Spice it up in Sydney - a guide on how to add other people to the equation

2019.12.29 00:54 SpiceItUpInSydney Spice it up in Sydney - a guide on how to add other people to the equation

What is it?
It is a guide for beginners who are interested in enhancing their sex life by including other people. We prefer not to use the term “swingers” as it seems to have a negative vibe to it. Additionally, there are different level of “inclusion of other people” - some don’t involve sex or even touching at all.
Why the guide?
The number of people in the “scene” in Sydney seems to be relatively small in comparison to what we have experienced in European cities. Even on this channel, people have asked us where in Sydney would be a good place to start. We think there is a lot of potential to grow it with many people interested in the subject, but not knowing where to begin. Here, by sharing our experiences, we would like to offer you some tips that could help you start exploring.
Who are we?
We are a couple in our late thirties. We have been together for over 10 years now, married for over three, in the scene for over 5. Good office jobs, no kids. She is bisexual and He loves to fulfil Her fantasies. We are not affiliated with any places or websites mentioned below.
Who is this for?
Mainly for beginners, who don’t have any or much experience. As She is bisexual, the tips are presented from the perspective of a couple looking for a bisexual girl or another couple with a bi female.
Why not go to a “pro”?
Over the years we have talked to many people discussing their beginnings and some of them mentioned hiring a “professional” to fulfil the fantasy of a threesome. We have decided not to do that - mainly as we wanted the other girl to be really interested in Her, but also as by doing this we would lose the opportunity to discover various pleasures on the way.
The first encounters we had happened in strip-clubs as such clubs seemed to be the safest and least stressful option. No need to talk, flirt, but simply go in, pay and have a dance. Some tips:
Happy-ending massage
The next step was to have a happy-ending massage for both of us. One step higher than a strip-club, but still relatively stress-less and effortless. We have decided on a place where one could “browse” the masseuses on-line, check their pictures, body shape - and most importantly - see whether they are doing a massage for females and couples (we excluded the ones who were doing massages only for men and couples as we wanted the masseuse to be into girls as well). The massage consisted of a normal massage, body slides (naked masseuse covered in slippery lotions slides over your naked body) and ended up with a “satisfaction” (hand-only) for both Her and Him. Not sure whether we can share the name of the place here as we would assume it must have a brothel-license, but it should not be difficult to find it with Google.
Casual dating websites
We have found two casual dating websites that are active in Sydney:
When you enter a website you need to create a free profile and then you will be able to start browsing the profiles of other members. At this stage you will be able to respond to the messages sent to you, however if you want to initiate contact with other members yourself you will need to buy a paid subscription.
Some tips related to completing your profile based on what we like to see in them:
Tips about naked pictures:
As with any dating website, you will find some fake profiles or people that are not who they say they are. You will find people who will stop responding to messages once you open your Private Gallery. Accordingly, you will find people who turn out to be not of your type. All these things happen, but it should not stop you from exploring.
Apart from dating, the websites provide information about various events happening around Sydney and Australia. It is worth checking the page in case there will be something for your liking. The events span from “get to know each other” parties, through private play parties to themed parties organised by the swingers clubs.
“Get to know each other” parties
From outside such events look like a normal Halloween party with some people just going one step further with their dress-up (or actually dress-down). The biggest difference is the mentality of the patrons as people go there to mingle and flirt with others. It does not feel awkward to start a conversation with others, have a drink with them and then dance together on the dance floor.
There is no sex on premises, but should you meet someone you are into nothing stops you from exchanging numbers or even continue the night somewhere else in more intimate surroundings.
At such parties, as well as in the Swingers Clubs described below, you will meet people of all ages, shapes and orientations. You will meet people very attractive to you, but also ones that you will find not to your liking or “a bit too much”. However, we have found that people are very respectful and “no” really means “no” (what sometimes can’t be said about mainstream clubs). Additionally, based on our experience the more “hard-core” and extra-ordinarily is someone dressed, the less pushy they are as they are looking for very specific things and most likely for people like themselves.
Most of the parties we have attended have been organised by Red Heaven (http://redheaven.net/). They happen every quarter with different themes (e.g. Fifty Shades of Grey, Circus, Superheroes and Supervillians). Over the years they have been taking place in different clubs or bars around Sydney with the latest instalments happening in a nice bar in Kings Cross.
Swinger clubs
Once you are ready it is time to visit a swingers club. The ones we have gone to:
In general a swingers club has an area where you can meet and talk to other people and then multiple rooms with beds and bathrooms where you can “get to know them much better.'' The clubs are BYO and offer soft drinks for free. You can hire a locker to get changed and keep your valuables. There are condoms and lubricant for your disposal.
Inside the club you are not forced to do anything - if you want you can stay dressed for the whole night or make out only with each other. In OSS you will need to change to a towel and underwear if you want to go the area where people are having sex. This is not required in case of CF.
What we like most about Club Fusion:
What we like most about Couples Club:
What we like most about Our Secret Spot:

Mainstream Clubs
We have been looking for a les/gay/bi-friendly “vanilla” dance club in Sydney, but unfortunately we haven’t found any yet where men would not severely outnumber the women. We have managed to find one in Brisbane though called The Beat - Megaclub (https://thebeatmegaclub.com.au/).
In the media
Final tip:
We will be happy to answer all your questions in the comments or via private messages. We are also interested in your tips, clubs, places worth visiting.

2019.07.17 08:35 pijinglish Part 1: A Timeline of Epstein, Trump, Sex Trafficking, and the Intelligence Community

On 07/10/19, Observer published an article with the following headline: It Sure Looks Like Jeffrey Epstein Was a Spy—But Whose? I passed it around to a few people as idle speculation, and one of them replied,
"Pretty weak factual premise for this article. I think the journalist is stretching. The intelligence methodology alleged doesn’t ring true to me either: — I can’t see US intelligence letting this guy run a sex-trafficking ring in the hope of pulling in a few high level targets; if it’s a hostile intelligence operation, I can’t see US intelligence not intervening early on. I’d say wishful thinking by the journalist. Broader issues of how Epstein got off so easy are more interesting."
Perhaps they're right. The article itself is pretty light on details and doesn't offer much in the way of evidence. So, what are the chances that Epstein or Trump have been involved in some sort of sex trafficking ring with possible ties to the intelligence community? Is that as batshit crazy as it seems? Is any of this remotely plausible?
