Yeah, Robert spends a lot of time convincing himself of things out loud. It feeds into my read that heís not having any more fun than Margot is.

I think what seals it is his line about wanting to fuck a girl with nice tits. Did he really? He sure didnít act like it.

Another thing the author nailed is how ridiculous sex is if youíre not completely out of your mind horny. I donít mean ďbadĒ, but silly. Donít get me wrong, they have really shitty sex (and sex that is bad for them, besides) but that seems to grow from their refusal to acknowledge how goofy the whole scene is.

I agree that both characters had strong points of identification as I read.
