    What's the best way to go about expressing unorthodox and possibly controversial views that I think are valid? By this I mean views that I'm pretty sure 95% of people would strongly disagree with me on, mostly due to misconceptions and inaccurate beliefs that I believe they possess regarding the issue.

    Going full frontal has never worked because that just pushes them further away. There's got to be a way to make it smoother.

    I'll think about it.

    On this forum it would probably be more like 75%.

I can tell she's been with a lot of guys since we first frolicked but I would do her again, and again, and again.

    I would never date her though. IT would have to be purely sexual.
    The only girl to make my sex drive feel normal was redheaded - also, my first truly sexual relationship.

    1) Why do you need to express them?

    2) I find that the best way to start these sorts of discussions is to ask people about their own beliefs -- picking them apart and finding the logic behind them.

    I hate sleep so much these days, it's so inconvenient.

    Also when is my flatmate going to stop having sex today? Three times already and counting. Keep. It. Down.

    I don't need to, but when people around me talk about it, it's hard to stay quiet.

    Also, I guess expressing them might make some small change for the better if I manage to convince someone of it.
