It's time to play that game

Before I head out, I think we should play that game, the one where you get to ask me anything and I answer 100% honestly. I’m pretty open and direct on here, but I’m willing to bet some of you are new to my blog and don’t know me so well, and I’m sure some of my long-time readers have a question or two they’ve wanted to ask. Well, here is your chance.

You have until Monday to post a question for me. I’ll answer them all on Monday and Tuesday. If you have no idea of anything to ask me, but want to play anyway, check out 100 things about Five-Speed. Maybe it will give you an idea. Anything goes! Nothing is sacred or prohibited (except as specified in the disclaimers listed below.)

So here is how we’ll play this game, 5-Speed style:

You may ask me any one question of your choosing and I will answer it.

If I have answered it in a previous blog, I’ll answer it again here anyway.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, so please don’t preface your inquiry with “This is a dumb/silly/stupid question, but …” I am a teacher by trade, and that’s one of my pet peeves. Please don’t do that, ok?

If you post a question, and then look back over previous comment/questions left by others and see that some one else asked the same question, you may ask another, but please let me know in the comment why you’re asking the second one.

Disclaimer 1: In the event that I really don’t know the answer, “I don’t know” is a valid response, but you may ask another question if that is my answer.

Disclaimer 2: I am prevented by verbal and written agreements from disclosing certain portions of my past, especially where my military career is concerned. I will not use this as a cop-out. I will only use it if I am truly prohibited from speaking about it, and if that happens, you may ask me another question.

Disclaimer 3: The meaning of life is 42, so no one ask me about the meaning of life.

Disclaimer 4: Ladies, if you want to know the measurements of my penis, don’t ask me here. Take me out for dinner and drinks, and then you can help me measure it afterwards it you like. I’d measure it by myself, but I don’t have enough hands to spread the pubic hair and also hold the magnifying glass, tweezers and caliper. It takes 4 hands and good lighting.

Guarantee: Except for exemptions specified in the disclaimers, I will answer all questions 100% honestly and clearly ‒ no half truths, double speech, plays on words, or jokes. I’ll answer them honestly and seriously.

All righty folks! Ask me some good ones! I’m ready for them!

PS I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and thank you once more for putting up with my drama drag queen ass this week. I’ll “see” you Monday.

If I have to take you both on at once, I'm gonna have to play dirty, so why don't we go play some place else for now? I mean, I want people to take this thread (semi) seriously, and you're not helping. It's all fun and games until some one gets something stuck in their brown-eye.

Well what I'd really like to ask about is what have people been saying about me behind my back?

But, since I'm a friend, I'll guess I'll instead give you yet another opportunity to impress your little female fan club.

Think back now...

...think about the great times you've had having sex... if you could only remember one, choose which one it would be...

...are you ready, do you have it?

What made your best sexual experience so special?

Oh, and I assume wetpantyslut's question excludes humans. (You're gonna have to come up with something better than that!)

five_speed 41M

9/19/2005 9:12 am

Bella, of course you can watch me shave! If you’d like, I’ll even let you help, but no straight razors, darlin’. It’s nothing personal ‒ I don’t trust anyone enough to let them put a straight razor to my throat. If I shaved before I got on the road, I’d have pretty good beard to shave again by the time I got to Winnipeg…

Dano, DT is an awesome woman, all right, and she is a true friend of mine, but there are no guarantees right now that we’ll ever meet. If/when we do, there’s no guarantee sex will be involved. If we did meet, and if we did have sex, we’d never tell on here, simply because it is too much fun to flirt, tease, and stalk each other. We’d probably both write naughty stories about it, but no names or identifying details would be used. So you’ll never know, buddy.

Saint, I’d like to say it’s because I am incredibly cute, or maybe you simply adore my mind? But my honest and final answer is “I don’t know.” You may ask another question if you wish.

Daphne, The first time I had my pubic hair shaved, I was in Nurenburg, Germany, involved in a game of strip poker that did not go my way. Since that fateful day, I have not shaved them completely off again, but I do keep them very short. I always wanted to try waxing them, but I have no idea where to have it done professionally, and I don’t want any of my lovers having the satisfaction of hearing me scream like a little girl.

44DD, you certainly can!

Honni, I love them because they embody principles that are near and dear to my heart: They are intelligent, powerful, gentle, savage, compassionate, merciless, and loyal to a fault. They are willing to kill or to die for the person they love. I love them because we have much in common.

Jim, I love the movie, and that is one of my favorite scenes in the entire thing. My answer is “I want to write novels.”

beewulf9, I was once at a female friend’s house, and she cooked me dinner in thanks for some extremely heavy-duty yard work I had done for her that week (ripping trees and hedges out of the ground by hand.) After dinner, she said “What do you want for dessert?” I said “Pussy.” She blushed, stammered for a second, and then leaned back on the couch… I kneeled in front of her and had a very generous helping of dessert… It became an inside joke for us, kind of like a code word, and she was really good about letting me eat dessert anytime I wanted it. So I’d have to say it is my favorite. If I can’t have that, I like about anything chocolate.

