Cheated...

... as I was reading the news headlines today, one in particular caught my eye... it was an article on the inner workings of Marilyn Monroe's mind... how could one pass up such a gem to read over the morning coffee?... indeed, I certainly couldn't...

.. the article drops a few bombshells, too... it goes on to say that Monroe attributed her ability to achieve orgasm to the teachings of her psychiatrist, Dr Ralph Greenson.... well, at that point in the article, I was began to perk up just a wee bit.. my mind began to wander... dizzying tangents of possibilities spun and streaked... the overall conclusion?... I bet old Ralphie loved going to work in the mornings....

... add to that a quote from Miss Monroe...

"Speaking of Oscars," she says, "I would win overwhelmingly if the Academy gave an Oscar for faking orgasms. I have done some of my best acting convincing my partners I was in the throes of ecstasy."

... whoa... now, I'll be the first to concede that Marilyn's inability to find a man who could satisfy her is deeply sad... however, I also feel that we, her fans, have been horribly cheated...

... for instance... most men (and some women) get all kinds of hot'n'bothered when they watch Meg Ryan moan and coo through her fake O in "When Harry met Sally"... Hell, I'll admit that it is a sterling piece of acting... and it is not without it's turn-on ability either...

... but gentle readers, just imagine...

... just imagine how much better that scene would have been if she'd pulled a Meg on us.. dazzling us with her Oscar-worthy orgasm-faking ability... and notice the glasses, too... very nice touch, if you ask me...

... I shudder to think, people.. I really, really do... but one thing is for sure, though... "How to Marry a Millionaire" would have been the biggest hit of 1953.... Hell, people would STILL be buying copies of it today...

I'm anti-faking... after all, no sense in rewarding a poor performance...

I agree with Princess Cat. It's especially detrimental if it's a regular partner.

Personally, I don't think women need to fake...they just need the right partner. {wink}

Women fake because otherwise they would have to share their FEELINGS...
