DONNY'S BAR MITZVAH (2021): "A Rude and Raunchy Coming-of-Age" with Teen Handjob Hannah

Kristen Yoonsoo Kim's New York Times review called Donny’s Bar Mitzvah "A Rude and Raunchy Coming-of-Age". Kim's first paragraph will serve as a plot:

The year is 1998. Donny Drucker (Steele Stebbins) is 13 years old and his family has thrown him a glitzy, red-carpet-worthy bar mitzvah, inviting classmates and relatives to toast his newfound adulthood. Shot entirely like camcorder footage from the point of view of a hired videographer, Jonathan Kaufman’s debut film, which he wrote and directed, has all the potential to be endearing and nostalgic, even if it’s slim on plot. Instead, “Donny’s Bar Mitzvah” — which is littered with chaotic party scenes of horny, dysfunctional attendees — oscillates between offensive and offensively unamusing.

For the purposes of this blog, we'll focus on the "raunchy coming-of-age" parts of the movie.

Approximately, three minutes into the film, we're given in the impression that Donny loves DP.  

In addition, we learned a lot about Hannah, aka Handjob Hannah, Donny's middle-school classmate. We learned that she got "finger blasted" in class while watching Bill Nye" and apparently Hannah doesn't restrict her sexual services to handjobs. Here's the dialogue that took place between the middle-schoolers at the bar mitzvah:

"Handjob Hannah?"
"You know she got finger blasted last week in class while watching Bill Nye The Science Guy?"
"Yes, I know that."

"Dude. Hannah is a whore. Kiss her? Yo man. You're gonna get a blow job tonight!"
"I mean. He's right. You are gonna get your dick sucked bro."

Lastly, we learned from Hannah that her dad called her "sugar tits", and she was part of the team of nymphets demanding that another young guest, "Show us your dick!"  

But Hannah was not involved in the middle-school lipstick lesbian kissing scene.

But Hannah did remind me Amy who was Gatsby's (Timothée Chalamet) gorgeous and sexually advanced Jewish high school sweetheart in Woody Allen's A Rainy Day in New York (2019)

Gatsby shared, "Amy was gorgeous and so sexually advanced. Word on Amy was she performed oral sex at a Bar Mitzvah. I think they should make that a part of every Jewish holiday [...] And what a great Hanukkah gift."

Kim's New York Times review wasn't favorable, but Donny’s Bar Mitzvah got a whopping 83% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes and 7.3 out of 10 stars on IMDb.

Kepnes' YOU LOVE ME: Budussy & Teen Age-Gap Love Triangle

Here is Penguin Random House's plot summary for Caroline Kepnes' You Love Me:
Joe Goldberg is done with the cities. He’s done with the muck and the posers, done with Love. Now he’s saying hello to nature, to simple pleasures on a cozy island in the Pacific Northwest. For the first time in a long time, he can just breathe.
He gets a job at the local library—he does know a thing or two about books—and that’s where he meets her: Mary Kay DiMarco. Librarian. Joe won’t meddle, he will not obsess. He’ll win her the old-fashioned way . . . by providing a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. Over time, they’ll both heal their wounds and begin their happily ever after in this sleepy town.

The trouble is . . . Mary Kay already has a life. She’s a mother. She’s a friend. She’s . . . busy.

True love can only triumph if both people are willing to make room for the real thing. Joe cleared his decks. He’s ready. And hopefully, with his encouragement and undying support, Mary Kay will do the right thing and make room for him.

As you can see, there doesn't appear to be any nympholepsyany in the novel. Or so I thought, until I read the last 25 pages of the 385 page turner. Interestingly, the two previous novels in the series, You and Hidden Bodies, didn't contain any nypholepsy. However, season two of the Netflix adaptation did take advantage of the allure of nymphets.  

You S02E03

For example, in episode 3 of season 2 of You, Joe confronts Ellie Alves, his 15-year-old neighbor, about "chasing an internship" with Henderson, a famous much older comedian. Joe advised Ellie, because Delila, Ellie's older sister, informed Joe that when she was 17, she was drugged with GHB, raped and photographed in Henderson's sex dungeon. 

