Strictly Come Dancing, Week 9 Results

tess claudia 9

Strictly opens with Bruno and Craig “baking a cake” as the professional dancers enter a sweet, fluffy candy blast, complete with Artem, Aljaz and Kevin baking in oven mitts. James and Anton wheel on the cake as out pops Tory baker Mary Berry. (She wouldn’t let a black female win the baking contest in BBC’s Great British Bake Off.) There were also no tips from Chancellor George Osborne on how to bake a cake.

Tess and Claude pop on with a muffin and full bake get up on Claudia. After pretending to eat the cupcake with no bite made and a recap of the backstage goss (which hasn’t been shown this properly for nine weeks!) the results are revealed.

The first couple saved into next week, in no particular order is Natalie and Artem. Also going through is Ashley and Ola and Susanna and Kevin. The first couple facing the dance off is Mark and Iveta.

Il Divo

*Unspecified song by BBC and Media*

il divo scd

Opening with a string Orchestra the suited quartet of dapper chaps belted a powerful emphasis of classical sound upon Strictly. It was a first class performance as is often the case of Il Divo and their outstanding falsettos.

Len’s Lens

Down the lens we go. Mark was under scrutiny as Len give a masterclass of standing sway for extra tips.  Darcey commented on Ben and Kristina. We saw Ben in slow motion flexing his muscles once again. That’s his only selling point, like, ever. “Like someone having a draw string in his back” Craig said of Ashley dancing. Darcey spoke again as Bruno pulled faces. Bruno’s 10 mark handed to Natalie was discussed.” We want the dancing to be spectacular and I will NOT give a ten until absolutely perfect.” Craig responds as Len nods in agreement as the contest gets serious.

The votes are back in as we discover who else is joining week 10. Going through is Patrick and Anya and Abbey and Aljaz. The second couple dancing again is Ben and Kristina, leaving Sophie and Brendan to sail through to the next week.

“I think I’ve been on borrowed time” Ben adds after receiving some tips from Bruno for the danceoff.

The dance off

Mark and Iveta

Foxtrot

mark iveta 9 res

Still a little slow but now making full use of the floor in a good use of steps and sway.

Ben and Kristina

Charleston

Strictly Come Dancing

Ben’s muscles and weight flexing become the selling point again. Smiley Ben’s steps are rather kak-handed despite effort, has no rhythm.

The Judges Vote

judges 9 res

It’s a tense vote of equal tension.

Craig begins – Both made mistakes but I’d like to save Ben and Kristina.

Darcey – Couple I would like to save based on tonight’s performance is Mark and Iveta.

Bruno – Both endearing. Mistakes very obvious so I have to save Mark and Iveta.

Len – Did both go wrong, one small mistake, other two blatant. On this performance I have to save Mark and Iveta.

Been a great experience. Don’t get to dress like this everyday. Kristina’s been great.

Make me so proud. Had most rewarding time as Rihanoff wells up.

ben pants 9

Pants. Ben poses in white briefs for fans.

We’ve got nothing against Big Ben, but the media hypocrisy from the BBC with the levels of over-sexualisation branding people, especially the gay community, something he says he works in, as dirty and objectified as leering predators as his only selling point is not supportive to his cause. It leaves many to be ‘left out’ or misrepresented and the only gay community work Ben has done is posed for a calendar and be ‘gay friendly’ supporting equal rights. This is fine, but do not pledge you do so much when you do minimal and only strip off then say a couple of words. This is the unheard voices of the gay community to which we have strong links, as with many other community sources. His skills at dancing were often over-hyped and caused daft comments. If Ben ever wants a chat, our door is open. Of course, mainstream media will pounce in the only way they know how which adds nothing to your causes. Ben wants to participate in next year’s gay games. No doubt there will be a 2014 calendar, too. For now, that is all.

Strictly Come Dancing 2013, Week  9

bruce tess 9

Week 9 of the comeptition begins with the final looming nearer. Time to get stronger and better. No place for error without reprimand now.

Beginning the evening is,

Susanna and Kevin

Cha Cha

Hound Dog – Smokey Joe’s Cafe

susanna kevin 9

Susanna gave a good performance with leggy moments and a little sass, but is it enough for anyone to go out of their way to save her. It seems as though Reid is reaching her peak as she consistently enters a score of 7s -8s every week now from early stages of dazzling performance. Needs more gusto. Give a bit of oomph, style and swift sass. Decent but standard.

The Judges are back to give their comments with Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli with our professional score in brackets.

judges 9

Len – We’re getting down to the nitty gritty. Standard is high. Things overlooked in past, we’ll be picking up on. That’s what I’m looking for. Liked timing, mix of steps. Problem was leg action. Acceptable, gotta be much crisper.

Bruno – Your performances fly off the shelf like mince pies at Christmas. Wasn’t as pronounced as it could have been. Really get these hips going.

Craig – Really liked vampy beginning. Did not pop, sing, need to think about hyper extending your body. Little bit mumsy, darling.

Darcey – Just that technique. Difficult dance, just wasn’t yours tonight.

Wow SCD starting to be as professional as us? Shock. Susanna was decent but too safe.

7, 8, 8, 8 (7)

Ashley and Ola

Waltz

I will always love you

ashley ola 9

Ashley and No-la

Strong start with romance in sway. Bit too daft staring as moving into eyes by Ashley over animated. Neck and face too stiff and focus on westerly air point. Decent music kick in spin, with good spin of Ola. Feet placed well. Arm average on spin, bit higher, maybe. Ends romatically well.

Bruno – You glided through it with incredible poise. Elegant.

Craig – Coped well with cross braising. Expressions very good. Your head driving me abso mad. Inclining to the right. Got to sort that out.

Darcey – So slick. You glided effortlessly. Craig’s right, when you tense up on turn, you do little tilt. Just relax.

Len – Like your initials, Attention To Detail. I thought you did a terrific dance. Head things little thing you gotta work on a tad.

