Re: Would you have s*x with Dh for $100?
I would have s*x with my husband for free. I think it’s kind of strange to make jokes about being paid for it. I also wonder what is wrong in a relationship where one person has to offer money to their spouse just for sex. It’s not a game or a business deal, it’s making love to a person that you love with all your heart, there is NO monetary value to something so special.I spent money on fluff when my dh bought himself a Wii. That was his toy and these are my toys, kinda.

Re: Would you have s*x with Dh for $100?
I am glad I am not the only one that feels like being paid for s*x is just wrong. I agree with previous poster, I don’t need to be paid for having sex and I sure dont need to ask for money for diapers. I guess if i was all about blowing extra money on high end diapers, 100$ would seem nice, but we like to save money and have sex because the mood is right. Being offered money would be such a turn off. Expecially if it was for something as crucial as DIAPERS! I just got off the phone with DH, told him about that poll, and he just laughed…”that doesn’t make any sense, you can buy diapers if you need to and we will have sex when we need to, sepration of church and state, baby!” LOL:giggle:

Re: Would you have s*x with Dh for $100?
why on earth would your own dh have to pay you to have s*x with him??? I voted other because I think I would feel like a prostitute if my dh had to pay me money to get it on with him. I must be missing something…:headscratch:

Re: Would you have s*x with Dh for $100?
:rant: Let me start by saying that dh & I have a healthy s3x life. We are also a very playful couple that would do just do just about anything the other one asked.:wub: So, that said, here’s what happened. Dh is a nurse & worked over late. After work, we hung out, talked & watched TV. Before bed (about 3am) someone pm’ed me about some stuff on fsot. We were on our way to bed & I was dead tired & he came on to me & I said I was sleepy. That’s when he said (tongue & cheek) “if you do, I’ll let you spend $100 on diapers, hehe :hehe2:
We started laughing & then it just went from there.:giggle2:I get really offended that some people compare this to prostitution! :jawdrop: This is a far cry from screwing a stranger for money! I don’t know any prostitutes who are there for better or worse! I bet those same people agree to do it, late at night, w/ their dh, if he will get up w/ kids in the morning. How is that any different?:headscratch: I call it an exchange of favors between partners! Isn’t that what marriage is all about? Compromise?

I really pitty a relationship where there can’t be a higher level of compromise. Because in my relationship, WE can tell each other when, how, & which way we want it without blushing.:blush: Now put that in your pipes & smoke it!

FYI. DH told me to tell the Nay sayers it was worth every penney!:moon:

Re: Would you have s*x with Dh for $100?
LOL this is a funny thread! I “bought” my son’s name with BJ’s, so yeah, I’d “buy” diapers with sex LOL. It’s all in good fun!

Re: Would you have s*x with Dh for $100?
I’d be downright offended if my DH offered me money, I dont care what it’s for, that isn’t something that can be bought and I totally just couldn’t do it.

So, what do you think? Is it prostitution? A little freaky? A little dirty? All in good fun? Just a bit of motivation? I find myself strangely intrigued by women willing to have sex in exchange for $100 from the SO. Is it just fun role playing? Or is it someone that’s really not in the mood, just having sex because she wants diaper money? I’m hoping it’s role playing, and people aren’t having sex against their own feelings. That doesn’t scream “healthy sexual relationship.” And seriously, if you’ve become so desperate for diaper cash, that you’d do it, it might be time to rethink the whole diapering addiction.

Anyway, have fun, have sex, but only do it if you want it. Don’t do it for diapers.


Wow, now this one totally backfired on you!

Faulty Logic:
I know you all are probably sick of me complaining about the boy I watch, but this from his dad takes the cake. I was taking dc kid out of his infant carseat (MUCH too small) the other day and I was having a hard time getting the buckle undone. His dad got all concerned that I may have caught his penis in the buckle and I need to be careful of his “boy parts” with that buckle. This is the SAME dad that 1/2 the boy’s penis cut off at one day old thru circ. :headscratch: WHY be concerned about his penis now if you weren’t when he was a newborn?
:soapbox:
Now, it doesn’t matter what side of the circ/no circ debate you’re on. I think we can all agree that regardless of whether the penis is circ’d or not, it should still be treated with care. YOU as a day care provider are in the wrong, and I have no problem telling you why.
  1. You should be careful about putting the kids in their car seats, and the father shouldn’t have had to be worried about you hurting his kid’s penis.
  2. If he’s not in the right seat, you need to say something to them, rather than bitching on Diaper Swappers.
  3. You could have a little more tact as a day care provider! Posting your gripes on Diaper Swappers is super lame.

