Junot Diaz's Nymphet and Henry Miller Fan

On the uptown 4 train today, by serendipity, I stumbled upon a connection between Henry Miller's Sexus, Junot Diaz's The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, and a nymphet in an age-discrepant relationship. 

In Diaz's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, Ana Obregon is, "... a pretty loudmouthed gordita who read Henry Miller [e.g. Sexus] while she should have been learning to wrestle logic problems." 

13-year-old Ana was introduced to Henry Miller by her 24-year-old boyfriend before he left the east coast to join the military. 

"He used to read passages to her all the time: That made me so hot," she said.

Famous Ephebophile: James Wood

66-year-old Academy Award nominated actor James Wood has a new nymphet. She is 20-year-old Kristen Bauguess. Surprisingly, the media is not concentrating on their age difference. Kristen's recent legal woes seem to be more titillating. On June 8th she was arrested for possession of marijuana and a controlled substance, both a felony, speeding, failure to register an automobile and switching licence tags to mislead.

James recently broke off his relationship with Ashley Madison after a seven year relationship. James and Ashley starting dating when Ashley was 19 and James was 59.

MY FATHER THE HERO (1994): 14-year-old Katherine Heigl in a Thong

In the movie My Father the Hero (1994), which was adapted from the French version of the film, Mon père, ce héros (1991), 14-year-old Nicole (Katherine Heigl) has an insatiable desire for the older men at a Bahamian resort. In an effort to attain the affection of the ephebophiles, Nicole attempts to make them jealous by pretending that her approximately 45-year-old father is her lover. 

If the plot was not shocking enough, as you'll see in the clip below, the 14-year-old Heigl appeared in the film in a very revealing white thong, which unsurprisingly caused a backlash in the media.

Pavel Pavlovich, The Eternal Ephebophile

I wrote on my writer's blog about what the award winning non-fiction writer Rich Cohen wrote in a Vanity Fair article about his effort to ghost write a book about Theodore Forstmann. Cohen wrote, "Writing a nonfiction story is like cracking a safe. It seems impossible at the beginning, but once your're in, you're in."  And I mentioned in The Allure of Nymphets that once I started writing the book, I was inundated with examples of age-discrepant relationships - often by serendipity. I'm still finding examples, almost on a daily basis, which is why I'm going to include at least 50 new pages in the second edition. 

One such occurrence took place recently while I was in Brooklyn attending a gathering for a newly retired colleague. I decided to give him a copy of The Allure of Nymphets as a retirement present. (By the way, someone at the gathering called my book "dirty".) While we were discussing the book, I told him that I could literally feel and sense when some media would have an age-discrepant theme. 

Consequently, after a sneaked away from the gathering, I continued reading Dostoyevsky's The Eternal Husband on the subway, and to my amazement, the novella contained Pavel Pavlovich Trusotsky, a middle-aged man who aspired to marry 15-year-old Nadia.

The Eternal Husband was published when Fyodor was 49-years-old,and this is how he described the nymphet Nadia:

Nadia was better than all her sisters - a small brunette with the air of a wild thing and the boldness of a nihilist; a thievish little demon with fiery eyes, a lovely, though often wicked, smile, amazing lips and teeth, slim, slender, with a nascent thought in the ardent expression of her face, at the same time still quite childish. Her fifteen years spoke in her every step, every word. It turned out later that Pavel Pavlovich had actually seen her for the first time with an oilcloth book bag in her hand, but now she no longer carried it. 

However, Pavel Pavlovich Trusotsky made a seduction faux pas, which reduced his chances of marrying Nadia.

Lastly, the age-of-consent in Russia was lowered to 14 in 1988, but returned to 16 in 2003.

E.R. Frank's FRICTION: Rumors of a Middle-School Student and Her Teacher

In Friction, 14-year-old Stacy informs 13-year-old Alex and some of their middle-school classmates that Simon, their science teacher and soccer coach, likes Alex, which takes on significant meaning after Simon's hand accidentally brushes Alex's, "... little, but not a bad shape," breast in school, which left Alex's chest, "... warm and soft ..." And after Alex accidentally sees Simon's penis, "... his rain-slicked wet thing above a jiggling sack of skin, and a nest of brown hair. Everything." on a camping trip, Alex couldn't get her science teacher's, "... thick-looking and sluggy ..." thing out of her head.