Ellie didn't take Joe's advice well, she assumed that he wanted her to call him Daddy, and she asked him if he wanted to "fuck" her, because, "Everybody wants to fuck the 15-year-old!" 

In You Love Me, like Penguin Random House shared, Joe met Mary Kay, but the publisher didn't relate Nomi, Mary Kat's teen daughter, who had an extended age-gap relationship with Seamus, a short CrossFit enthusiast with "piercing blue eyes and a strong jaw", who went to high school with Nomi's mom, where they had sex when Mary Kay was 17. Seamus inherited Cooley Hardware, the local hardware store, where Nomi worked, "But just for a few months."

There were clues about Seamus' nympholepsy. For example, at the gym:
"[...] Seamus is working out two feet away, singing along to Kid Fucking Rock, who waxes nostalgic-pervert about his whisky-soaked glory days mounting an underage girl by a lake."
And Seamus scolded Joe, but Joe and I assumed that Seamu was referring to Mary Kay:
"Whole shit ton of girls out there, Joe, and you just had to fix your eyes on mine."
"The worst part about all this, oh man, she tells me she wants you and she says that me and her can be friends."
"One week ago, one fucking week ago she was in my cabin with me and you come back outta nowhere and boom. Finito. She'd be here right now if it wasn't for you, you bookworm piece of shit." 
Photo: The Bibliofile

But during Joe and Marky Kay's wedding, Nomi:
"She wants to dance and this is wrong - eighteen is too close to seventeen - but she leaves me no choice. I rest my hands on her hips and I hit bare skin, but if my hands go any lower, they're on her ass, if they go higher, they're on her chest. She looks up at me and there is moonlight - Are people looking at us? - and she smiles [at Joe]. "I owe you."
"[...] and she runs the tips of those fingers through my hair."

Subsequently, Nomi filled Joe in on her age-gap relationship with "Uncle Seamus":

"He told me he was gonna 'teach you a lesson' for trying to steal me away, like it's not my choice. Such a jerk."  

Apparently, Nomi and Seamus' age-gap affair took place throughout Nomi's high school career:

"He could be sweet, though, like driving to Seattle to pick me up from Peggy and Don's to take me to his cabin. I don't think I would have gotten through high school without those weekends."

Nomi even shared how her age-gap relationship started:

"But kids here...they're like kids everywhere. They suck. Seamus was just, I mean one day I was bored hanging out by the creek near my old middle school and...there he was." 

Joe attempted to convince Nomi that she was a victim:

Joe: "He's a rapist."
Nomi: Now she sits up. "You stop it. Nobody raped me, Joe."
Joe: "It's call statutory rape. And it's wong."
Nomi: "Oh really, Mr. Morals? Mr. Hiding in the woods watching me...."

And of course, Joe incorrectly diagnosed Seamus as a pedophile. 

Very interestingly, Kepnes made Joe a Woody Allen fan: "[...] say what you will about him...his movies have a lot of great female leads." And Joe even suggested Woody to Nomi:
Nomi: "Now you're gonna tell me that you didn't push me to watch your favorite movie..."
Joe: I hate that this is true-I did that, I pushed a teenage girl on Woody Fucking Allen [...]

Although Joe denied it, Nomi was under impression the Joe was suppressing his nympholepsy:

"One word," she says. "Budussy."*

"That that whole time you helped me at the library you were making eyes at me all nervous about getting caught and you keep looking to see if my mom noticed. You were so cut, Joe, So cute."

*Per Lena Dunham, budussy is: "[...] butt, dick, and pussy,[...] I mean, it’s a useful word.”

Nomi's an avid reader. But did she read The Red Queen, because she knows that most men are nympholepts\ephobophiles. And she shared that she's an (open) teleiophile:
Joe: "I'm horrified by what Seamus did to you but I am not like that."
Nomi: "He didn't do anything to me. I like older guys. You and Seamus like younger girls. Almost all guys like younger girls. There's nothing wrong with that [...]"

To avoid any more spoilers, I'll abruptly stop here, but I'm certain that you see Kepnes' use of the allure of nymphets. 

Lastly, of You Love Me, Stephen King opined: "Hypnotic and scary...totally original.

