>>1820 Awesome! I need some medial advice. I accidentally tied my penis into a knot and can't get it out. It hurts like crazy when I start to get erect and pee is spray-dribbling out in kind of a reddish color at a very slow, slow consistent rate. What do I do?

One has the science (actually accurate too) and one has the sentiment Thank you! I really appreciate that. As much I too love the "eat a ton and get fat as FUCK" stories and all, I couldn't imagine not being able to go to shows or walks with my GF/wife/ect, so I can really feel like our odd fandom needs a guide to still enjoying a (heavier, or maybe WAY heavier) life while still trying.

>>1799 I agree that OP's post is "bait", in the sense that it's probably just a dude larping as a female to get more replies. But they're pretty exceptional if this is their idea of trolling. The thread is mostly civilized and most people coming across it are probably at least slightly curious about the subject matter, considering where we are. They'll read through the posts even if the OP won't. So who's supposed to be getting baited here? Also, how long have you been using BBW-chan if you think that actual females browsing here is unheard of?

Weight gain in non weight gain media Anonymous 05/27/2020 (Wed) 12:29:30 Id:5b19bc No. 1889 [Reply] [Last]
This is a spin off post of my weight gain in non fetish literature. Anything goes as far as the type of media, TV, movies, anime. International stuff would be appreciated, cuz I don't know where for that stuff. But, nothing that would be depraved enough to be on the alt board.

The Little Things That Make You Smile Anonymous 04/13/2020 (Mon) 20:06:41 Id:05c703 No. 1137 [Reply] [Last]
Fellas who are married to the fat wife of your dreams, what are the little things that she does to make your heart melt? How does it feel waking up next to her in the mornings? What's something mildly annoying she does that makes you lover her all the more? Is there something she does without knowing it that makes you smile? Sex and jiggling bellies are great and all, but what about the little things in life? What about love? Can you help us lonely dudes stuck in quarantine to live vicariously through you for a bit?

>>1177 (dubs of truth check'd) Thanks for the insight Anon. It sounds like you've succeeded in the important things in life at least (having children and raising them right). Sorry to hear the marriage wasn't what you hoped it would be. You sound like you really understand where I'm coming from. So what were the red flags you ignored, and what is some good advice for young Anons trying to navigate the hellscape of modern women? >tfw I just wanted to put off the loneliness by reading about women making their men sandwiches and holding hands >tfw the thread only reminds us all about how shitty everything is for both the young and old >tfw people hate this meme now for some reason >tfw
>>1177 These are fair points. The opposite extreme of a marriage failing because of a lack of dedication, centered around a rom-com mentality where the relationship just falls into place would be a marriage that drags on for far longer than it should've, first because of incompatible partners forcing it to stay alive in hopes that things will get better and later because their lives are too intertwined to neatly come apart. I've been afraid of this possibility too, and I'm sorry that you've gotten stuck in such a relationship. I tried to mitigate this by taking things very slow with my wife. We dated for two years before moving in together, then another three before marriage. We kept things open at first (though neither of us acted on it) and gave each other every opportunity to back out. We didn't intermingle finances until we were four years deep in our relationship, and are just now trying for kids. It's hard to tell whet makes people incompatible. We have very different personalities, but seemingly in a 90% compatible sort of way. We can't agree on television shows and she's much more extroverted than I am, but tend to agree on the direction we want to head in life and can use our differences to be stronger as a unit (I do allot of the technical stuff around the house, while she runs interference and talks for me at social gatherings.) If our relationship were to fail, it might be easy to say in retrospect that "yeah, it was X or Y difference that should've made this inevitable split obvious" but at the moment I don't feel that way. I think we're just two people who want much the same (or compatible) things out of life. It's hard to know if X or Y incompatibility is really a problem in the moment. There's risk in giving part of yourself up to another, but also in avoiding dedication for fear of the consequences. I don't know the best answer for everybody and every situation.