8, 9, 9, 9 (7)

Natalie and Artem

Tango

Where Have You Been – Rihanna

natalie artem 9

Good setting scene. Bit long getting into hold. Kept momentum of dance tension. Consistent attack in head turns. Keeping up with Artem well. Strong style and charisma. Sharp focus. Musicality could have been little better for contemporary Tango. Still very workable. Great leg through end.

Craig – Going to be really picky. Left hand facing up. Missed drama.

Darcey – Over exaggerate and push away further in top line. Only thing, would be perfection.

Len – You look like my favourite quality street. Lowered your head a little bit. Fabulous, well done.

Bruno – You set off like the Tango express. Fabulous!

9, 9, 9, 10 (9)

Mark and Iveta

Foxtrot

It’s a Beautiful Day – Michael Buble

mark iveta 9

Good elegant start and style. Bit timid on spot. Needs more movement. Slowly walking back and forth. Good dip of Iveta bit lacking punch. Good pirouette from Iveta. Graceful pink flamingo with Mark a joy, but just very tame.

Dracey – Charming. Top line has improved. Would have liked to see more flow and travel.

Len – You’ve been trained but never tamed. Cheeky moments I like. Like a Dalek. You moved but no swing. Always fun to watch.

Bruno – Rise and shine. Bringing sun on Strictly. Kind of stopped a little bit in hold. Jolly and pleasant.

Craig – Missing -flow, movement, swing, sway. Too much side by side.

6, 8, 7, 7 (6)

Sophie and Brendan

Rumba

Will You Love Me Tomorrow – Amy Winehouse

sophie brendan 9

Watch out, Brendan doing a Rumba. Now he wants romance? He’s famed for Raunchy Rumbas, and sneaky lifts…

Shiver wen touched by stalking Brendan from behind. Cringeworthy Brendan whisks into hold spin around with tame and slow steps forward. Sophie spins into Brendan on spot again. Again outward and back. Legs off ground on toe spin technically a lift despite effort. Sophe spins around side to side again and again and again. Plain, empty and weak.

Len – tircky dance. Lacked little bit of flair.

Bruno – Totally agree. So pretty. I like my Rumba a bit raunchier.

Brendan – People think Rumba is about sex… It’s about a beautiful story.

Craig – Did like double spin. Found it a bit cold. Odd moments when you smile come away. In and Out.

Brendan moans as Sophie accepts critque.

Darcey – Missed sensuality. Looked a little shy.

Brendan moans again. I don’t want filthy, dirty Rumba’s master politician of Strictly Brendan adds. The man famed for making it raunchy to begin with.

7, 8, 8, 8 (6)

It was lacking with judges and yet overmarking succeeds.

It was a proper performance and that was a Rumba performance! Brendan do us all a favour and shut yer trap! Accept critique when it doesn’t work. Only reason you stay is because of your gracious celeb partners.

It’s “Big Ben time” Brucie utters once more. Ben is dressed in braces and already flexed his muscles at the start of the show for the gay and girls vote. Will the shame ever end?

Ben and Kristina

Charleston

No Diggity – Blackstreet

ben kristina 9

Flexing muscles, Ben lifts weights as Kristina hops along and Ben robotically moves his arms with one step across to her. Lifts her weirdly. Horrid feet problems in steps. Lacking huge momentum and dull as dishwater. Almost drops Kristina on lift. Pushes Kristina along on splits floor after standing on spot. Moves muscles a bit more. Ends trampled on by Rihanoff.

The strongest man on earth! Has to be extremely sharp and tight. Could be little bit sharper. Guy of your size is wonderful what you do.

Craig – Wasn’t most electrifying. My heart bleeds for you darling. Lack any freedom of movement. This is what its about, quirkiness.

Darcey – Looked careful on you. Attack into those lifts was brilliant.

Len – Right on time. Swivel and lifts great. Needed bit more zuzz going on.

Tess – Come on Ben, show us your guns!

(Poster boy Ben flexes as the caricature he is.)

6, 7, 7, 7 (5)

 

 

Abbey and Aljaz

Paso Doble

You Got The Love – Florence and The Machine

abbey aljaz 9

Good start with Aljaz mirrored behind. Commanding role from Aljaz as Abbey supports well. Good dip down in corner. Strong, fast arm through followed by up point spin sharply. Circling Aljaz teasing with skirt waft. Good arm/elbow fight. Great contemporary Paso where sound of pin could be heard. Engaging, commanding but little stagnate in parts.

Craig – Thought your free arm was little loose. Little bit cutsey, loved the dance.

Darcey – Very difficult Paso. Would’ve liked stronger woman. Nice shapes. Wanted to see something different. More dramatic.

Len – On occasion you just lost a bit of control. Enjoyed dance., would like to see a little bit cleaner.

Bruno – Some things you did for a non dancer, really working incredibly hard. Cos of a few slips you put yourself down.

8, 8, 8, 8 (8)

 

Patrick and Anya

Viennese Waltz

A New Day Has Come – Celine Dion

patrick anya 9

Windswept Anya quickly caught by Patrick in flurry of smooth, slow and tender spins. Very good connection. Leading Anya incredibly well. Great extend and pull into hold of Garnis by Patrick. Tidy feet. Stylistic poise in spin and dips of Anya. Taking strong attention to keeping feet on ground when pulled by Patrick. First class.

Darcey – I expect so much now. Pull it out next time please.

Len – Good movement, bad standing spins. Didn’t like ending thing. Ugly. Rushed. Not best but not worst.

Bruno – Shaming at end you crash landed. Such a shame. Messed up whole effect. wasn’t in dream anymore.

Craig – Never disappoint rhythmically. Unfortunately feet came off the floor and that became a lift, sadly.

Feet didn’t come off the floor as Anya is confused of. Ola and Iveta agree she had feet grounded.

Strictly Come Dancing 2013, Week 8 Results: Blackpool

tess claudia 8

Tonight’s glitzy results come live from the Blackpool Tower. The first couple making it through is – Susanna and Kevin. Also joining the show next week is – Abbey and Aljaz, Ashley and Ola. The first to grace the danceoff is – Mark and Iveta.

