Is Anastasia Kane the Michigan hobby’s mental Hercules? Or, is she just another know-it-all? She certainly tries hard to show her brilliance in almost every post; working in the fact that she has a “graduate degree” on more than one occasion.
Since her return to the Michigan boards (Anastasia Kane’s grand plan to compete as a $500 an hour “courtesan” in San Francisco seems to have foundered), her pedantic posting style is really becoming tedious, albeit pretty amusing. The nearly constant references to her education and her condescending style make nearly all of her posts cringe inducing.
I like to think of her as the boards’ own Cliff Clavin, the know-it-all mailman from the 80’s TV series, Cheers. For example, look at this quote from Cliff:
You know, there’s a lot of misunderstanding about rats. The rodendus vermikitis as they’re called in Latin. It turns out our long tailed friend wasn’t after all responsible for the dreaded bubonic plague as alleged through history. Yes, sir. It was caused by an animal called the bubon. That’s right, and the threat by the way is still with us. So if anyone does see a bubon, contact your local authorities.
Now look at Anastasia Kane’s response when a hobbyist on http://www.miadultdestination.com made a light hearted post about female Cialis. Anastasia Kane helpfully responded:
Well, PDE5 inhibitors like Cialis, Levitra, and Viagra have not shown to be particularly effective in women (in terms of sexual experience). PDE5 inhibitors are used medically for certain conditions in both men and women. But studies have had mixed results in terms of showing any type of efficacy for female sexual arousal. One study included almost 1000 women, some estrogenized, some estrogen deficient (this is important because in men, if your testosterone levels are low, PDE5 inhibitors will not work as well) and gave them Viagra. They found no difference to speak of between the experimental and control groups. Adverse reactions were headache, runny nose, visual disturbances, nausea, and heartburn. Two other smaller studies found that some women did experience more sexual arousal and more orgasms.
Really all these drugs do is increase blood flow to the area. For men, this is obviously helpful but the underlying desire is there. For women, I think it’s more of a mental issue/hormonal issue. Testosterone/progesterone creams have shown far more efficacy in terms of helping with vaginal dryness. So anyways, nope, I wouldn’t try it.
See? The Anastasia Kane character is a female Cliff Clavin. Thanks Anastasia, for providing some comic relief (even if it’s unintentional). You’re one of the few who make the boards worth reading.
