Boy, do I love conversations that begin with this question. Nothings more fun than having a know-it-all friend instruct you on the failings of your existence.

Fortunately, I wasnt on the other end of Daves question. My friend Kim was. She was complaining about her romantic life and asking our friend Dave for advice. The issue was sex appeal and how Kim simply oozes with it. Men are drawn to her like shes a hunk of steel and theyve got magnets in their pants. She has few limits, no fears and porn star levels of experience. On the outside, shes a minx.

But on the inside shes broken-hearted. Kim feels deeply and wants something real. But few men she meets see her as relationship material. Thus, Dave was educating us over a bottle of scotch.

Your problem, he said. Is that men are intimidated by sexually assertive women.

How is that my problem? She asked him and nervously lit a cigarette. Sounds like their problem.

You know what its like? Dave took a sip of scotch. Batman.

I see your point, Kim said. Kind ofnot at all.

Youve got Batman, right, he said.  Batmans strong, hes successful, he does good in the world, hes got his life under control.  But see, theres this other side to him, this dark side where all his sensuality and weaknesses are.  We all have a dark side, but Batman thinks he has to fight it. 

Did I ever tell you how much I love Val Kilmer? asked Kim.

Then youve got Batgirl, Dave continued. All she wants is to take direction from Batman, yknow, she looks up to him and never steps on his toes except in cute little sassy ways that really dont threaten his power. Most men really want Batgirl.

But what about Catwoman? I interjected. He wants her too, doesnt he? Catwoman can defend herself. She has her own agenda and doesnt need any direction from Batman. He wants her because shes sexy and strong and tempts him to his dark side. He wants her as much as he fears her.

Catwomans evil, said Dave.
