...for the poor bastard who thought he really loved Paris Hilton.
(I'm sure there must have been one.)
He thought her displays of skin were for him alone. If not the first to see everything she had to offer, he thought he'd be the last.
He couldn't know she'd get off on waving it in some other guy's face, in many thousands of other guys' faces.
He couldn't know she'd get some kind of kick out of making videos, so that every horny teenage male could see all she had to offer by searching the web.
He couldn't know that a sweet-faced woman with a little-girl's body would turn out to be willing to share her, well, assets with anyone who knows where to look.
I know some man out there fell for her, and fell hard, believed her lines about "love" and "devotion" and now rues the day he met her. Not all men are so crass as to participate in the kinds of behavior the "Paris Hilton Sex Tapes" -- which I confess I have not seen -- purport to contain.
PARENTHETICAL MALE-SUPPORTING-TYPE THOUGHT: A lot of people -- especially female people -- like to think men follow their procreative organs anywhere. It ain't so, and I could name names of other men who believe in those old-fashioned concepts of honor and fidelity, and who have suffered for it. The only reason I don't is that I don't want to embarrass them.
How do I know there was some poor fool who bought Ms Hilton's act? Because, in a very minor way, I have been there.
I have believed I was being offered that rare gift of love and devotion by a beautiful woman. I have seen the offer withdrawn in a singularly unpleasant way, and have been forced to learn that it was immediately offered to someone else.
Unlike those who have profited from exposing the maximum amount of Hilton skin, I have kept my own counsel, have withheld what some might consider proof of said female person's desire for me. And I always will.
Men are supposed to be the aggressors, the unprincipled exploiters, the vengeful, evil destroyers of relationships.
It ain't so.
More often than women think, we males are the ones who crave the basic, old-fashioned virtues. And live up to them. Never mind the brazen "Girls Gone wild" guys; they are an aberration.
All most men want to do is love, and be loved.
Does that surprise you, ladies? It shouldn't.