Andre Rieu

Music of the night

andre rieu 8

Added with a tender routine with Anton and Iveta, Andreu Rieu gave yet another stunning performance without one note improper with his own orchestra. Flawless once again.

Len’s Lens

More round up came from the protruding lens. Nothing of interest was seen.

 

The rest of the results are revealed now by Tess. Making it through in the second batch of results is – Patrick and Anya, Sophie and Brendan and Natalie and Artem. The couple joining the bottom two for the danceoff is Fiona and Anton leaving Ben and Kristina homefree to next week.

 

JLS

Billion Lights

jls 8

The fourpiece boyband gave an extremely shouty and awkward song added with Marvin’s awful miming on offer. It was off key, had weird staging and was trying so desperately to have an electric sound which should not have been attempted. The R’n’B pop band should not do something they can’t handle. They are then overexposed as now. It didn’t work. Oh. And that Marvin is presenting Series three of The Voice UK soon. Now it become all so clear why they were there.

The dance off

Mark and Iveta dance off against Fiona and Anton. Both performances were once again the same as their performance earlier, however both looked more at ease this time round.

The vote has put both couples on equal par. It’s a tough call as to who should go. Fun with Mark or give Fiona another chance.  All in all, we would choose Fiona, ultimately to stay but its tight. To improve she needs to really go for it without too much seriousness in step approval.

The Judges Vote

judges 8

The judges now vote. In the event of a tie head judge Len, as always, will have the casting vote.

Craig – Couple I would like to save, Fiona and Anton.

Darcey – Like to save is Mark and Iveta.

Bruno – Couple like to save is Mark and Iveta.

Len – (Now has the deciding vote) – Very close thing. Gave them both 8’s. Danceoff you up your game or nerves. For that reason I’m going to save Mark and Iveta.

Bond Girl and Author Fiona Fullerton flutters away from the show. Fiona said of her parting ways the show was “like being a guest at the best party in the world.” She tanked Anton for being “unbeleivably patient.”

Anton gave praise to his golden-eye. “This show is made fun by the people we get to dance with. Lovely.”

Fullerton left with a grateful and cheerful end to the Strictly experience.

Strictly Come Dancing, Week 8: Blackpool

Strictly Come Dancing, Week 8, Blackpool

bruce tess 8

This week is the extravaganza build up that is Blackpool. Last year was Wembley, this year it’s back ‘upt north.’

Opening the floor with a loud pink and blue sass fest were the professionals and some young ballroom dancers to lift the mood of Strictly fun fest for its eighth week. With so much on the line who will raise their game and be booted off the tower? Get ready to catch the donkey ride home.

The BBC decided to spend much more of the taxpayers money on the celebrities being wheeled in on a platform and Sophie Ellis Bextor (among the other females) in a putrid green peacock costume. Was it really worth that much?

Out stroll our glam hosts Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly to get the ball(room) rolling.

First up this week is…

Sophie and Brendan

Quickstep

The Lady Is A Tramp – Shirley Bassey

sophie brendan 8

The first thing we see is Sophie’s mum (again) wheeled out by the BBC for some tips on how to dance. Thanks for that unimportant tidbit.

Sophe begins stepping down the table to join Brendan in hold. Good start on the floor, carried by Brendan somewhat still. Little off time in middle of song. Stops slow for a moment in routine costing time. Runs around out of hold from Brendan only into arms of three human male props. Having multiple dancers to hide flaws is no level of success.

The judges Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussel, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli give their comments and scores, along with our professional mark in brackets.

Len – Full of intent. Hair wafting out. absolutely spot on.

Bruno – This lady definitely is not a tramp. You’re a tease. Full of character. Really, really nice. Check the top line.

Craig – I really loved the story. However, your top line thought you lost. Bit loose, jaggered. Storytelling absolutely phenomenal.

Darcey – You came alive. It was so beautiful.

7, 9, 9, 9 (6)

Brucie explains about the Shakespearian tragedy MacBeth. Funny, we send a Macbethian tweet of dialogue out two weeks ago. BBC are so clever aren’t they? As well as contradictory with their systematic levels of abuse. Anything spring to mind now then, now then?

Patrick and Anya

Samba

Copa Cabana – Barry Manilow

patrick anya 8

Helped by two feather babes. Joins Anya quickly into strong hold. Shame of awkward malfunction slightly in hold from Garnis clothing with Patrick. Recovers quickly from Patrick. Leading well with Anya into spin around arm groove. Good rhythm. Strong presence on own as well as with Anya. Great show but a tad awks.

Dave Arch and his fabulous Orchestra were introduced for providing the excellent evening’s live sound.

Bruno – A blistering hot Samba. Captured the flavour so well. Variety of steps. Rhythm. Close to perfection except mess up and tiny incident. Stop me to give it the perfect score. One of the best male Samba dancers we ever had.

Craig – Think you are one of the best, just unfortunate it went horribly wrong. That could have been dazz-a-ling, darling.

Darcey – Extraordinary difficult dance. No gimmicks. Tiny, tiny fault. It was superb, well done.

Len – That’s not a Samba, it’s a Wamba! You just messed up one step. It was fantastic. You are a terrific dancer. Believe me.

8, 9, 9, 9 (8)

Tess – Go Coconuts!

It’s Big Ben time, Brucie informs. Smiley Ben is shown. Should he dance with his shirt off? Any ladies here? Bruce continues to pander the audience who predicatble reply with a slut fest with tongues hanging out letching. How sad of a common denominator are you?

Ben and Kristina

American Smooth

Fallin’ – Alicia Keys

ben kristina 8

Ben’s preparation involved a game of Buckeroo and Twister. Saddle up, then.

