Last Call // Glossary-Chapter 5

Chapter 5:  Company Time Components

cycle continuum  one of four critical components identified within the hook-up and dating world; the often very predictable cycle that individuals can find themselves going through over and over again starting with one’s people pools, then first-night stands, with some rolling into speak-daily partnerships, followed eventually by a partnership contract termination short of cohabitation; a hook-up and dating lifetime series whose parts eventually blur together and can no longer be separately discerned

lucky seven venues  one of four critical components identified within the hook-up and dating world; acknowledges the various venues human beings can first meet each other and/or initiate a new sexual partnership; human habitats; human playpens; human animations; human preserves; human corrals; human zoos; human jungles

social lubricants  one of four critical components identified within the hook-up and dating world; acknowledges how alcohol and music consumption and the associated outcomes of intoxication and contact dancing, respectively, can lead to human beings hooking up and possibly dating longer term

intimacy tools  the first part of one of four critical components identified within the hook-up and dating world; in the heterosexual version, acknowledges how money and makeup enable males and females, respectively, to enhance their sexual appeal to the other

intimacy weapons  the second part of one of four components identified within the hook-up and dating world; in the heterosexual version, acknowledges how power, including the power of charm, and the possession of a vagina are ultimately what engages the opposite sex for a sexual encounter; often leads to adding another to one’s lifetime sex partner count

people pools  the first of four steps identified within the cycle continuum component of the hook-up and dating world; the accumulation of opposite-sex people from their past which one can reach out to, or who can reach out to them, and those one actually sees on a regular basis; the former creating an individual’s historical people pool; the latter creating an individual’s current people pool

first-night stand  the second of four steps identified within the cycle continuum component of the hook-up and dating world; encompasses a first time sex act, after which the two people: never speak again; speak but never see each other again; see each other again but never have sex, or end up having sex again

speak-daily partnership  the third of four steps identified within the cycle continuum component of the hook-up and dating world; when a first night stand moves beyond just a few sex acts to speaking daily or near daily; typically broken down between the first six weeks, the second six weeks, the next three months, and then six months and beyond, wherein certain things start happening or stop, assuming the partners make it that far

contract termination  the fourth of four steps identified within the cycle continuum component of the hook-up and dating world; a particular partnership ending short of any formal cohabitation

contact call  any means enabling a person to contact another; basics include phone calls, text messages, IMing, e-mail, and social networking communications; also includes information which provides for stopping by where one works or regularly socializes; contact call info therefore includes one’s phone numbers, e-mail addresses, social network accounts, and/or places of employment and socializing

historical people pool  the accumulation of opposite-sex people from one’s past which one can reach out to, or who can reach out to them; people from high school, college, former jobs, gyms and neighborhoods, as well as past vacations or group summer houses; even if a person has lost track of someone, the power of Internet search engines and the breadth of social networking websites make it easy to locate them

current people pool  those one actually sees on a regular basis, both known and not-yet-known opposite-sex people; a school or workplace, and/or the bars, restaurants, and other public social scenes a person regularly frequents; for those who maintain themselves, a co-ed gym or spa; any regular commuting schedule that utilizes mass transit

life parameters  a person’s respective living arrangement, school/work location and weekly schedule including commutes, hobbies and family commitments, which naturally adjust over time; considered especially important between two people who have formed a sexual partnership which is operating on a longer-term speak-daily basis

backdoor account  someone who is just one contact call away from an in-person get together and a possible sexual encounter

human habitats  one of the (getting) lucky seven venues where human beings first meet and then possibly proceed to initiate an eventual sexual encounter; consists of neighborhood environments, especially townhouse and apartment complexes, which enable human beings to meet others without venturing far from their own nest

human playpens  one of the (getting) lucky seven venues where human beings first meet and then possibly proceed to initiate an eventual sexual encounter; consists of interactive environments, such as school and group hobby participation; generalized by its concentrated and somewhat self-contained settings, especially if living on campus; also includes shopping excursions, whether within one large store, or many stores housed in a mall; parks, including the beach, or those with amusement rides, where people hang out for any extended amount of time

human animations  one of the (getting) lucky seven venues where human beings first meet and then possibly proceed to initiate an eventual sexual encounter; unlike physical venues, this virtual domain allows one to stay connected to others through the Internet 24/7; traditional online dating and matchmaking services substantiate such encounters often turning explicitly sexual in nature; while short of actually touching or smelling someone, visuals via modern webcams potentially go much further than other venues especially with zoom-enabling options; 3-D online digital cartoon worlds such as Second Life and doctored up photos on social websites allow for some to span greater gaps in physical ranks

human preserves  one of the (getting) lucky seven venues where human beings first meet and then possibly proceed to initiate an eventual sexual encounter; consists of the many co-ed gyms, spas and resorts where physical fitness and sexual attraction is viewed very positively, where fitness and longevity are the focus

human corrals  one of the (getting) lucky seven venues where human beings first meet and then possibly proceed to initiate an eventual sexual encounter; regular commuting or occasional travel involving buses, trains, planes, and ferries, or any other form of public transportation where dozens or even hundreds of random people cross paths; instances of captive audiences, often one-on-one, while sitting next to or across from others for extended periods of travel

human zoos  one of the (getting) lucky seven venues where human beings first meet and then possibly proceed to initiate an eventual sexual encounter; the workplace, whether for pay or volunteerism, can bring people together for more time in a given calendar month than any other lucky seven venue; despite guidelines and restrictions, many go on to hook-up with bosses, co-workers, supply vendors, customers, etc.

human jungles  one of the (getting) lucky seven venues where human beings first meet and then possibly proceed to initiate an eventual sexual encounter, or if already known, execute an immediate sexual encounter; the ultimate lucky seven venue in which alcohol and music are served usually in abundance; ranges from private parties at a house, apartment or hotel room to partying at business establishments such as restaurants, bars, nightclubs and lounges; meeting and hooking up can happen instantaneously

LAIR map  acronym L(ubricant), A(ctivity), I(mpact) and R(esult) map; the social lubricants alcohol and music lead the human being genders down parallel paths: alcohol -> consumption -> intoxication -> sex pursuits; music -> dancing -> sexuality displays -> sex attractions

bottle service  a feature of many upscale bars, nightclubs and lounges where patrons may purchase entire bottles of liquor for their personal consumption; typically includes a reserved table for the patron’s party and mixers of the patron’s choice; bottle service can include the services of a VIP host, who will ensure that patrons have sufficient mixers and will often make drinks using the patrons’ liquor bottle and mixers; the purchase of bottle service sometimes results in cover charges being waived for the purchaser’s party, and often allows patrons to bypass entrance lines; cost of a bottle is usually extremely marked up, often by 2000% or more (21x), and can comprise a significant portion of an establishment’s revenue

intimacy equation  a four variable approach to summarizing how a male and female engage each other for their company time and possibly sex; money + power = makeup + vagina
