THE SEX FILES: The Eye Of The Storm…y Daniels?

One wonders, if one is like me, over the liaisons Stormy Daniels might reveal in her soon-to-be-published tell-all Full Disclosure. Ever since the ‘did-she-didn’t-she’ and ‘how-much-and-how-might-she-have-been-paid-off’ brouhaha the ex-porn star got into with our newest Pres., many have been wondering who else Stephanie Clifford might have hidden in her metaphorical closet.

In fact, the latest reveal in Stormy’s interesting encounters from her book is her meeting Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger the very night after her supposed canoodle with ‘the Donald.’ Stormy’s claim is that Roethlisberger was just as anxious to make her acquaintance as Trump, and when gently rebuked by the lady after walking her to her hotel room door, the Q.B. stuck around repeatedly knocking, hoping to be let in to her playing field. Daniels claims the football star’s behavior scared her.

In light of what comes out all the time in the classic she said/he said scenario, and not to jump to any conclusions or assumptions, and even allowing for #MeToo, despite how much I might like or dislike somebody accused, I am always reminded of that line in the Dire Straits’ song “Industrial Disease.” It goes, “Two men say they’re Jesus, one of them must be wrong.” In any of these instances somebody is simply telling the truth or what they perceive as the truth or they are lying. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.

If they are telling the truth and some illegal act has been committed, then that’s one thing. If they are telling the truth and an immoral act (or what the majority of society feels is an immoral act, worthy of castigation) has been committed, that’s another thing. If they are lying, then why they are lying might be worth exploring. Certainly for people actually victimized or those whose reputations are sullied by a lie, these are no small points. But beyond all this, what two (or more) peeps get into, is really their business, as far as I am concerned (please note, before you get all righteous indignation on my ass, I did preface this with…if the something that happened was illegal or even immoral that is a different thing then my ‘their business’ axiom; man these days you really have to cover your ass, don’t ya?)

I have no idea what, if any, true conclusion any of us will come to with the publication of Full Disclosure. I do know that we will continue to be interested in stories such as these, be it to tickle our prurient interests, to prove to ourselves that our assumptions about supposed victims and perpetrators are correct, to either mock or bolster a movement or to make us feel better or worse about our own actions in some way. In the end though, sex sells, no matter who is peddling it and who is involved and the more celebrity mixed deep into it all, from sports stars to famous comedians to even Presidents, the richer the vein.

Regardless of your view, Full Disclosure hits shelves out Oct 2nd.