Kristina was thrown forward by three males as Ben dances on spot to side movement only. One move Ben catches Kristina after the three other dancers lift her onto him. Ben carried by Kristina into arm flip around. Rihanoff runs into lift as Ben only stands and hoists up. Weak, lackluster and empty. As well as cheating with dancers there was no skill on offer here though Ben did however tick a couple of feet boxes in right place.

Craig – Big Ben is back. Very quick Viennese. Would’ve licked bit more out of hold. Vast improvement.

Darcey- Air and flow. What a tentative partner you are. Think about what your gonna do. Brilliant.

Len – Honestly, last week, I thought your Jive was fabulous.  When you’re out of hold gets bit too wimpy.

Bruno – Aw, Ben. Had such warmth. Most difficult part was a Viennese Waltz, which you did very well. Well done.

Of course, this week was the sympathy vote in the national press after Ben did the rounds stating he would dedicate this week to his late father and to ‘get the gays’ talking about wearing only his pants. Again. We don’t do any bull here. We are not here to tell biased accounts on sympathy. Everyone has a hard life. Cut the crap. Be a professional. If you impress on skill and merit, you will get the credit. But most media apart from us is too scared to be honest and professional, isn’t it?

8, 8,8, 8 (3)

Ashley and Ola

Paso Doble

You Give Love A Bad Name – Bon Jovi

ashley ola 8

Slow in hold standing there only behind Ola. Focus on Ola skirt wafting only. No prominence. Slow legs crossover looking empty. Stamp of feet up on floor a lift. Naughty naughty. Another foot lift afterwards. Empty and nothing eventful whatsoever. Cowboy with open shirt will secure votes. Contemporary calamity with Paso Bore-ble.

Darcey – Had strong lines. Just would have loved a little bit more drama.

Len – I thought you got stronger and stronger. Speed and the stillness. Whip it and wait.

Bruno – Lone ranger is back with a vengeance. Plenty of thrust. Never lost the focus. I disagree with them. Thought you were on it. Could not take my eyes off you.

Craig – Cowboy defending himself with a cape doesn’t really do it for me. Idea bit bizarre, am into bizarre and extraordinary, and that was extraordinary.

8, 9, 9, 9, (4)

Looks like Len has forgotten the cheeky lifts observation from two weeks ago. Say something nice on Blackpool week, aye?

Fiona and Anton

American Smooth

Come Fly With Me – Frank Sinatra

fiona anton 8

After charismatic Anton stops shmoozing other female dancers, lifts Fiona into soft glide lift decently. Arms bit wayward. Kicks good. Clean lift flying skirt around by steps. Good partner work. Held own in end lift too, despite minor awkwardness. Fair, hard effort and elegant.

Len – Lifts, little bit economy. Had an air of style and class about it.

Bruno – VIP lounge! Elegant, very proper, dainty. When you change direction, you go ‘Ooh where’s my handbag?’ Anton is there. I thought you looked really good.

Craig – Liked to have seen bit smoother throughout. Last pivots, getting into last lift utter disaster as we all managed to witness. First class element – the soft shoe in the middle. Gorgeous.

Darcey – Lovely little details. Create nice lines. Only a couple of those things. Looks a little bit unfinished.

6, 7, 8, 8 (6)

Abbey and Aljaz

Quickstep

Walking On Sunshine – Katrina and the Waves

abbey aljaz 8

In hold feet sweet. Good turns and in hold head pivots with arms. Kept up with run along trot strongly. Good hops on spot let down a tad with leg extension bit low. Recovered with strong symmetry legs bicycle kicking with Aljaz. Ends well on deck chairs.

Bruno – Champagne for Abbey! Unbelievable

Craig – Lot of gaping throughout. Frame loose throughout. Let it go completely. In Charleston sections dancing with both arms. These are minor details, I absolutely loved it.

Darcey – It was beautiful. You travelled with control.

Len – If you were a stick of Blackpool rock, you’d have talent in the middle. Speed, clarity of movement. That was good.

7, 10, 10, 10 (8)

This, of course is the week, in which Strictly votes its performers up to keep them in the contest for its preferred final from executives behind the scenes. Which, also costs them public votes in response. People are not that thick. It will also hurt Abbey as a dancer when further along.

Mark and Iveta

Jive

You Can’t Stop the Beat  – Hairspray

mark iveta 8

Fast bouncy number gets mood going. Mark in hold with Iveta well for start. Hands and character keeping stead well. Fun shimmy’s along with style. Bit stalling though. Gets crowd clapping along well. Good walk around with Iveta. Spins of Iveta toward Mark good but not fully done by Benton.

Craig – little bit flat footed and stompy. Looked like you had flippers on end of your legs. Really looking for bit more technique. Loved Hairspray sector. Brilliant.

Darcey – Show stopping performance. Tried really hard. So much content.

Len – It was fun. Joy in performance. Big. Brash. Noisy and fabulous to watch.

Bruno – What you gave us is a fantastic ride. Feel good factor through the roof. Kicks and flicks could’ve been sharper.

5, 8, 8, 8 (7)

Susanna and Kevin

Paso Doble

Los Toreadors – From musical Carmen

susanna kevin 8

Foot stomping of matador Kevin slowly guides bullish Susanna to the floor into hold as the action begins. Strong start with spins and character. Bit timid in middle side to side with Kevin. Wafts skirt bit too much. Ends strong on arm swift interlocks before covered by huge red cape. Very strong skill but lacking a tough fire to get top marks.

Darcey – I loved it. You ate up the dance floor. The drama, the dynamics.

Len – Full of tasty morsels all the way through.

Bruno – Isssss Car-men! It was just… FAN-TAS-TIC!

Craig – Absolutely Fab-u-lous!

9, 10, 10, 10 (8)

BBC anchor Susanna said “I’m not a ten person.” You are in Blackpool, dear.

Natalie and Artem

Charleston

Bang Bang – will.i.am

natalie artem 8

Natalie’s blackouts were explained after last week’s dramatic turn of events saw Natalie gain a bye for the week.