AMERICAN BEAUTY (1999): A Teen Desires Oral & Sex with BFF's Dad

In American Beauty (1999),  Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey), a middle-aged writer, fell in love with Angela Hayes - his 16-year-old daughter's best friend. This happened after Lester became completely enthralled by Angela's cheers during halftime of the high school basketball game. While Lester sat in the bleachers, he imagined that the blond nymphet opened her cheerleader uniform to seductively expose her young fountains for his pleasure. 

As his wife slept next to him, Lester continued to fantasize about Angela. And he confessed in a voice-over, “I feel like I've been in a coma for about twenty years, and I'm just now waking up.” This sentiment is often shared by nympholepts after their natural ephebophilia has been awakened by a nymphet. 

When Jane apologized to Angela about her father's flirting, Angela shared that guys started "drooling" over her and thought about her when they "jerked off" when she was 12: 
“I'm used to guys drooling over me. It started when I was about twelve. I'd go to dinner with my parents. Every Thursday night. Red Lobster. Every guy there would stare at me when I walked in. And I knew what they were thinking. Just like I knew guys at school thought about me when they jerked off...I liked it.”

When Jane apologized again for her dad's behavior, Angela replied that if Lester got a bigger chest and arms, she would "suck his big fat dick and fuck him":
“Your dad's actually kinda cute. If he just worked out a little he'd be hot...Oh, come one. Like you've never sneaked a peak at him in his underwears. I bet he's got a big dick...If he builds up his chest and arms I would totally fuck him. I would suck his big fat dick and fuck him until his eyes rolled into the back of his head.” 
Lester overheard their conversation. Consequently, he went to the garage and began lifting weights. After the workout, he masturbated vigorously, in bed next to his wife, as a dreamed about Angela bathing in a tub of red rose petals.
Lester's daughter pleaded, “Just don't fuck my dad. Alright? Please?”
Interestingly, Angela replied, “Why not?”
American Beauty won five Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor (Kevin Spacey), and Best Original Screenplay,

PissTok: TikTok's Gen Z\Teen Pee Fetish


EJ Dickson wrote in her Rolling Stone piece "TikTok: What IS Urophilia? Gen Z Fetish Humor About Getting Peed On" (APRIL 12, 2021) about "[...] PissTok, a segment of TikTok in which zoomers purport to have a raging pee fetish." (A zoomer is a member of Generation Z who were born approximately between 1997 and 2012 and are approximately between the ages of 9 and 24-years-old.)

Dickson wrote: "[...] the general theme is fairly consistent: an individual, usually a [young] woman, concocts a fictional scenario in which she accidentally-on-purpose engages in piss play and likes it."

As a disclaimer, Dickson shared that the PissTok TikToks are jokes but are "[...] edgy enough to attract attention[...]":

"But PissTok is largely dominated by young women, who use the joke as a way to express their ardent sexual desire for their partners or for celebrities [...] So overwhelming is their horniness [...] they seem to saying, that they would happily allow them - nay, even go to great lengths to arrange for them - to pee on them." 

Thus, we can conclude from Dickson that PissToks are edgy jokes used to garner attention. And that PissToks are used by teens to express "ardent sexual desire" and overwhelming horniness. 

On Slate's ICYMI podcast "What We Tok About When We Tok About Piss" (4/21/21), Dickson shared that there has been an increase in teen sex positivity, and she thanked God that Gen Z horniness is taken seriously:

"[...] there's been a real rise in sex positivity and among Gen Z. Joking about wanting to get peed on, even if it cleary a joke, that's not something that when I was a teenager like would have been in the zeitgeist to the extent that it is [...] just claiming [teen] female sexuality in itself you know wasn't really a thing. Like it's probably something that that somebody probably a teenage girl would have been mocked over."

"Thirst in general wasn't really [...] especially female thirst, wasn't something that was commonly accepted [...] [teen] horniness wasn't a thing taken seriously or considered its own currency. And, like, thank God it is now, because it's hilarious."

"It's just been increasingly accepted for young women [i.e., teens] to express their sexuality, in general, and to express their desires, like even, if they're somewhat transgressive or somewhat extreme."