Wetpanties, You asked me three questions, luv, and I can only answer one. Otherwise, I’ll be accused of favoritism, and I can’t have that. My favorite flavor of icecream is a Ben&Jerry’s flavor, and I can’t remember the exact name. It is something like “Chocolate Brownie Fudge” or “Fudge Brownie Delight.” I like to dump an entire tub of it in the blender, add a cup of milk, and a liberal dose of chocolate syrup. MMMMM!!! GOOOOOD!

Synn, I wear boxers on the rare occasions when I find myself in dress slacks or when I spend the night at the home of family or friends. The rest of the time, I wear no underwear at all.

JDLA2, It is not my place. It’s a hotel room at the Sheraton Hotel in Virginia Beach. I was down there to attend a conference associated with my online teaching job. We have to go once a year for three or four days.

Khaos, I’ll assume you’re asking me the first question and asking Gwen the second question. She is a calico-colored cat, but I have no idea of what her actual breed is. She was on the street, a half starved stray, and I took her in. If you ask her, she’ll tell you I was a depressed, lonely, boring computer nerd, and she adopted me. She also says it is ok to use her picture, as long as you mention her name and the name of her pet human.

Sil, it will be returning soon. As for why I did, it was an impulsive action, and my official answer is “I don’t know.” You may ask another question if you like.

Mango, this seemingly simple question is fraught with peril. It could be that you asked it simply because you want to know my opinion on the matter. But it is also possible that you realize the phrasing of the question is such that I have to offer my opinion on an issue that I really can’t make an objective and educated guess about, forcing me to answer based on my own personal practices, thereby providing a good indicator of how honest I truly am. But I can’t say “I don’t know,” since the question asks for my opinion…. hmmmm…. So I will say I think most people are honest most of the time. Everyone fibs occasionally, even me, but I think it is safe to say most people are honest most of the time simply because our society remains functional and productive. If most people lied most of the time, I think anarchy would prevail.

SweetThang, The Infinite Improbability Drive is the spaceship drive for the starship Heart of Gold in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.
The principle is that as its drive reaches infinite improbability, the ship passes simultaneously through every point in the universe. It is then possible to decide at which point you actually want to be at when improbability levels decrease.
From my (admittedly limited) understanding of the concept, I think the drive functions due to a basic cosmic phenomenon. Very often in the universe, when two opposites are taken to their extremes, they are observed to have the same effect on reality. For instance, a very bright light blinds as effectively as total darkness, and severe cold destroys flesh as easily as flame. Along these same lines, any event that is infinitely improbable will occur almost immediately. When you combine this idea with the physical fact that it is very nearly infinitely improbable that any physical mass can be in two separate places at the same time, you create the ability to be anywhere you want to be nearly instantaneously. For instance, if you are in Alaska at 10 AM Monday morning, it is very improbable that you are also in the Florida keys at 10 AM Monday morning. However, if your car was equipped with an improbability drive, you would have the ability to make the theoretically impossible become perfectly feasible, thus allowing you to decide that you are in the Keys instead of Alaska.
If the idea of tapping probabilities interests you, I suggest the Death Gate Cycle by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. It is a set of seven fantasy novels where all magic is accomplished by tapping the probability curve through the use of runes. It is a very interesting concept.

BigGirlz, Skinnydipping, wrestling with my cat, writing, moonlight, cleaning my guns, and sharpening my knives. I’m not joking about the last two, but I don’t mean them to sound crazy either. Both actions are structured, methodical, and productive. Plus, my hands know how to do them without much help from the brain, allowing me time to think and get centered.

Bulging, most people in life are not real to me until after I’ve touched them and tasted their auras. I can’t physically touch most of you, but some of you have forced me to regard you in three dimensions anyway.

Streak, the parameters of your question are so broad that I am having trouble picking an adequate answer. I long for simpler living, and in that regard, I often think I’d like to have been a Viking berserker or a Scottish highlander a few hundred years ago. I’d like that because both lifestyles fit my temperament, and I expect neither would allow me the luxury of living long enough to get bored with life. I also think I would have been at home exploring the American frontier while there were still lands that Europeans had not seen. In modern times, I am not sure where I want to be, but I know what it looks like. It is a house made of glass, steel, and concrete, on the edge of a ridge, allowing a terrific view east, west, and south, with a mountain rising up behind me on the north side.

Sillytater, Are you talking about when I see a woman on the street, or when I have a woman in my bed? If she still has her clothes on, I am most attracted by a woman’s neck, throat, and ears. It is hard to explain, but some women have a curve to their neck that drives me insane with lust. If she has her clothes off, I like it when she is on her knees and elbows in front of me, head down, and ass up in the air, waiting on me to take my pleasure from her as I see fit. It’s a site that just turns me into an animal. I can’t resist it.

Barbie, Somebody already asked me this question. Please feel free to ask me another if you like!

Fallic, Traveling is the only one of us who is actually Texan by birth, so he’d be the best choice if you want to walk, talk, breathe, sleep, eat, and shit like a Texan. If you just want to think and act like a Texan, you can’t go wrong with either of us, because we both have the same Trail Blazer spirit… However, I won’t hump your leg in public or dry hump your butt while you sleep, where as Traveling has been known to do that since he became a heterosapien.