Gaining secret access, Artem struts up to podium sweetie Natalie. Working the funky footwork on the floor together with strong kick around head legs of Artem from Nat. Into hold well, but little stalling. Clearly week has affected confidence a little. Roll through from over shoulder of Artem very clean and tidy with consistent end.

Len – Spectacular.

Bruno – Your party could go on forever.

Craig – Loved modern twist. sen-sa-tion-al.

Darcey – Always beautiful details. Added something new, character and personality. Joy to watch.

9, 10, 10, 10

Ever predictable considering the over-marking but if this is the theme for a Blackpool/Wembley arena show, then what is the point? Keep it simple or just don’t bother as it dips into how your seen by others as a good show or not.

Who could face the bottom of the pack this week?

Dear Deandre #7

He hoards ex’s sexy gear

I knew my boyfriend was a hoarder but I was shocked to discover a wardrobe full of sexy outfits worn by his ex-girlfriend. I’m 36 and my boyfriend is 39. We’ve been together two years. When I helped him move his things from one room to another while we were decorating I came across a wardrobe full of sexy outfits worn by his ex. They were together for 15 years. He admits she left him; otherwise he’d still be with her. I feel insecure about him keeping this stuff. What can I do?

sexy-women-halloween-costumes-4

Your problems here are mostly to do with your own low self-esteem in terms of these outfits. It seems you feel thrown by such outfits because they aren’t something you would be prepared to wear giving a choice on your own influence. Added with the long relationship and fact his ex-wore these has made you feel inadequate. Drop subtle questions in your relationship to find out answers to questions you have in the relationship unrelated to the clothes initially. Ask about instances that you want from the pair of you ad decide if this is a relationship you see a future with. Is it because he may ask you to wear them or the fact you can never compare for not wearing them? Communication about your partnership will strengthen your answers of what you really want from this relationship.

Thug who bullied me for being gay has boyfriend

I was surprised a guy who bullied me at school for being gay sent a friend request to me on Facebook. I am a 25 year old gay man and I accepted his request. I was amazed to see he has a boyfriend now. He says he is enjoying his life. I find it incredible that someone who treated me so poorly for years for liking guys has found he is into the same thing, whereas I’ve never felt able to come out and haven’t had a partner.

gay couple

Many young children at school who bully people as part of a crowd culture to be popular are often in some respects gay and struggling to deal with their sexuality. Seeing the levels of abuse to you by others, he doesn’t wish for them to turn on him instead. Now, he clearly feels bad about treating you this way and hopes to make it up by being friends. But in your mind, it is disgraceful to treat someone such a way and then simply act as nothing happened. The feeling he put you down so much to send you into a segregated way of being missing out on relationships and communication due to abuse makes you resent him. If you want to be fuller friends then try looking past the old days of school ways. If you feel you can’t then that is not surprising and cut all ties of communication to focus your life your way. Try to look for your own future and meeting others socially or try to make friends in the communities around you on or offline.

Awkward trouser rockets ruining sex life

I get embarrassing erections at the wrong times and none when I want one. I’m 24. I used Viagra every night on holiday, last summer. Now the slightest thing can set it off but in bed I can’t rise to the occasion. My girlfriend thinks I don’t fancy her and accuses me of cheating.

awkward_boner

Explain to her why you felt the need to and that you did use Viagra. Sometimes a man can get awkward erections of the slightest random time and doesn’t mean you’re attracted to anything around you but testosterone and setting can react in certain cases. Obviously, Viagra has not helped the situation with your levels of mass consumption. Try to reduce the intake if you are still reliant and if it continues you may need to see a GP. Talk to your girlfriend and try to encourage foreplay, scenarios and certain things that often get you aroused sexually.

Kinky request frightens me

I’ve met a wonderful man and we’re planning to get engaged -however, he asked me to have sex with someone else. I’m a widow of 39 and he’s a 47 year old widow. He’s kind, caring and generous and we are very much in love and committed to a long term relationship. H asked me to have sex with another man so I could “learn new things.” Last night he said he’d found the right man, then suddenly broke down and cried. He kept saying sorry and hated himself. Now he’s asked me to forget all about it but I’m not sure I can.

another man

Losing someone so close to him has made him, alongside his age; consider looking for more in his life and sexual experiences. He may be assuming you may be inclined to do so because of bearing similarities in circumstance. If you are uncomfortable then you should not do what you do not wish to. Speak to him and say why you do not wish to or may consider. Perhaps you want to know why he is intrigued by this. It seems he wants to freshen your relationships and some men enjoy seeing a young stud (or older) enjoying his female friend, done in a fairly caring manner, in his mind.  This may be a way to try and move on from being alone and a mechanism to deal with his grief of losing his partner. Offer him support and see if you can help him through his grief. If not, then try to suggest referring other options to him who can.

Misses did the business with stranger after work

My wife had a one night stand at our annual works conference. I could maybe forgive and forget if she had been drunk but I know that she was sober. I’m 39 and she’s 36. We’ve worked for the same trade association for years and the annual conference is a big event on our calendar. Now we have kids, we take it in turns to stay overnight while the other drives home to relive the babysitter. Last month, when the conference was done, it was down to the bar for all the delegates. As I was leaving I saw my wife being chatted up by an impossibly good looking and charming young man at least ten years younger than her. She told me the guy had spent the night with her in her hotel room. She doesn’t drink. She said it was lust and the thrill of doing something wrong. Our sex life has always been good but she said this guy was brilliant in bed. She wants to move on and not make a big deal about a one night stand but it isn’t as easy as that.

signs-of-cheating-husband

Would being drunk be any better? This does not justify infidelity. The thrill may be there to misbehave but this is an excuse for the fact she wanted to cheat because she enjoyed some attention from an outside influence and chose not to stop it at simply flirting. She has taken you and the comfortability of routine for granted. It seems her “brilliant in bed” comment is to keep you hanging on after forgiveness and clearly the sex wasn’t great but different from what you two have in a routine with children. You may need to find more time with each other, despite work and child commitments as this can cause your relationship to suffer, even though you have sex, this is routine and hence, her problem for him being “better.” He challenged your routine. Many people want to break a cycle of the rut they are drifted into by society today. Tell her how she made you feel and your trust issues are shaken and talk about where to go from this next.

