A Very Guilty Narcissist


Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty of sexual assault. Weinstein, 67, was convicted in New York City of third-degree rape and first-degree criminal sexual act.

But he was cleared of the most serious count of predatory sexual assault. He faces up to 25 years in prison.

He still faces charges in Los Angeles of assaulting two women in 2013.

At least 80 women had accused him of sexual misconduct stretching back decades, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Uma Thurman and Salma Hayek.

An update on Weinstein following his trial will follow. In the meantime, you can revisit an analysis below about him below which was written at the outset of the allegations and ahead of the curve as to demonstrating very clearly what he is, something underlined and emphasised by his conviction and behaviour during the trial.

You cannot have failed to notice the slew of accusations against Weinstein ranging from inappropriate attempts at engaging in sexual interaction with women through to sexual assaults and rape.  So far, more than thirty accusers have come forward although undoubtedly that number is set to rise.

Weinstein has apparently fled LA by private jet to the US $ 40 000 a month The Meadows rehab facility in Arizona. The mainstream media has bandied around phrases referring to him seeking treatment for sex addiction, that he is a sexual predator, he has abused his considerable power as a Hollywood producer but as ever one word is consistently missing – narcissist.

So, what are his accusers saying about him and how does this link to him being a narcissist? The analysis is based on what the accusers are stating as being true (and we will come to more of that in due course).

The French actress Lea Seydoux stated :-

“We were talking on the sofa when he suddenly jumped on me and tried to kiss me.

“I had to defend myself. He’s big and fat, so I had to be forceful to resist him. I left his room, thoroughly disgusted.

“I wasn’t afraid of him, though. Because I knew what kind of man he was all along.”

This behaviour shows a sense of entitlement and no regard for boundaries. He has no empathy for how a young woman would feel suddenly being treated in this manner.

The American actress, Heather Graham alleges he tried to force himself on her and told her his wife would have been fine with it.

“He could sleep with whomever he wanted when he was out of town. I walked out of the meeting feeling uneasy.

“There was no explicit mention that to star in one of those films I had to sleep with him, but the subtext was there.”

Once more there is a huge sense of entitlement not only with Ms Graham, but also with the perception that he could sleep with whomever he wanted. Yet again there is a failure to observe boundaries and moreover a lack of accountability. Not only does he not see or care that there might be a repercussion for such an unwanted advance, he goes further and states that his wife would have been fine with it. Note also the suggestion of subtext referred to by Ms Graham, which evidences the plausible deniability which we so often engage in. Had Ms Graham complained at the time, Weinstein would have course denied the accusation pointing out it was just the word of some crazed, wannabe young actress. Undoubtedly he would then have gone on to ruin her career, demonstrating the desire to exert control over an appliance and the application of punishment since Ms Graham would be painted ‘black’ for her treachery, even though Weinstein is the one in the wrong.

Model and actress Zoe Brock says she was brought back to Weinstein’s hotel room under false pretences in the south of France in 1997. It isn’t clear whether it was Weinstein or another who applied the false pretences, but either way, this is a further indicator of the narcissist at work. Lies have been told, manipulation has been applied and has either been done by Weinstein himself or through a Lieutenant on his behalf.

Brock explained that Weinstein emerged naked from another part of the suite and asked for a massage – once again no boundary recognition and a sense of entitlement, plus the usual lack of empathy for the individual placed in this situation.

“I did not want to do that and he asked if he could give me a massage… I didn’t know what to do and I felt that letting him maybe touch me a little bit might placate him enough to get me out of there somehow.”

Before long, Ms Brock fled into the bathroom. He banged on the door with his fists before eventually retreating, putting on a dressing gown and starting to cry.

This last paragraph provides us with further insight into Weinstein’s narcissism. When Brock fled, that was an act which wounded Weinstein. Her removing herself from him signalled to him that he was not important, that his control was not complete and he was wounded. His initial response was one of ignited fury as he banged on the door with his fists but this clearly drew no response from Ms Brock and more importantly no fuel and also wounded Weinstein further. He was forced to retreat and with his fuel levels being depleted by the wounding and the lack of additional fuelling appliances. Thus, withdrawal was his only option. Unsettled by his plummeting fuel levels and the potential for further wounding, his self-defence mechanism shifted and he began to cry. He was crying for himself as a consequence of the construct now starting to fall apart and also as a pity play in the hope that this would lure Ms Brock into being sympathetic and thus provide fuel to him.

