And I think Liberty needs to actually embrace that as a viable option, even if she doesn't end up choosing it, in order to get her power back in their relationship. Right now, she probably feels stuck and helpless.

Aren't they married? Wouldn't the term be "divorce" not "dump"?

Sam dumps Liberty.
Sam finds a new girl named Imperia.

Sam falls to his darker tendencies with her but doesn't stop at porn.
Sam starts bullying his neighbors with loud music and democracy propaganda videos playing at full volume so that the whole neighborhood can hear.

Neighbors, who don't subscribe to democracy, get annoyed.
Sam goes over to a neighbor's house, kicks the neighbors out, and proclaims that he now lives there.
Sam then repeats the process with several more neighbors.

Sam sets his sights higher and sees the Dragon floating around all peaceful and content, knocking down Sam's cable satellite and roof ornaments. This makes Sam angry, but the Dragon simply floats by his window and shows him an IOU for 9+ trillion dollars signed by Sam. Sam slumps down into his chair, crosses his arms and pouts like a child.

No kidding, Xanthe. Lord knows there's plenty of countries in Europe who are receptive to her ideas, and Canada's right next door. So many better options than Sam, at this point.

Rune, I have such an urge to scream at you. Instead:
I like the idea of porn, and some porn. I have no problem with my husband watching all the porn he wants. I love liberating non-typical sex. I had some earlier. But no one should ever use porn to push you. Most porn is not made for the real world. Beyond that- no one should ever push the way that character seems to. Reading your partners response is not that difficult. If it is that difficult (if they give an enthusiastic no when they mean an enthusiastic yes), then they're not in a place to explore their sexuality- they're in a place to get some therapy.
I was going to leave you with an awesome site geared towards teens explaining the difference between porn and real life, but I lost the URL. However, searching porn expectations or porn vs reality is more than enough to explain why expecting your partner to imitate porn is ridiculous.

::EDIT: Ok, I misunderstood that (and that is my issue, not Rune's). Many apologies to Rune- I was projecting outside issues onto his comment. That is totally my fault.::

I think Rune was talking about the very viable option of Liberty dumping Sam.

But now I want a Canada personification. Need a name for them.

Whoa, whoa. Yes. Yes, the dumping as the viable option. Liberty has to believe that she actually has the power to do so, that she actually has the option to do so.

Ooooh. Well that makes way more sense. My fault. I'm seeing dudebros everywhere now. When the entire internet becomes "that bitch eating crackers" to me, you know it's past time for bed. Rune, I apologize from the bottom of my exhausted heart. It wasn't you, it was the sleep deprivation from parenting. My humblest apologies.

I have to say, that was an interesting misunderstanding. o_o I can see how it happened, though.

In my (horribly limited) defense, I had a short mention of feminism with someone I care about earlier, and the very idea of feminism as something that non-bitter women think about was scoffed at. I'm WAY too defensive tonight because of that, and again, I'm so so sorry. Your explanation makes much more sense than my poor assumption. I feel like poop now, because I don't normally do that. I'm normally much kinder and gentler.

On a separate note, anyone else ever wonder just how it is that some of these characters know each other?

For example, I think 'Nique address Liberty as "girlfriend" the very first time they were in a strip together (I could be wrong). What's that about? Doesn't that imply that they'd met at least once before? Sometimes it's almost as if the most interesting things that happen in this strip are the things we never see. And sometimes it's not like that. Wink

Meanwhile, Pebbles continues to exist in a virtual vacuum, regularly interacting only with Li'l E and Seymour. But it's the same old story, with so many characters, they can't all receive reasonable levels of attention.

Really, IMHO it's when Tat started expanding the cast larger and larger that the strip started to lose some of its fun silliness or silly funness. So it goes.

Oh my god there are newbies pouncing each other over misunderstood slights about who is or isn't a dudebro and it's like watching kittens learning to fight.

I think I'm just super excited there are newbies that aren't dudebros, also.

Heh. I'm new to the forums in this name. I had a different one around 11 or 12 years ago, but I'll be flummoxed to remember what it was. I lost track of sinfest as my world view changed, and then sinfest changed too. Glad to be back.
