You are somehow implying that people that are into conceiving their 1st kid haven't done basic homework?
I'm not implying anything.

I'm positively saying that some people (specifically the couples I know of who form the basis of my rant) just don't get it, and have no excuse not to.

They have failed to cover the basics before going on to seek medical advice for infertility.

Consider it a business idea. "Getting Pregnant Course with Carlos" could be a big hit in the Gemeindezentrum...

With practical courses too as suggested by Big Blue?

We call that "swinging" where I come from...

I can see it now, along with the SVP protesters outside...

By rights I should groan you. But I won't just to show what a "big man" I am...

I'll just give you the finger instead:

I am not saying it would be easy, but if you get the advertising right (with some promising pictures), get the timing right (when the men are at the office)... but I must admit: I honestly don't know the Basel Hausfrau Scene...

But how can you know it for a fact?

They may have tried/educated themselves from the wrong source. They may have been embarrassed to discuss it. They may have been advised wrongly. They may be ashamed (due to religion-influenced upbringing) for their failures to have a baby. They may not feel comfortable to discuss it between each other even, let along among friends.

I don't. I judge.

But... it doesn't make my observations any less pertinent.

As I've recently said, the complaints corner isn't about reasoned debate anyway.

Well, I happen to think I'm not too bad, for being a fatty... since I'm currently trying NOT to get pregnant, that doesn't add much to the success of the venture.

On the other hand, I've certainly met some others who are really hawt! (And possibly potential future clients)

Noooo...don't take it so personally, jeez, I can't even post anymore...
Informative threads are great, there is some really good info in this thread, helpful. Let's be easy on the judgment, though.

It wasn't very obvious from my post, I actually agreed with you. Just saying you can apply certain cerebral lack to any people who haven't read up on anything and are wondering why things don't work, when simple solution is sometimes so close. I wouldn't assume people do not know, or don't read up, though, since sometimes they really do, but they won't tell you and don't want to get into debates over their ovaries or sticking thermometers you know where, you see?

I try to help out with nursing, same thing. You would be surprised how many moms don't trust their own bodies, they don't know them. This dissociation from our physical part, lack of knowledge, etc. is sad. But, unlike nursing, conception is so much more tricky..Your friends are lucky to have you to push your advice on them

Re: Getting pregnant


Oooh, thanks Paddy, that reminded me of something!


Carlos... for your friends (if they're here, or visiting)... there is a place with special "fantasy rooms" which can be rented. Maybe helpful (in that underhanded way) in helping them find sexy times.

That reminds me of a line from "Dogma":

Metatron: God? Lonely. But funny. He's got a great sense of humor. Take sex for example. There's nothing funnier than the ridiculous faces you people make mid-coitus.
Bethany: Sex is a joke in heaven?
Metatron
: The way I understand it, it's mostly a joke down here, too.

I think we bash the SVP too often from time to time - they are very knowledgable when it comes to group sex. They have politicians who organize orgies from the phone number they use for political work:
