* Women want men to feel attracted to them. For a woman, it’s a huge self-esteem booster when a man finds her attractive. When a woman is attractive to a man, she also has power over him – and that can be a lot of fun as it allows her to yank him around. For a woman, it’s particularly fun when she gets to manipulate a wealthy/powerful individual.
At the same time, women don’t actually want to have sex with a man unless he’s “hot” and “fun.” The majority of women obviously have to compromise (to some extent) on these standards, but their goal is to maximize “hotness” and “funness.” So if you’re Harvey Weinstein or any of these powerful men, women don’t actually want to sleep with you or even physically touch you. They just want to toy with you and extract favors/money from you.
What a lot of these women didn’t realize is that they were dealing with men who were much smarter, more manipulative, and more aggressive than them. So lots of these women sort of ended up getting “screwed” (no pun intended) in the end.
As for Stallone, in the account given in the paper, the assaulted girl claimed that the 1986 encounter with “Rocky Balboa” was partially consensual. Howver, she got creeped out when he brought in his Italian-American meathead bodyguard and forced her to have sex with him.
That seems to be a common occurrence. Famous actor/musician/athlete gets a woman to have consensual sex with him, then passes the woman off to less attractive/famous friends. Stallone passes his groupie off to an ugly bodyguard. The star quarterback/runningback passes off his girlfriend to some fat linebacker. At that point, it goes from consensual to rape.
In his prime back in the 80s, Stallone was a huge action hero and sex symbol. So I’m sure he probably didn’t have to rape women back then. Not like Weinstein, Cosby, etc. These days Stallone may still be famous, but he’s well past the point of being a sex symbol (except maybe to senior citizen women). To the average woman in 2017, it sounds disgusting to think of Stallone having sex with a young girl. In 1986, it wouldn’t have been so creepy.
When super handsome Paul Walker (“Fast and Furious”) started dating a 16 year-old girl, people didn’t say much. Mostly because women thought he was “super hot.” If he had been ugly or akward, there would’ve been more outrage.
If a man is “hot,” he can get away with a lot of stuff.
In conclusion, be “hot.”
* Reminds me of that great SNL skit with Tom Brady some years back. It was a fake 1950s-style training film on how to avoid harassment charges from women in the workplace.
It featured a nebbish man nervously asking women for a date. Each woman sneers in disgust then picks up the phone and calls security.
Tom Brady’s character waltzes up to women at their desks in his underwear, then cups a breast after getting her phone number. The women giggle and swoon.
The main pointers to avoid sexual harassment charges are shown on the screen at the end:
1) Be handsome
2) Be attractive
3) Don’t be unattractive
* There seems to be a fundamental misunderstanding about women on this board. Normal women are are biologically programmed to think they’re going to get an emotional commitment from the man they have sex with him. If he just walks off after sex and has no more interest in seeing her again, women get confused and angry. Woman think a man who is attracted to her on day one should, logically speaking, also be attracted to her on day two, and so forth. When a man acts completely obsessed with a woman on one day and then totally turned off by her the next day after having had sex with her, that makes a woman think men are fickle, two-faced, and untrustworthy. That’s unnatural behavior, to a woman’s way of thinking.
A lot of trouble could be avoided if men understood this.
* It’s nice be a normal, middle-class, moral, well-adjusted American woman. With a husband and children. All this hotness/cheating/groping/horniness talk can sound like modern poetry or art: Utterly meaningless and empty.
Marriage, intimacy, and procreation are where it’s at.