While even a few years ago a post like this would have been relegated to the tin foil hat sections of the internet, we live in strange times indeed. I've assembled the following from primary sources as much as possible, but I'm also recycling some of my old Reddit posts, as well as some more recent posts by others (if I fail to properly attribute any of my sources, please call me out. Much of this remains speculative, and some of it still clearly falls in the "conspiracy theory" category, but maybe in light of new information we'll re-examine older rumors.
Our story takes place roughly between the mid-1970's and the present day. Join me, won't you?
Because the premise of this post relies on the idea that the CIA would condone or even oversee a sex-trafficking ring, we first have to answer the question if that is even possible. It would appear that it is:
(1954 - 1966) Operation Midnight Climax:
In the 1950s, visitors to a brothel atop San Francisco’s Telegraph Hill got more than just a tryst and a view of the bay. Clients were secretly dosed with LSD as CIA agents watched from behind a one-way mirror. Although it sounds like a bad late-night spy movie, Operation Midnight Climax, as it was called, was a very real part of a larger covert project called MKULTRA."
(Don't worry. I'm leaving mind control out of this.)
When the CIA ran a LSD sex-house in San Francisco:
In 1943, a Swiss chemist named Albert Hofmann developed an unbelievably powerful drug called LSD. When the technical branch of the CIA learned about this drug, the gung-ho head of its chemical division, a young chemist named Sidney Gottlieb, persuaded CIA official Richard Helms that the agency should investigate it as a spy tool. On April 13, 1953, CIA director Allen Dulles approved a program for “covert use of biological and chemical materials” with an initial budget of $300,000. Its name: MKULTRA. The CIA began to fund LSD projects at many institutions, including Columbia University and Mount Sinai Hospital. Informed consent and other moral niceties were dispensed with. One researcher kept seven subjects, junkies enticed by promises of hard drugs, on LSD for 77 straight days. No follow-up on them was ever done. The CIA was playing an extremely dangerous game. In 1953, Gottlieb dosed a CIA colleague, Frank Olson, causing Olson to undergo a mental crisis that ended with him falling to his death from a 10th-floor window. But this horrific incident only put MKULTRA temporarily on hold. Gottlieb soon hired [New York mobster George White, a tough-guy OSS captain who had been an agent in the Federal Bureau of Narcotics] to run two “safe houses” for LSD testing in Greenwich Village. White administered LSD, knockout drops and marijuana to his unwitting “guests” using food, drinks and cigarettes, then tried to get them to talk. In 1955, White was transferred to San Francisco, where he had worked as a journalist, and rented out the apartment on Telegraph Hill. To give his pad the desired French-whorehouse look, White furnished it with Toulouse-Lautrec posters, a picture of a French can-can dancer and kinky photos of women in bondage and domination poses. “It was supposed to look rich,” a narcotics agent who regularly visited told Marks, “but it was furnished like crap.” White installed bugging equipment and a two-way mirror behind which he would sit on a portable toilet, quaffing a martini from the pitcher he kept in the refrigerator, and observe the proceedings. The prostitutes who staffed the operation were paid in part with chits they could use for favors such as getting out of jail. ...Operation Midnight Climax soon expanded beyond the Telegraph Hill pad. CIA operatives began dosing people with acid in restaurants, bars and beaches. They also used other, more exotic drugs: “If we were scared enough of a drug not to try it out on ourselves, we sent it to San Francisco,” a CIA source told Marks. And the agency began using the prostitutes to lure men of all sorts, not just marginal figures, back to the safe house.
In 1974, NYT journalist Seymour Hersh wrote an expose on the CIA's domestic spying program:
An extensive investigation by The New York Times has established that intelligence files on at least 10,000 American citizens were maintained by a special unit of the C.I.A. that was reporting directly to Richard Helms, then the Director of Central Intelligence and now the Ambassador to Iran. In addition, the sources said, a check of the C.I.A.'s domestic files ordered last year by Mr. Helms's successor, James R. Schlesinger, produced evidence of dozens of other illegal activities by members of the C.I.A. inside the United States, beginning in the nineteen‐fifties, including break‐ins, wiretapping and the surreptitious inspection of mail. ...“Counterintelligence!” one high‐level Justice Department official exclaimed upon being given some details of the C.I.A.'s alleged domestic operations. “They're not supposed to have any counterintelligence in this country.” “Oh, my God,” he said, “oh my God.” A former high‐level F.B.I. official who operated in domestic counterintelligence areas since World War I, expressed astonishment and then anger upon being told of the C.I.A.'s alleged domestic activities. “We had an agreement with them that they weren't to do anything unless they checked with us,” he said. “They double‐crossed me all along.” He said he had never been told by his C.I.A. counterintelligence colleagues of any of the alleged domestic operations that took place.
Due to the Watergate scandal and other investigations, the Church Committee was formed in 1975:
Church Committee:
was a U.S. Senate select committee in 1975 that investigated abuses by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), National Security Agency (NSA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)....R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., editor of the conservative magazine The American Spectator, wrote that the committee "betrayed CIA agents and operations." The committee had not received names, so had none to release, as confirmed by later CIA director George H. W. Bush.
Bush would be CIA Director between 1976-1977, until Carter was elected and replaced him with Stansfield Turner. To put it mildly, Turner was not liked by the CIA's good old boy network who felt they'd been left out in the cold after the Church Committee. The San Francisco Chronicle interviewed Turner several months after his appointment:
(08/05/77) CIA Chief Deplores CIA Brothels:
Once Reagan was inaugurated in 1981, Turner would be replaced by William Casey, George HW Bush was VP, and the good old boy network was up and running again. Bob Woodward had this to say about Casey, whose career began in the OSS during WWII:
60 Minutes, An Interview With Bob Woodward:
He broke the rules. He used POWS, prisoners of war, Nazi prisoners of war...as spies for the United States. He used prostitutes. He had one team of prostitutes that were spies. He knew that you don't get the job done of winning by playing by the rules.
So we've established that the CIA was perfectly willing to use prostitutes as part of its intelligence gathering and that by the early 1980's, the Director of the CIA had himself used these methods. But what does any of this have to do with Trump and Epstein? Let's examine their weird careers.
