Fitness in ER Survey

This a companion survey for the Professor's topic on Exercise and Physical Fitness in ER.

I most likely missed some. So before we get going, post any ones missing and I'll update.

Re: Physical Fitness in ER Survey

I assume walking back and forth to the frig falls under "hiking" and wrist curls *under "weight training".*

Re: Physical Fitness in ER Survey

One of my pet peeves is watching folks circle the parking lot at the fitness center, waiting for a close-in space...

I voted weight-training and bicycling, but that was before the deviant sex act selection was added...

Re: Physical Fitness in ER Survey

Hey, Dan, is the hot tub/whirlpool/sauna a solo activity on its own, or merely a venue to facilitate accomplishment of the other activities? Never mind, I'll include them all.

I'll combine swimming/surfing. Although some veteran posters will probably want to split out kayaking as its own activity.

...thinking someone will be willing to do the deviant sex act for you.
I'd like to ask someone to use their extra vote for meditation.

Nords - after facilitation in the hot tub/whirpool/sauna try this:

Yee Haw! Ride him in reverse, Cowgirl!

Sex - - it's not just for dummies anymore...

"Hon, tonight let's do it in the dummy position..."

"I thought you wanted to do a "crash test"...

Ba-dum-bum...

:P

I think having a demostration tool helps clarify in the partner's mind what is expected of them.
A powerpoint presentation could also get the point across

Yee Haw! Ride him in reverse, Cowgirl!

These wooden dolls might help perk up dating opportunities also.
Would you like to see my yoga dolls and the fun positions you can put them in?

Thanks, I think. Considering the turn this thread has taken, it's a good thing that I no longer have to give PowerPoint presentations.

Excuse me, cube_rat, I think I hear my spouse calling me...
