Though sometimes when I am especially stressed i find a punt is a good stress relief.
Don't you think that's what it's mostly about? I certainly do. I don't feel satisfied after a punt, more like de-stressed. There is a difference. There's always something missing which I suppose is real intimacy. It's got a lot to do with knowing that the girl is faking her persona with you all the time. At least the ones that do put a bit of an act on. The others just make you feel like scum, regardless - lol