BUT THE LITTLE GIRLS UNDERSTAND (1980): A Back Door Man and Littles Girls

Sharona Alperin on ...But the Little Girls Understand (1980)

...But the Little Girls Understand (1980) was Knack's second album. The album's title was inspired by Willie Dixon's blues song "Back Door Man" - particularly the lyrics: "I'm a back door man. The men don't know, but the little girls understand."

Per Moanin' at Midnight: The Life and Times of Howlin' (via Wikipedia): "the phrase "back-door man" refers to a man having an affair with a married woman, using the back door as an exit before the husband comes home".

It's very safe to assume that Willie Dixon and the Knack were explicitly and implicitly referring to "little girls" and not married women. Why? For one, Sharona Alperin is on the cover of ...But the Little Girls Understand. Who is Sharona Alperin, you may ask? Sharona Alperin was the teen girlfriend of Doug Fieger - the Knack's lead singer. 

 Doug Fieger and Sharona Alperin

Alperin shared with with National Public Radio"I was about 16 or 17 at the time," Alperin told host Guy Raz. "He was nine years older than me (25 or 26). And within a month or two later, he told me that, 'I'm in love with you, you're my soulmate, you're my other half, we're going to be together one day.' 

Sharona Alperin

In addition, (a braless teen) Sharona Alperin was the cover art for "My Sharona" (1979) - the Knack's international number-one hit single. 

And if Dixon were referring to married women, why didn't he sing: "I'm a back door man. The men don't know, but the women understand"?

HBO Max's GENERAT+ION: A Teen Dramedy of Oral Sex, a Handjob and Lipstick Lesbians

Here's the plot summary for HBO Max's genera+ion:
Genera+ion is a dark yet playful half-hour following a group of high school students whose exploration of modern sexuality (devices and all) tests deeply entrenched beliefs about life, love and the nature of family in their conservative community. 
The teen dialogue throughout the dramedy series was revealing. For example, Naomi offered Delilah an Oxy[codone], "I think if you snort it it works super fast." But teen alcohol and drug abuse are for another blog; thus, let's focus on how the series made use of the allure of nymphets. 


Arianna complemented Greta, "Your tits look so good." 

Riley shared with Greta, "I once texted 'I'm so wet' to my dad by accident."

Naomi asked Arianna about the time they tried having teen lipstick lesbian sex, "That sleepover we had where we tried scissoring, and I didn't know I had poison ivy. And I got it in your vagina. Is that why you stopped talking to me?"


Nathan, Naomi's brother, shared on a field trip that, when she was a kid, Naomi flashed the mailman: "Never have I ever shown my vagina to the mailman when we were kids."

Riley, a budding teen photographer, revealed, "I did a photo assignment of these guy's faces as they were cumming."

And after Naomi shared, "I fucked J [without a condom]." She was asked, "What was it like?" "Amazing. I mean it--I mean it was kind of fast 'cause he had to pull out but amazing."


In addition to what we learned about Naomi via the "dark" high school student dialogue (e.g., She keeps Oxy, she had teen lipstick lesbian sex (i.e., scissoring), and she flashed her young vagina at the mailman.), Naomi was shown half-nude upon the high school's toilette where she exclaimed, "Shit on my dick!" She googled: "How to stop gag reflex", and with a tube of lipstick, she tested her gag reflex - in the high school bathroom. And she commenced oral sex on a schoolmate - in the high school bathroom.

Riley and Greta

There's more. For instance, like the two teen lesbian scenes that involved Riley who additionally performed a teen hand job on an aquarium employee - at the aquarium, but I think you get the point of the dramedy. 

Lastly and interestingly, genera+ion was co-created by 19-year-old Zelda Barnz. (Per HBO Max, Barnz was 17 when she co-wrote and sold the pilot to HBO Max.) In addition, Barnz is an executive producer and, unsurprisingly, Lena Dunham is an executive producer too. Dunham tweeted correctly: "This show is so true [...]"

Bhad Bhabie and Malu | Nymphets (18) on OnlyFans: "The Paywall of [Teen] Porn."

Todd Spangler posted on Variety "[Teen] Rapper Bhad Bhabie Breaks OnlyFans Record by Earning $1 Million in Six Hours". Here are some excerpts:
Teen rapper Bhad Bhabie has captured the crown as queen of OnlyFans — claiming that she racked up more than $1 million in just six hours after her debut on the not-safe-for-work site.

