Re: Anib

You do make good points in your observation, and in a way they are likely too. But as I was saying to RPresta, there are times when reality and fantasy gel, converge, ovelap and coalesce in ways that one can't differentiate between what is real and what is fiction.

Re: C C T

I think that's quite a solution or call it an alternate way of handling a warped mental situation.

All of us have inner struggles: sex, work, family, religion....

Ugghhh,  I wish that 'great' authors like Mann would not write about such twisted and immoral subjects.  I suspect that they do it for the shock value, to sell more books / plays / movies, etc.,  and to promote their own twisted moral values,  or lack thereof.  Similar to 'soap operas' on TV,  which generate scandal after scandal,  corruption, crime, etc.,  even glorifying it when the evildoers get away with it. 

But your commentary on it,  as always,  is interesting and making good points.  You certainly do read a wide range of literature.  Cheers

A grueling subject to contemplate , one wonders how an intelligent man cannot

 somehow twist his fantasies into a more acceptable condition. The strange thing here is that the boy apparently enjoys the fantasy, but one suspects not the reality.

I think if I had been caught in that dilemma I would have searched for a female who had boyish looks who would simulate the the warped experince of my sad condition.

Re: Kabu, no matter

These mental sicknesses are so overbearing that one finds oneself completely helpless, no matter how great their skills may be. Thanks ma'am.

Re: Aba Brother

Thank you dear sis! I fully agree with your viewpoints. Sometimes art and life overlap, converge and coalesce; it then becomes difficult to separate one from the other. You will find examples of such in Eugene Ionesco's 'Rhinoceros' and Luigi Pirandello's 'Six Characters in Searh of an Author'. I love these two plays.

A very sensitive write, even to the dramatic end where you recognize that the boy has found that he has such power over this man.

Wow! Great post. Where does one draw the line between creativity and insanity; art and pseudo-art? It's highly subjective, as your really excellent post illustrates (pardon the pun-lol). To me, it may be easy to forego common and accepted good taste to produce sensationalized product, be it film, written, musical or otherwise, and call it art. On the other hand, to produce an awareness in an artistic fashion not commonly known and call that art, may border on true art. The fine line between perversion and art is not so fine if it crosses into areas of the lewd and unlawful, such as child porn. There is NEVER an instance justifying or referring to that as art. Well told, Aba bro.