After Stacy continues to spread the rumor that Simon is attracted to Alex, Tim, a middle-school classmate, informs a bewildered Alex that, "Older men like younger women...Everybody knows it, Alex. Come on." Subsequently, Alex begins to think that maybe she likes her science teacher as well. She said:

"What if that slow, sliding feeling I've been getting lately is because I like him? Most of me knows it can't be, but then why am I suddenly restless sometimes, in the middle of the night or at school, or even on the soccer field? Why do I want to feel something light, maybe on the arm or the lips, and how come, even though I think it was an accident that time Simon touched my chest, I can't get it out of my mind?"

I'm not going to spoil the ending, but I will say that it involves another dramatic age-discrepant relationship that explains why Stacy insisted on spreading the rumor that Alex and Simon were having an affair. 

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS: English Teacher Rapes Student?

I wrote in The Allure of Nymphets about how the first novel in the Pretty Little Liars series has a scene in which two high school sophomores (approximately 16-years-old) "... slowly pulled up the hems of their sky-high minis and revealed their panties.." to a middle-aged man who was having a drink near them at the mall. 

Excuse the pun, but the Pretty Little Liars television show is just as revealing. For example, most teen shows that contain a student-teacher affair story line may last one or two episodes, but the student-teacher affair on the ABC Family show has lasted over three seasons. The affair between Mr. Fitz, the high school English teacher, and Aria began when Aria was a 16-year-old sophomore.

In the clip below, Aria has a daydream that someone exposed the affair to the principal. The scene is dramatized, because not once during the last three seasons did Mr. Fitz fear that he would go to jail for statutory rape. Why? Because the age-of-consent in Pennsylvania is 16-years-old. Mr. Fitz's only fear was that he would lose his job for making out with his student in the classroom, in his car and in his apartment.

Famous Ephebophile: Pablo Escobar

I got this photo of Pablo Escobar and Maria Victoria from The Paris Review's Instagram webpage. In 1976, the 26-year-old famous Colombian drug lord married Maria when she was 15-years-old. The ephebophile and the nymphet had two children.

TOWELHEAD: A Nymphet Addicted to Masturbating

I saw Towelhead some years ago, and read the novel about two months ago. I recently re-watched the movie to compare it to the novel, and to write a post about them. The two are very similar and I can't say that one is better than the other; therefore, I'll concentrate on writing about the novel. 

On page four of the novel, Jasira, the 13-year-old protagonist, fantasized about running away with her step-father whom she was confident "liked" her more than her mother; so, she would be able to, "... wear whatever I wanted to the breakfast table."

By page 26 of the novel Jasira had become accustomed to masturbating by rubbing her legs together. The 13-year-old said, "After the second one came, I started trying for a third." 

On page 35 she found out that her 36-year-old neighbor, Mr. Vuoso, was going to cheat on his wife, but she said, "I just don't understand why it couldn't be [with] me."

However, by page 66 of the novel, Mr. Vuoso started precariously acting upon the mutual attraction between him and the nymphet. He took her virginity with his fingers, which in Jasira's eyes made her Mr. Vuoso's girlfriend. 

And beginning on page 231, Jasira describes how Mr. Vuoso, "... bit one of my nipples...put his penis in my mouth...Then he had me lie down beside the coffee table on my stomach and put his penis inside...[Then he] put his penis back in my mouth again...pulled his penis out of my mouth and pointed it a my face. Some of it went across my lips..."

Ironically, despite Jasira's proclivity to masturbating and sex, she was told repeatedly throughout the novel (over six times) and the movie, "You're too young to have a boyfriend (i.e. You're too young to be attracted to the opposite sex.),"  which is a recent mindset, because prior to the turn of the 20th century, Jasira and Mr.Vusos' "only" crime would have been fornication and adultery.

STOP THE BITCH CAMPAIGN (2001): "We're Only High School Prostitutes!"

In an earlier post that I wrote about Japanese high school prostitutes (i.e. Enjo Kosai), I mentioned the movie Stop the Bitch Campaign, which is about middle-aged Kuni, who has a love/hate relationship with nymphet prostitutes. Kuni has an intense attraction to them, but he fears that their behavior is harming Japanese society; therefore, he sets out to stop their immoral behavior by ironically having violent and humiliating sex with them without paying. 
I finally got a chance to finish viewing the movie, and I found the logic used by the young prostitutes to justify their part-time jobs intriguing. Their logic had feminist overtones (e.g. We can do whatever we want with our bodies. Plus, we're just high school girls having fun). 

Correctly, Kuni didn't agree with their faulty logic. Incorrectly, he didn't go about rectifying the situation in the best way.