A post late Thursday on her Instagram account included a pic that apparently showed her total haul from OnlyFans at just over $1 million, including $757,526.08 from subscriptions, $267,675 from DM payments, and $5,502.35 in tips. “Not bad for 6 hours,” she wrote. “We broke the fuck out of that onlyfans record.”

A spokesman for OnlyFans confirmed to Variety that the rapper did earn more than $1 million in six hours.

Bhad Bhabie (real name: Danielle Bregoli) just turned 18 on March 26. “From now on im gonna do whatever the fuck I want,” she wrote in a caption on an Instagram post Wednesday.
If you aren't familiar with OnlyFans, the New York Times' description may suffice: "Call it the paywall of porn."

Francesca Bacardi shared on Page Six, "Bhad Bhabie made $1M hours after OnlyFans debut" (April 2, 2021), that, unsurprisingly, some commenters were not pleased with Bhad Bhabie's OnlyFans debut. 
“Damn y’all wasted y’all money to see a girl that just turned 18?” 
“Whoever bought that s–t creepy as f–k,” wrote another.

And, of course, Bhad Bhabie isn't the only teen on OnlyFans. For example, Malu Trevejo, an Instagram and TikTok star, joined OnlyFans only days after her 18th birthday too. And unsurprisingly, some people weren't pleased. For example, per Dankanator, a fan posted: "It’s disgusting how desperate people are for Malu Trevejo to make an OF when she JUST turned 18 less than 72 hours ago. That’s some predat*ry sh*t"

But what we don't understand is why it doesn't appear that anyone is (openly) criticizing the nymphets for creating OnlyFans accounts. 

And one commenter (openly) supported Trevejo:
How dare anyone judge Malu Trevejo for making an OF as soon as she turns 18? So a person can vote, join the army [...] & a ton of other things as soon as their 18th birthday hits, but making an OF is a problem
However, we would imagine that Orthodox Muslims and Jews would agree that woman, of any age, should avoid posting on OnlyFans and that men, of any age, should avoid subscribing to OnlyFans. In other words, age is not the deciding (moral) factor in this area.

Christopher Columbus' Settlers Demanded Pre-Teen Sex Slaves

Dylan Matthews posted on Vox "9 reasons Christopher Columbus was a murderer, tyrant, and scoundrel: Why do we even celebrate Columbus Day?" (Oct 12, 2015). And what was the eighth reason?
8) Settlers under Columbus sold 9- and 10-year-old girls into sexual slavery 
This one he admitted himself in a letter to Doña Juana de la Torre, a friend of the Spanish queen: "There are plenty of dealers who go about looking for girls; those from nine to ten are now in demand, and for all ages a good price must be paid."

Here's an excerpt from Columbus' letter to Doña Juana de la Torre via Boyd's Christopher Columbus, His Life, His Work, His Remains, Vol. 2: As Revealed by Original Printed and Manuscript Records:

BAD BOYS II (2003): Megan Fox Defends Clubbing in Bikini at 15

Bethany Minelle reported for SkyNews that "Megan Fox defends dancing in bikini for Michael Bay aged 15 in resurfaced clip: In an Instagram statement, the actress says the media and society have "mishandled" the information from the viral footage." (Tuesday 23 June 2020)

Fox says [on Jimmy Kimmel Live (2009)]: "I had just turned 15 and I was an extra in Bad Boys II. They were shooting this club scene and they brought me in and I was wearing a stars and stripes bikini and a red cowboy hat and six-inch heels.

"[Bay] approved it and they said 'Michael, she's 15 so you can't sit her at the bar and she can't have a drink in her hand', so, his solution to that problem was to then have me dancing underneath a waterfall getting soaking wet."

The audience then laugh, and Kimmel replies: "Perfectly wholesome."

Clarifying her age, Fox goes on: "At 15, I was in 10th grade. That's kind of a microcosm of how Bay's mind works."