Why do I go for a gay guy?

I’m a girl of 19 and, since I broke up with my only boyfriend two years ago, I’ve only felt attracted to gay men. I split from my boyfriend because I realised I didn’t love him but I haven’t felt drawn to a straight man since – just gay guys.

unrequited-love

The comfortability, free talking and sharing of mutual respect is what you are infatuated with here. The ability to laugh, be free and enjoy strong caring company built on compassion draws you to them that you fully lack from straight men. You are worried about relationships, however, at 19, it is somewhat strange you feel this way at a time of growing up. This is a phase which you will grow out from but it seems you are purposely throwing all your attentions into trying to turn a gay man into your lover. Nothing good can come from this except more hurt on your part to yourself because he won’t reciprocate afterward. Your feeling this way because you feel there is no one out there for you, but you haven’t looked hard enough and are extremely young. Don’t try to see it as a challenge to get a gay man and try to focus on living daily life with other interests like music or a hobby. Because you are looking for a guy for attention that a gay man gives you, you are questioning why you cannot get this from straight men. You have a long life to live. Enjoy your time as you are and you will eventually meet someone for you.

Help! I’m too big for her

I’m so big in the trouser department that it’s preventing me having sex with my girlfriend. I have been with my girlfriend for two months. She’s is 29 and I’m 32. She’s told me that she’s had some problems with painful sex before. I knew I was big but it was impossible when I tried to have sex with her. We’d had lots of foreplay but even so it was still hopeless. I’m worried that, without a healthy sex life, our relationship is doomed.

penis-enlargement-creams

For females the sight of a large penis is often a fantasy and a thrill, but then realising the pain attached with it when trying to please is actually a different story. Sometimes the most sensual parts of the body, including genitalia, can freeze, close or naturally react to pressure in an oppressive manner. Make sure you use more than usual with lubrication. Try to relax your girlfriend as much as possible and being anxious can also have a mental effect. She may be willing to do so but her body says another. Try different positions that are adequate for easier practice to have intercourse. As you say, continue with foreplay and make the practice seem natural than waiting for the big moment, pardon the pun. Take time and maintain intimacy with the pair of you showing you care about her during the process to help relax the body.

Girlfriend dumped me for Mr. Potato Head ex

I am a male model yet my girlfriend cheated on me with an ex who looks like a potato. I’m 29, she’s 24. He cheated on her before we met and got two other women pregnant. I treated her like a princess, our sex-life was brilliant and we had a real laugh together. She’s added her ex as a friend on Facebook and removed me. This guy is a loser – and ugly.

Hot Potato

Hot Potato

She may have felt that it wasn’t going to get any better in levels of maturity with you and decided to revert to old ways, as we often do, because your attitude to people is somewhat disparaging. It seems you have a strong lack of respect and communication for others in a vain context, which women often pick up on. This can often draw them to someone else. Her ex was an available option with a clear history, regardless how bad it may be.  You seem to be too full of your own behaviour as excusive and yet while you aren’t doing what this ex is there are strong similarities in character where you resemble the levels of abuse towards others, only with your judgments instead of action as her ex does. You should try to focus yourself on being a better person and not judge others too quickly because you look good on a poster. This is your downfall and has led to her leaving you.

I bedded 3 men in a month at Uni

I started University as a virgin last month but I’ve had sex with three different guys already. I’m a 19 year old girl. I did have a boyfriend when I was living with parents but they are very strict and religious. They frown on sex before marriage. I went to the student bar on my first night and got very drunk. I ended up going back to one guy’s room and having sex with him. He would come into my room later at night. We had actually started having sex when I realised it was another guy I didn’t know. All the guys thought it was very funny later. I’m now seeing a mature student of 30. He said we should have lots of sex. I’ve gone from not having sex to doing it just for fun and I’m totally confused.

threesome-save-animals

Your religious lifestyle has confined you to taking a backward approach to sex. Because you have been told no with no understanding and education or knowledge, you have had to find your own way. Your own navigation has cost you your virginity because of this way of isolation. You probably should have waited for a more loving encounter with a guy, but you cannot take this back now. Try to live daily without thinking about sex and boys as your main focus for activity in Uni life but if someone comes along that you like you can involve yourself appropriately. Make sure you use a condom and be a little more careful who you chose to sleep with so willfully. Wrapped up in cotton wool. One thing is clear. You are enjoying the carefree sex and are using such language to blame the men as taking advantage of you however you are as much enjoying this as them and must start being honest with yourself rather than blaming others. You are also getting a reputation around the campus as the local free for all. Only you can be responsible for the sex you give away. Being in a relationship so soon with a thirty year old and to “gain more experience” is disgusting as he is using you. Stop dating him as he is taking advantage of you, here.

Strictly Come Dancing 2013, Week 7 Results

Strictly Come Dancing, Week 7 Results

dave 7 res

This week was spoiled by the BBC and its shoddy iPlayer, so in true fashionable homage to them…

Dave Myers left Strictly.

iPlayer cock up, day 2

The imbeciles at BBC HQ ruined the Strictly experience from a number of viewers providing a huge backlash to the content online. The iPlayer show has yet to be uploaded at 22.53pm. Fans believe the BBC is purposely holding them to ransom with lazy politics of stewing over.

The idiot in control of BBC’s online content decides once again to tell you the ending on the page once again as it front page headline which really pisses fans off. Then the BBC have the cheek to ask how to improve the site and then fail to listen. Sacking ‘Strictly Nora’ seems like a good start.

chris-patten

Fans are dissatisfied with the BBC backward approach and have lost touch with the Strictly experience wherenumbers say they may leave the show just like X Factor before them. If the BBC are to ever turn a corner it needs to stop being so stubborn, biased and spoil dropping every single time. But, that’s a Tory for you. Lord Patton has an infamous reputation since sweeping the Jimmy Savile sex and child abuse paedophilia scandal under the carpet for decades since the 1970s with a ‘groupie gets abused’ culture in dressing rooms. Incompetent Lord Patten had been called to MPs over the BBC scandal over the past two years involving millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money being spent on payoff’s for incompetent directors.

