This thread has taken an interesting turn. Maybe someone should write a 'Phoenix For Beginners'' guide.
I know I made the common mistake at my first party of coming too soon. Now I relax and enjoy the feeling more and change girls more regularly. It makes the whole experience last longer.
The popping strategy is an interesting one to hear opinions I think, it is probably whatever works for anyone, but interesting to hear from as many people.
I have achieved a 3-popper one single time and I left the place dancing, but with a shore dick. There was another that I decided to exercise control from the first bird and I pissed off Emily plenty when she realised. And believe me you don't want to piss Emily off. She wants a pop and wants it now.
There are other times that I was having a well deserved breather and then a girl drags me to play with her and I cannot exactly say no. I think definitely though you need to go with a bit of a build-up. No sex or wank for a couple of days before. The most disastrous time was when my OH decided she wanted her monthly fuck just a couple of hours before a scheduled phoenix party!
