Could you have sex with Michelle Carter?

Commenter GT just sent a link on the Michelle Carter, classic sociopath post from October 2015 to this article. Carter has been in the news recently because she has waived her right to a jury trial for manslaughter in the death of Conrad Roy III.

That was probably a wise move, as any jury would be almost certain to find her guilty. She is a singularly unsympathetic character.

Carter, knowing that Roy was depressed and contemplating suicide, had sent him number of texts encouraging him to kill himself, while simultaneously pretending to everyone else that she was extremely concerned about his safety.

The article that GT linked included this picture of Carter:

She's actually quite attractive, physically. Which got me to idly wondering: when I was younger, had I known what a monster she was, would I have been able to have sex with her?

Most guys, upon seeing that picture, would think, yeah, she's hot, I'd do her! The fact is, all it takes for most guys to be turned on is to see a woman naked. But really, if you were aware that what would turn her on most would be to see you die a miserable death, would you actually be able to complete the act?

Could you remained turned on knowing full well that inside that pretty girl was a hideous monster?

I suppose you could view this as one of those semi-humorous tests of manliness guys will sometimes joke about.

But in a way, it's also a test of character, in the opposite way: are you so insensitive as to be able to ignore the true nature of the she-devil you're with?

(At this point, a fair number of male readers are probably thinking: hey, I've done it before.)

I don't think I could have passed the manliness test.

But who knows, maybe I'm giving myself credit for being a better person than I am.

(And at this point, a lot of female readers are probably thinking, rightly: men are such pigs!)

If I were a guy, the answer would be NO. As a parent, I would be depressed knowing that my daughter was a sociopath.

The worst thing is the possibility of her bearing your child.

My answer is, I don't know, maybe. I can imagine circumstances where I probably would. Definitely best to stay away from someone like that though.

Susan --
But if you were the parent, odds are very slim your daughter would be a sociopath. (I'm guessing Michelle's mother had, at a minimum, tendencies in that direction for Michelle to have turned out the way she did.)

You've just outlined the conundrum.

Oink Oink! I'd just tease her and leave her!

If I fully understood Michelle Carter was a sociopath – I would never have sex with her out of fear. To say the least – she might subsequently blackmail you with a rape claim threat; or even go to the cops with a rape claim – just to torture you. She could drug you and steal from you; if she went to your house, she would very likely clip something for the fun of it. I’m sure you are much more familiar with the possibilities………

Those are a lot of good points. I was actually thinking more in terms of just the sex, as in, just one time, in a neutral setting (like a motel). And the question was really, would you be able to, ahem, perform. (I didn't want to get too graphic.)

But those would all definitely be considerations, especially the false rape charges, which is very much the province of female sociopaths.

Based on the two pictures I've seen, I don't think she's extraordinary hot. She's mostly just young and skinny, which granted, goes a long way, but if you were younger and, say, in college, she wouldn't stand out relative to the other girls around you.

She's got the alligator tears look down but can she do the doe-eyed female attraction stare? I would think that would be hard for a sociopath to fake, since it's driven by emotions that aren't exactly their strong suit.

John Craig said...

Jokah --
Agreed, she's not extraordinary. And she has a tendency to put on weight, though she seems to have lost weight for the trial. And she's definitely attractive ENOUGH. Here are some other pictures of her:

You're right, sociopaths don't feel the positive emotions (though I wouldn't put lust in that category). But they do fake them quite well, at least for short periods of time, and that's all that's required for seduction.

Yes, she's young and that goes a long way. I think guys will do it. They don't care really about a woman's background except her looks. However I am looking forward to her going to prison and being some prison lesbian's wifey. Learn to spread your legs, sweety and muff dive!

I just hope that when she gets out she's fat and the issue discussed in this post will no longer arise.

taking this further a tad further ... would one suppose after the fact she might text the player criticizing the "event" and offer the suggestion he hang himself ?

i do think after one got to know her a bit.. the prospect of repeat events would have a diminished enthusiasm.

but as you know guys don't necessarily have to like a chick to have a go

That's a great point too, hadn't thought of that: "You suck in bed, there's really no reason of you to be alive."

Sociopaths can be lousy in the sack.

I would absolutely still do her and honestly, the thought of having a psycho girlfriend is kind of a turn on; that is for me at least.

I appreciate your honesty.