Trump and Epstein both grew up in New York. Trump, born in 1946, grew up in Queens with a wealthy father. Epstein, born in 1953, grew up on Coney Island in a middle class family. I don't know that their paths ever crossed at this stage, but Epstein was possibly familiar with the Trump name even then because in 1966, when Epstein was 13, Fred Trump purchased and demolished one of Coney Island's landmark amusement parks, Steeplechase Park, and wanted to turn it into residential properties. For more info on the effect this would have had on Epstein's neighborhood, see: How the Trumps Brought Death and Destruction to Coney Island. But for Trump, who was 20, this episode and others like it, would be a model for the kind of business man he'd become.
(1973) The Untold Story of Trump Model Management (Part 1):
[John] Casablancas... started Elite Model Management in 1972, by contrast, offered something different. First, he offered money-much more than models were making under Ford and similar agencies. He also offered the prospect of a more exiting lifestyle unhindered by curfews or morality clauses, where late night partying, drug use and hedonistic pleasures were encouraged. While Ford and her compatriots provided the security of labor protection-such as standardized pay and working hours- Casablancas embraced the increasingly popular principals of unbridled capitalism and neoliberalism. In exchange for employment security he gave them an opportunity to earn money commensurate with their commercial success, and the possibilities were endless. ...Around this time Donald Trump was working tirelessly to ingratiate himself into the Manhattan social scene with little success. That changed when he met the man who would become his mentor and closest adviser, Roy Cohn - the infamous lawyer who first gained notoriety as a red baiter during the McCarthy Hearings. Trump met Cohn in 1973 at Le Club, a members-only East Side hangout. Trump was 27, and had just moved to Manhattan but was still working in Brooklyn at one of his father’s company offices. He was a nobody at the time, but he was able to strong arm the owners of Le Club into a membership-something he did as a way to get to know older, connected and powerful men like Roy Cohn. At the time, Trump and his father had been slapped with a lawsuit by the Department of Justice for racial discrimination, for refusing to rent out their real estate properties to black families. Trump knew his best shot at getting the feds to back down was to get a political “fixer” like Roy Cohn on his side. Cohn would eventually represent the Trumps in a counter suit against the DOJ, and ultimately a settlement would be reached. But that was just the beginning of Trump and Cohn’s relationship-“Though Cohn had ostensibly been retained by Donald to handle a single piece of litigation,” Wayne Barrett, an investigative journalist for New York’s Village Voice, would write in his 1992 book about the Trump family “he began in the mid-‘70s to assume a role in Donald’s life far transcending that of a lawyer. He became Donald’s mentor, his constant adviser on every significant aspect of his business and personal life.” Through Cohn, Trump gained access to Manhattan’s drug-fueled disco scene, of which Cohn was a fixture. Cohn would become the legal advisor to Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, the owners of Studio 54 where Trump would spend much of the 1970’s. During this period, Trump engaged in such excess of promiscuity that he deemed it “my second business” according to author Michael Gross. During an interview with Gross for his Pop Culture anthology My Generation - Trump reminisced on this time of his life: “You had drugs, women and booze all over the fuckin’ place”, he boasted. “If I hadn’t got married, who knows what would have happened?” in case anyone missed his point, he would later clarify - “I don’t think anybody had more sex than I did. Sex was all over the fucking place”. He would also describe the typical night at Studio 54 - “I would watch supermodels getting screwed, well-known supermodels getting screwed, on a bench in the middle of the room. There were seven of them and each one was getting screwed by a different guy.” Later he would tell Howard Stern that his sexual exploits-and their inherent risk of deadly disease-were what he considered his “personal Vietnam”, opining that there was perhaps no more deadly weapon than the vagina. And such was the life that Donald Trump saw in the late 70’s. In a way, it was a life not all that dissimilar to Casablancas’, yet with 2 considerable differences. One, Casablancas was a self-made man who was naturally charming, attractive, and navigated the celebrity and social scene with ease. Donald Trump was not. In fact Trump had a personality that most people in the elite circles he wanted to belong to found off putting. But perhaps the greatest difference between the two men was John Casablancas was famous, and Trump was not. Nonetheless, Trump and Casablancas would cross paths at some point during the 70’s-most likely through Roy Cohn, who was involved in the suit between Elite and Ford-and they would form a decades long friendship and later a formal partnership that would end up influencing many of his future career choices and inform his style of interacting with the media. Casablancas’ influence on Trump becomes obvious when reading about both men, and it portends quite a bit, but has been largely forgotten by history. ...Donald Trump met, and started dating, Czech model Ivana Zelníčková- a woman who, despite his later claims that she was a supermodel, was in reality barely making a living posing in her bikini at trade shows at the time they met. Ivana and Trump would marry in 1978 and their first child, Donald Jr., would be born 8 months later.
Until Trump's presidential campaign, Roy Cohn was largely a forgotten figure as far as popular culture was concerned. But he played an extremely important role in Trump's development:
Roy Cohn:
Cohn played a major role in McCarthy's crusade against Communism.[21] During the Lavender Scare, Cohn and McCarthy attempted to enhance anti-Communist fervor in the country by claiming that Communists overseas had convinced several closeted homosexuals employed by the US federal government to pass on important government secrets in exchange for keeping their sexuality secret.[21] Convinced that the employment of homosexuals was now a threat to national security, President Dwight Eisenhower signed an executive order on April 29, 1953, to ban homosexuals from working in the federal government.[21] (Note: Cohn himself was gay. It is reported that his friendship with Trump only soured in the early 80's because Trump learned Cohn had HIV. Cohn would die in 1986 from complications related to AIDS.) ...After leaving McCarthy, Cohn had a 30-year career as an attorney in New York City. His clients included Donald Trump[25]; New York Yankees baseball club and New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner[26][27]; Aristotle Onassis[28]; Mafia figures Tony Salerno, Carmine Galante, and John Gotti; Studio 54 owners Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager; the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, and Texas financier and philanthropist Shearn Moody, Jr.[29]and Richard Dupont. ...In the early 1960s he became a member of the John Birch Society and a principal figure in the Western Goals Foundation. Although he was registered as a Democrat), Cohn supported most of the Republican) presidents of his time and Republicans in major offices across New York.[3] He maintained close ties in conservative political circles, serving as an informal advisor to Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.[3] Cohn's other clients included retired Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz who has referenced Cohn as "the quintessential fixer)".[31] ...Rupert Murdoch was a client, and Cohn repeatedly pressured President Ronald Reagan to further Murdoch's interests. He is credited with introducing Trump and Murdoch, in the mid-1970s, marking the beginning of what was to be a long, pivotal association between the two.[41]
Another figure comes into play around this point:
A Brief History of Roger Stone. The Republican operative and self-described “dirty trickster” has been a presence in the president’s life for more than 30 years.