>>1178 >You sound like you really understand where I'm coming from. So what were the red flags you ignored, and what is some good advice for young Anons trying to navigate the hellscape of modern women? This is a difficult question to answer without breaking anonymity. In terms of the specific problems in our marriage that make me wish I hadn't gotten married, they're very personal and subtle. Which makes sense, of course -- if they were blatant and obvious, I would never have proposed to her in the first place! Pic related. If I didn't appreciate the genius of Leo Tolstoy before, I sure as hell do now. Obviously, there's entry-level "don't marry a thot" common sense advice, but you seem on the ball enough not to need it, and my wife passed those initial tests with flying colors. She's a good person, and like I said, she's a wonderful mom. She's just not for me. >>1188 Thanks for the thoughtful reply. You have the right idea by moving slowly and taking it one step at a time. Not living together before we got engaged was a huge, easily avoidable mistake, probably the biggest one I made. It's not like we had religious objections to "living in sin" or anything like that. We had been an exclusive couple for two years and were madly in love, but we live in a city with a cutthroat real estate market, so neither of us wanted to break our existing leases until we were absolutely sure that things were serious. And we lived a few minutes from each other in the same neighborhood, saw each other every day, and spent at least half our nights sleeping over. Moving in together wouldn't be that big a change, right? Wrong. You don't really know who someone is until you've shared a living space with them 24/7 for at least a year. But by that point, we'd sent out save-the-dates for the wedding, made down payments to the vendors, and my sunk cost fallacy rationalization engine was running at full blast. We should have moved more slowly.

>>1178 I've been thinking about this thread a lot as I continue to go slowly crazy in corona quarantine. I wish I had better advice for you, OP. I think you're right that we were coming from a similar place. The problem is that, as >>1188 says, >It's hard to tell what makes people incompatible... If our relationship were to fail, it might be easy to say in retrospect that "yeah, it was X or Y difference that should've made this inevitable split obvious" but at the moment I don't feel that way... It's hard to know if X or Y incompatibility is really a problem in the moment. An unhappy marriage has taught me about coincidences and causal chains that I never expected. Lifestyle difference A imposes financial burden B, which requires choosing neighborhood C over neighborhood D, which interacts with career decision E, which in turn requires sacrifice F, and so on and so on. Each step seemed bearable at the time, but enough steps down the wrong road will lead you to places you never wanted to go. (Unfortunately, filling those alphabetical blanks in with concrete details would require more potentially doxable info than I'm gonna share on the containment board of the fatty porn site.) When the last straw hit I realized that I had been in denial for many years about just how bad things were, but until that moment arrived, I was telling myself that I was doing the right thing by compromising, and I consoled myself in my unhappiness with the thought that this was just what marriage was supposed to feel like. That said, >>1888 is also right when he says: >I don't know the best answer for everybody and every situation.

Trouble with downloads Anonymous 05/18/2020 (Mon) 22:08:36 Id:853d46 No. 1734 [Reply] [Last]
I've been having a lot of trouble downloading things off wetransfer recently. For whatever reason, after a certain amount of time ranging from one to about 30 seconds, my download will just stop. I'm not sure why this is, and it seems like it's only a problem with wetransfer. I can download huge games from places like steam and torrenting works fine. Off of wetransfer however, I can usually only download stuff that's under 100 megabytes because anything biggers takes too long and the download will stop. Once it stops, I'm not able to start it up again either. My download speed averages at about 3.0 MB per second, although at times it'll spike up or down. My internet provider is comcast, and I'm not running any antivirus software that could cause any issues (that I'm aware of). Anyone have any experience with this issue, and if so how did you solve it?

We're seeing people just plain flat out begging, asking for a "mega plz" in other words, they want content, don't want to provide content, and they want to choose the cloud storage that the fellow sharer uploads it too, this just takes the piss on a new level. Just ban anyone who makes any sort of request and doesn't use the right threads or doesn't provide content, it's as simple as that. It's laziness, self entitled-ness and ignorant... It's not hard to read the rules and read the stickies and grasp the concept of Base64, or that you should give in order to get, but it keeps on happening.

Come on man, it sounds like you've just given up with these answers. I don't doubt that some folk have been banned already but we need more people banned. Least let us see this in action, any people who get banned, give them the red ink admin treatment and a little bit more text that explains what they have done wrong. I'm saying these things for the sake of the board, and we can't just say "shit happens" when we could be making more awareness of it.

