thanks for your thoughts barb. I hadn’t thought of it that way. Diana’s books do not glorify rape like bodice rippers do, and show the emotions a woman feels. and as for male rape-most of pedophilia is rape of a male CHILD so it might clarify that for some viewers too. I love the books, and I think the video adaptation is fantastic. just hope they can do all the books. if the Simpsons can be on the air this many years, they can surely do 8 (9!) of Claire and Jamie. and I think they’ll make a fortune in DVD sales.
thank you again for giving me a different way to think of the scenes
