In high school, I scammed with my best friend's girl. That sucked. Well, I mean, my best friend's girlfriend was totally hot, and it was nice while it was going on, but the repurcussions totally sucked..
In addition to coming out as a high school accessory to cheating and fagging it up with Force Guy, I may as well travel to the very end of the limb and say that I think that the taboo of infidelity makes it interesting, if not intoxicating. The allure of the forbidden has to be what draws so many people into the snare.
Don't get me wrong; it's clearly a rotten, rotten thing. Probably the most rotten thing imaginable. That's what makes it so interesting.
Thinking of it in terms of sheer intensity and passion, I guess I am somewhat infatuated with the dynamics of infidelity and it triggering the "ground zero" of human emotion. Everthing from the cuckolds that sign up for those wife-swapping videos to the bitterness of betrayal and the suicidal tendencies of those wounded by the act....
I am interested in how one kind of action can produce such a range of emotional responses, and the ways those responses transform interpersonal relationships.
It's powerful stuff, to be sure.
