kind of a taboo subject then and even more so now

here is Nabokov in "Lolita"

"Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: The tip of the tongue taking a trip three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta.
"She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Deloris on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita.
"Did she have a precursor? She did, indeed she did. In point of fact, there might have been no Lolita at all had I not loved, one summer, a certain girl-child. In a princedom by the sea. Oh when? As about as many years before Lolita was born as my age was that summer. You can always count on a murderer for a fancy prose style.
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, exhibit number one is what the seraphs, the misinformed, simple, noble -winged seraphs, envied. Look at this tangle of thorns."

See.. I always thought Lolita was a stupid girl. I was envious of her. I have always loved older men.. even when I was that young. I lost my virginity to some random 40 year old in New York and then met another random 40 year old in London (a week later-which I usually count as losing my virginity to because its a better story). Both times I was 16 (no they did not know that). It was great! Anyway.. I loved the man in the novel. An English Professor. I always hated her for fucking up his dreams. I would have been his Lolita in a heartbeat.. especially when he was played by Jeremy Irons.. yum yum!!

The first time I listened to Lolita on audio by Jeremy Irons (One of my favourite actors, by the way) and heard those first words, "Light of my life," in his voice was so sexy, and filled with pain and passion. Tears came to my eyes, I don't know why.

It's a love story-a tragic one but I loved it. A wonderful post by you yet again, Spark.

I just loved Jeremy Irons in the film, Lolita-but she was such a bitch to him I detested her for it. I must admit, she was beautiful though. I often wonder, do most men have a secret desire for their own little Lolita?

I never understood the appeal of younger women. Of course being a woman and lacking a penis, I probably never will understand it. On this I have three comments:
1) Low self esteem!
2) Older women are much more interesting.
3) The older I get, the less tolerant I am of anyone under 25.

There is a difference between a good BJ and a bad BJ.

i agree wholeheartedly with number 2 and 3

My first comment was inaccurate - now that I think about it, it was the Jack of Hearts. Just to clarify, metaphorically