Italian actress and director Asia Argento’s first dealing with Weinstein’s company Miramax was when she appeared in their crime drama B Monkey. She says she was left alone with him in a hotel room on the French Riviera after being told she was going to a Miramax party. Argento says she reluctantly agreed to give him a massage, but he then raped her.

Weinstein “terrified me, and he was so big”, she said. “It wouldn’t stop. It was a nightmare.”

“I know he has crushed a lot of people before. That’s why this story – in my case, it’s 20 years old, some of them are old – has never come out.”

Argento has not spoken out until now, saying she feared it would ruin her career to do so.

Once again there is the sense of entitlement, the lack of boundary recognition, the lack of empathy, the manipulation, the lies about the true intention and the threat of repercussion. Note that Ms Argento refers to being aware that he has crushed a lot of people before, therefore not only has this behaviour been systematic (further supported by the many revelations which are now coming forward) but it also exhibits the control that Weinstein exerted over people and as you know, control over everything is something we must have.

Mira Sorvino appeared in several of Weinstein’s films and has said that he sexually harassed her and tried to pressure her into having a physical relationship.

She was in a hotel room with him at the Toronto International Film Festival in 1995. Ms Sorvino explained that :-

“He started massaging my shoulders, which made me very uncomfortable, and then tried to get more physical, sort of chasing me around.”

Weeks later, she alleges he turned up to her apartment under the guise of having marketing ideas for the film.

“I opened the door terrified, brandishing my 20-pound Chihuahua mix in front of me, as though that would do any good.”

She told Weinstein her new boyfriend was on the way round, after which he apparently became dejected and left.

Once more there is the sense of entitlement, lack of boundary recognition, absence of empathy for how the victim of his behaviour would feel, a lack of accountability for his actions, manipulation and lying. Ms Sorvino’s comment about her new boyfriend being on his way around wounded Weinstein as not only was she rejecting him, she preferred somebody else. A Greater Narcissist, whilst wounded by such a comment would have kept his ignited fury in check and pressed on regardless, confident in his ability to charm and coerce to achieve the desired outcome. Weinstein, however, was wounded and he clearly anticipated further wounding. His dejection was an attempt to gain sympathy from Ms Sorvino, to gain fuel to address his wounding, but it failed and thus once again he was forced to withdraw.

The scale of the allegations covers not just actresses but those who worked in the various echelons of his company.

Various workers at the Weinstein film company have reported their unpleasant experiences dealing with Weinstein and this includes Emily Nestor who has a temporary front desk assistant who explained she had to refuse the advances of Weinstein on at least a dozen occasions. This evidences his sense of omnipotence and power, everybody is available to him and underlines his grandiosity – he can pick whoever he wants and they had better give him what he wants otherwise he would punish them.

Weinstein is clearly of the somatic cadre as his modus operandi to gaining fuel and extending control over appliances is through sexual overtures. Of course, this will be dressed up as him being a sex addict but it misses the fundamental point. Yes, he is an addict but he is addicted to fuel (just as all of our kind are) but he uses sex as a major method of gaining this fuel. Of course Weinstein will have sucked up the fuel at the lavish parties he threw, the glamorous ceremonies he attended, revelling in the applause and adulation from tertiary sources and Non Intimate Secondary Sources (friends, family and colleagues) but he wanted the more potent fuel from those he sought to make his Intimate Partner Secondary Sources. He had his wife as the Intimate Partner Primary Source but through these various acts of infidelity she was being devalued and we do not know what other behaviour she has had to endure – perhaps that will emerge over time.

The money, glamour, parties, beautiful people etc all fit within Weinstein belonging to the somatic cadre. He is not a physically attractive man however, overweight, out of shape, small piggy eyes and a face that would not look lost on the loser of a boxing bout but of course to certain somatic these physical shortcomings are not a problem. Firstly, the delusional nature of his narcissism will have told him that he was an adonis and irresistible to these people and as more and more victims piled up, this reinforced his notion of him being such a magnet for women. Secondly, he had his manipulative nature and the power of making or breaking people’s careers as a hugely influential force to ensure that he would achieve his aims most of the time. One does not have to have the looks of Brad Pitt to be of the somatic cadre.

