This has to be the biggest turnoff. No doubt at first she loved the idea of being married to a powerful, rich man. Now the reality has set in that he's really a needy old woman, and the only idea she likes is the $$$ at the end of this.
Interesting question. If he's actually straight (and that's a might big if), I'd bet he's a warm, kind lover. Probably takes his time. Lots of kissing and touching. I can't imagine he'd perform oral, though. I think he's grossed out by vaginas (which is why he wears rubbers). Wish I hadn't watched that Requiem for a Dream clip. That movie always gives me the blues.
i don't even want to think about it but here goes...he's probably very good technically and knows how to hit the right spots. he's probably very "giving" and romantic.
but the problem (IMO)is everything that happens before and after sex. he's a very needy person. i wouldn't be surprised if he imposes himself on beth when they're just sitting around and reading or drinking coffee...he probably stares at her (saying to himself how beautiful she is and that she belongs to him). he treats her like a thing. he smothers her. he wants to be with her all the time but gives her a little freedom. and i also think howard is the one who begs her to let him photograph her.
i feel sorry for her...she should get the hell out of that marriage, take the 5 or 10 million he'd offer her and make a life for herself somewhere else.
i'm putting myself in her place...and thinking about it makes me feel as if i can't breathe.
