I tell you what. That man/woman panel sums up the meaning of life.

That is the truth.

I think there is clearly a problem with that man/woman panel picture.

On the woman's, there are clearly numbers, words, and hash marks, which would give the operator some clues as to what the dials meant or which way to turn them or how far.

In my experience there should just be the word "woman" with no other markings on the metal. The colors are probably good because they might help you think you might have some clue of figuring out what the knobs do.

P.S. -- I'm not as cynical now as the above probably makes me sound.

Ahhh, but there are no labels to indicate function, or whether CW or CCW increase or decrease that function. I also suspect that they are all inter-related and the function and response change randomly throughout the day, week, month, season, milestone and life of the woman and that of her friends. Some of those controls probably do nothing at all, and some (probably the most important ones) will have a variable delay in their response.

You can't win, you can't even quit the game.

It's dinner time, else I'd link a youtube video of Sinatra's "That's Life" ( I bet haha likes that one).....

There are actually several besides the obvious. dh2b and I watched a great show on Discover channel about human sexual arousal the other night. We have decided to donate our free time to the cause of scientific advancement.
Ahem...to answer this question...I would normally use my usual globe references (Equator, Poles, Horse Latitudes etc) to avoid shocking any of the guys, but I'm going easy on ya today.
I need to be in just the right kind of wild mood...

dh2b dragged me to the mall today to buy new w*rk shoes for him. There was a Barnes & Noble nearby, so he rewarded me with a nice Mocha Decaf.
I checked out the bargain tables, and lo and behold, Dr. Laura's The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage was there for $5.98.
This oughta be good.
