XGH or XXX


As a continuation of my conversation with my newly orthoprax friend, I made the following comment to him

" your wife would probably prefer you spend your time on porn sites than on apikorus sites "

And I think this is very true.

You can do the quick comparison of XXX versus XGH (being used here as a catchall phrase to include skeptic blogging, reading, and commenting).


XXX is for fantasy, XGH is real

XXX takes a few minutes of your time, XGH can be an hour a day, hundreds of hours yearly

XXX leaves you relaxed and of clear mind, XGH leaves you more confused or conflicted in perpetual angst

XXX can be easily forgiven as a sin of human weakness, XGH is deliberate, ( Yehuda versus this weeks villain Korach!)

XXX is anonymous, XGH puts you in danger of being outed

However both have the same core chracteristic of trying to revolve around the same old central subject from every angle possible (!) while trying to keep readers titillated by fresh and new perspectives on it לא ראי זה כראי זה ולא ראי זה כראי זה; הצד השוה שבהן

Feel free to add more in comments...
