I’m getting annoyed at the entertainment industry in general for lack of realism, and yes, in these lame times where there are more “reality” shows than ever before. We watch
Then, there is the sex. Maybe I’ve been doing something wrong all those years, but have you ever seen a scene where someone goes to the washroom after the act, to actually clean up? I haven’t. There are times when a shower is needed, and yet, it’s never even hinted. Where I grew up, above the store my parents owned, wasn’t a prestigious neighbourhood, far from it. At one point there was this woman down our street who was believed to be a prostitute. Her bathroom window gave out on our alley. On more than one occasions I’d seen her cleaning herself up, you know leg up on the side of the tub type of position. I did wonder why she needed to wash “there” so often, so I asked my mother. I still see my mom’s face, red, and unable to explain why that woman was doing that. Besides being told to stop looking over there, I was also told: “at least she’s clean”. Ah! I just love my mom.
I’ve been reading Charlaine Harris’ books lately, and the main character, Sookie, often makes a point to brush her teeth before bed, and brushing her hair after her shower, etc., but she never says or does anything about taking a shower after her passionate love making to Vampire Bill. I just think it’s strange. Which bring me to another question: If you’ve been watching “True Blood” (which I enjoy but not as much as the books, of course!) you know that vampires do cry, and when they do those are tears of blood. Does that mean than when they reach their sexual ecstasy it will be blood as well? Am I the only warp mind who thought of that? I doubt it, but I might be the only doofus who asked, right?
I leave you with a quote to which I relate completely from Jim Carrey:
“Ya know what I do almost every day? I wash. Personal hygiene is part of the package with me.”___