In 1976, Stone joined Reagan’s first failed presidential bid, working as his “youth director.” The following year, at 24 years old, Stone was elected chairman of the Young Republicans, a political organization for conservatives ages 18 to 40. The chairmanship had clout in conservative circles; the Young Republicans’ support was crucial to Barry Goldwater’s presidential nomination in 1964. Stone’s friend from the College Republicans, Paul Manafort, managed his campaign. Decades later, Manafort would become chairman of Trump’s 2016 presidential bid, and would also be indicted by the special counsel. Both men were from Connecticut, and as our colleague Franklin Foer wrote last March, they shared “an affection for finely tailored power suits, and a deeper love of power itself.” By 1980, Stone had made crucial contacts in Reaganworld, and coordinated the Reagan campaign’s efforts in the Northeast that year, during the California governor’s second run at the White House. He worked closely with the Reagan adviser Roy Cohn. Cohn introduced Stone to his friend and protégé Donald Trump, then a private businessman. At Stone’s urging, Trump, who was in his 30s, became a major donor to Reagan’s second presidential campaign. The two men hit it off—the start of a tumultuous relationship that spanned both business and politics over the next three decades. After Reagan won the White House, Stone founded one of Washington’s first major lobbying firms with friends from his Young Republicans and campaign days: Charles Black and Manafort. As Foer has written, Black, Manafort, and Stone pioneered a new type of influence peddling that was hardball and morally dubious. One of their first clients: Trump and the Trump Organization, his family business.
With that in mind, let's examine one of the older conspiracy theories about Cohn:
(1984) Secret Agenda: Watergate, Deep Throat, and the CIA by Jim Hougan:
"According to fugitive ex-CIA officer Frank Terpil, CIA-directed sexual blackmailing operations were intensive in Washington at about the time of the Watergate scandal. One of those operations, Terpil claims, was run by his former partner, Ed Wilson. Wilson's base of operations for arranging trysts for the politically powerful was, Terpil says, Korean agent Ton Sun Park's George Town Club. In a letter to the author, Terpil explained that historically, one of Wilson's Agency jobs was to subvert members of both houses [of Congress] by any means necessary... Certain people could be easily coerced by living out their sexual fantasies in the flesh... A remembrance of these occasions [was] permanently recorded via selected cameras... The technicians in charge of filming. . .[were] TSD [Technical Services Division of the CIA]... The unwitting porno stars advanced in their political careers, some of [whom] may still be in office." ...Ton Sun Park, the owner of the George Town Club where Wilson ran his sexual blackmail scheme, was an associate of radical cult leader Sun Myung Moon. October 31, 1978, a report printed for the use of the Committee on International Relations, 'Investigation of Korean-American Relations': "During 1976, the subcommittee also received information about an apparent attempt by Moon and his followers--along with Tong-sun Park--to buy a controlling interest in the Diplomat National Bank (DNB), which opened in Washington D.C., in December 1975. Neil Salonen, president of the UC of America, was called to testify concerning this and other allegations. Salonen said he had bought DNB stock at the suggestion of Pak Bo Hi, but denied the UC was in any way involved in financing the DNB stock purchases." Moon has been a major anti-communist activist and is connected to all the reactionary elements within this movement, most notably those involved with the World Anti-Communist League. These include Cercle members Count Hans Huyn and Otto von Habsburg in Bavaria, Germany, Paul Vanden Boeynants in Belgium, and Arnaud de Borchgrave, Rev. Jerry Falwell, George Bush, John Singlaub, and many others in the United States. Moon has also been tied to sexual blackmail rings. December 20, 2002 issue of Executive Intelligence Review (EIR), 'The 'No Soul' Gang Behind Reverend Moon's Gnostic Sex Cult': "The sex is a specialty of Moon's own Gnostic "family" cult. Remember the Congressional Madam scandals of the 1970s, featuring Tong Sun Park and Suzy Park Thomson? That was just the tip of the iceberg of "The Reverend" Moon's sexual-favors operation. Military intelligence officers who investigated Unification Church operations in Washington in the 1970s and '80s, report that the recruitment device used on ranking, conservative political and military officials was to hold weekly orgies, arranged by Col. Bo Hi Pak, the Unification Church official who was a top officer of the Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCIA). The special treat at these affairs were the "Little Angels", Korean schoolgirls brought over by Moon as a singing group. The photo files from these sessions are reported to be a powerful influence in certain circles to this very day." DeCamp again, p. 179-180: "Gray's associate Wilson was apparently continuing the work of a reported collaborator of Gray from the 1950's McCarthy committee counsel Roy Cohn [of Permindex, according to EIR; and connections to Fascist International in Europe since the early 1950s], now dead of AIDS. According to the former head of the vice squad for one of America's biggest cities, Cohn's job was to run the little boys. Say you had an admiral, a general, a congressman, who did not want to go along with the program. Cohn's job was to set them up, then they would go along. Cohn told me that himself."
(Because I'm lazy, I used the above quote from this crazily formatted site. Feel free to discount it if you like, but considering the topic, I felt it relevant.)
So, to recap, in the 1970's while Trump was just starting out he befriended both John Casablancas, a modeling agent with a predilection for young girls, Roger Stone, a Republican dirty trickster involved in Watergate, and Roy Cohn, a hardline anticommunist and closeted homosexual, who introduced Trump to Rupert Murdoch and took him to sex parties at Studio 54 while Cohn was allegedly also involved in sexual blackmail operations for people affiliated with the CIA. Both Stone and Manafort would later be revealed to be active swingers with a taste for sex clubs and cuckoldry.

Great article about the emasculation of AM in the west. The article hits home that everything this sub has quoted...
1) it highlighted the Occupied study about how AM are unwanted
2) it highlighted the psychiatrist San Louie - https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/minority-report/201706/dating-asian-american-men.
3) detailed the problems of gay asian men on grindr
4) Also it highlighted the removal of the infamous quote "I never date Asian men", which generated positive feedback from the community.