Strictly Come Dancing 2013, Week 7

SCD Week 7

tess claudia 7

Next week is the prestine glamour that is the Blackpool arena. All couples are so desperate to reach the heights of the sparkly tower, week seven now begins, tougher than ever.

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman host the week with the most at stake outside of the glitterball trophy.

Natlie Gumede was taken ill and wont dance on the show this evening. See the positive. It gives someone an opportunity to cacth up with the public.

Ben and Kristina

Jive

Jump Jive an’ Wail – Burn the Floor Orchestra

ben kristina 7

This week Ben is decisding to tick the ‘get the gays’ box again by dressing as a stereotypical sailor, which doesn’t contradict his bullying foundation one iota does it? Gay men do not like being stereotyped as one way and this is feeding back into that and labelling them as dirty gays which the community links we have to are not impressed with.

Smiley and wavey Ben on steps. Kristina lone dances. Ben then trampolines onto the floor. Feet very spaky side to side peddling. arms awful in air wafting about aimlessly. Out of ync pin with partner off somewhere else. Pair do a lift with jump at same time. Slow legs back and forth like a wheel cycle. Awkward leg over Krstina’s face showing thigh into her face. Ben chases her to ruffle her dress. Kristina shoves Ben back onto floor which is a second lift to fall down on his back. There was no pace, two lifts, weak movement, steps too rigid and sleeze appeal for women and gays. It was shambolic. It wasn’t a Jive, what-so-ever.

Len – You need to work on your feet.

Bruno – Had irresisable urge to join the navy. Bit wobbly at the bottom. Jive is alll about sharpness. Stay on your toes and sharp on feet. Otherwise, as always, very impressive.

Tess – Do you agree?

Craig – No I dont as a matter of fact. I thought best part of it was the back somersault. Too leden, too laboured as expected.

Ever predicatable Len interrupts – Thats your trouble you exepected thatand so in your mind you were gonna get it.

Craig – That is so untrue. Obvioulsy I know your carrying heavy muscles there.

Infatuated Bruno adds – Nothing wrong with that.

Craig continues – Difficult to keep up pace. Despite your best seamen efforts that is, a, failure.

Hormonal Darcey screams – I disgaree! I disagree! I disagree. (Claps ring from the audience in a glorified pantomime of the dancing show based on fancy votes and lack of skill.)

Comedy frowning sympathy vote Ben hugs gay Bruno.

Darcey finishes off – You proved us wrong. Great attack, great energy. I enjoyed it.

Kristina – OMG he’s gonna put us down…

4, 7, 8, 7 (3)

Fiona and Anton

Paso Doble

Song 2 – Blur

fiona anton 7

Fiona working cape around waist strongly. Good arm around extentions. Keeping up well with Anton and holding her own in routine. Keeping stance and charcter well throughout. Great spin around on end with Anton for glamour girl Fiona.

The greatness of the Dave Arch Orchestra was recognised.

Bruno – I like your dark side. When you go spunky and dark and aggressive. Crnky with the skirt. Timing was actually better than his. You ket it going when something went wrong. Well done.

Craig – Thoughtyou had a good use of skirt darling. Timing precise. However do lose your neck. Pull shoulders back. Little bit indifferent. Little bit vanilla. Adequate but have to say, forgetable.

Biased Tess leaps into the comments – Darcey tell ‘im ‘es’s wrong!

Darcey – Very nice shapes of the arms. Like to see it come from the back.

Len – Element of Falmenco in there. I thought you could have given it a bit more of a firs. Bit more wow. Would have liked you to have stepped up a notch. Well done.

5, 7, 7, 7 (6)

Abbey and Aljaz

Charleston

Cabaret – Liza Minelli

abbey aljaz 7

After the BBC have failed to invite me out of my room to the live studio (your problem, not mine) Abbey and Aljaz had strong presence but step and arms were a little flighty and sweet lacking sharp attack. Good spin around lift onto Aljaz. Good sass but run of the mill. Very ordinary and though she may be saved this wee from dance off depths, has affected her with a timid entry. Abbey gave a good performance and while we think she’ll get the votes this week, it wasn’t mesmerising and could be in the bottom two soon next week if her game isn’t raised with more going for it style than a laid back approach in the routine. That’s advice.

Craig – Stylisation. Enourmous attention to detail incredible. Did not Charleston quietly. Loud. It was proud.

Darcey – To have a hat and do all those things with it. That monkey step at the end, great. Well done Aljaz, you have made a true dancer out of Abbey.

Len – That is AA. That isnt a breakdown at all. Saty in that car, get up the M1, I’ll see you next week in Blackpool.

Bruno – Abey the it girl. Had a bossy influence. Very unsual and very exciting.

9, 9, 9, 9 (8)

Mark and Iveta

Rumba

Goldfinger

mark iveta 7

Blofeld. Iveta seduces the dark and cold chair swirling villian Benton. Good arms and effort but still ‘on the spot’ dancing. Very slow and not playing strenght to dark music. Waits for Iveta to fall into arms. Very empty and throw away, which is a shame for effort given.

Darcey – Mmm, well. Rumba is a dance of love. If only you have drove the floor as you did your wifes pussycat… Bit too bitty for me. Always create an interesting story.

Len – Got gold in your fingers bit of lead in your bum. Rumba is a very diffciult dance for men. Get balance right is tricky business.

Bruno – You tried goldfisnger, look like a fish finger darling. Characterisation spot on. Movement didn’t flow.

Craig – My point is your arms. Hands need shaping. Beautiful arms acheived gorgeously, but hand like spatulas. Concept that actually saved this dance.

