Pervometry: A hierarchical approach to MBOT scheduling. (Gonzallo Gonzista, 10/96) - First string is chicks I'm dying to see; I write their name in all caps next to the date. Second string: chicks that will serve as a good backup if the first stringers don't show; I write with first letter capitalized next to the date. Third string: new girls, and girls I'm vaguely interested in; I write their names in all lower case. Then, girls my buddies are interested in are prefaced with a _, but then get a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd string notation. Typically, after a PS or two, all 1st stringers drop to 3rd string, then work their way back up or fall off the list. From that, using skill and instinct, I choose the EXACT PERFECT DAY to go. The preferred web scheduling URL is www.acme.com/jp/MBOT. The backup schedule is http://www.ofarrell.com/sched_index.asp.

Raincoaters like raw strippers over 30 with big hair, fake tits and thigh-high come-fuck-me-boots, and, as long as she can squat and pump, don't really care if she can dance at all. RCs use SCing for the primal experience of carnal lust for its own sake. They often welcome the opportunity for an encounter that requires only the use of their reptilian hindbrain.
