Yes. Their teeth are not as nice as anime makes it out to be, sadly.

Same here but I think I gave up too early. I quit because I was disappointed in the disparity between my imagination and what I could put on paper but that was before I learned how long it takes to truly master a skill.

There's gotta be a reason (aside from addiction narrative) why people do become closet introverts. I mean, it's pretty clear that we weren't made to move stones, not made to farm the fields etc. when machines are 1000x more productive than us. I feel like those people who say "get out of your basement" have no idea themselves.

>I mean, it's pretty clear that we weren't made to move stones, not made to farm the fields
We weren't "made" to do anything, if that's what you mean. But evolutionarily building robots to farm and hunt for us wasn't the idea, methinks.

It's weird because all the other colleges in this city have kendo teams. Hell, one of them even hosts one of the largest kendo tournaments in my country every year, but I have yet to find one person to start something with.

I'm still holding out on the possibility of meeting a cute kendo 3D to form a club with.
>>
>>135866567
I don't think anyone around here does kendo, honestly. My firm has a fencer, that's it really. It's a tough life, being a responsible adult with barely any chance to slip and inappropriately land on a girl who vaguely looks like teh Rei.

Yes. I learned Japanese, Shogi, Go, sign language, cooking, and I became an artist.

My job requires me to know Eng/Jap, I've played against tons of people in Shogiu/Go during my career, and I've also accommodated plenty for sign language. Cooking is a life skill and I've impressed plenty of people just following a fucking cookbook. I make money on the side drawing people's fetishes.

It's a good feeling. I want to pick up other things but I'm already stretched thin. I get to visit Japan often simply for business meetings. I get to interact and talk to people who don't get to talk to people usually.

I want to force a poor desperate girl to perform personal services in exchange for money.
>>
>>135868270
It's all fun and games till she starts crying while she sucks your dick.

Then I'm 100x more hard.
>>
>>135868341
>more hard
I'm afraid that contradicts your previous statement.
>>
>>135868248
You jack off in between posting on /a/? Why?
>>
I picked up wizardry, only 3 more years until I pass my certificate!
>>
>>135868381
It doesn't.

It's all fun and games till my fetish actually happens. You really wont understand till you experience it.

>find girl or boy of choice
>learn their schedule
>position yourself one day to crash into them around the corner
>flag tripped

>>135868405
Why did you have to remember me
>>

>>135868341
>>135868381
>>135868414
Now you really have to explain further
>>
>>135868394
Because my life is sleep, posting on /a/, and the time in between posting on /a/.
>>
>>135868491
But does it improve your libido or something?
>>
>>135868445
You become some sick depraved animal. Thread is going to die so I don't give a fuck.

>Find some cute poor girl who needs money
>Said I'll pay her if she does this and that
>Unwillingly accepts
>This is my fetish
>She starts crying as she gets forced to swallow
>Become some sick animal and throw her and myself in to depravity doing other sick acts till I'm satisfied
We're good friends now but that isn't the point.
>>
>>135868491
You will die soon and regret all of it.
>>
>>135868512
No. It's not like I'm specifically choosing to masturbate between posts, everything I do is between posts.
>>
>>135868604
Do you time your orgasms to anons giving you (You)s?
>>
>>135868575
You are my hero, anonymous
>>
>>135868632
It's not a good thing. I promise you.
Corrupting a girl isn't as neat as it sounds. I corrupted myself in the process.
>>
>>135868694
>>135868575
You're a terrible person!
>>
>>135868811
I know.
>>
>>135868694
You mean real life isn't like my porn comics?
>>
>>135868846
Nope. Unless you're 100% detached and completely depraved already. Even if you think you are, you probably aren't.
>>
>>135868899
What led you to do it, anon? If you think you're getting out of this without telling the story, you're mistaken.
>>
>>135868941
I have money and she was a cute virgin. I have a rape/blackmail/degradation fetish.

I enjoyed it but it scared me. Never ever 3DPD.
There is more to but but thread will die soon.
>>
>>135868977
>>135868899
You can tell more in ghost.

What actually led you to take action and finally do it, though? Did you already know her, or what?
>>
>>135869029
Fine.

>Kind of knew her in high school
>She dropped out
>She never talked to anyone, was always kind of out there
>Was cute but had that weird personality that made people avoid her
>Got her contact info, god knows why, after she dropped out
>Text her asking whats going on and that I was a classmate(explained who I was etc)
>After texting back and forth she explained her family had money issues and her home was basically a wreck
>This went on for awhile, we got kind of close
>Said I could help her if she did stuff for me
>We were 'close' enough that she said yes
>Finally met
>Practically did anything I wanted
>Literally did anything I wanted from tying her up giving her an enema for anal, making her swallow, etc
>This went on for days before I paid her
>Entire act went on for months
Glad the thread is dead.
