You better believe she does.
Each man pulsates microscopic hints that signal his thoughts and actions to the woman whose goal it is to stay first and foremost in his mind.God help him if he’s a lousy liar to begin with." …about orgasms: Don’t end the evening by asking her, ‘Did you come?’ It’s akin to taking a trip with a kid who asks every five minutes, ‘Are we there yet?’ Since you don’t know un we tell you otherwise, your wife will say, ‘Yes honey, thanks for rockin’ my world!’— just to get you off her back (front, or whatever.) Believe me, you’ll know when she enjoys sex with you; because she won’t be able to shut up about it." Wives, here’s what he’s thinking… …about whether he turns you on: "Most men do care about how they look in a pair of jeans.

Skolastik Fantazya, arkaik dönemlerin olağanüstü masallarına ilişkin çağdaş popüler kültür odağından yapılmış eleştirel bir fiil çekimi; verili olana tutsaklığın bastırılmış acısını bin bir türlü oyalamayla savuşturan popüler kültür olgusunun iğdiş edici değerler alanına yönelik yapısökümcü bir girişim… "Büyü bozucu" bir girişim de denebilir buna.
Değişmeden kalanı görüp rahatlama ve böylelikle var olanı kabullenme dürtüsünün onayına katkıda bulunur bu girişim. Bu yüzdendir ki, etkisi sözcüğün gerçek anlamında ideolojiktir. Masallar, belki de en çok bu niteliklerinden ötürü "değişmeyen mutlak"ın anlatılarıdır. Masalın gizli politik/ideolojik önermesi geniş halk kitleleri üzerinde yarattığı büyülü onayda bulur yankısını... Masallar kurgusal alternatif bir sosyo-politik toplum modeli önermez. Olsa olsa kurulu toplumsal düzenin karşısına çıkarılacak olası alternatif düşünme biçimlerini öne çıkarmayı amaçlar. Masal bir yönüyle de teselli edici bir tür fantastik yatıştırıcıdır. Uyuşturmayı, teselli etmeyi amaçladığı ölçüde acıtır; uyuşturduğu yer zaten acının merkezidir… Skolastik Fantazya, popüler haz odaklı yaşamsal rutine yönelik bir uyarıdır. Kişilerin gerçek yaşamlarına fazladan hayal taşır.
