Yeah, it's the very definition of being a whore. Wow lol!
Palpatine and Hitler did lol
Relax. I don't loath people who enjoy sex. Did you read my post(s)? You obviously don't understand the point i was making. lol
Nah, whores get paid, you're thinking of sluts.
I say sterilize 'em both, just to be sure lol.
.......then give society a great big enema! lol
Stay On topic. -Darth Boba
Clean up in aisle 1....
I come in here thinking I'm going to discuss the new Star Wars trilogies, instead I find posts about sex, sluts, whores, etc.....I HAVE A BAD FEELING ABOUT THIS....
Let's not stir things up.
stop trolling. This'll be your final warning. -Darth Boba
I will always remember the twi'lek dancing girl's wardrobe malfunction with fondness.
No. -Darth Boba
Lol! Yeah, there's nothing in the films to indicate that anyone ever uses the refresher, either. In the OT, nobody ever eats anything except Jabba. We can make all sorts of assumptions...like, the huge and absolutely untrue assumption that Anakin's fulfillment of the prophecy means "all Sith are destroyed...FOREVER!"
Can I assume that Darth Dru has been ****ed over by a woman a few too many times?
Now, are we talking about Jedi getting nookie in general, or simply the depiction in the movies? First and foremost, these are (like it or not) kids movies based on the old serials/spagetti westerns/Buck Rodgers features that George used to watch growing up - what they became in later years (almost a religion with Zen spin on it) there's a lot of stuff going on 'behind the scenes' that we won't see - indeed, it was a bit surprising to see Anakin and Padme sharing a bed in ROTS (eye candy aside).
I do think that some Jedi, being living, breathing beings would act on their biological urges on occasion - kinda a 'don't ask, don't tell' mentality, while others such as Mace and Yoda may have 'risen above it' over the age....
Stupid special edition.
I think Jedi are allowed all the fun without the hassle.
Um, unless it's on screen involving sexy slave leia clones I don't think casual sex is relevant to Star Wars at all. I mean, yeah, sexy slave leia clone sexual hook ups wouldn't be relevant to Star Wars at all but it'd be hot. However, the point is it doesn't matter whatever off-screen life these characters would have, all that matters is what is presented to the films to logically extrapolate from there as to what we would see in the sequels. And all we can base it on is how it's presented in the series. And in the context of the Jedi life that we've seen, romance and sex are intertwined. And that turned out horribly for the only Jedi we saw engage in that. Therefore Luke would not fall prey to relationships since it destroyed the Jedi. So he wouldn't have a kid. He'd be a monk like all the good Jedi in the prequels were.
You're assuming that all Jedi would think the way Anakin did? That they would all get obsessively attached to their sexual partners? I would assume exactly the opposite myself. And based on TCW, Obi-Wan certainly didn't have Anakin's issues letting go of a woman he was involved with.
And as someone pointed out earlier, there is definitely no indication anywhere in the films that Luke had any idea that his father turned because he had visions of his mother dying. There's a chance that he extrapolated from the throne room scene and Yoda and Obi-Wan's Dagobah conversation that Anakin turned to save "his friends," but there is no indication that Luke associated his father's turn with romance or sex.
Yeah, I'll fully admit the idea that Luke will be monk-like is based around on how the Jedi themselves were presented in the PT. It could change but I just see Lucas continuing that solitary life for the only remaining Jedi Master in the glaxay. Warrior shoalin monks and all that jazz. As for Luke figuring out what made his father turn, I'm also assuming that in the intervening years they would have been filled in on the events of the PT, just so there can be references to it and so-forth from the characters.
Why would we have a whole trilogy of films showing us the mistakes of the Jedi Order just to have Luke repeat them?
LOTF did that and was that much poorer for it. Not hating on the PT but a rehash of it with OT characters and the next generation? . Waste of potential. Won't happen again.
The real question is, were the Jedi order in the PT wrong or was it all Anakin's fault? The PT is ambiguous in that aspect, it never says the Jedi are wrong to say to him that attachment is forbidden, that's just how it turns out. If Luke says "that was wrong, it should be this way" that would be a neat twist. It really lies as to what Lucas thought about the Jedi order and how they were set up, and how that'll reflect upon the ST.
Anakin fell because of his attachment to Padme, but then Luke's feelings for Anakin led to the redemption of Anakin.
Who the hell knows anymore?
Well...I dunno. Judging from Obi-wan and Yoda's behavior in the OT, and some of the things they said and did...I'd say the Order failed Anakin, and they knew it. Especially Yoda. Didn't try to hard to stop Luke from saving his friends in ESB. I think he'd have admitted everything eventually if he'd had more time with Luke. He never once told Luke to let go of his friendship or anything like that.
I guess it's another assumption we fans are kinda forced to make.
The math exercise as regards to the Thrawn trilogy still misses the point that
1) The lowest number of book sales in a trilogy is a realistic upper limit to 'Fan' quotient (in this case single digit million, and it's definitely the most popular EU book, so it's not unrealistic to assume that number of TTT readers > number of dedicated EU fans)
2) Film viewers are in the size category (per film) of the population of the United States, we're talking hundreds of millions (and that probably excludes rentals DVD & BD's).
Not that we haven't left this topic a few pages back..
