What are you thinking?

In Mel Gibson's romantic/comedy flick What Women Want, Mel gets an electric shock and as a result he can 'hear' what women are thinking. The disaster leads to some funny situations in the movie and eventually happily ever after for Mel.

However, what if the same happened to you? Er, not the electric shock but being able to 'hear' peoples' thoughts. What if you could read minds? Would you want to? Would you freak out?

What will you do -- or how would you feel -- if you learn/hear that your partner thinks about someone else while having sex with you?

How would you react if you knew your partner fantasises about Salma Hayek/ Hugh Jackman/ or both while having sex with you?

Similarly, how would you react if your partner's fantasies involved someone you/he/she knows? Your best friend?His/her boss?

UPDATE: One person says, "There is a huge difference between fantasizing about Katrina Kaif and fantasizing about the neighbour." Thus, celebrity is ok, real person is not.
Waiting for more answers...

PS: Silly Billy insists on attacking my fingers when I type. Argh. At least pups cannot climb tables. Now he is trying to bite me toe. It is always the right, big toe. I don't understand.

June said...

oh! my partners thoughts i know .. 'I want beeer'. I dont think it goes beyond that.

Thank you for spending time on my blog. I plan to take my puppy to Denmark to, it will cost me a liver, but will be worth it.

From one love immigrant to the other...who would have thunk women like us would actually give up cities and all thing familiar for that thing called love.

Eve* aka JB said...

@ Sree: Ok. Try this. What do you think will be your Partner's reaction if he finds out you definitely don't ever fantasise about him? :D

@ June: And thunkyou for reading mine. Ah. I'd already sold my liver and one kidney to get here, so couldn't get doggie. Miss him loads though. Got a new kitty (pussy?) now. Lessee how this goes... One thing called love and all things familiar. Makes me shudder sometimes.

Eve* aka JB said...

@ June: AND, the Danish men are hot. HOT. Aussie blokes drink beer, watch footy, get fat and repeat the sequence. Partner's not fat (yet). ;)

June said...

Hot i agree with. Football and beer Aussies and Danes have in common.

I have lurked on your food blog for a while too. Looking forward to the day you put up some recipes with panch puran (sp ?) thats my favoritest spice.

By the by I am from LSR too. Meenakshi Gopinath will turn in her braless blouse when she knows what her feminist bots are upto.

Eve* aka JB said...

@ June: there's hardly much to lurk on that... "paanch phodon". hmm. Will someday put up a daal recipe. Achcha, one question. Has anyone EVER touched MG to see if she is actually braless?! Er, by touched I mean, not the you-know-where, but like patted her back or something to see if there's a strap!?

june said...

This was in 96 and She had outlawed wearing shorts to college there was me in my shorts near the cafe. She put a maternal arm around me to explain why shorts cannot be worn to classes and I saw it from that (.) close.

Swati said...

i know what he thinks about...sex..beer...sex...food...sex...
..sex...beer...man katrina kaif is hot....sex again....

Eve* aka JB said...

@ Swati: (do not get offended but...) so you are ok with him thinking of having sex with Katrina Kaif while he is having sex with you?

@ June: So while you were being scolded you were staring at her t**s. Interesting point of view. I never really understood the no-shorts thing. And then i was caught smoking outside college. Guess that might be the reason they (lsr) ignored me completely after uni... :D

Swati said...

you know when i read it again i realized what i'd written...actually he'll never admit that he fantasizes about other women...he ogles openly but not more than that...so i really dont know..somehow it doesnt seem realistic to expect that he never thinks about anybody elsr...and i think there's a huge difference between fantasizing about katrina kaif and fantasizing about the neighbour...i'm pretty ok with the former

Eve* aka JB said...

@ Swati: Chalo, at least one Clear answer. Let's see what the others say

Goofy Mumma said...

Indeed! Would that be a gift or a curse? hard to say!!

Eve* aka JB said...

@ Goofy: Arre?! That is what I've asked. THINK and tell me whether it would be a gift or a curse to you...

Shady said...

No way I dont want that ability , there is too much info and I sure want my partner to rad my mind its not about thinking about someone else its just about thinking ,

........Unimaginable

Renovatio said...

For a woman: Getting reduced to your privvies out loud (at least within the confines of your own Braveheart-kin, newly omniscient head) instead of being mentally undressed. Or both simultaneously, now there's a treat.

For a man: Maybe enough people would mentally retch at the crotch scratching for the chap to get the hint.

Sree said...

He will shocked? oh how the hell do i know.He knows he knows,i think.
And i dont understand about this fantasising about celebrities.To me it has to be someone who has done something to me,to my heart that is.Alrite..gotta go.good day.

Goofy Mumma said...

Can I go with necessary evil, once I have it? It is like an addiction, where I will always know what is on the other person's mind, good or bad, though I may not like it sometimes. It feels so like some other things in life! But i will go with curse, because knowing what someone else is thinking will alter my reaction, behaviour, personality and that would not be nice!

Eve* aka JB said...

@ A: it's reported in an Australian newspaper/website; the content mentioned is global.

Mamma mia! Me a mamma? said...

Truthfully, I don't mind if he fantasises about celebs. People we know? Yeah, that I'd have a problem with!

MLC said...

nope! don't want to knw what's on his mind! what's the fun in life if u know everything the othr prsn is thnkng?? also, its nt like guys can "stop" fantasising if their women don't want thm to!! they're "guys" fr heaven's sake!! so as long as its jst a fantasy w/ reel & nt real ppl, my guy wl live!!

Eve* aka JB said...

@ shady: thanks! :)

@ Renovatio: didn't understand the woman bit mate; agree about the man thingie though. ;)

@ Sree: ah. fantasies are about what you imagine as the ideal or rather what you/someone else might wish for. you might fantasise about what you want someone to do to your heart.

@ Goofy: interesting reaction...the thought that knowing someone else's thought might alter our own behaviour... and not necessarily always to manipulate the other.

@ Mamma Mia: Yeah, mine would be the same reaction perhaps. Except that if he ALWAYS fantasizes about celebs when we are making love...I am still not sure what to think about that.

@ MLC: Curious though, that you and most of us here have assumed that it is only men who fantasize...
