Anaerobic Sex! Now that’s a workout I could go for!
I take it the two might be holding their breathe too long. Or sex that takes your breath away……all night long.
How the hell do you have anaerobic sex? Not Jin, ’cause I’d assume that as a Golem, she doesn’t need to breath, but what about her BF?
Didn’t wassis name from INXS die that way?
I’m pretty sure that guy who played Caine in “Kung Fu” did…
Sex that goes past the aerobic limits and into oxygen debt. Translation extremely vigorous sex.
Anaerobic sex, just so you know, means sex without oxegyn.
You probably meant Aerobic sex.
Muscles can operate without oxygen. If they’re being pushed harder and faster than they can operate with the oxygen available to them, they start to synthesize ATP by fermentation rather than oxidization. Which leads to lactic acid buildup in the muscles, and some pretty impressive soreness later.
Anaerobic exercise is exercise that depletes oxygen in the body faster than the body can replenish it within working muscle. As a result, muscles then take their energy from carbs, ATP, and CP, among other things.
I seriously doubt that the author was intending to use a more obscure definition than the most obvious one, especially when that alternate definition means her boyfriend would be dead.
Anerobic? So.. they both hold their breath until the pass out?
Umm — aerobic maybe, or is this an introduction to some ancient kinkyness the readers will speculate about endlessly?
Well, they’re going to anyway…. 😉
LOL is that a typo? Anaerobic means without oxygen and when you use it in working out, it means a short, intense workout of about 2 minutes. I’m hoping the boy can do better than that!
My new favorite phrase for the week! And it’s certainly nice to see Maya’s character being fleshed out some (so to speak)…
“Anaerobic sex” is an exaggeration of how strenuously each of them go at each other , you nerds! 🙂 Geeze!
I’m glad that it’s an exaggeration otherwise he’d be in pain from all the lactic acid.
…isn’t that the sign of a GOOD night?
Depends on how well-hydrated he is.
You know you love the fact that your entire reader-base (myself included) are a big bunch of nerds. 😉
Probably. It’s the endless picking of nits, however, that may become annoying.
That’s what the “comments” section should be renamed – “Comic Nitpickers”. 😉
Does that mean nitpickers of comics, or nitpickers who are comical?
wadda bout: The Peanit Gallery.
SoWhyMe: Do we really have to pick one?
I’m pretty sure all answers there apply.
Nit picking is essential. Otherwise we’d be covered in nits. Who would want that?
Sociologists tell us that, since we no longer pick bugs off each other as did our remote, and furrier, ancestors, we developed small talk in order to have a reason to interact. I think I prefer the bug picking.
More protein in bugs, at any rate.
What’s more impressive is that this implies that it’s NOT aerobic, which is a GOOD thing in my book. I can’t imagine anything more boring than “aerobic sex” Seriously, imho, if you’re doing it and you can hear Richard Simmons cheering you on, you’re doing it wrong.
(ok yes, i had played around with the idea of working out for a while and the word found it’s way into my vocab, but really, getting that mixed up with AEA? Seriously guys, come on!)
Oh, $DEITY! Now, every time I have sex for the next two weeks, my mind will be invaded by the image of that afroed grin shakin’ it to the oldies. :shudder: Thanks a lot, bud. 🙁
Bud’s not there. it’s only May and Jin. 😉
We are the picts that say Nit!
When I sprint, I hold my breath; makes me feel like I go faster, adds something visceral. I certainly can’t sprint very *long*, though…
I don’t know, it just like aerobic sex would be better. Longer lasting, lots of breathing, with work it can go for hours and would require stretching ahead of time.
Yes, and greater orgasms for her. The longer the sex, the stronger the orgasms.
But knowing Jin, Anaerobic sex is very fast very intense sex multiple times in a row. M would find this to be painful.
Up to a point. After a while the sex just leads to soreness in tender places. Not to mention that one can go beyond the pleasant stimulation of sex and cross over into “when the hell is this going to end?” territory. A point at which further stimulation no longer works. My mother referred to this point as a “draw.” No winners, no losers, just tired, sore participants.
What would be soreness for her would probably end up being combustion for him. XD
In a word, ‘NO’. Been there, done that, spent the next day, commando in sweatpants, bag of frozen peas in lap or walking like a cowboy. Never again.
This is why they make steel belted radial condoms. Don’t they?
I have see both sides of this. I have heard/seen couple of friends would get caught up in the moment, and had done it for 4 hours. They couldn’t touch each other for a week after that one, because the memory of soreness and the tensity of sex. They are still married, but children have slow them down.
I have been through whole weekends of not getting dressed and mostly in bed with a lover. It was more sleeping, cuddling, snacking and slow building orgasms in peaks. Maybe that doesn’t count..
Stretching, you say? Well, I’ve been trying it for years but haven’t seen much change really. Maybe I’m doing it wrong…
Well, that doesn’t stretch (much). But making sure you’re flexible before running through the unabridged Kama Sutra in a single session would probably be a god idea.
she does raise an excellent point, miss use of the word or not. For a woman who has had nothing for the past couple thousand years, it’s good she has something she can call her own
Jin had plenty over the years, including Monica’s grandpa. Many ended in heartbreak, however, since they would die and she had to carry on. This is one of the major reasons she wants to die.
That explains the “holding her breath” part. 😉
Perhaps she means erotic asphyxiation. Other than that I’m drawing a blank here. XD Whatever works, I suppose.