Consequently and unsurprisingly, some women were upset with Michael Bay and Jimmy Kimmel. For example, Liz W posted in a since deleted tweet: 

teen girls being preyed on by older men has never been taken seriously and still isn't

And Ruby posted:

this is so disgusting,, she repeatedly said she was 15 and he + the crowd just joked about it ?? 

However, in an Instagram post, Fox surprisingly defended Bay:

But when it comes to my direct experiences with Michael [Bay] [...] I was never assaulted or preyed upon in what I felt was a sexual manner. 

Wow, I can 't believe it! Typically, like Liz W and Ruby, actresses will deny any responsibility for their actions that took place in their teen years and will state that they were, in fact, "preyed upon". I'm stunned that Fox did not say that she was a victim and was forced, days after turning 15, to dance in a stars and stripes bikini, a red cowboy hat, and six-inch heels.

Vanessa Springora's "Consent: A Memoir": "Electric" Gabriel Matzneff's Sexual Affairs with Teen Fans

We wrote a post about Le Consentement, the French version of Vanessa Springora's Consent: A Memoir. The first paragraph from the dusk jacket of the English translation will serve as a memoir summary:

Vanessa had been waiting for love since she was five years old. At thirteen [13], she thought she found it [...] Vanessa met G. [Gabriel Matzneff] at a dinner party boasting some of France's biggest authors. G. was a man with an electric presence - brilliant, romantic, with a fatherly smile. Vanessa and G. went on dates to bookshops, exchanged passionate letters, shared tender embraces in stairwells. G. was fifty [50] years old. This is not a love story.

However, the first five sentences of the dust jacket and the first one-third of the memoir does sound like a love story.  This raises the question: Did Springora, like Kate Elizabeth Russell of My Dark Vanessa and Alisson Wood of Being Lolitause the allure of nymphets to sell the book by describing scenes of graphic age-gap sex but then end the book by describing her current trauma - thereby avoiding being canceled? Don't answer. That's a rhetorical question. But interestingly, Springora shared in the prologue: "Today, I view books with suspicion."

Let's share some excerpts from the memoir, which Springora opened with: 

"AT THE THRESHOLD OF LIFE, UNBLEMISHED BY EXPERIENCE, my name is V., and at the grand old age of five [5], I am waiting for love." Aww...

In addition to waiting for love, at the age of five (5),  V. had a habit of going to the boy's bathroom to help, "[...] David pee straight. I hold his weenie for him." Really?

Several years prior to the sixth grade, V. engaged in pre-teen pre-sex. For example, V., Julien, and Julien's cousin ([...] a girl a little older than the two of us [...]"): 

[...] had a collection of accessories that seemed to us incredibly erotic: feathers [...] One of us would be designated the consenting prisoner, while the other two would set about stroking the powerless victim, who was usually blindfolded and handcuffed, nightgown lifted or pajama bottoms lowered [...] We thrilled at the delicious caresses, and sometimes even furtively placed our lips, screened by a piece of fabric, on a nipple or a smooth mound." Delicious caresses?

V. got her period in the 6th grade and wrote: "Since my father had fallen off the radar, I had begun desperately trying to attract men's attention." But this implies that if V.'s father were around, she would not have tried to attract men's attention. Question. Is V. implying that she "desperately" tried to attract G.'s attention. And is V. blaming her absent father for her age-gap affair? Yes. V. wrote:

A father, conspicuous only by his absence, who left an unfathomable void in my life. A pronounced taste for reading. A certain sexual precocity. And, most of all, an enormous need to be seen. All the necessary elements were now in place [to be victimized].

Wait, now I'm confused. Is V. additionally blaming her absent father for her "taste for reading" and "sexual precocity"?

V. was fourteen (14) when she met G. whom she described as "handsome", "scrupulously maintained", with "[...] the lean physique of a Buddhist monk, preternaturally blue eyes - that was all it took to seize my attention." "His voice [...] insinuated itself inside me like a spell, an enchantment [...] His presence was electric."

Once again, the reader can infer that V. is implying that if her father were around, she would have been able to resist G.'s electric presence (i.e., If V.'s father were around, G.'s presence would not have have been electric.)

Gabriel Matzneff

Interestingly, V. did not (clearly) take any blame for her part in the age-gap sexual affair with G. that was consummated with anal sex. 