Honestly, the only faulty logic here is you thinking it’s OK for you to hurt his kid’s penis because it’s circumcised now and not worthy of any caution. That’s just ignorant.

i feel the need to speak my mind
i am not trying to start any drama but i must post what’s bothering me. i get the feeling that people are buying these hard to get GM’s just to resell them for profit. now i know that they can do whatever they please with their own items but COME ON!!! brand new it pack diapers being auctioned off just moments after receiving them?!?!?!? it is wrong imo!!! there are mamas that are really wanting to buy them to use them but this isn’t happening because others are greedy!!! shame, shame, shame!!! :nono:let the flaming begin. :bagoverhead:btw, i love my 15 GM’s and wish everyone could own at least 1. :mrgreen:
Wow, you’ve got 15 GMs.  You could always balance out the market a bit by selling some of yours for $30.
felix23 02-25-2008 09:18 PM

Re: i feel the need to speak my mind
If you don’t like the price, don’t buy it. I really don’t see what the big deal is.If I went to a yardsale and bought an item for $1 but then later found out that I could sell it for much, much more, I would do it in a heart-beat. It is the same thing with GMs. People are buying them for one price and realizing that they can sell them for much, much more. An item will only sell for as much as someone is willing to pay.
Ding, ding, ding.  If no one was buying, the prices wouldn’t be so high.  People want to pay a bunch for the diaper, that’s their prerogative.

Re: i feel the need to speak my mind
It’s a free market and I can’t control what people do with their property, which is what the diapers are after they buy them.Price policing in forums has always bothered me. I know people who have been afraid to sell diapers they bought used because they couldn’t remember how much they paid and they were afraid someone would give them grief over their prices. (That wasn’t even in DS, so I am not speaking about any specific situation from here.) However! I had NO IDEA this would happen. When I put the auctions up on HC last week I did it for fun and variety. I did every kind of sale on HC for spice and interest. I thought *maybe* they would go up to $45. MAYBE. It seems like ever since I did those auctions, there have been a million of them go up. Honestly it completely blows my mind.The truth is, we don’t know everyone’s story or why they are selling. I do know that a lot of people who bought Wish Boxes knew they were going to have to sell some of what they got, but I also know none of them thought they would get more than retail for them 10 weeks ago.

It’s also true that people who have the money to spend/have more money than time will pay a premium for something they want and do not have the time to stalk. We can’t really regulate that at all. It’s a free economy.

However, how each of us feel about things being sold over retail obviously varies from person to person. I guess we can marvel in our differences because everyone has a different perspective.

I admit it made my eyes pop out to see these diapers we work so feverishly to produce being resold at a high profit, but also, it’s a compliment to our product and the brand I have worked so hard to build. And like has been said, it does increase the market value. I mean, at least you know if it doesn’t work for you that you can resell it without losing money, and that means a lot to someone who doesn’t want to risk a lot when they try a new diaper.

Honestly and truly my real plea is not so much to stop auctioning the diapers, but I would LOVE for my business to not be constantly associated with drama. I don’t know how to get around that, however. But if anyone is wondering what Suzanne really wants, that is it. I know so, SO many of you have worked hard to avoid the “goodmama drama”, like making friendly faqs, keeping peace in threads, patiently answering questions, ignoring trolling, etc. I appreciate it so much. I really do.

Okay back to changing the photos on the site. Maybe it would be something new to talk about. :goodvibes:

Now, if your leader can’t persuade you, who knows what will.

Really, truly, how much are you going to pay for a diaper with poop in it? $0, $5, $10, $15, $20?? If you’ve been stalking a poopy diaper, I do believe Kim has got a winner for you!!!

Kim 02-25-2008 02:32 PM

I’m totally Appauled. Updated NOT HAPPY.