Like it or not, that quote caused ripples throughout the community - god, I hope feminist do a hit job on Constance Wu about that quote, if the movie blowup.

I know nothing of computers but i was wondering if you could simply state why i should use firefox on my PC instead of others? Firefox is designed and implemented by a non-profit organization fighting for the rights and the privacy of users on the web. Other major browsers are basically the opposite.
Because Firefox is the safest and most customizable browser out there. It's powered by people like me and you who contribute to make it better every day. It's running stable and does your best to protect your privacy on the internet. Plus it's incredibly fast and supports many open standards, giving you a better browsing experience. :)
Plus, as an Open source model, if a security flaw is discovered, it's fixed in an average of one day, rather than other proprietary softwares can take weeks or months to fix it, for instance.
Firefox for Android, in my opinion, is the best mobile browser out there for Android. With it's recent features like Reader Mode and shift to native widgets to improve performance, it's become my favorite. Using Firefox on Desktop, gives me the option to use Firefox Sync.
Firefox is practically slow compared to Chrome. What are you doing about it? I am not talking about speed of launching it on the desktop, I am talking about speed in general. Chrome is simply faster when in use compared to Firefox. Firefox is getting faster and faster with every release, so you might want to check back every so often to see if you still find it slow...
What are you doing to develop/upgrade the local Bookmarks Manager? But, if you find Chrome faster, use Chrome! Mozilla is a not-for-profit which exists for the good of the web, and part of the web remaining healthy is there being multiple web browsers out there. As we saw when IE completely dominated, the web was a boring mundane place, but now where IE, Chrome and Firefox have a much more even split of the browser market, the web is a much better place! (Wouldn't you agree?)
These are the make/break things for me. I gave up on Firefox after many years of complete support only after I realized that Chrome was faster. There is a huge saving of time in a long run when you use Chrome over Firefox. So, where was I going on this point? Ah, yes - if you prefer Chrome then use Chrome! If Opera has features you like, use Opera. Heck, if IE floats your boat... then use it! The competitiveness in the browser market is what pushes development on the web, and is exactly what Mozilla likes and wants!
Ps: I am not a great fan of Google or even their browser, but speed is a big deal when one looks at it in a long run. The amount of time one can save is significant. As for the local bookmarks manager, I have no idea :P.
Memory leaks. are they fixed and people just keep on saying that they are not, or are there still memory leaks? There are no significant memory leaks that we know of, and overall memory usage is quite good.. but there still might be memory issues. A 'memory leak' happens when a program reserves some memory space, and then loses all ways to access it without releasing it. These are pretty easy to find and take care of.
If you could impliment one feature what would it be? Be crazy. Much harder is when a program reserves some memory space, and something still holds on to it -- even if it's not being actively used. For example, a web app may load a bunch of data off the network and keep it around in case you click a button on the page to have it be displayed... and then keep loading more data every hour (for example, to make sure you have the latest info). If you keep your browser and this tab open, you will see your browser's memory usage go up and up and up. There's no real leak, but memory isn't being used efficiently -- and it's not the browser's fault! As web apps become more complex, this kind of stuff is becoming very common. You can get an idea of what's going on by looking at 'about:memory' in Firefox, which lists all sorts of interesting memory data.
I keep my browser open forever, other than for updates, so I see this stuff frequently. Usually just closing tabs that I suspect are doing this causes memory usage to drop pretty quickly.
Vertical tabs ;)
Practically, every program has memory leaks. Unfortunately, adding new features to Firefox can also cause them to appear. But thanks to our contributors and developers who try to fix them as soon as possible, most users' browsing experiences won't be affected. And as soon as someone tells us about a memory leak, we're fixing it and keeping the numbers of leaks as small as possible. :-)
Regarding your second question: I'd personally love a feature that allows me to make sandwiches. I know it's impossible, but I'm really looking forward to seeing it in the future.
I just want to point out that we'll never "fix all the memory leaks", and we should never claim otherwise. Firefox has millions of lines of code, and we're constantly changing it. As hard as we try, we occasionally introduce new leaks (e.g. [1]). And as we change the browser, the amount of memory it uses also changes -- this can give the appearance of "leaks" when there are none per se.
The right question to ask isn't "are the leaks finally fixed?" but "how has the chance that Firefox's memory usage is acceptable for my workloads changed over time?" In this respect, we've made demonstrable progress, as we've not only decreased memory usage for average workloads (as indicated by the telemetry we collect from users who opt in [2] and by our automated tests [3]), but we've fixed a number of edge cases which were causing some users to see high memory usage. (For example, we fixed the vast majority of leaks caused by add-ons.)

Are there any future plans/projects for Firefox that we should looking forward to? Firefox OS :)
FirefoxOS, formerly Boot2Gecko, is going to be available early next year. It is an OS aimed at commodity smartphones built exclusively on web standards, and it is pretty freaking neat. This has driven a lot of the performance improvements we've seen in Firefox (and Firefox for Android) over the last year.
WebRTC: real-time communication in the browser without plugins required. p2p Audio, Video or data streams directly from within the browser, all in a couple lines of javascript.
Rust, a C/C++ replacing system language that is memory safe. They just released version 0.4.
Servo, a next-generation, multi-process, super-flexible browser engine, conveniently being written in Rust.
Per Window Private Browsing : The details are here Link to wiki.mozilla.org
This seems like a very ambitious project. Many iOS and android users are heavily devoted to sticking with these systems. How do you plan to compete with them and convince people to switch? The world is a big place and not everyone can afford to pay for a higher end iPhone or Android device. I think our objective is give people a smartphone experience at a very affordable price range to begin with.
Can we expect a Firefox Phone anytime soon? There is no plan for a Mozilla phone.
Are you in need of contributors and is it easy to get involved? We are always happy to gain new contributors. And yes, it is very easy to get involved! Simply go to this page to get to know how to join us.
Besides visiting the link others have suggested, join the channel #introduction on irc.mozilla.org and ask any question and you'll always find people ready to help.
PS : If you're looking for contributing via programming, check out Link to whatcanidoformozilla.org .
