My reaction to it (and I will admit I only read your synopsis, not the actual article) is that something smells fishy. Why would someone who was persistently in pain during sex be HL. It doesn't make any sense, sooner or later the pain would cause her at least stop chasing after sex, dreaming of sex etc...

...nope, I don't think she's HL either...she has an emotional attachment to sex, for sure...or, rather...to what sex might be like if she didn't have pain...but, she does have pain (either real or imagined...and, really...imagined pain is real...)...

apparently I am too stupid to be allowed to post. It's FICTION, a short story. Ugh, sorry about that. Fictional characters of course, can do anything the writer wants them to, even if it doesn't make any sense to me.

I had the same thoughts as Miranda. Even as a fictional premise, it doesn't make much sense to me.

...say what?...of course we can be closed minded...and, by the way...I don't think any of us are closed minded...it's a fiction story that doesn't ring true...period...if this were a real person, I would suggest she seek counseling as to why she is interested in behavior that continually brings her pain...then, I would question her as to why they don't aggresssively seek medical attention...I have a lot of questions for Big Ruthie, but...she doesn't exist...

>>...I have a lot of questions for Big Ruthie, but...she doesn't exist...<<

Precisely! That is what took me back to the original post and made me realize that I was a dumbazz and couldn't read! I had a LOT of questions. Now I know I can't ask them, so I have to write the whole thing off as a work of fiction I'd never be able to "connect" with because the main character doesn't make sense to me. I don't think that makes me closed minded, I think that makes me a person who wants a certain amount of believability in the characters in works I read, and a person who prefers to read things with main characters I relate to. My free time, my choice.
