TMI Tuesday #11

1. What was your favorite book as a kid?
It would be hard to single out just one book as a childhood favourite. My favourite series of books was 'Alfred Hitchcock & The Three Investigators' mysteries. I must have re-read some of those books up to half a dozen times. I really wanted to be an investigator and solve mysteries like those guys. I also like 'The Famous Five' and 'Secret Seven' series of books as well.

2. If you were stranded on that proverbial desert island (again!), what book or books (up to 5) would you want to have with you?
I don't really have any particular favourites that I would want to take so I will opt for some books that I haven't read yet. I have just been hooked by Laurell K Hamilton's 'Anita Blake' stories, so a few of those wouldn't go astray. Failing that, anything by my favourite authors. ... And, of course, I suppose a survival manual would be a good add.
And even the Karma Sutra, in case I wasn't alone on that island. After all, there wouldn't be much else to do so may as well try all the positions.

3. What was the first "naughty" book you read and in what way was it naughty?
The first 'naughty' books would have to be Dad's collection of magazines that I discovered under my parents bed. They gave me many hours of solitary pleasure... reading the articles, of course. What else would they be there for??

4. If you were to publish your autobiography today, what would be the title?
What about "The Best is Yet to Come".
Or perhaps "I'm Not Dead Yet".
Or "The Sexual Adventures of Middle Aged Man".
Or "The Temptation of Adam", but I have the feeling that one is already done.
If I had the time I am sure I could come up with several titles that are much better than these.

5. Would you rather look at nude pictures/pornography or read erotic fiction and why?
Both. Why limit myself? But if I had to choose then I would probably take erotic fiction. I guess that pictures is like take away food in that it is quick and provides instant gratification, but written work is more like fine dining and takes a lot longer to consume and ultimately can be far more satisfying.
But Hey, I like burgers and fries as much as dining out and there is definitely room for both in my life, so bring 'em on.

Bonus (as in optional):Do you know the whereabouts today of the first person with whom you had sex?
Sadly, I don't. I can't even remember her name, if I even knew it, because she was someone I met at a party and ended up having a drunken 'grope and poke' with. It probably wasn't very satisfying for either of us, but it got me on the scoreboard and things only got better from there.

These TMI Tuesdays are fun, aren't they? Almost as good as HNT . but not quite!

Great answers, Adam.

Bunny said...

Are you sure they were Dad's magazines and not Mom's?

Happy TMI!

Em said...

Your #5 answer seems to be the most popular. . .and I'd agree. Good analogy.

Polt said...

outstanding answer to #5. I agree with it entirely!

Amorous Rocker- Thanks for the updated locaion. I have made the changes.

MsBehavn- I love TMI's. I love HNT's, too, but I haven't been brave enough to post my own pics ...yet! I'll just continue to look at everyone else's awesome work.

Bunny- Now you got me thinking. They were under Dad's side of the bed,...but that could have been a ruse by Mum to divert suspicion? Hmmmm!!

Em- Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Hope to see you again real soon.

Polt- Glad you agree. Thanks for the hug. How did you know I needed one of those?

Redneck Vamp- Thanks for your comment. It was nice to have you stop by.
