Poll results

So, judging from my poll , nearly half of you think Clark is either an incompetent lover or very, very gay, because 14 of 29 respondents said that Lana didn't have orgasms with Clark. Despite this, about half of you (I hope not the same half?) think Clark and Chloe should get together next season. That doesn't seem like a nice thing to do to Chloe!! Seriously, though, I didn't realize I had such a large Chlark contingent on my flist. (Gives me an excuse to use my Chlark icon, though).

The other half of you think Chloe should get a guest superhero of her very own to have sex with, an idea I highly approve of. I actually voted for this option, because I think Chloe is over Clark and I'd prefer that she not get sucked into another doomed romance with him, even if I do think they are cute together.

I was interested in how few people said Chloe and Lex should hook up, given that in my Lex dirty sex poll from last week, when I asked about non-Clex pairings, Chloe was the number one person people wanted Lex to have dirty, dirty sex with. (Lionel came in second, and third place went to Martha).

I was actually surprised by the high number of people--a little over a third of poll takers--who thought Martha and Lionel had an affair back in season 2. And as for whether Lex and Lana have hooked up yet, most people said no, though you were very divided as to why. Also, my flist doesn't really approve of Lexana, or at least almost half of you said it made you sick to your stomach, almost twice as many as said that Mionel made you sick to your stomach.

Heh. We're a fickle lot.

Mionel is so dirty and intriguing that I can get behind it. Know what I'm sayin'? And he SO made her pregnant.

But the Lexana.... I got moral conflicts about that one. It's WRONG. I've got a one-track mind when it comes to Lex and Clark. Though I have been thinking of some Bex. Batman/Lex.

Well, if the Lexana were going to be a permanent thing, it would bug me, but we know it won't. In the long run, Clark and Lex will be foes lovers forever, and Lana will just be a footnote. Plus I'm all about someone making Lex happy, right now.

I actually can't see Martha cheating on her husband, even though the "Lionel got her pregnant" theory explains so much that's been strange about her behavior vis-a-vis Lionel.

From a story perspective, Martha's infidelity could be really interesting... I always theorize that Lionel impregnated her, but if that's the case, Martha's really good at acting not-guilty. I can't substantiate my claim with any evidence. *g*

You are not the only one with a one-track Clexy mind. And I don't mind the Bex if there is CLex in the end. Plus, IMO from a DC JLU standpoint, I think Blark (Bruce/Clark) makes more sense, cuz those two in the comics and in the animated series (it is NOT a cartoon people!) are pretty slashy.

Oh, I have that entire series up to the current issue, darlin'. This series is what got me into DC comics (I was orginally a Marvel fan, but DC has taken over my life.) Talk about SLASHY! And, seriously, do not get me started on Justice League Unlimited (good thing it comes on after the kiddies go to bed).

But why would Lana keep begging Clark to fuck her if she never orgasmed with him? I know I wouldn't keep asking for more from a guy that couldn't get me off. I mean, yeah, Clark is gay, but hell, he knows how to find Lex's spot, why not Lana's? I can see him not being as into it (as is evidence by the fact that he found many excuses NOT to do her again), but Lana wouldn't notice because she's all "me, me, me, god yes, me!". Okay, now I'm just Lana bashing. Someone take away by stick. (Of course this is all because I actually like Clark in spite of what everyone else says, so I'm giving my boy some leeway.)

P.S. Lexana sucks ass. I don't even ship Chlex, but that pairing would make me far less ill.

You're too self-assured to be Lana. Lana is supposed to be the Good Girl, so even when she has sex -- which she only has with her True Love -- she doesn't have it because she has any sex drive of her own, that would be *icky*. No, she has sex to prove that the guy loves her. Or because she's under the influence of drugs, alien possession, etc. *gags*

I hate this attitude, but it's extremely common, and I think that's how we're supposed to read Lana. Oh, and we're also supposed to assume that she won't orgasm (if she did such a thing) except by vaginal penetration, so of course she has to beg Clark to fuck her if she's ever going to get off at all. But I think her begging is supposed to be for "sex as a sign of Clark's Lurve", not for sex to give *her* sexual satisfaction.

I think I shall go put on my Godzilla suit and stomp around in rage, now.

Huh. Interesting. I guess I gave Lana too much credit, which is odd because I never give her any credit whatsoever.

There is canonical support for that in season 4, I agree, when Lana basically offers to have sex with Jason to prove her love--but I don't think that is my reading of Lana's requests for sex with Clark. It's not so much "sex=love," but "sex=intimacy/closeness." In season 5, Lana and Clark have sex when he is mortal and therefore feels he doesn't have to hide from her/ he can disclose himself to her. But then he becomes superpowered again, and withdraws from her both emotionally and physically--he won't even "seriously kiss her," as she complains in one episode.

I put that "orgasm" option in the poll as a joke, but my own explanation (as I have belatedly commented to [Bad username: the clexfactor] is that virginal guys don't tend to have great sexual skills, and canonically we only *see* evidence that they had sex twice. So it's possible Lana was hoping Clark's skills would improve with practice.

Sorry, I didn't realize I hadn't responded to this until today!

But why would Lana keep begging Clark to fuck her if she never orgasmed with him? I know I wouldn't keep asking for more from a guy that couldn't get me off.

Well, considering that Clark was canonically a virgin, it's safe to assume that he will get better with practice. But ONLY with practice. So my assumption would be that Lana wanted him to practice on her so his technique would improve.

Clark was a virgin?! HA! Whoever believes that is seriously whacked. I don't care what Alan Miles says, or "canon" says, Clark has had so much sex it's not even funny. Especially (or only) in his Red phases. That summer in Metropolis? Please. Clark wasn't saving himself for anyone. Clark is a big horny bastard (and I love him.) Now, when the ring came off was another story. Maybe normal-not-smoking-the-big-Red-joint Clark was a virgin, but Red!Clark? Not so much.

Wow, interesting results! I am not surprised by the vast numbers of Chlarkers out there, though I'm not one of them. I long ago clued on to that one. Personally, I'm with you--a superhero of her own would suit Chloe better! I like independent-and-moved-on Chloe, not still-mooching-around-about-Clark Chloe. I'm a little perturbed by all the Lexana haters though. I thought Lexana was the new black a little while back in fandom? I see the tide's turned again. *sigh* Personally, I think it's rocking, and Mionel runs a close second in interest value.

The problem is that the Lana hatred remains unbelievably strong (hence my sudden desire to go around defending Lana). For example, the TWOP response to "Vessel" was to suggest that Lana actually saw what was happening to Chloe and ignored it to go to Lex (!!!!) or even if she didn't actually see Chloe, she ought to have have been searching for Chloe rather than going to Lex, and that having romantic feelings in the middle of a riot is apparently the height of self-centeredness. Or something. And those sentiments popped up a lot of places besides TWOP.

Good lord! Yes, I can't really understand the depth of Lana hatred these days. I find it hard to read as anything other that prejudice built up over years of her indeed being a very annoying character. But she's far more coherent, sympathetic, layered and interesting than ever before!

And the argument that she should have been looking for Chloe is ridiculous. I think Lana's being all sorts of generous in remaining friends with Chloe to the degree she is, given Chloe's alliance to Clark and (at best) indifference to Lex. And I'm sorry, but in a riot, I'd be looking for my loved one too--who wouldn't?!

Grr.. This is why I avoid TWOP!
