This happened to me the other night. A dear friend and I were talking about our kids and how to help them transition from children to adults. The topic of dating and relationships came up and we started talking about my story.

We are smart, courageous, funny, beautiful and yes… sexy. I felt the same, she is hot! Leg bag and all. Both night owls, I have been up with her in the wee small hours and was even subjected by association, to the incessant messages and attack from her online stalker—a woman in Canada who also has an SCI Spinal Cord Injury and who is so hateful and angry at how Rachelle lives her life that she has made it her sole purpose to harass, slander and attack her in every public forum that she can.

It takes a lot of strength to be subjected to the viral judgment and ridicule. Some have spurned her way of doing things over the years. They have chosen to pour hate on her for raising money through her notoriety, for not working, for choosing a surrogate, for having a baby, for getting public attention and, yes, for the ability to get funding for the things she needs to live comfortably.

We want to sleep with MUCH hotter women. I was surprised since the guys I asked are all good-looking, successful in their chosen fields and have no problem getting dates. But they all agreed that to sleep with stunning women, the easiest way was simply to pay. We want to be in control.

Although one guy did admit he paid a prostitute once so that SHE could be in charge. But generally, they all admitted to being more open about what they wanted and more physically satisfied when they paid for sex. Emotionally, of course, remains to be seen.