[...] this was the one thing I'd been dreaming of. In a confusion of bravado and romance, I had already secretly determined the inevitable outcome - G. would be my first lover. That was the reason I was lying on his bed [...] 

G. flipped me over on the mattress and set about licking every single part of my body from top to toe: back of my neck, shoulders, back, hips, buttocks. Something of my presence in the world dissolved. And, while his greedy tongue insinuated itself inside of me, my soul took flight.

That is how I lost the first part of my virginity. Just like a little boy, he whispered to me in a soft voice. 

Even though V. shared that she was "dazed with love". She confessed: "I could have stood up and left. I wasn't afraid of G. He would never force me to stay against my will, I was sure of that." 

When V.'s mother, whom came to condone the age-gap relationship between G. and her daughter ("She sometimes invited him for dinner in our little attic apartment."), initially threatened to send V. to boarding school, V. responded: 

"How could she think of depriving me of this, my first, my last, my only love? [...] I would never agree to be apart from him. I would rather die." 


To make a long memoir short, ultimately V. ended the age-gap affair, but not because she came to the realization that she was a victim. (She had to be convinced of that later.) Why? V. wrote:

Conversely, all the girls dreamed of meeting him. One day a girl asked me if he would read a story she'd written. Nothing could be more valuable than a "professional" writer's opinion. The adolescent girls of my era were a lot more brazen than their parents imagined. A fact that obviously delighted G.

Consequently, the beginning of the end of the famous age-gap affair commenced after V. was informed, "He's cheating on you." And, "I saw the old man you're going out with on the bus, kissing another girl." 

[...] if I could have been sure of being the first and the last - if I had, in short, been the exception in his love life. If that had been the case, how could anyone fail to pardon his transgression? Love has no age limit. That was not the issue.

And the end came after V. read in G.'s notebook about his rendezvous with Nathalie whom G. described as "radiant". "We spent a delicious, divine time together." Consequently, V. wrote:

This lie was the last straw [...] I'd been cheated, tricked, abandoned to my fate. And I only had myself to blame.

To be clear, (almost) every (Orthodox) Muslim and Jew would agree that G. should not have had a pre-marital sexual affair with V., and that V. should not have had a pre-marital sexual affair with G. However, it appears that most readers would (openly) opine that V. is a complete victim, and thereby, completely innocent of her part in the affair. And that G., V.'s absent father, V.'s mother, and the French literary society are solely to blame. 

But does V. really believe that she shares no responsibility:

And when, later on, the different therapists I saw did all they could to explain to me that I'd been the victim of a sexual predator, even then it seemed to me that this wasn't the "middle way" either. That wasn't wasn't quite right.

Lastly, I don't have the numbers for the English translation, but, per Zaleski of The Daily Beast, Le Consentement: "[...] quickly sold out at many Paris bookstores, as well as on Amazon." And Le Consentement was awarded the Grand Prix des Lectrices ELLE (2020).

The cast features Valeria Arguelles, Nicole (Colie) Nuanez, Owen Holt, Julian Jara, Jovani Jara, Jada Wesley, Gaby Obregon, Raul Encio and Sabrina Quesada.

Whoever has the highest ranking at the end of the show gets an overall contract with AwesomenessTV to take their stardom to the next level.

Clearly, AwesomenessTV decided to take advantage of the allure of nymphets to get views for the Next Influencer and, by doing so, has streamed some raunchy aspects of pop culture that have become an aspect of the teen zeitgeist.

For example, a number of the Next Influencer teen contestants wore (cheeky) thongs, there was a (lipstick) lesbian kiss, and there was a twerking teen.

Not that long ago, twerking was relegated to strip clubs and rap videos, but after Miley Cyrus twerked at the 2013 MTV VMAs, she helped propel (white girl) twerking into the teen zeitgeist and consequently onto the Next Influencer.

And it used to be that one would have to order a Girls Gone Wild DVD to see college coeds kissing, but not anymore. From Netflix to TikTok, one can see that teen lipstick lesbian kissing is a part of pop culture.

Lastly, when Hugh Hefner started Playboy, I can't imagine that he would have imagined that a teen would be wearing a Playboy bikini in a mainstream (reality tv streaming) show.