Autoerotic asphyxiation involves putting a plastic bag over your head, or slow strangulation with a cord or rope. Both involve lack of oxygen and are supposed to enhance orgasm. Unfortunately, people die from the practice from time to time. Especially those who attempt it alone during masturbation. Is this what they are talking about when they say anaerobic sex?
Sorry, Zig, didn’t see your post first.
Oh, and NOW I see Paul’s comment … Nevermind.
I dunno, I rather like the idea of goin’ at it till I get a stitch in my sinde… 🙂
Wouldn’t be closer to an anaerobic workout?
Anaerobic excercise is where your heart goes above 180 BPM, and is good for extending one’s limits.
Sex is, of course, one form of excercise.
It must be said:
Jin’s mom is awesome.
Noooooo. I mean, it’s uncomfortable enough to talk sex with your parents. Now imagine that your parent was capable of slicing a head with a gesture….
Alternately, because she’s a golem too, she might be one of the few beings that could paddle Jin and have her feel it. Of course, the neighborhood might not survive…
That makes me wonder. If she can’t feel pain or hot or cold, how is it she can feel pleasure? It would seem a steel dildo attached to a large hydraulic jack hammer would be required to even start to do the job. And even then it would have to be ribbed with big diamonds (cheerfully supplied by Bud).
It’s probably like Superman. Supes can actually feel heat, cold, tactile sensations, all sorts of things much more than a human being can. It’s just that, unless the sensory input is extraordinarly powerful, it can’t hurt him…
She can feel cold. On the next page, she implies that she can make herself impervious to cold if she is expecting it.
Good point. So she basically lets her defenses down to have sex. Or they may be down most of the time, just that they can be snapped back in a nanosecond or so when needed. The same may go for the super strength, which would explain why she doesn’t accidently snap Alan in two in a moment of passion.
Ya sure, “awesome,” till YOUR mom starts talking about whether your man lets you come first. XD
For fucking out loud, guys, what kind of internet people don’t know how to use Google? … damn!
Fucking out loud? Isn’t that what Jin wanted to keep to herself in the first place? 🙂
That said, I agree. Even a lazy slob like me knew that anaerobic exercise had nothing to do with holding one’s breath and more to do with heart rate, and if I didn’t, I have very strong Google-fu. I would have searched for it before posting a comment. 😛 Silly nerds.
If you think you already know what a word means, why would you look it up? And ‘anaerobic’ is one of those slippery words that have a variety of different connotations. The first time I saw a bottle of anaerobic sealant, I thought I had defective product… who would buy half a bottle of air? Turns out it doesn’t set until it’s deprived of air.
Why would I look up a word if I think I already know what it means? Because what I think might be wrong or incomplete, of course. An unusual use of a word often leads to new knowledge.
*points to Fatuncle’s comment* What he said. 🙂
Fatuncle, I’m sure you mean well, but that way madness lies. Nobody’s going to look up evey word that’s vaguely bothering them. What I was trying to get across (I realize I don’t express myself all that well, I haven’t really written at length in years) was that if you know what a word means, you’re not going to head for the dictionary. Otherwise, you’ll spend an hour in the dictionary for every ten minutes in your source material. Just do what the rest of us do, and go to the dictionary only if the sentence as read doesn’t make sense to you.
Alaric: said “…go to the dictionary only if the sentence as read doesn’t make sense…” is exactly what I meant. When I run across a familiar word in unfamiliar usage, if I can, I look it up.
And I read copiously, love the flavor of words, and seldom encounter one I don’t know, or can’t work out from context.
Face it. We just like to discuss/argue stuff. And we like to throw in more stuff to “enhance” those discussions. Especially if it’s strange. titillating, or otherwise possessing some possible shock value. It’s part of the nerd code. Facts or applicability aren’t always the initial motivating factor. We like to see what putting it into the mix will yield. Call it experimentation in social interaction. Nerds love to tinker.
Wait, so Jin’s boyfriend is a 2 minute man???
I can imagine Jin’s response. “Mom! Stop saying words!”
I believe her use of the term indicates the sex is incredibly breathtaking 🙂
to which I say
GO ALAN!! 😀
“Dude, you look great!” Yeah, thats because I’ve been workin out at the Jin….I MEAN GYM, yeah,thats it.
Jin, Your Mom is Hot! The Ultimate Cougar because EVERY Man is younger than her.
That would make Jin the penultimate cougar, since only her mother’s older than her (and that by under 1% lifespan difference).
I am so proud of fellow posters. It’s gone this far, and no jokes with the words “anorexic” or “aneurysm”. Although I did have a relative get those two mixed up once, while talking about an elder getting rushed to the hospital. I might have been able to stifle my laughter, but the image of a skinny person bursting in somebody’s neck was very jarring.
Soon to be a Far Side comic.
Silly rabbits, Anaerobic sex is much like Anaerobic exercise. Intense workout where the muscles are working faster than the body can supply oxygen which, if done correctly causes explosive orgasms for both partners, followed by an inability to move very much while you try to catch your breath.
Think sprint vs marathon
You know, there’s a term used in porn – “airtight”…
Shhhh! There are children around!
Anaerobic Sex! Sounds like fun.
As long as your heart holds out 😉
It’s all good , as long as you’re not a minute man
I missed this whole conversation somehow so I’ll chime in here.
You’ll help build up your karmic bank if you VOTE FOR WAPSI and as we all know, high karma can lead to anaerobic sex cause sometimes you gotta earn it!
Anaerobic Sex? How do they suck all the air out of the room first?
