one imagines there were probably people fucking their brains out on the titanic at the last minute . . .
Veddy Interestink! Might the...um...position to which you refer be ”crisis-sparked romance?”
Like the condition Heidi Postlewait wrote of in ”Emergency Sex and Other Desperate Measures”?
“ripping off her boyfriend’s clothes immediately after coming under sniper fire in Somalia (‘It has to be right now, not in ten minutes, not five … Emergency sex’)”?
Or like the MASH episode where Hawkeye & Hotlips canoodled after holing up in an abandoned hut after getting shelled while returning from working a forward aid station?
Meaning, a fast-n-furious emotional buildup requiring an…um…immediate physical release?
But the horizontal zug-zug usually follows
the event rather than preceding it.
IMHO, Titanic couplers would've been steerage passengers, rich fucks like Caledon Hockley (Billy Zane in "Titanic") were too busy trying to save their pampered @$$e$.