C4s video tracking Anonymous 05/07/2020 (Thu) 19:46:54 Id:ac4afa No. 1475 [Reply] [Last]
Hello! I remembered that a while ago there were some talk about if you purchase and download a video from clips4sale, the file will contain an "ID" that can be used to detect that it is your purchase if you share it. Can somebody elaborate on the topic more? If this is the case, can anyone recommend a way to remove that "ID"?
3 posts omitted.
>>1481 I'm fairly certain it is, and used to be even more primitive with an ASCII string appended with a URL pointing to the transaction with the customers IP address. I've even seen this mechanism fail in one instance, where their Perl script failed to request something from their database and wound up appending an entire stack trace at the end of the file. Something tells me if this info gets too widespread, they'll change their tactic to something more sophisticated, but I'm confident whatever they do can be undone. I was able to find all this by running a C4S video file through ExifTool, and on every instance it gave a warning about the tag. You can get ExifTool from https://exiftool.org, then after downloading run "exiftool.exe -TagWarning <path/to/file>"
>>1504 reencoding the video fixes all metadata techniques (like the current one) and doesnt require janky perl scripts. the only way to beat reencoding is hiding stuff *in* the video itself, much more complicated and hardly worth the effort.
So what's the best way to do this because I just bought some clips I'd like to share.
>>1652 Use FFMpeg. You'll run something like this: ffmpeg -i <your file> -c:v copy -c:a copy <your clean file> Simple as that. If you want to verify that the tags are gone, open the old files with a hex editor and look at the end. They all should have roughly the same thing: 01 0C 45 then 48 bytes of gibberish. The new files won't have this. Happy sharing.
Thanks for the info! I just now deleted the hex tag, here are the vids, if you are interested. YUhSMGNITTZMeVtERUxdOTNaUzUwYkM5MExVSnZlSG8xZUdSa05WUT0=

>>244 >What is your ideal women shape?! I am more or less inclined towards the pictures I posted. Women with great height (≥ 5'10"), wide hips, and thick thighs and calves that make them look like, for instance, Street Fighter women or Mai from Dead or Alive 6 are the bee's knees. If presented with the opportunity to engage in a passionate, yet productive, female-led relationship with a woman who fits those characteristics, I would not shy away from it—within reason, by the way, as timid women can let you down when things get tough and arrogant bullies with no humility are deal breakers. > What you mean for body positivity? At a very basic level, I agree with body positivity. However, like another anon mentioned, it can, like all ideas based around empowerment, lead to arrogance and laziness. Everyone is diverse if you try hard enough, but, for all intents and purposes, generalized, more expansive models, no pun intended, are needed. Of course, there are concrete limits to this. Roughly one week ago, I was watching a video titled "Instagram vs Runway Models: Can Anyone Be a Model?" by Jubilee. The term "sample size" was used, and, since I did not know what it meant in that context, I decided to look it up. Eventually, this lead me to an interview article about Tom Ford, who makes nice suits, but they have to be slim-fit in my view. Found here, https://www.harpersbazaar.com/uk/fashion/fashion-news/a16634248/tom-ford-model-sample-size/, it is obvious that Ford is too conservative (read: conventional) for his own good. Now, of course, I cannot be too harsh as I am aware that the fashion industry is one of the biggest contributors to pollution, waste and water abuse, especially fast fashion. Innovations in personalized fashion integrated along the lines of affordable body scanners and online shopping, androids/holograms on runways, 3D printing for sustainability, etc. should resolve most of these issues. Unfortunately, I am feeling a bit lazy at the moment, so utilizing divergent thinking to imagine and categorize the broadest benefits, limitations, hazards, etc., then the minutiae, is making my brain hurt lmao. >>1331 > if you are obese, some people will assume that you are lazy, ugly, and generally a bad person so it's okay to mock them. This is not surprising as it is primarily a question of abundance, more specifically a kind of hyperabudance. A relatively good analogy to this is wages. Why would someone pay you more for your labor or treat you well prima facie if perceptions, or perceived abundance of negative characteristics, encourage the opposite reaction. Now, the stereotypical response to this is something along the lines of media and institutional/systemic bias. To a degree this is true, but, I claim, one can cleanse and play with media, as well as intervene with early education, to their heart's content and still fail to put a serious dent in the issues of the day. These are biases and prejudices that existed prior to the erection of these institutions. Without getting too specific, maybe if this was Reddit, I would put in more effort 😎, all individuals, irrespective of their group affiliation/identity, must earn their keep in a sense. To effectively check those negative perceptions, one must identify the critical, and potentially destabilizing, concerns, anxieties, hopes, etc. of the day, even the stuff that instinctively inflames one's passions.. This—yes, I'm influenced by negative average preference utilitarianism—is the best way to guarantee that strangers have a vested interest in your happiness, well-being, etc.; furthermore, this is also the lesson that social justice must come to terms with for the sake of deep reform, those poor fools have forgotten how to innovate and are still perpetuating the status quo DESPITE branding themselves progressives. It is almost as if some of them are crypto-cultural/social conservatives: read Andrea Dworkin, strike out any term that explicitly sounds feminist, in the popular sense, and tell me whether she sounds like a card-carrying social conservative. I am sorry for the politics baiting. If people wish to exist at ever increasing body sizes, that is fine. Nonetheless, there are limits which will produce pressures that create the same tensions they attempted to escape form. Biotechnology and robotics might be helpful, but, as I said above, I am too lazy to get into the thick of it. It would be foolish, and insincere, to ignore the well-being trade-offs of people who exceed, say, 300 lbs, controlling for weight distribution due to height and so on. A cursory look at TLC's programming about them provides a snapshot of some of the issues they face: difficulty bathing/showering independently, breathing, moving around freely, etc. Modes of life such as those would likely be more sustainable with human enhancement or personal assistant technologies. On the topic of feederism, I will say this. About a year ago, I was on StufferDB and came across a SSBBW model. One of the commenters noted, do not paraphrase me here, how she clearly favored one leg over the other; they may have even been eroticizing her atypical gait as they appeared, if my memory serves me correctly, to be encouraging her to get bigger in spite of it. This event made it clear that there are REAL limits to my interest in BBWs. Do not misunderstand me: I have no issues with plump women, but—it is kind of like smoking—I do not want to see a woman I intimately care for sacrifice her health too severely. and constant medical visits are inconvenient, dammit.

