    I guess it's not so much a matter of understanding, as it is of not misunderstanding with these types of things.

    Anyway, I'm just a space cadet. No one cares what I think

    Is that really a fetish? I thought people could treat each other as people instead of age.
    I think that as long as she can weed out the creeps and men with bad intentions then she'll be fine because those will come at any age.

    I mean, I find the thought of gay sex between men to be totally disgusting. But I defend their right to do it. Because I realise that my "opinion" of it, or how it makes me "feel" is completely irrelevant. And I'm sure I do things that other people might find disgusting.

    What I'm saying is that I don't think it helps the OP to actually express a subjective personal opinion on this - it can muddy the waters. Although I quote your post, this applies to all in this thread that have said "It's disgusting" etc. - no one cares what you think, and what you think is irrelevant and completely meaningless. I don't mean that in a nasty way, I mean that in a matter of fact way.

    I hope you don't take this personally, because I don't mean it personally. Although I apologise for using your post as the example. If you want, I can change it to quote someone else's similar post.

    The visceral appendices are not helpful.
    I don't take it personally at all. I don't mind a difference of opinion.

    For some people, it is, but you can usually weed them out. It's easier if you're not very sex-focused.
