Re: How playing with pets is similar to masturbation

I think this comparison is largely pointless; yes people like pleasure but can't always be bothered/have someone to share sex with, thus, masturbation is a viable means to seek sexual pleasure. However, I do not believe everyone owns pets for the purpose of social interaction "without that huma...

Remember, "I was drunk" is not an excuse for your actions. If you're so drunk that you don't know what you're doing it is your fault for drinking too much.

But otherwise, follow [most] of the advice in this thread and you'll be fine.
