Good grief!Wouldn't one rather put all that energy into one's own sex life instead of into the imaginary lives of imaginary beings?I mean, especially if you aren't getting paid for it?Puzzled in Manhattan ....Love, C.
Problem is, the kind of people who spend their effort on this sort of thing are probably spending less effort than it would take to get the equivalent enjoyment from a sex life...
Of course the original Tyellas article is scholarship, which means it isn't really about sex. Right?*Which is more than one can say about some truly hilarious LOTR slash fiction I've been pointed at. (You can google it yourself; I'm not going to post a link.)Much of it seemed to be written by people who had never actually had sex. My guess is that they would put their energy into their actual sex lives if they actually had sex lives. Or perhaps slash fiction can be viewed as a king of adult personal ad, looking for someone with similar tastes? I suppose I should be charitable, however. Given my history, I should be the last person to question anyone's hobby.*Of course it's by a scholar with an Elvish name, which makes one wonder.
Argh.As one who is guilty of very much scholarship, as well as many another transgression ....Well, argh.Again.smooches -- C.
