I should just stay out of posts that start with TMI...there are a few right now. Not always bother-some or legit TMI to me...but others, man.

Some of the TMI stuff, I look read as far as I can and slowly back out the door before being seen.

I am in no way saying anyone is wrong for posting their thoughts and ideas, that is not my intention.

I am really private, probably in a bit of a broken way. The sex-talk, vibrator chit-chat (killing me just to write that here) really makes my skin crawl.

Knowing I feel this way, why do I not just avoid the damn posts that say TMI? I should trust the poster...but noooo, it's like a train wreck, I have to go in to only run out like a 2 year old.

Anyone else have a difficult time with TMI posts? Or am I the only one?

Yeah.What you said. Same.

karmahappens posted 3/21/2014 15:03 PM

OMG, thank you Rebreather...I thought there was something wrong with me.

Well, something new wrong with me lol

I'm reading TMI threads wondering if I'll ever be brave enough to share like that. Maybe it's a stiff upper-lip New England thing, karma?

You're not alone. I work with teens and hear enough TMI during a typical school day, then check Facebook to find more, so I usually stay out of TMI threads for my own sanity.

I don't feel there is anything wrong with you Karma, I feel we all are different in what we express. My thread on TMI is D/S was about me and what happened. I loved that people can go to that and post funny things and thoughts but not all of us are that way.

Don't feel like you are different. It took me ALLLOOONNNGGG time to get comfortable to be able to post something like that. But, it feels good I can/able to post and get feed back about something that bothers me in any sense of the form.

I haven't even seen yours Faithful.... I think I need to go cold turkey and stay out of those lol

I think the fact that we're (for the most part) nameless, faceless people helps loosen up the tongue.
I would NEVER tell close friends or relatives the stuff I posted in the TMI BOB thread, lol. I would die simply thinking about confessing that stuff.

It took me a long time to figure out what a BOB was.
And I just don't click on the TMI threads - unless they're girl/PMS related. Not sure why.

Ok, this is how clueless I am rachelc: BOB????

I have to say thank god this place is ANONYMOUS!! I posted to some of those threads. Some very private stuff and some of it pretty graphic too. I don't think I would be able to discuss any of that in a public forum if I wasn't able to hide behind the anonymity of this place.

we're (for the most part) nameless, faceless people face has been plastered all over this site in the photo threads down in F&G..

..God knows who may have come in and said, "Holy shit...I know that guy!"

..and I've posted on a few threads some TMI that would make a sailor blush

..too late now!!!


rachelc posted 3/21/2014 15:33 PM

that is true, yearsofpain. Two years ago I had a TMI issue, posted here and got tons of great advice... I wasn't alone, I realized.

Neverwudaguessed posted 3/21/2014 15:34 PM

Thanks GabyBaby for enlightening me!!!!!

I usually check out the TMI posts just to see if it's something I can contribute to, but I usually back out quietly and move on.

confused615 posted 3/21/2014 15:34 PM

I don't have a problem with them. I've posted in a few. I figure no one here will ever know who I why not? If my answer/response on one of those threads helps anyone, Im ok with being bold.

I have talked about things here on SI that I would never talk about with anyone IRL. I am an incredibly private person. I have trouble letting people get to know me(trust issues..whodathunkit??). On here, I can let it all out, so to speak. It's freeing.

gonnabe2016 posted 3/21/2014 15:40 PM

I've gotten quite an education from some of the TMI threads. Even if it's about an issue that doesn't really pertain to me.....I'm always interested in learning about something new. I mean, I haven't gone into a *sex shop* in years and I don't browse the internet sex toy sites, so where else would I have learned that there are BOB's with ears....and that they are the most awesomest (supposedly) thing on earth?
The knowledge base on SI is just too vast for me to resist reading those threads. But notice, I said *reading*. Posting? Not so much.

Faithful w/Love posted 3/21/2014 15:40 PM

Well I just have to state for FACT that my TMI thread would make anyone feel better with laughter! And I am glad to say that I for one am out of my shy phase now thanks to SI.... I say hell bells, other woman know what my wh private looks like and feels like so why be private anymore.. If he can put that out there then I can put my shit out there also on SI.

Tearsoflove posted 3/21/2014 15:51 PM

I, too, am uncomfortable with them. However, I still go in and read in case there is a legitimate question concerning whether certain things are normal or not. If I have experience with it, I answer (even though it makes me uncomfortable) if my answer might in some way make the poster feel he or she isn't the only one going through something. If it's just TMI with no question, I stop reading and don't post. I don't really find other people's sex lives or lack thereof amusing so I leave those to the people who do.