Why does my non-private instance need to be closed when I open a private browsing instance? Is this something that you plan to address or is it by design? Feel free to track the work being done on Per Window Private Browsing here : Link to bugzilla.mozilla.org . The wiki is here : Link to wiki.mozilla.org
Which addons do you think would be in the top 3 "must-have" if you guys took a poll? (okay, this would be a poll of just myself :P)
It seems PCs and OSs are becoming increasingly locked down - tightly controlled App Stores, Restricted Boot etc - which actively discourage third party applications like browsers or make them impossible to install or compete fairly with the native one. What future do you see for Mozilla in a world where computers become thin clients on which the users have minimal control and just accept the defaults? This is why we are building Firefox OS we think that while OSs are currently locked down that it doesn't need to be the trend for all time.
Firefox OS, just like Firefox browser, is not aiming to take over the world and force everyone else out (unlike what our competitors would like in both cases.) We want to have an open platform that forces platforms to also embrace open standards. Shake things up and make them better for humans instead of only getting better for corporations.
I am a Firefox fan and a programmer. I would like to be able to see Firefox with eyes of a developer by making changes in code and building it. The issue is that I always get put off by thinking about creating the build environment. Creating a build environment for Firefox is too complicated. Could you guys please create a build VM template which people like me can download and get to fiddle around? Check out foxinabox. It's just what you need. Thanks a lot for using Firefox by the way. :)
You can still release a ton of point releases on a regular schedule, but save the major version number for major changes. Instead of calling this version 18 or whatever crazy high number it is, you could call it 5.6.3 or something. No significant changes have been made since 5.0, so the question is, why the version number? Because version numbers don't matter. Let's pretend they did matter, and you could know that FF 6 contained at least one "major change". How do you define that? Do you still have some kind of schedule for when major changes occur? What if you suddenly need to make a "major change" due to a 0-day security bug that threatens users? Do your updating rules change for major releases? The point is, version numbers are arbitrary. Many people associate them with big things like UI refreshes, or a new JIT engine, but there's a host of things that could constitute "major changes" that are harder to market in a traditional way. When we are releasing new versions every 6 weeks, it is counter-productive to limit the changes we're allowed to make in a particular cycle due to an arbitrary number.
Let's not fuck around here, is it also partially do with "bigger is better"? Agreed, let's not fuck around. No.
I actually have a question for Mozillians: Favorite video game, and why? At the moment it is Starcraft 2. We have a team for the After Hours Gaming League hosted by Day[9]. That or The War Z. edit: forgot the why!
I like TF2. Because hats. Portal 2. Because Cave Johnston.
I have lot of questions to ask, please ignore any mistake on my part and I hope you answer all of the in simple noob English. Thanks in advance. Thank you so much for using Firefox and for your questions! :-)
Arrange according to importance highest to lowest. Performance as in less memory etc. Security and privacy from viruses and trackers respectively. Feature as in integration of social stuff etc. Innovation as in pdf.js etc. Security and Privacy, Performance, Features.
In regards to your codebase, has your C++0x usage been rising? With the latest improvements in GCC (sadly not in MSVC), I'd would have expected your use of C++11 to rise? Also, nearly every C++ book has references to the new standard, I'm sure this has a positive effect on the volume of C++11 you get now? Can any of you confirm this? On a side note, this question is related: I'm thinking of contributing a patch, though I tend to write a lot of 0x; thus I would like to know if it is acceptable? We're starting to incorporate some more recent C++ features that can degrade nicely through the use of macros to compilers that don't support them (such as nullptr, strong enum classes, and other things I forget). Given that we support a fairly varied range of compilers (consider that we build the same code across Windows, Linux, Mac [recently dropped support for Apple's gcc], and Android [fun times there]), we often have to be conservative in what we accept. We also have very little STL usage in the main codebase, so if you feel like that's going to totally turn you off writing code for us... be forewarned?
What is the problem with flash? Why does firefox DIE when I open 10 youtube videos? It begins to stutter. I did not have this problem on the same computer 3 years ago. I'm sorry to hear about your problems with Flash. To fix your problem, please take a look at this KB article on SUMO.
Why does it take so long for firefox to close (obviously you repaired it, in the past it would take 2-3 minutes; now 10-20 seconds). For this problem, please read this article that will hopefully fix your problem. :)
Why does firefox not give any warnings when a new addon is installed when I install external software? E.g. I installed an antivirus and it put some crappy addon into firefox - the antivirus did not ask me for this; firefox did not warn me about this either. Unfortunately, there's no way to prevent that from happening. In this case, it's the anti virus program's fault.
Why does my computer DIE when I try to search in history? Has anyone tested it, or is it some forgotten part of the program that gets no love? This is probably because your history is pretty long. There's right now no way to fix this, sorry about that. But I'm sure that there'll be some updates... Thanks a lot for using Firefox and for stopping by. :)
Hey, I will read those articles, I simply wonder if you could implement some sanity check in the search? I mean, it should not kill the computer by opening it and entering few letters. Awesome. If I remember correctly, someone if already working on it.
So stay tuned. :-) And thanks a lot for dropping by.
I read the articles and all they said was to update flash and turn off hardware accelearation. Oh well. Did you try it and did it work? :)
Would completion of Firefox Electrolysis meet or exceed Google Chrome security-wise (sandboxing, etc.)? This is a tricky one, as Apple's rules prevent us from using our own rendering engine or JavaScript engine on iOS, so anything we do would basically be Safari with a different UI and inferior JS support (which is what Dolphin and Chrome for iOS are). We do have an ongoing research project called "Junior", but it is not really ready for prime-time, though.
Do you know the status of built-in PDF support, Australis redesign, h.264/h.265 support? Does Mozilla ever plan on making any hardware (Firefox phone, etc.)? I assume "built-in PDF support" refers to pdf.js. Well, it works quite nicely, I am using it regularly. It is, however, an add-on, not a built-in feature.
Do you plan to submit Firefox to the Mac App Store? We have no plans to build any hardware by ourselves at the moment – this is a completely different industry. However, Firefox OS phones are on the way.
Thanks for replying. I thought of two more questions. Thanks for the link, I had never heard about that project.
Your thoughts on optimization of Firefox like Pale Moon, which is able to speed up Firefox by removing outdated hardware support. Will Mozilla speed up Firefox in future versions? I do not have a definitive reply on this topic. Removing support for old CPUs makes sense, if done properly (i.e. if we do not drop users along the way). I will have to discuss this with colleagues of the Performance Team.
