has this site gotten too clean lately, and is that a bad thing?

I usually disregard the complaints that I get about this site and the stories I choose to print, but I think there might be something to this one. Let me know what you think.

Hey Mark, I’ve noticed your blog has been mostly about political stuff lately and was wondering if you could throw in some more sexually perverse stories in order to sleaze things up. Maybe you could talk about “figging”, the latest craze in the BDSM community, or the new Brady Bunch porno movie that’s coming out. Ron Jeremy plays Sam the butcher…

It’s been recently pointed out to me that MM.com has fallen in the Google “ball shaving” rakings from #1 to #2, but it hadn’t occurred to me that it could be symptomatic of something more serious. Now I’m wondering if maybe I’m allowing this little life raft of mine to float into too calm waters. Maybe it’s not a coincidence that my most popular posts recently have been about things like how much to pay the babysitter and whether or not my little town could support a minor league baseball team. Is MM.com – gasp – turning into a bland, online version of “USA Today”? If so, I think this might call from drastic measures… If you’re young, you might want to stay away for the next few weeks. Things could get scary when I shock our little ecosystem here back into balance.

update: OK, I just looked up “figging” and, on second thought, I think maybe I’m happy not to be pushing the envelope when it comes to perversion. Forget everything I said in the above post, and stay tuned for more of my musings about babies, dogs and the nature of friendship.

    I’ve always thought you were a bland, online version of perversity.

    You could still write about city politics and liberal causes, just include a really graphic, close-up depiction of hardcore sex with each post.

    Figging’s okay but I’m more into frinking.

    It’s the ultimate combo of brinking and figging.

    All you need is whiskey, ginger ale and a sense of adventure.

    It’s a blast!

    Mark. It doesn’t matter how clean your posts are. In our comments, Ol E’Cross and I can dirty up any topic. Go ahead. Do your best. See if you can come up with something that we can’t immediately take in some sick direction.

    I’m sorry to have to say this, but this site is no longer about you Mark. It’s bigger than that now. It’s got a life of its own. You’re just the Dr. Frankenstein who brought it to life. Now this monster, which bares your name, is making it’s way down to the village where it will be raping and pillaging. Man are the townspeople going to be pissed at you.