So, the evidence from his accusers (and there is plenty more along similar lines to that detailed above) all supports that he is a narcissist. But what does Mr Weinstein have to say at this early stage to these allegations?

First of all, let us turn to the statement that has been issued on his behalf :-

Weinstein’s spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister issued a statement in response to the allegations of sexual harassment and assault. She stated,

“Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein,” she said. “Mr Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.

“Mr Weinstein obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual. Mr Weinstein has begun counselling, has listened to the community and is pursuing a better path.”

What does this tell us? Most telling is the admission that Mr Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual. This is noteworthy for two matters. Firstly, he is not denying the relationships took place, thus it is highly likely that he is admitting to acts of infidelity with regard to one or both of his two marriages. This evidences a lack of empathy for the ex-spouse and soon to be ex-spouse. It also shows once more his sense of entitlement. Secondly, an uninformed reader might see the use of the word ‘believes’ and think ‘oh sure he thought they were consensual’ with a shaken head of disbelief, but here is the rub, Weinstein will, from his narcissistic perspective believed that they were consensual because he is entitled to anything he wants, no means yes and he has to control everything. Nobody refuses him.

His spokesperson naturally denied any suggestion of criminality on his part and as Mandy Rice-Davies stated in the Profumo Affair, “well he would say that, wouldn’t he?” but not only is this careful management by his advisors, Weinstein will believe he has done nothing wrong because he is unaccountable in his world.

The final sentence is typical deflection and very much in the mould of But I Can Change  as people are invited to consider him to be a lost and damaged soul who needs guidance and therapy. It is just facade management.

However, this is what the carefully stage-managed spokesperson has said on his behalf, how has Mr Weinstein responded since the explosion of these revelations?

When leaving his daughter’s home to get into a vehicle to whisk him away, presumably to the waiting private jet, he was reported as stating

“And you know I’ve always been loyal to you guys, not like those fucking pricks who treat you like shit. I’ve been the good guy,”

This sentence packs so much of his narcissism in, it is hugely interesting.

  1. I have always been loyal to you guys – he is convinced he is a decent person and is also seeking sympathy with this comment, further evidence of his delusions thinking and his bid for fuel;
  2. Not like those ‘fucking pricks’ who treat you like shit – deflection by lashing out at other individuals, provocation towards the unnamed ‘pricks’;
  3. Sense of victimhood – I am the decent fellow here who has always been good to you lot and look at how I am being treated now
  4. ‘I’ve been the good guy’ – as ever the facade fights to remain in place and the obsession with being seen as a decent person continues
  5. Sense of entitlement – I have been loyal to you and now in my hour of need you had better support me;
  6. Sense of treachery – referring to how he is being vilified.

The picture accompanying this article shows Weinstein giving the finger on both hands as he attends his lawyer’s office. Hardly the behaviour of a contrite individual who “has listened to the community and is pursuing a better path.” No, at this juncture this was a narcissist who was fuelled (he had several supporters with him when the picture was taken) and when confronted no doubt by a press pack this was Challenge Fuel, so Weinstein feeling fuelled and confident, but needing to assert his perceived superiority engaged in a provocative act to draw more fuel from those observing and to assert his supposed superiority.

Whilst at his daughter’s house she apparently telephoned the police concerned that her father was suicidal. The repeated wounding he felt as allegation after allegation landed against him, from people he regarded as loyal and under his control, was smashing holes in his construct and making him feel desperate, like his world was literally caving in on him. Add to this the condemnation from other members of the industry, the fact that BAFTA has suspended his membership and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was considering his role and condemned his behaviour, add Mr Weinstein was facing massive wounds.  Rather ironically, even Hillary Clinton stated that the funds Weinstein had donated to her presidential campaign would be donated to a charity instead. Once again, members of the brethren only look out for themselves.

Little wonder that he felt suicidal and was described as being in meltdown. Starved of fuel as hitherto reliable appliances turned off the provision of fuel as they turned their backs on him, he was also being repeatedly wounded, no wonder he commented

‘Guys, I’m not doing OK but I’m trying. I gotta get help. I’m hanging in, I’m trying my best.’

