specialist rape support clinic.
It helped a lot, but for a year all I could do was obsess about it. I made the decision not to confront my ex about what happened in the past and instead just decided to continue to cut any sign of him from my life, I told my boyfriend and two best friends about it and that was it.

However, it hasn't been that simple. My abusive ex somehow grew into a huge SJW and we still have mutual friends. For the most part I can laugh to myself about the hypocrisy of it all but today a sjw mutual friend we have posted a long blog about how bad it is to not "support survivors" because of something about victims of abuse not being able to attend protests because their abusers were there and honestly it triggered me.
I can't cope with this, it's not fair. It doesn't feel write to email that friend and be like 'oh btw x is a rapist lol' but it's too fucking much to take. I abandoned almost all of my mutual friends and hangouts and handed them over to my ex to cut them out of my life because 'getting over it' just doesn't work, so to see this giant speech about supporting survivors when I can't even go to places in the slight chance that he might be there is a stab in the heart.

I'm actually friends with her on Facebook. She mentioned niggies in a group once and I made a remark about remembering them from deviantart so she added me. She mostly uses her facebook to post her drawings, share clickbait and vent about all kinds of things. Nothing really lulzworthy as far as I know.

On facebook she'll also refer to niggies. She'll mention someone or some living being and also mention their niggi counterpart. It's very strange, but the people in her friends list have gotten used to it.

Ok, so there was already a thread talking about some uni stuff, but I wanted to start a more general thread where we could all let off a little steam, ask for advice, etc.

I'm about to go back to uni to do a post-grad and people on the Facebook group are already pissing me off. 90% of the people on the course are whiny girls who haven't grown up since high school and all they have done is sit and bitch about how bad everything is away to be. I'm feeling really apprehensive about meeting people in person now, because I really wanted to just have a group of friends who I could hang out and study with.

These are definitely not the kind of people I want to have to spend time with if possible, but I don't wanna end up just hanging out with a bunch of dudes all year, so now i'm stressing out. What should I do?

I've answered this before, it's a head space. You can do these things without being a little. These are also things traditionally associated with children, so you let yourself revert to that young head space. It's entirely up to the person.
>>178974
It's fucked up, they're definitely risking minors safety. Minors should not be involved in adult kink play ever. Their brains aren't matured enough to understand. They're easy targets. Pedophiles use dd/lg as a guise to go after real children. Those are the 40 year olds you're referring to.
I am 21 and my boyfriend is in his late 20s, but we met when I was an adult (not teen). We have a reasonable age gap between adults.
However, I think once you reach 20, you are free to date up as high as you'd like. That's just personal opinion.

I'd really like to know what you mean about being in a 'child's headspace'.

Thank you anon who has started this thread.
I was judging parents of this children very harshly and, I admit, had good laugh thanks to them. But now I looked up into the whole case and discovered that my younger cousin is in these group. She is 12 years old, not even 13. Thanks to makeup and filters she looks a bit older but her face still screams "child". As soon as I get home I will call her parents and possibly contact admins of the group? Idk. I would never suspect that, she was never abused or neglected.

You don't do anything. If you don't understand it, you won't understand it. I'm not trying to be mean, but it's either something that clicks or doesn't.
I realise I am absolutely still a 21 year old, giving my responsibilities (some anyways) to another person. I don't know how to describe it other than a head space, if you don't get it you won't get it.
Actors have to get into head spaces to play certain characters and that is the closest thing I can compare it to. I feel as though you may have not read everything I've posted and are stuck on the head space thing.

No one really into dd/lg is stupid. We understand we are still our ages. But we give up those responsibilities for a little while. Then we go back to being adults.
I can't make you understand, especially if you're not open to understanding, which considering the tone of your post, seems to be the case.
>>179133
I'm sorry you found out that way. Before contacting her parents, who likely have zero understanding in what dd/lg is, you should have a talk with her and explain to her why it's so dangerous.