Is Mozilla working with EFF to include "HTTPS Everywhere" in Mozilla Add-on Marketplace? (I have no idea about your second question)
Link to www.reddit.com. Check this out : Link to blog.lizardwrangler.com and in no way this is the end for Thunderbird. It has a strong support and an awesome community and I feel it'll always keep on getting better, just that now you have a better chance to show your love towards it by supporting it and implemennting the features which you feel are important.
That makes me very happy. I switch to the ESR build because I thought it would be around the longest, I'm glad it won't die. No problem, you're welcome! :-)
Does your UK office need a tea boy this summer? Perhaps one studying Computing at university? Because if so, I'm totally available. You can join the local community and try visiting the london open space] ([Link to thenextweb.com - there you can find all kind of opportunities :D.
Please? Let me ask around about internships in UK, I'll get back to you.
I... Did not know about that. I may show up when I can. Unfortunately, I live in Liverpool, but next time I'm down south, I'll say hello. :) Mozilla looks for interns pretty often, you can go there Link to careers.mozilla.org to know more about them ;) Pretty straight-forward concerning volunteering! Link to whatcanidoformozilla.org and Link to www.mozilla.org should get your started quite quickly :) Hey - taka a look at this page and choose your favourite domain. Someone from mozilla will answer to you with more details.
I have another question. How can I volunteer for Mozilla?
What ever happened to the red pandas? They moved to a new zoo/park that is way bigger. :-) So that they can live in a more comfortable way and be as free as... Firefox.
Are there any plans for future creature cams? Have you guys received any new pictures/updates on them? Not right now, maybe next year. I'm not sure, but I'd of course love to see some baby pandas again.
We unfortunately don't receive any updates, but since they moved to a bigger place, we're sure that they are doing pretty well. :)
Okay, I gotta ask. Why aren't you using smart pointers? Are we coding in C or something? Oh, we use smart pointers. If only it were so simple!
Here's example of the kind of complexity we face: With traditional refcounting, one problem you encounter is cycles. That is, if A points to B and B points to A, then when nothing points to A or B any longer, we should delete both A and B, but they both have a refcount of 1 and don't get deleted. Any refcounting scheme has to deal with this somehow.
But in Firefox, we can have the situation where A is a refcounted C++ object and B is a JavaScript object. JS objects are garbage collected. So that means our C++ cycle-detection code and our JS garbage collector are inexorably tied together.
Oh, and a garbage/cycle collection event needs to run in no more than 20ms or so. Have fun. :)
There's a lot of really zealous people out there who act as crusaders for their browser of choice, constantly insulting other browsers and the teams that work hard on them. A lot of us who work on Web Standards have to work with developers working on other browsers, since many a time, it's their spec that we're implementing or vice versa or some general discussion on things like ES6 etc. We don't have any hostility towards them and quite a lot of time, the interaction is very healthy. We collaborated recently with technical writers from a lot of companies to come up with this awesome site on documentation : Link to www.webplatform.org . It could never have happened withouth good interaction.
In my mind, however, I like to imagine that the Firefox/Chrome/IE/Opera/Safari/etc. dev teams get along pretty well with each other even if they disagree on development approaches. Is this generally the case or is there actually an attitude of hostility with other browser teams? Or do you not interact with other browser teams enough to have strong opinions of them? Mozilla aims to make the Web more open and better for the user and we don't just aim to make the other browsers feel bad or just aim at getting our browser share high.
How do you feel about Brendan Eich's donation to California Prop 8 in Mozilla's name? Let me clarify something first: he didn't donate to Proposition 8 in Mozilla name. But if your donation exceeds a certain amount, you /have/ to indicate your employer too. Now, Mozilla is a really huge community. Diversity plays a huge role. There are black people, white people, men, women, kids, Africans, Asians, Europeans, Muslims, Christians, straight and gay people. Luckily, there’s no discrimination going on. All members are respecting each other, which is a very good thing. Of course you don't need to agree with every opinion, but in a community, you have to respect every member - even their opinions. And having your own opinion is important. In fact, it’s one of the main reasons why Mozilla and many other organizations are so successful. We promote choice. We don’t do things like the others do, we do it in a way in which we think about other people, because doing something without keeping other people in your mind would be egoistic. Mozilla is definitely one of the best communities ever. The members are very accepting and understanding and a single opinion or donation can never represent the whole Mozilla community.
How do I get youtube videos to play??? Everytime I try to watch one a static-y screen comes up and says something like "An Error Occurred, Try again later". Please make sure that your Flash player isn't outdated. Try again and update it. If that still doesn't work, check out SUMO - you'll definitely find an answer there. :-)
Trying again later doesn't help. :( I feel this might be a problem with your Adobe Flash Player. Please try reinstalling it or maybe updating to the latest version. After doing that you could try starting with a clean profile and if all this doesn't work out, please check out SUMO
I've updated, but I'll check out SUMO at lunch. Thanks :) No problem, you're welcome. Good luck. :)
Any reason for the slow development for OSX? (It used to be faster...maybe it's just my imagination?) The development is actually not that slow at the moment - we're working on the support of tabs in the title bar and we're almost done. You can expect part a new theme in Firefox 19 along with even more improvements. :-)
Retina support took forever Lion scrollbars are still not supported (the current ones are NOT adequate at all :/) Slow development on OS X (I presume you're talking about OS X-specific features, since the rest of Firefox proceeds in lockstep) happens because we are severely shorthanded on developers who can and want to write OS X integration code. If you know any, send them my way - we have paid openings, as well as a long list of things we would love a motivated volunteer contributor to take on.
Good to hear, tabs in the titlebar is something I was almost beginning to accept that it wasn't going to come :P. Any news on the scrollbars? Are they going to stay the way they are now? It's a known bug and a developer has already submitted over 15 patches. Some of them have also been approved so far, so yeah, we're working on fixing it. :-) Thanks for stopping by.
Thanks, glad to see the current scrollbars are actually not intended to stay. No problem, you're welcome. :-)
I'm an OS X user too and just as glad about this as you are. :)
I've only got one thing keeping me from using Firefox on my phone: is there a faster way to Google something other than going to the website and searching from there? I've tried searching from the address bar :( Did searching from the address bar not work for you?
