Gotcha! I see what you mean now. It might have tried to at first but, as soon as he starts rubbing her thigh it gets really sexy. At least I think so.

It could also be Michelle wants to be cuckolded and is turned on by imaging herself as the ignored Mrs. Waterford

See, that's funny how differently we're interpreting that. For ME, that's when my skin literally crawled cause I was like "look, he's only pretending to give a shit about her. He's playing scrabble with her to assuage his own guilt, or as an ego-god trip. But he's taking actions around her that could easily get her executed or tortured, and right in front of his wife who hates her guts and already wants her dead. Fuck this guy, the Joseph Fiennes charm is all a front and he' grade A awful."

I found Joesph totally unatttrative all together, didn't even now that was him tbh.

I found it hot cuz he was breaking the rules, ignoring all that bullshit god talk and giving into his base needs, cuz he was so attracted to Offred and also turned on by letting her break the rules. It's all a game, man. He did all that to feel the power he has over those women.
Rape is rape is rape and he is the worst but I was kinda into that scene.

See, I think I just literally know too many men like that. Down to the religious fundamentalism and the disregarding the rules when they apply to themselves but enforcing them when they apply to other people and all, and women have to wear burkas cause men cant control their urges. Like, people that would be at home in Gilead. So all I could do was be like "ughhhh.... Jesus, of course this asshole." So maybe I'm extremely biased going into a religious fundamentalist totalitarian universe, lol.

yes yes yes, i like you you are a smarty!

personally didn't find ANY of the sex attractive because even tho Nick the Guardian and Offred are breaking the rules to bang (a la 1984, sex=liberation) and sex for personal pleasure is inherently subversive under most fascist regimes, BUT she is only fucking him to find a little slice of pleasure in a sadistic rape prison. She doesn't even seem to like him. she just needs something that is hers. She literally has so few freedoms and pleasures that to become promiscuious is a way to regain her control.

so even your joy is symptomatic of pain.

conversely, this unpleasurable expierience for michelle is probably resulting in Michelle reading this and getting at least the slightest ego boost from all the attention she's stirred up...ARE YOU READING THIS? ARE YOU HOT RIGHT NOW?
