With someone you objectified, it would be really really really awkward.
this is like.. half a post. i'm sure.
who i fancy just for their looks who is also probably famous and have been like "wanna get your clothes off baby liek woah".
but i can't imagine i'd resist much. am i a bad person?
i was just thinking, what would you talk about?!?!
or just not talk. If she started to say something I'd go "ap ba ba bap, put a cork in it and take your clothes of". Am I a bad person?
you chauvanistic cunt
Man that is awkward
Seems almost derogatory in this conext.
"what if you ended up with the chance to sleep with someone really hot and famous/thought to be 'out of your league'"
I didn't have a clue what you were talking about before.
Well, I'd do it. I'm sure it would end in awfulness and I'd get upset, but it'd be worth it.
Why, you haven't been talking to Stephen Malkus, have you?
someone showed me a really amusing youtube video involving some comedian telling a story about when he met the rather unbelievably attractive M.I.A and it got me thinking.
It's the kind of thing where if you don't then it can play on your mind for the rest of your life.
can I have your hand in marriage?
Now go buy me a wedding cake.
sat around the house all day, while I work my finger to the bone
It is my right to eat chocolate and watch Jeremy Kyle!
I get the kids
Little Billy just had a shit in your shoes again.
Well, I learnt something today. You shouldn't make snap decisions based upon your awe or physical attraction towards somebody. I guess we all got carried away, and now we're older and just a little bit wiser.
Join us next week, when me and Tom will be doing drugs
But that's not that interesting is it. Objectify would seem to mean to think of someone's body as an object, i.e. to depersonalize or dehumanize - page 3 models for example. Fetishism would be more about being specially attracted to someone for reasons that are personal to you, that others might not be able to understand or see themselves.
i can hardly keep my eyes open.
interesting points though
fetishism to be the sexual attraction and lust towards an object. Yes the reasosn for this may be personal for instance in the persons development.
I see more that Fetishism can lead on from when someone has objectified someone or something.
God, this reminds me of my exam where I was bleating on about paraphilias...
you can have a fetish about an object, or a specific part of the body. Fetishes, although sometimes seen as perversions, are seldom related to power struggles, as the 'objects' are usually inanimate. However, bestiality and necrophilia can be seen as fetishes, and obviously power does come into that.
Objectification is viewing a person as an object - i.e. seeing them as powerless, and not granting them any autonomy or free will (in actuality, or in your own head). Radical feminists argue that pornography objectifies women.
beastiality and necrophilia not as fetishes but as seperate paraphilias.
Your last sentance was basically the point I was trying to make in one of my exam questions!
two years ago! I don't remember studying paraphilias though (I did Cultural Studies, not Psychology) but that sounds convincing, yes.
In our seminar for this course, our tutor brought in a copy of Fiesta, and we all had to pass it round and comment on it.
you can have my copy of Gluck instead?
men with nice hair, naked except for a cardigan and some plastic framed glasses, that kind of thing.
Pornography for women never takes off, because it's argued that women get more aroused by situations and narrative than images. So photos are the least likely things to be successful.
I haven't seen these indie man porn pictures, but I imagine I would find them amusing, rather than erotic.
MIss AMP and Francces May from Plan B were constantly referring to all and any pictures of indie boys doing things such as reading, stroking cats or cooking as Indie Porn. Apparently, there are websites.
naked except for a cardigan, glasses.
My ears are burning
I think there's a flickr group on this precise subject. Which I may or may not have been involuntarily entered into.
Soon it will be Emo kids stroking parrots.
*free shit punchline alert*
It brings a whole new meaning to the term "stroking your pussy".
I didn't see your post, my posts take their time to germinate before blooming into beautiful flowers.

can we see it then?
cats = ace
catriona = allergic
