Dean was a literal Born again Virgin after he came back from hell with a new body.

Besides, assginity is a thing.

Re: Supernatural Season 9 (Spoilers)

A fun little purity ring/sex comedy indeed. The show has always been good at casting female guests. They even got an attractive church lady.

I loved it when Dean found out about the ex-porn star, whom he ended up sleeping with. Lucky bastard.
I didn't think they'd find a way to go there, but they did. I'm reading the IMDb boards and some people aren't too happy with the episode. One thought that the show has become all about sex and another thought that what Dean did was a bit reckless and douchey because he put the girl above the mission and tried to take advantage of someone who was trying to reform their life. Sounds like the gist of these arguments is that even the writers can get carried away when it comes to sex and in doing so, end up not writing it properly. I like to see what people think after episodes like these, especially as someone who was more taken by Susie Abromeit's hotness and Dean's incredible luck.

And it was a bit of an overshare when he told the group of virgin/neo-virgin women about the whole sexual experience.
I liked their reactions. A lot of truth in that.

I think it is a stretch to say you can be taking advantage of anyone over, say, 20, who is sober.

Re: Supernatural Season 9 (Spoilers)

I have no complaints about what Dean did. It might not have been the nicest thing to do, but it wasn't wrong either. She was an adult and capable of making her own decisions.

Have the people on IMDb forgotten that Dean kind of is reckless and douchey? He's no angel (the metaphorical kind, of course ), this incident was very much in-character for him.

Re: Supernatural Season 9 (Spoilers)

I find it unrealistic.

To my mind, expornstars have used up their quota of meaningless sex.

She should have statistically been numb and vacant to anything approaching a com'on.

Sure Dean is movie star handsome but he's also over 30 and living in his car.

Maybe it was his story in group, and she's really into creative types?

The first bloke she's seen in a year with an IQ over 80?

Maybe the porn industry isn't the meat grinder it used to be, or maybe the Church spent a long time putting her back together again, but I just didn't buy that they would hook up like that when this Winchester if Hemingway played the drums and not a typewriter.

^^ She obviously got into porn because she liked sex a lot. She got guilted out of it, but she missed it.

Hipsters. They think that women are weak and at the mercy of men, and they call it feminism.

Re: Supernatural Season 9 (Spoilers)

As a pagan, i was appalled by this episode. Typical propaganda against us. I did not like the episode at all. Our Gods and Goddesses are important and scared to us. You may not believe but we do.

On a lighter note, the female actor who portrayed Vesta looked exactly like a Roman Goddess should look, especially during the two church scenes.

As opposed to the way they've treated the Christian religion?

I've noticed a trend in that they portray anything supernatural with negative connotations.

That was Lindy Booth. She played Sydney Fox's assistant on Relic Hunter.

A lot of shows could work Jesus into their mythology, like Stargate and this show, but don't.

They've had God, angels, demons, and even saints.

Re: Supernatural Season 9 (Spoilers)

I thought this episode was fun.
As for Dean and the incident with the ex-pornstar, who's name I've forgotten, I really had no problem with it. She seemed perfectly willing, so I don't really see it as having taken advantage of her.
