Okay well I know people get turned on by thoughts or porn or whatever but is it weird to be turned on by like a story? Like I read something where a girl was describing how she masturbates and it kind of turned me on. Is that like...uncommon and does it say anything about my sexuality? (Cause I'm a girl...and the story was about a girl.)

Nope, totally normal. People find all kinds of things sexually arousing - there is a pretty big market for porn literature. And no, the story has nothing to do with your sexuality. You can be heterosexual and find stories or pictures of women appealing.

I actually PREFER reading NC-17 stories over watching NC-17 videos [aka porn]. lol.

It's a perfectly natural thing. =]

Madwomen seldom think they're crazy.

Yeah, I find that porn has the whole guilt thing on it... the person you're watching may be being exploited, and I guess to me it feels dirtier, whereas erotic literature seems more innocent (if that's the right word).

In a strange room, before you are emptied for sleep, what are you. And when you are filled with sleep you never were. I dont know what I am. I dont know if I am or not... how often have I lain beneath rain on a strange roof, thinking of home.
