    takes guts to take anything up the ass. I wouldn't be up for it.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It isn't for everybody, but it doesn't hurt. If it hurt then why would people do it?

    I was asking more in the context of psychological harm, considering our posts about pedophilia, but okay.

    I think the only psychological harm that comes from either consensual heterosexual or homosexual sex is derived from people who feel guilty or ashamed because they judge themselves or allow others to judge them in accordance to outdated and irrational religious beliefs.

    I will take your word for it, and pardon me while I back away from this part of the topic.

    There is no evidence of psychological harm from either orientation or homosexual acts. Pedophilia is an entirely different topic from homosexuality.

    Because pain can be fun.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Because sadists and masochists get pleasure from pain. People who don't get pleasure from pain have no incentive to engage in a practice that would cause it.

    I think shame is instinctual. It can be overcome, but is still instinctual when first felt, not imposed from the outside.