I bought a luxe fitted off of spots and the listing said light staining on the inside near the leg, ebf poo, will probably sun out…..yeah well it IS just a LITTLE bit….but it is NOT just STAINING, It’s friggin’ CRUSTED POOP. Crusted effin’ poop dude.:yuck:

I needed to let this out here with my anger before I contact the seller. This is so unexceptable to me. :yuck: :yuck: :yuck: :yuck: :yuck:

COMMUNICATION WITH SELLER:

Me:
Hi there. I was the mama that purchased the small luxe fitted from you on spots corner. I received it today, and while the diaper is very pretty, the small stain that you mentioned in the listing is actually crusted poop. It is all hard and crusty and in between the crevices of the elastic on the leg. I have never had something like this happen to me while purchasing items on Spots or DS. I still want the diaper, and I plan on soaking it and then running it through a hot wash a few times, but I feel like I should be refunded something for this. I certainly would not expect to receive a dirty diaper for $20.

Please let me know how you would like to handle this situation.

Respectfully,
Kim

Seller:
Go ahead and send the diaper back and I will refund you the money. In my inspection, it was a stain and due to the rain I had no chance to sun the diaper. I assure you I wash my diapers well in Allens on hot and multiple washes- I’m sorry for this. While I don’t feel comfortable refunding you partially for a stain that can be trated (and was stated in the listing- re: the sunning and the stain) I would rather you send the diaper back for a full refund (and I’ll pay the refunded shipping as well) so that I may treat the stain accordingly.


Me:
There is NO doubt about it, there is crust on the inside leg inside the crevices of the elastic….I would NEVER make something up about this. I have no doubt that you wash your diapers mama, I am not saying you don’t. It looks like the poop was caught into the crevices of the diaper leg opening. I want the diaper, so I will just keep it, but I do feel that since I received a dirty diaper in the mail, I should be compensated something. But if your not willing to do that, there is nothing I can do. I will just keep the diaper. Would you like me to send you up close pictures of it? I can do that….it is quite obvious. If not, I guess I will just have to wash it and hope it hasn’t been there long. I must say I am very disappointed in the outcome here, and I feel that I will need to leave feedback accordingly.

Kim

Now seriously, here. We need a picture. But, looking at this at face value, if you get a diaper, that’s nasty, with crusted poop in it, you deserve some money back. And if the mama is willing to eat the cost of shipping back, why not just offer a few bucks off for your mistake?

Either way, that’s a crappy situation. (pun intended)


I got this hilarious email, unfortunately, the thread was deleted.  I’d seen it earlier today and it was hilarious.  I had to go out and by the time I checked my email, it was gone!! Thanks for the email, but next time, please include a link to the thread too. 🙂

Get the sand out of your…
… vagina’s. Who cares if there are millions of threads about GMs its a hot topic right now and not everyone knows about the FAQ and yes alot of woman who dont have a sugar daddy or make a tri fig a year cant figure out why you can spend so much on a diaper that needs to be covered anyways. You dont have to answer you dont have to go in to the thread and rant and rave and say its been over asked.

I like GMs I think there cute and being OS make them even better(I even dream about being able to finally buy one) but the one thing I dont like about them is that it brings out the b!tch in the woman who buy them.

So ladies do me a favor and chill out go clean your snatch out put on a fresh pair of panties and try to not let them get in a wad cause like you getting sick of seeing the threads about gms I am sick of all the negative crap spewing from your chat holes.

Such a good message, wonder why it was deleted. lol

There’s a long ass thread going on right now. I couldn’t get too much, just because of the sheer massiveness, but this, you gotta see.

that my Goodmama was funded by formula.I got two full size cans of formula in a “Breastfeeding Support Kit” from Similac. I returned them to Wal-Mart (they take anything:blush: ) and got cash…$34 to be exact.For whatever reason that just makes me giggle.
So, what do you think happens when you put Breastfeeding, Formula, Wal-Mart, Goodmamas, and DS together??

Walmart will accept anything back…besides my husbands bb gun that turned out to have a broken scope. No returns on bb guns at all, grrr, $100 down the drain and it is just sitting in our laundry room.You probably should have kept the formula for just in case. You just never know what will happen and you might need the formula.

