I read this in our local paper yesterday. Annie's Mailbox is a couple of ladies who took over from Ann Landers and appears daily
I'm still trying to formulate my thoughts on it. On one hand I find it amusing. On another hand I find it incredibly offensive. And on the other hand - wait shouldn't we only get two - I think underneath the insulting aspect, there might be a kernel of truth.
Dear Annie: I read about your column about the woman who freaked out because her husband had a few pornographic tapes. She said she felt inadequate about measuring up to the women in the videos.
As a librarian, I have to read books I might not otherwise, including romance novels. Many of them qualify as soft-core porn, although they use words rather than pictures.
Does this woman read bodice-rippers?
If so, does it occur to her that her husband might feel inadequate next to the long-haired, bare chested, tight trousered heroes riding enomorous stallions across the moors?
She needs to realize that most people know the difference between reality and fantasy and that there is a place for both.
Dear Not Stuffy: As long as neither activity becomes an addiction or removes intimacy from the relationship, we agree people are entitled to their fantasies.
Any other thoughts?
