The Breakroom S02E01 "The Genius"

  1. "It's absolutely perfect, wouldn't you agree?" Overconfidence dazzled with an expanded ego, quite possibly the perfect recipe for disaster.

I also promise not to give the biggest cheesiest smile and mention, “THANKS GUYS!”

While I once connected prostitution and the writing center through their brief meetings and levels of intimacy, I now question the nature of those meetings and the levels of intimacy available, and like David said in class, I agree that the comparison is a stretch. Here’s where I struggle with a connection between meeting a stranger, a prostitute, for sex, and meeting a consultant at the writing center. Although the ‘client,’ ‘student,’ or whatever, meets with a stranger for a limited period time to meet a specific desire, the level of intimacy between sex with a prostitute and a writing consultation differs. It is my experience that consultations between peers can be genuinely intimate as one discusses personal thoughts—there i…