Re: Haha, I just realized…
And it is exactly threads like this that make moms who formula feed feel like crap. I used to work for one of those “big, nasty” formula companies. I did and am currently exclusively breastfeeding and I had an entire garage full of formula at my disposal. There are so many dymanics that go into breastfeeding. For some it is so easy, for some it is near impossible. I think it is so sad that moms have to be so judgmental really. And what is up with calling a company evil and nasty that you know NOTHING about?
Shabbychic 02-24-2008 12:53 PM

Re: Haha, I just realized…
I am really horrified by the whole discussion surrounding the return of the can of formula.To the OP. What you did was theft, plain and simple. I don’t care if it was Wal-Mart or a WAHM. You took an item to a store that the store had not paid for and took money from them. If they do sell the can, which I do or do not know, they will be selling YOUR can, not the one purchased from Similac, by them. Now, to make their money back, they need to sell 2 cans, not 1. I don’t care one bit what you think about Wal-Mart and their business practices. What you did was unethical and illegal. You STOLE $34.00 from Wal-Mart. Twist it, turn it, try to justify it, you STOLE.And, in addition to that, I am hopeful for you that when you have your baby you are able to feed him or her the way you wish, but goodness gracious if you end up needing formula, I hope you realize that it is not to be degraded and used for theft, it is used for people to feed the children that they love and there are people out there that NEED it.I hope if anything, you can realize that what you did was wrong and maybe you should go buy 2 cans of formula and donate them so someone’s baby can eat. And, if you need to steal to buy a Goodmama, then try a prefold, they work great.

It’s only on the internet, as with nursing in public, god forbid anyone see, we make headlines! It is common knowledge that formula is inferior, no matter the situation, legitimate or not, formula will ALWAYS be inferior. That’s just life. Sometimes we have to take risks, sometimes the benefits outweigh the risks, does formula feeding make you a less loving mother, NO! Absolutely not! I am so sorry if I offended anybody, I don’t mean to..honestly, I have jealousy issues surrounding nursing 😥 I pump and alternatively feed my daughter, it’s hard work..but it’s worth it to me, I don’t know why I’m rambling on :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: sorry for the drama 😥

you see mama…i know you probably didn’t mean this but calling formula inferior, that TO ME is like calling what i do for my child inferior. THAT is why i feel attacked. because i am told that my child will never be as smart, as healthy, as wonderful as a BFed baby. both sides are judged but just because you haven’t seen the other judged doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. :hugs:

Re: Haha, I just realized…
hmmmm…there goes the thought of me ever wanting to buy a GM…..
Anyway, it just doesn’t end. Everything everyone is saying is being twisted to be one thing or another. It’s so funny to see people get upset over what they “imply” from post, rather than what is written. No one will be right in this thread, but I can be right on the blog. lol
  1. Breastfeeding is best. Formula is not as good as breastmilk. Using formula does not mean your child is not as good as a breastfed child.
  2. When breastfeeding is not an option (for whatever reason) and you don’t want breastmilk from a bank or whatever, use formula, rather than Diet Pepsi.
  3. It’s wrong to return something to a store for profit. If you’re ok with that, then fine. If you feel it goes against your morals, good.
  4. Walmart sucks, but you suck just as bad when you scam them or steal from them.
  5. Formula companies suck for sabotaging breastfeeding moms with their “support kits,” but we should be happy it’s there rather than some scarier choices for those that don’t breastfeed.
  6. Chill out, mommy wars suck!

Some of you can tell, the blog has slowed down.  I just haven’t been on my computer much these last few days. Unfortunately, that means I miss the drama. And that’s no fun. But, I found bitching ABOUT the drama.  Almost just as good, right?

For God sake, there is a war on, out country is in a recession and on it’s way to a depression…people are dying every day, soldiers in other countries, rape, murder, robbery, child neglect, tons of people losing their jobs….so, so many things to be worried about and the people who have these moralistic values on this board get sooooo stinkingly stupidly upset about a STUPID DIAPER.

I’m sick of it and I am telling you, you all need to really get off your clouds and join us humans on planet earth. It is really ignorant to get upset over a diaper enough to be mean to another mama who is just trying to care for her children and her family.

Alright, you lost me here.  Diapers are NOT stupid. I personally have quite a few Genius diapers. 😉 I think Cottonbabies would agree with me here.
