2 questions about Vulcan/Human relationships.

Although I refer Vulcan/Human paring to Human/klingon. There is something that keeps bugging me about a Vulcan/human relationship.


First, is it fair to compare it to a human/vampire relationship. Vulcans could live for 200+ years when human are considered lucky if they get to live up to a 100. Anyone human that enters a relationship with a Vulcan know what they are signing up for, it is not happily ever after as humans get old when Vulcan are still in their youth. Am not saying it’s a bad thing but it will definitely get awkward for any human to watch their partner age a lot slower than them.

Secondly, since Vulcan’s are 3 times stronger than humans are humans likely to enjoy sleeping with a Vulcan or are they likely to find it hurtful?

Leave the vampires out, refine your topic, and this might make a good subject for a General Trek Discussion forum thread. However, it really hasn't got a lot to do with the movies being discussed in this forum.

Would you like me to move the thread for you?

Maybe he's referring to Spock/Uhura in ST XI?

In an exceedingly roundabout way, making no mention whatsoever of any characters, situations or events from that movie? I do wonder.

In the meantime, I'm going to close this. I'll leave it up to the thread-starter either to rethink her topic and repost it in an appropriate forum, or to send me a PM request for moving this one.