For once a statement of honesty in terms of him not doing okay, but once again his narcissistic self-defence mechanism kicks in as he refers to needing to get help, that he is “hanging in” (brave little soldier eh?) and he was “trying his best” so of course, feel sorry for the man, give him a break, he has realised he has made mistakes and is going to improve himself.

No he is not.

It is telling that when Weinstein met with executives of the film company before he was dismissed, he stated he wanted to go into heavy therapy and counselling in order to make a comeback. That is what matters to Weinstein ; himself. He is not going into therapy to be a better person, he is doing it because he has enough awareness (and no doubt suitably advised) that it is what he ought to do. He is doing it as facade management. He is doing it in order to draw fuel as part of a massive Pity Play, but most of all he is only doing it in the hope that he can stage a comeback. That is what is central to this current behaviour.

The executives were not persuaded and refused his request.

There is so much material that has emerged and is emerging to support the fact that Weinstein is one of us that it merits a book. However, the most damning indictment against him and one which reinforces what he is, is his utter lack of empathy.

Has he said sorry? Has he apologised? Has he been contrite?


At the time I confirmed that Harvey Weinstein was A Very Hollywood Narcissist. That has now been lost. He is just A Very Guilty Narcissist.

    I received a notification from my ID Go App (Investigation Discovery) and joy! joy! it was a documentary on good ol’ HW. I’ve started watching. I wanted to let y’all know in case anybody wanted to watch. So far, really good!

    Oh, and K…thanks for bringing up that dark day that I had the audacity to call our HG a pretty boy. (I meant it as a compliment, I swear!) Oh how misguided I was. Can we erase that day in the life of MB?

      You crack me up! You are such an empath. I am sorry I brought that dark, dark day up! I know you meant it as a compliment …if only you could compartmentalize then life would be so much easier for you.

      1. MB says:

        Haha K, it’s all good. I was *mostly* kidding around. You almost had me convinced that my favorite song of all time was about narcissism. I really am pretty good at stuffing which is almost as good as compartmentalizing. I had honestly consigned this to the recesses. I didn’t review the thread, it was mortifying enough the first time! Ha ha. We’ve had some good times on Narcsite and you and HG have the annals to prove it!

  2. wildviolet22 says:

    This whole situation with him- reminds me of some interviews I watched with convicted sex offenders, including serial rapists, being asked if rape was about power. Some of them were kind chuckling at that. Basically what they said the power was a means to an end- but bottom line they got off on the non consensual sex. So basically they said it was about both power and sex (which makes more sense to me, than when people say it’s not about the sex, since that seems to be their goal- the rape being about power theory came from a second wave feminist in the 70s anyways, and not from an actual rapist, and they would know best about how they think and their own motivations).

    But yeah, basically he didn’t care if it was consensual or if anyone was attracted to him, he must have really been getting off on how uncomfortable and disgusted he was making people feel. Also I saw he never made it through The Meadows program, I was wondering how that was going to go. That place is rather famous for love and sex addiction treatment, but I guess with people like him, he doesn’t care about him victims so the info is not going to sink in :/.

    1. NarcAngel says:

      I view non consensual sex absolutely as being about power. The exertion of power and control to feed the need of the rapist as being the driver. Getting off (and many don’t or can’t) as just a secondary result of the first when it does happen. If it wasn’t about power over someone else it wouldn’t need to be non consensual. This is evidenced in many cases by what the rapist says/does during the course of the assault. Of course they would chuckle and spew forth whatever comes to their tiny brains (exerting control unconsciously). Most rapists (or perhaps all) being unaware of what they are (narcs). They would not want to admit to feeling powerless so focus on the pleasure as being the goal.

      Weinstein would absolutely have been getting off on how uncomfortable and disgusted he was making them feel. The exertion of POWER over another is the goal – not ejaculation (which, again, may or may not result but is never the driver).

      The info at The Meadows will not sink in to him (or in my view – to anyone there) because sex addiction is a fallacy. It’s a convenient vehicle to blame-shift the behaviours to. “Poor me. I am a sex addict”. No – you’re a narcissist and a predator. You will not and cannot change. But places like The Meadows make a shit ton of money exploiting that by offering excuses for the behaviour and giving people hope where there is none.

      1. wildviolet22 says:

        NA- yes I agree with with you, it is about power. But I do think it’s both- power and sex. I’m not a rapist, so I can’t get into that head space, but to me it makes sense that it would be about both of those things (because unfortunately it is- and it doesn’t make sense to me when people leave the sex part out of it).

