Chapter 29 comments:
OK, so now that is settled. Saeki surely is his mother, and they had sex , Sakura surely is his sister, and they will also have sex at some point . What is still left is how exactly Nakata fits into the puzzle…
Anyway, the book is picking up so much speed that I keep thinking it should be over in the next 100 pages or so, but there’s still 400 pages left
And then those sex scenes… sounded pretty boring tbh I mean, I shouldn’t be surprised as I’ve met enough men who think that this kind of “wham-bam, thank you ma’am” is the epitome of good sex, but somehow I had hoped that an author (of all persons) might come up with something more flavorful. Anyways… on to the next chapter
By the way, I personally didn’t find the sex scene to be boring or poorly written. Maybe a little overly graphic. But then again, I am a guy, so maybe it doesn’t take much to impress me. All I will say is that the situation alone was enough to make me feel unsettled and somewhat disturbed.
I totally don’t blame you! And in my opinion it’s not really about “being easily impressed” but instead about “where is the focus”. I’ve met a bunch of guys [trigger warning nsfw] for whom the most important things are penetration and orgasm. And I mean, I can understand, it’s totally in the interest of nature to behave like that. Unfortunately, I don’t roll like that and so this description of “woman is already hot when she meets the dude” → “woman quickly goes for penetration” (which is the standard topic in porn material aimed at dudes) is not something I can relate to too much, plus it feels somewhat unnatural to me. That’s why I said it was boring.
Yeah, that’s perfectly understandable. I think it’s safe to say that the scene was written from a male perspective with a male reader in mind - regardless of whether or not that was a conscious decision.
Now, my question is, what demographic was the Johnnie Walker scene aimed at?
