I’ve got a personal question for the women on the boards: Have you ever gone to someone for help in a situation, only to have the person say (or imply): “Why, certainly, but only if you blow me/have sex with me/let me have me way with you first”? It seems like a common motif in movies for a helpless, naive woman (not that I think any of you are helpless or naive) to beg a big, strong man for help saving her family/raising money/whatever, he gives her a lecherous grin, and the audience is left to figure it out for themselves. The women’s reactions can range from outraged refusal to teary-eyed acquiescence.
I’m curious how common an occurence this is in real life; I don’t think it’s as prevalent as it might seem, but I could be proven wrong. It’s never happened to me personally, but I wonder what it would take for me to say yes. Also, if you don’t mind telling, what was your reaction to the person’s proposal?