Shortsweet, They keep me sane. They spur me to write. They make me strong. They tell me I need to go west.

onelittlesecret, I once dated a girl who could be very violent in bed. Sometimes she liked regular, normal sex, but sometimes she would tease me until I was ready to explode, and then she’d run off through the house, forcing me to chase her, and when I caught her, she’d fight like a she-devil. She’d bite and kick and punch and scratch and then ridicule me mercilessly if she did manage to fight me off (even though it was unfair. She was trying to kick my ass, and I was just trying to get her pants off without actually hurting her.) but she’d fight right up to the very end, even though she was dripping wet, she was an Amazon right up until I threw her over the arm of the couch, held her down, and thrust my cock into her. Then she just melted, became totally submissive. By that point I was totally turned on, pissed off, often bleeding in multiple spots, and more an animal than a man. I’d fuck her until she couldn’t hold herself up and then I’d hold her up myself and keep going. It was the most primal, savage, and totally satisfying sex I ever had.

NevadaCity, I did use the word “Ladies,” but it is a term that can be intended either as a complimentary title to a female or as a derogatory title to a male. My buddies and I were called “ladies” many times by the drill sergeants at Ft. Benning. Therefore, when I said “ladies,” I intended it as a complimentary address to all the women who frequent my blog, and it was also intended to address and mildly insult any man who was actually curious about my dick. Unfortunately, this apparently includes you, so the disclaimer still applies. Nice try, but if you like, please feel free to ask another question.

DCE, I like autumn the best. Fall has crisp night air, Halloween, and hunting. The smell of dead leaves and impending winter chill makes me tingle all over.

jayR, I have kept one in the past, but I haven’t started the practice again recently. I think I may start it again though. It is a good thing to do.

TxRose, my ID comes from something that happened when I was at college the first time. Rather than re-tell the entire tale here, I’m going to link the blog entry where I lay it out in detail: And so they named him "asshole"

DT, I believe it certainly can! It can lead to the kind of sex where two people are trying to fuck each other into submission, as if the argument can be settled by seeing who can fuck harder. I think it’s about the best way a man and woman can settle an argument, and I know for a fact it is the only time I don’t really mind being “beaten” or proven “wrong.”

36, I really did do that, although I do want to make it clear that it was a fluke. I am not usually prone to such behavior or quick thinking. I might not do something like that again for months or years. I sometimes “hunt” for some one like that but never say anything. Sometimes I see a woman and think of something sweet to say, but I don’t. It is rare that I track some one down and then actually say something. It’sjust my luck that the one time I do it, she’s married. DAMN IT!

anchcpl4fun, I don’t have any idea, although I’d guess the chances are pretty slim this year. I’ll consider this an “I don’t know” if you’d like to ask me something else.

Madkitten, my subscription ran out on the 18th, and I haven’t decided if I am paying the bastards any more money. I am not happy with them, and I think I can only have a few pics as a standard member. They disappeared before the 18th because I hid them to do some work on them, got busy doing something else, and forgot to un-hide them. I’ll look into it later today and see what can be done.

All righty, folks, I’ve gone through and answered one a piece! If your question didn't post before I answered, if you haven’t asked me one yet, or if you get to ask another one for some reason, please feel free to do so, and I will answer them as soon as possible!

These were great, and it was a lot of fun to answer them. Thanks to everyone who posted one so far!

digdoug, I do think the military ‒especially the combat units ‒ brainwashes it's personnel to an extent, especially people who are strong individualists or those who are not naturally aggressive. I do not see it as a bad thing since it is necessary to do the required tasks and duties. I think if people do not like the idea of it, then they should not join. It is voluntary after all. But I do laugh when I see the newest Army recruiting slogan, “Be an Army of One.” What a ridiculous load of total and utter bullshit. I also believe sufficiently intelligent (or neurotic) individuals can resist the brainwashing and still function. In my specific case, I maintained two distinct personalities, the Ranger and the Husband. The army brainwashing did not affect the Husband. The Husband was a kind, gentle, intelligent, creative, and loving man. The Ranger was a cunning, ruthless, and terrifyingly efficient avatar of Death and Entropy. I was able to transition between the two as I drove to or from the airfield. Sometimes I had to take the long way home though, because I found it was easier to go from Husband to Ranger than it was to go from Ranger to Husband.

Sil, the short answer is that yes, I am taking my trip. My schedule is still not set, but I will have a blog about this very topic in the near future. Please stay tuned.

Wetpanties, don’t pout, luv. How can ol’ Five Speed make it better?

LustGoddess, I am not appropriately qualified to answer this question extensively at this time because I do not know you well enough to construct an adequately detailed response. After all, 24 hours is a long time to describe fully, especially when two people are having too much fun to sleep. However, the immediate and obvious answer is “What ever you would like to do, darlin’.” And in the event that you want me to take the lead, if I am the one to call the tune all day, well, I am certain it would involve great laughs and a great time. Before the 24 hours are over, you will be thoroughly pampered and worshipped, and also thoroughly used and desecrated.

Sweetthang, it was a pleasure to answer you. I am happy I have impressed you, because I sure was trying to!
