"asexuality is just the lack of a sex drive, or a really low one" uuhhh no. really, no. that is incorrect, you have been lied to, i’m sorry.
asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction to anyone. sex drive is your horny meter. you can still be horny and not be sexually attracted to people! similarly you can be sexually attracted to people and not be horny!! amaze
oh my god this actually clarifies so much thank you
I was discussing anime with some friends and my friend who studied sports medicine/biology explained the significance of each of the Free! characters’ physical builds.
Rei has trouble swimming because as a track runner/pole vaulter, he has really high muscle density and that’s what causes him to sink even though his form is perfect, and to fix this he needs to gain more fat. The butterfly stroke relies heavily on upper body strength though, and this is why it’s the only one he can do.
Nagisa gains an advantage from his height because his short limbs allow him to rotate his arms faster for a faster breast stroke.
Conversely, Makoto’s tallness helps him because the backstroke is a long-axis stroke, so longer arms make him go farther and faster with less exertion.
Freestyle, or the front crawl, is also a long-axis stroke, so again being tall helps. Rin is more powerfully built than Haru and his flip turns boost him a lot farther, but being less bulky makes it easier for Haru to catch up, so they’re pretty evenly matched.
When your girlfriend gets into the shower on cold winter mornings, put a clean towel in the dryer. When you hear the water turn off, grab the towel from the dryer and bring it to her. She’ll smile. Guaranteed.
Little things, you guys. Little things.
karlie is a genius
If my boyfriend did that I’d suck his dick so hard he’d swallow his eyeballs.
This might be late, but the backstroke is also known as the back crawl or upside-down freestyle because both front crawl and backstroke are similar in arm (both are long-axis strokes) and leg (backstroke uses a kick similar to the flutter kick, which front crawl uses) movement.
Essentially, Makoto and Haru’s swimming styles mirror each other (as with their different personalities) and you can even say they match styles.