Claudia looking like a condom cum femidom now.

claude femidom 7

5, 6, 7, 5 (5)

Susanna and Kevin

Waltz

You Light Up My Life – Whitney Houston

susanna kevin 7

While getting into back to front hold with Kevin behind Susanna leading into twirl around floor gracefully. Smooth but minimal pace. Good and strong rotations. Tidy footwork. Good pull tiptoe glide into lovely spin round end. However was a little empty in parts.

Len – You lit up this ballroom. Fabulous.

Bruno – Timeless. It was beautiful.

Craig – I could not agree more. Brought that frock to life. Hesitation moments beautifully held. I loved it.

Darcey – The boys totally right. So many turns, beautifully done. Love you to strecth a little firther the length in your legs.

9, 9, 9, 9 (8)

Dave and Karen

Tango

I’m Gonna be – The Proclaimers

dave karen 7

Slow and uneventful star and hold in what should have been a sharp thrust together at start. Turns not sharp or interesting. Like watching a puppet moving. Slow tiny one pace steps are unforgivable disaster. Standing there as Karen jiggles shoulders. Given Strictly Myles flag to hold up. Pathetic.

Bruno – Oh Dave. It wasn’t any Tango at all. Stomping around like beast of burden. No passion. It was walked. You look like a crab.

Craig – Little rough around the edges, lets say. Very stompy.

Darcey – So much more dance content than any other dance you’ve done.

FF – (You sure about that?)

Len – Needed a bit more Irn-Bru.

4, 6, 6, 4 (1)

Natalie and Artem

Jive

Proud Mary – Ike and Tina Turner

Bye. Gumede granted week off due to illness in training.

Bye. Gumede granted week off due to illness in training.

Artem spoke to Claudia after the explaination of the bye for Natalie after she had collapsed in training. The rules were clarified considering her health. As above, it gives everyone else a chance to up their game in the contest. We wish Natalie well as did Tess and the Strictly team and professionals.

Ashley and Ola

Quickstep

Are You Gonna Be My Girl? – Jet

ashley ola 7

Strong arms into routine on point. Into hold for contemporary hop along movement held well. Good twirl out of Ola in hold followed with consitent movement around floor. Feet bit careful. Bit timid clicking heels together after. Strong speed towards end jump up on Judges table, collapsing on their slab.

Darcey – Origins come from Jazz era of 1920s. Consistent all the way through. improvement int he angle of your head and top line.

Len – Kept your energy up throughout the dance. Taylor Made.

Bruno – A bit of spit and polish and the sparks are flying. Contorol all over. Your frame was better, Footwork and Timing better.

Craig – Frame and posture is fixing, now have to fix all the gapping. Fantastic energy. Occasionaly took your footwork into your upper body. I thought it was amazing.

8, 9, 9, 9 (9)

Sophie and Brendan

Argentine Tango

Sweet Dreams – Tanghetto

sophie brendan 7

Strong begin. Timid follow through. One leg movement on gauucho. Walking around with Brendan. Intimate stare. Brendan’s favourite lift spins around Bextor. Flatline afterward. Sits down on chair picked by Brendan. Ends on minor hold down. Nothing over than legs, pout and walking. All hype, barely no action. And before Snotty Grotty Brendan moans and fails to listen, we are impartial, not biased. Look, we even have all of Sophie Ellis Bextor’s albums. So stick yer moany beak elsewhere. Thanks.

photo

Len – Loved the story of it. Great lifts.

Bruno – Relase the fire. Needs more tregth and variety.

Craig – Few unstable moments.

Brendan again cuts in and mocks critique for no jusitfiable reason other than childishness.

CRH – Holding yourself so solid, thought you were gonna fall over.

Darcey – Magic position, beautiful lines.

8, 8, 8, 8 (6)

Patrick and Anya

American Smooth

It Had to Be You – Harry Connick Junior

patrick anya 7

Good working around floor but no engagement to influence people again. Needs to capture people fromt he off. Great lift and style with partner. Excellent charisma. Powerful up shoulders lift swirl around down of Anya. Ends strongly. Hwoever, missing key element to grab pepole’s instant attention for votes.

Bruno – So hard to do back in then out.

Craig – Exquisite, exciting. You are the best male celeberity in this comeptition.

Darcey – You ooze style. Perfection. Showed no weeknesses.

Len – As Henry VIII would say, take him to the tower.

(Someone read our mind earlier in the week, then :o)

iPlayer Abuse yet again

Disgruntled fans of the show were miffed as the BBC specifically chose to make the decision not to put the iPlayer show up yet and keep people waiting to mess about with media reports on purpose. The BBC are playing a dangerous game with public opinon. The website has uploaded all the details, backstage gossip and important things to itself even showing the next broadcasts of the show but no Week 7 broadcast. Fans are fed up with the abuse from the BBC website, where clips are uploaded, even now. Many have hit out at the failings of the horrid and ghastly looking website which fails with mismangement. No-one cares either for the ‘backstage’ coverage on the website, which the BBC can never manage correctly. They are too stubborn to listen to advice or people who can make it successful. That’s the abusive bigotry on offer at the Beeb.

The BBC continues to remain backward in failing to give the public, who fund the BBC through taxes from the licence fee, their fundamental right to view content the player is designed for. This is a constant malpractice by the Beeb. iPlayer is a worldwide service.

The BBC are still reeling from failing to handle the Jimmy Savile child abuse case where the pedophile hero of the BBC in the past still dominates the covered up failings by the organisation to deal with a crisis nor give the public what they are paying for.

21.51pm – At this time I send the tweet out explaining its failure to the public. “#BBC #Iplayer is yet another cock up. They are losing huge support from everyone over the abuses to not upload #SCD

21.58pm – BBC upload the content of the week 7 show now.

It always amazes me that just AFTER I tweet, the show is then uploaded.  You can thank me later. And dont ever question my authority again. I have pull.

Danger zone

Who are the top three dancers that could fall into the bottom two?

Fiona, Mark and Susanna