What's up with the version number boosting? Who cares if you're way behind Chrome or IE? I've been happy with Firefox for years, but ever since you decided to release a new build every two or three months it has gone down the hill. It's constantly freezing and it's annoying to keep it up to date, since the built-in updater won't work? I must admit I've changed to Chrome :( The change of release-cycle wasn't supported by a will to catch up numbers (what are numbers worth anyway ? :p). It's to match the "release early, release early" philosophy. Features are released more often to the users and the transition is smoother.
Also, the updates are silent and will be even more silent in the future iirc. Basically just like Chrome, you wouldn't even realise you have the brand-new version, but you are running it!
Ah so you bring in smaller changes but more often. The silent update feature is really cool, might check it out again in the future! Thanks for the answer! Not always smaller changes ;) Users won't have to wait for almost a year to use the cutting-edge technologies now! Thanks for passing by ;)
Is there anything the community did that really took you by surprise? Also, I can't wait for Firefox Flicks 2013! Really, it was how friendly and welcoming they were, for me. I'm sure when I first joined, I was the typical "I know nothing what is this I don't even" noob person, but they helped me all along the way, and still do. Organizing this event was a huge community effort, I couldn't have done it without each and every person who's on the list above, 45 of them as of now.
When I submitted my first patch, I remember doing all kinds of stupid errors in it and hence the patch was rejected. But before anyone told me that my patch is wrong, the first thing they did was to encourage and appreciate my effort and were so good, that I didn't feel bad and in fact wanted to get that patch landed. I had tried to contbute to another Open Source Project before this but the community and the kind of support I got here, was unparalled.
Threre was no turning back for me. It's been a wonderful 5 months since my first patch and I still feel the same energy.
I am each day impressed and encouraged by their energy and knowledge - I am alsways helped outon IRC, on bugs which each project.
I learn new things - like this Reddit thing :D.
And don't even let me start talking about how awesoem are some community events.. I wan't finish in a week..
The community rules for me! It rocks!
Why is firefox's privacy mode not like chrome's with the ability to have both kinds of sessions open simultaneously? I'm sure I'm not the only person who may have some 20 - 40 tabs open when the need to, um, shop for gifts arises and having those 20-40 tabs all reload is a bit of a pain. Extensions are likely a big source of this. Currently extensions have access to find out about all open tabs (and maybe even windows, not sure), mixing private and non-private tabs means a lot more complexity for our add-on handling code. There is likely a ticket for something like this but I didn't see it when I briefly searched.
I keep 100+ tabs open at once, so I feel your pain. One of the things I do to mitigate restart times is to check "Don't load tabs until selected," under the Preferences->Tabs section. Total life saver for me.
What is up with the Firefox memory leak? Why can I not leave my browser running continuously for a week without it consuming 3-4Gb of my RAM for no reason? Also, why, when I close said Firefox process, why don't I always get that memory back? We are trying out best to fix memory leaks, in the meanwhile you can try to make your Firefox faster by using the SUMO KB. Thanks for stopping by! :-)
Both of the assertions in this statement are false, for future reference. We covered this in a recent security review for private browsing. It's possible I am remembering the details wrong but I do know there is discussion of private and non-private browsing simultaneously.
Holy crap, you actually responded! Thanks for that! No problem, you're welcome. :-)
Just want to say, memory leaks or not, I love Firefox, and I'll keep using it until Internet Explorer gets their act together (read: will probably never happen). Thank you so much for using Firefox, you rock! :D.
64-bit, when is it happening? Right now, we only support 64-bit on OS X and Linux. There's a tracking bug on how far the implementation of 64-bit on Windows is done, and as you can see in the "Depends on" section, there aren't many active bugs anymore. The three major problems right now are: Plug-in support, accessibility support and we're not sure what to do if users have both 32-bit and 64-bit Firefox installed. But anyway, stay tuned and check this page once in a while to get to know about the latest status. :) Thanks for using Firefox!
Why is your codebase in C++? We use a bunch of languages in our code base. A detailed analysis is here : Link to www.ohloh.net
We use C++ because it's popular and many developers know it. Oh, and it works on all operating systems we support. :-)
As mentioned by sawrubh, the codebase is not only in C++.
However, indeed, the backbone of the Mozilla Platform is written in C++. This language was chosen for the following reasons: - when Mozilla was started, it was available and well-tested on all the platforms we targeted at the time; - it interacts smoothly with C, which is pretty much a requirement for all the low-level tasks we need to handle on just about every platform; - it can be customized to do just about everything; - it is fast.
However, since the start of the project, a new language has appeared that: - is available and well-tested on all platforms targeted by Mozilla; - is able to interact well with C; - can be customized to do most things; - is fast enough.
Interestingly enough, this language is called JavaScript and it is already part of the Mozilla Platform. So, as we maintain the code, whenever we realize that some component would be better implemented in JavaScript rather than in C++, we port this code.
Also, we are currently experimenting with a new language called Rust, a system-oriented. If, as we hope, Rust proves to be a better C++ than C++, we will end up progressively migrating part of the C++ code to Rust.
What is your attitude towards small noncompetitive browsers like QupZilla, Midori etc? We encourage any open source software initiative.
We love anything which keeps the users happy. If you feel QupZilla or Midori fulfills your needs, that's great. It just means that we have succeeded in our mission to make the Web more Open and accessible for everyone.

2011.01.12 04:40 indigestion Geek dumped over a gut feeling. Are there any other gay geeks?

I'm almost 29 living in the conservative American midwest and, as far as I knew, the only reasonably attractive gay geek for hundreds of miles. I met an awesome guy at a Halloween party--I knew there was a connection when he asked if I'm running Cyanogenmod my Droid. He hard-core pursued me, and we started dated.
It was perfect: He was a sysadmin, I'm an OSS developer. Our first date was at Microcenter! We spent our days out at the Apple store; we spent our nights in watching Dr Who.
Two months later (aka "yesterday") out of the blue he dumps me over a "gut feeling." He didn't meet someone else; he didn't stop liking me; he said he has a gut feeling that it won't work out. He made it clear he won't reconsider.
I'm borderline distressed. This is the first relationship in about 5 years that I seriously thought might work. I'm fighting the urge to beg. Should I?
How do other gay geeks meet compatible types? We're not usually the sort for clubs, gay bars, or the stereotypical (at least to the midwest) gay culture. Reddit gays, advise me!
lt;dr: Gay geek dumped by another gay geek. Slightly distraught. To beg or not to beg? Where are the cute gay geeks?