Which is really just total capitulation in exchange for some nice privileges. Today's feminists are the most leg-humping Status Quo Warriors I can think of, and today's "pinkwashed" gays are...just an embarassment. On the politics side you have Jim McGreevy and Pete Bootyjudge, who can get away with murder so long as they identify as gay and have a nice investment portfolio. On the celebrity side you have Ellen, who is a starfucker and collects Rolex watches as a hobby. She's really got the common touch.

>>What do you think about body positivity? I personally think it's rude to give people grief over their body, or to treat somebody with disrespect because they're dating someone that you don't find attractive. People are entitled to be attracted to any consenting adult they choose to be, and entitled to the pursuit happiness, regardless of my opinion about their body. If that happiness involves being very fat, more power to them. That entitlement to be attracted to whoever you want is a two way street though: people are also allowed to be unattracted to you. I think that's where the body positivity movement has some issues: there are some women who cross the line from "I shouldn't be bullied or hassled because of my body type, and men who are attracted to me shouldn't be bullied for dating me" to " all men should date me no latter what I look like, regardless of sexual attraction." For me, agreement with body positivity stops when the movement starts to dictate who people may or may not be attracted to. That's not body positivity: it's just an attempt to move the goalposts on the same problematic societal ideals that you claim to be against (when you're not that ideal.) As for the movement in its current form? It's like anything human: a mixed bag. I don't agree with some of the more vocal women in the movement, but I recognize that it does help allot of women accept themselves. >>What is your ideal women shape?!

It's wrong for person A to place their own health standards on person B. B. The bias that exists against fat is medically incorrect. C. Body positivity is not hurting people. Starting with issue A, it's a culture pain point for sure. Don't forget about the huge push against cigarettes and drugs in the 90s. I bring this up because we saw the whiplash when weed became legal. dissenters would shit out "facts" that have nothing to do with reality, citing health as much as they can to validate points. hell I used to be one of those people because I grew up in a D.A.R.E community and was too young to know anything and think for myself. then suddenly while I was trying to save my friends from becoming stoners (oh no) I realized I didn't have a leg to stand on. I bring this up as an example because this cycle repeats itself. I wanted to cite medical info when really my failing more than anything was thinking I was entitled to telling them what to do in the first place. My sense of being on the "right path" made me into the asshole. Sadly, there's a lot of people who were like me. It's happened with smoking, weed, e-cigs (remember popcorn lung), etc. By and large they are spurred on by culture shifts. Fat is no different.To this day the world is still covered in elderly grandmas telling their family members to get some meat on their bones. It's a common joke but it's representative of an heirloom outlook on society, people enforcing their norms on others, thinking they know better. (I wanted to specifically use a pro-fat example because the focus here is the mentality) Which brings us to point B, actually knowing more about something, and how it hardly matters. Remember when the US discovered all the negative properties to trans saturated fat, and cut it from everything? WHO regurgitated that in 2018. That was a huge boon for worldwide health. We know more now than we did before. It's easy enough to learn that being overweight isn't the actual cause for cancers, heart attacks, etc. but that visceral fat is the signified cause of these obesity related illnesses. being overweight is known to cause some joint issues, but it's treated as villainous and the cause for EVERYTHING. In reality, your body likes to move, and eat good food. If you don't move it enough, and eat shit, it starts to break down. That's 100% independent of weight. Most people on here know this already, but we hold a more unique position because the vast majority of folks aren't researching reasons to be ok with liking fat. They've just accepted it's taboo, and are only looking at how to avoid it. This stuff is easy to find, but the truth to most people doesn't matter. 9/10 doctors are still older folks who are stubbornly supporting the old ways, it's easier to tell a patient to "lose weight" than it is to tell a patient to totally change their eating habits, cut out a ton of sugar, and start regular, low impact exercise. When society shames something by referencing surface level knowledge, it creates a pretty big movement. When a 20-something goes to the doctor and gets told to lose weight (at 200 pounds, and having no negative health signs). It's easy for them to turn around and start judging people at 300 pounds. It's the same thing as weed. Hell, it's the same thing as antivaxxers and flat earthers. People exposed to prime examples of shallow knowledge presented with authority, combined with a cultural focus on a supporting claim, become stupid. Which brings us to point C The best way that anyone can de-incentivize false information is by making the truth cultrally desireable. Arguments don't work, even shoving correct information at people doesn't work. Look at the organic foods movement, the antivaxxers, etc. The body positivity movement IS a good thing because it gives people the chance to learn about not "how do I become not me" but more about how to embrace how they already are. Fat girls can start learning about proud and successful fat women. The same is true about tall women, etc. Even if someone falls into the stereotypical norm, they have insecurities, and body positivity helps those people also, stopping them from jumping to forcing those insecurities on others before the practice becomes second nature. It can be weight, skin, height, hair, a lack of hair. The list goes on and on. This isn't just for women either. Most men have horrific body image, it just manifests as apathy due to it being less of a societal focus. That can and should be improved as well.

So anybody watch the markets, or do a bit of trading or investing? If so are there any full time investors? Are you still bullish on the stock market? What about Bitcoin, will there be a big run up this year? What about gold?

>>72 >Thanks for the replies. I see a correction ahead before the NASDAQ punches through 10K. If Trump gets a second term, that will be the final rally into some blow off top like in 1999. For now, this like the rerun of the roaring 1920s. They are just using this identity politics and sexism so we fight against each other whilst they hoover up the assets and turn it back over to us punters in the final rally. Apple went from 200 to over 300 in 6 months. --- Well, that was one hell of a correction! I didn't see COVID-19 behind the cause of it, although I did start preparing in Feb for it. This isn't the kind of a forum to give a running commentary on the markets or economy. Where next? Difficult to say, I'd think we bump along these kinds of levels for a while - a V shaped recovery into another raging bull market it rare. I just don't know. There is a small COVID-19 bull market in those related stocks involved with testing, vaccines, and cures. Gold appears to be strong. And bitcoin is a having a few goes at the $10K level, I suspect that will be broken. PTJ is a bull on bitcoin, and happy to let the media know about it (If only we mere mortals can ramp our own position!) https://www.cnbc.com/2020/05/11/paul-tudor-jones-calls-bitcoin-a-great-speculation-says-he-has-almost-2percent-of-his-assets-in-it.html I see they took the PTJ documentary down again. But here is another link - enjoy! Porn for a trader ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYjL1uY2rv8

Here's a chart of Bitcoin. You can see it's just failed for a third time to punch through $10K.

Here's a chart of Gold, it made a 5yr+ new high past $1400. Is it over? I don't think so, my eyes are on $2000+ But do your own research. Also the gold/silver ratio (gold is money, silver is for gentlemen, debt for slaves ya ya....) is at 300 year extremes. Silver has never been this cheap relative to gold. With oil been uber cheap, and in contract terms, negative. This should be bullish for gold/silver miners.
PTJ likes bitcoin - he has 1-2% exposure to it. https://www.cnbc.com/video/2020/05/11/billionaire-hedge-fund-investor-paul-tudor-jones-bitcoin-is-a-great-speculation.html
