Reply on section 3:
Right? Well, Jessica is very much like the teacher’s pet, she wants to prove she’s the best at everything in this new paradise of hers. She enthusiastically takes part in everything and does all she’s supposed to. I’m pretty sure she never gave John a second thought most of this time, just assumed he was going along (it feels like in the application process it was pretty much the same). The impotent thing may not have started right away, or she may have been just too tired at the end of the day for sex, and got interested in it again only after she had another project in mind: children. Who knows. In any case, they said that the bedroom and toilets are not recorded - not that I’m sure I trust them. When there’s a camera, it’s always possible it’s on.
While the ad was, like nowadays, very suspiciously on point (suspiciously? they know they’re being watched), actually helping people who have trouble adjusting wouldn’t be against the interests of the resort. I thought that kicking them out would be the best and easiest option, but either because they want to keep up a socially acceptable face or because it’s part of whatever human experiment they are conducting within that resort, a dedicated clinic doesn’t sound like such a strange idea. It may or may not be sinister - I guess we’ll see.
I took 鈍感 to mean “thick-skinned/insensitive” rather than “dull”, given the comparison with John’s oversensitivity. It sounded like an insult but in these circumstances (and many others) being 鈍感 is a blessing. Sensitive people have way more problems than thick-skinned ones in their daily lives, that’s for sure.
