I remember after the Weiner scandal, there was so much talk about how no woman wants to receive a dick pick. I just didn't understand it. Not that I'd enjoy getting an unsolicited one from a stranger, but the happy few I've received were... well-received. Why not? It's sexy. It's nice. Why aren't women expected to have a visually stimulated sex drive? We're still people. With eyeballs and groins.
That being said, yes, backgrounds can be distracting. I think I inadvertently insulted a guy asking what the book on his coffee table was. Hey, it just means I kept looking after the first impression!
I love my cats more than anything on this Earth but they have never brought me within ten feet of Jon Hamm. I guess this will continue to happen until I start to walk them.

@frenz.lo Who is the good girl? Is it she?
Well, if the eyeball-haver is me, a fairly speedy fade-to-black.
You made your own empowering choice. I doubt seriously that what you endured could be called tolerating it. I completely understand your point of view. During my assault I felt the best thing to do was make sure I lived and he was caught. I had no opportunity to take control during the assault itself because I was asleep in my home when it began, however, I protected myself from the nightmare of seeing his face in my dreams by never looking at him, and I took control by feigning sympathy and engaging him in conversation. He left in tears, but not by my physicality. It was my "compassion" and his own guilt that made him cry. That is what worked for me with that man. It may not work for me again.
The thing about feeling empowered is that you are more able to keep thinking. That's what keeps you alive. The fact that you remember that you had choices shows that you were thinking. You are clearly a strong woman.
I read about this blot clot issue about a year and a half ago, and freaked out. I literally got up from my desk at work and pulled the thing out. Annnnd... Now I have a five month old baby. True story.
@fabel Seriously. I've already been practicing!
Dude this job would be PERFECT for me. I love pretending not to see people.
