US Pretty Men
P.S. I just noticed that I had cut and pasted the wrong word into my comment To “Pat” (“Which is Why”), and that may have caused confusion.
From just this perspective (and Sarah’s article has other nuances), a willing woman can be raped, and the title was not misleading in the extreme.

because I was addressing Pat’s assertion that there is no context in which a willing woman can be raped and, therefore, “the thread ‘when rape is a gift’ is misleading in the extreme” (in other words that, therefore, Sarah’s ideas about consensual rape were invalid).

Thank you for your understanding, I appreciate your reply and compassion. While I mentioned my rape on occasion, I never meant to elicit sympathy; I thought I only brought it up when it seemed to bring meaning to a point, but I realize now, by other comments, this is not the place to do that.
I have been so intrigued by my desire for this life. It has been very confusing. I should think this site would be wrong for me, and yet I felt so safe. The men seem to get it, you seem to get it and the women are great. I look forward and try to understand what everybody has to say. Why do I understand that rape is a gift when at the same time I flash for a second to a terrible memory? (a memory I immediately turn off.)
I think the emotions that I can’t shake, and the years of forcing myself to be strong, actually led me to admit that I can’t do this on my own, I need my husband. When I realized that, this flood of relief came over me that I can’t describe. He was willing to take over and do this for me, it just makes me want to give him whatever he wants. The taken in hand lifestyle gives me such a perfect way to express my appreciation to my husband.
