TMI Tuesday: December 13, 2011

Thank you to Virtual Sinner ( for this week’s TMI Tuesday questions.

Questionable Invitations

An invitation that's basic and to the point πŸ™‚

1. You have been invited to a lingerie party at the Playboy Mansion.


Do you accept? What do you wear?

(for women) You have been invited to a private dinner at Godfather’s Pizza by Herman Cain.

(for men) The wife of a Fortune 500 CEO, reputed to have had extramarital relationships, invites you to a private dinner when the husband is out of town.

Do you accept? Why or why not?

3. Charlie Sheen (for women) or Your favorite female porn star (for men) is making a movie in the city where you live. You happen to meet him/her, and he/she suggests you stop by his/her hotel for a drink?

Do you go?

4. Your boss (of the opposite sex) who has been very flirty with you insists that when you’ve finished a project by working late or on a weekend you bring it by his/her house immediately?

Do you go? Yes or no.
Do you go alone or take a friend along?

5. You’re working on a political campaign. Late one evening, you get a call from the campaign manager saying the candidate (of the opposite sex) would like to see you right away in his/her hotel room.

Do you go? Yes or no.
Do you tell someone you are going there or keep it a secret?
What do you wear?

Bonus: What’s the best invitation you’ve received? Why is it memorable?

    I won’t be playing this week (because all the questions kinda seem the same to me this time), but I do just want to mention that I’m not all that keen on how gendered these Qs are. Charlie Sheen for women and a female porn star for men? A boss specifically of the opposite sex?

    What if I’m a gay man or woman? What if I’m bisexual? (Which I am, I’d prefer the porn star). I don’t want to be told that only the question where there’s a cock involved (Charlie Sheen’s penis, not Charlie Sheen himself :P) is for me. I just think the “you’re a man, this is for you, you’re a woman this is for you” was a bit unnecessary and that the questions would exclude non-straight people less (and work just as well) without it.

    Maybe I’m being a little over-sensitive here, I mean, I’m not hugely outraged or anything, but I just think that these questions are a bit unnecessarily geared towards straight people when they could’ve been easily phrased to better include the spectrum of sexualities.

    • I see your point. And as I reviewed the questions, I thought the same thing that they did not need to be qualified. That’s coming from my perspective as a person who is bisexual, heteroflexible or fluid in her sexuality. However, I chose not to edit the questions and present them pretty much as they were given to me.

      The beauty of TMI Tuesday questions is that they are merely a framework, something to jog your brain and get you to write. So you can select the questions you want and answer them how you feel…if you feel. There have been times if I had answered a question exactly as stated I would not have had a response. So I chose to relate the question to my personal experience. Other TMI players just change up the questions which is often hilarious, a lot of TMI, and very interesting.

      I don’t think that you are being overly sensitive. I think you are pointing out something that probably popped into a lot of readers’ minds, mine included.

      BTW…this week’s questions are made different by the various relationships and the significance and level of power of each. For example, I wouldn’t worry about not accepting an invitation from a stranger, but I would think twice about an invitation from my boss who has significant power over my livelihood.

      Thank you for writing and sharing your thoughts.

        Thanks for getting back to me and for taking my comment in the spirit that it was intended (didn’t want to ruffle any innocent feathers). I understand that part of the fun of TMI Tuesday is that questions often come from a different perspective and I suppose it’s only fair to leave that perspective intact.

        I realise that I could’ve easily chosen to apply the questions personally and ignore it, as you say, it’s the beauty of TMI, but I did feel there was a issue to raise here, if just to make note of it. It’s great that other people felt the same way, so I know I’m not being daft!

        And yeah, I do see that change a bit (though I think whoever Herman Cain is and whichever Fortune 500 wife probably has that power too, being rich and influential!) now you mention it. Thanks for pointing it out. πŸ™‚

        And again thanks for being receptive to my comment when I’m sticking my nose in!

    • Virtual Sinner says:

      I did consider those issues when making up the questions. In fact, it led to the options for male and female. In the end, I decided to be conventional, and let the responder take license if he/she so desired. Responders take license all the time anyway.

      It’s all very well to be politically correct, but sometimes the burden of trying to be fair to every last person is just to much, and it’s better to revert to local custom.

      • Blacksilk says:

        I just can’t see how much more difficult in the boss question to have just said “your boss” and let the reader infer the sex, since boss doesn’t imply any. Or how much more tough it’d have been to say porn star (or even porn star or Charlie Sheen if you really wanted him in it) instead of female porn star, again since the word itself doesn’t imply anything.

        I’m not trying to be politically correct (especially since the word these days carries rather negative nanny state connotations), I’m trying to be open-minded and inclusive and trying to encourage others to be too. There’s a lot more under the sun than just man loves woman and the more we encourage talk that shows that, the more people will learn to accept it and the more LGBT people will feel accepted. If local custom is to be overly heteronormative, I don’t want any part of it.

        Thank you, though, for replying to me.

  10. Rose says:

    I’m also up, but I do agree with Blacksilk that it’s a bit the same and basically just with different people and a different setting.
    Since I’m also bi I also agree with Blacksilk her point of view, if you would answer the questions accordingly there is no room for other then straight answers. I suggest considering it for the next time πŸ˜‰

    What do Herman Cain and Charlie Sheen have in common?
    Absolutely no sex appeal! (to me)