        I remember hearing about the Meadows in the 90s, when Pia Mellody (who wrote all of those books about love addiction) and Patrick Carnes (famous for the book The Betrayal Bond, and his work with sex addicts, specifically ) were associated with them. Not sure if they still are, or how successful their treatment programs are these days. I think they were helpful, and sort of pioneers in the area when they first started for people with the obsessive / love addiction type behaviors.

        (I agree about narcissists, and personally don’t think that people who have predatory type behaviors can change either).

        1. NarcAngel says:

          Have you read HG’s book Sex? It’s an eye opening must read that may affect your current view.

          1. wildviolet22 says:

            NA- I have not. But I was in my my own Harvey Weinstein situation years ago (in a martial arts system), and worked for a few years in a sex offender program (with both child sexual predators, and those who targeted adults). I remember when I was younger I recall going with the “it’s about power” mindset, but as I got older, I realized that it’s much, more complex than that (which I suppose, which issues aren’t), especially after working with sex offenders myself, and getting my own first hand experience in human nature, and how people are, going through what I went through with the predatory creep in the martial arts system. What was most helpful to me at the time, was Marc MacYoung’s blog (no nonsense self defense- I still keep myself updated on his take on things). Uncomfortable to read, some of that stuff, much how reading some of the articles here are. But he really gets into the criminal mindset, and how criminal and predatory people, including rapists, think.

            I do hear what you’re saying about sometimes people might not realize their own motivations, but I do believe if you look at behavior through the lenses of the people doing it, there patterns, and some really uncomfortable truths in there.

            I’ll check out “Sex”, thank you. There is a lot of material here I need to get through, that one mentioned a lot in the comments, so I bet it’s a good one.

  3. Renarde says:

    I have many questions.

    1 – Why was there scarring on his lower torso?

    2 – Did he really have no testicles?

    3 – If his penis was misshapen to the extent it look like a vagina (and I mean what does that even look like?), then the mind boggles.

    One woman said ‘He looked like he was intersex’.

    So possibly a true hemaphrodite?

    But the pictures show he is clearly a very rugged looking man. From youth to where he is now.

    I think we will be talking about Weinstein for years. Expect a film. Oh the irony!

    1. lisk says:

      Perhaps a circumcision gone wrong?

      1. Renarde says:


        Intresting! I hadn’t considered that.

        1. Violetta says:

          I thought he might have hypospadia (urethra in the wrong place). The farther up the penis it is, the more difficult it is to fix.

          There are reports that both Hitler and artist Walter Sickert had the condition. Patricia Cornwell suspected Sickert of being Jack the Ripper, a theory that has been discredited by many people, but he was certainly fascinated with the Ripper’s crimes. In those days, any treatment would have been horribly painful as well as terrifying. The utter helplessness would be a part of the recipe for Narcissism, particularly if the parents made no effort to.comfort or explain.

          I’d be curious to know what the hell happened to Weinstein. Many people in show business want sex in exchange for career advancement, but very few use actual physical force.

          1. Renarde says:


            I had completely forgotten about Sickert. I had read all of those things too. Like you I also believe Cornwell’s theories were totally pie in the sky. She used her money to destroy works of art.

            Whatever Sickert was, he was not the Ripper. But I take your point on hyposadia. I get that.

            I’m a intensely curious as well. Like you, being physical with the women, intimidation must be key. It’s very unusual.

            Might I proffer a diagnosis? Upper Lesser. Somatic. Psycopath? Possibly due to upbringing. Scarring on torso is key. Was he very seriously physically assaulted whilst a child?

            What say you?

          2. Violetta says:

            Pictures of him as a kid with his brother look quite average. He might need to lose a little weight, but he’s not morbidly obese.

            The face, now…. Did he get the crap beat out of him every day after school? Cystic acne as an adolescent? Both?

            At some point he stopped even bothering or never started. The guy had money: it would have been easy to hire a personal trainer and get a few nip-and-tucks. He figured that was his hapless performers’ problem. He didn’t even have younger pretensions to being a playboy, as Trump had. People laugh at Trump’s combover, but it’s actually a healthy sign he knows he should at least try to look good (although it’s delusional for him to suppose he’s succeeded). Weinstein either despises himself too utterly to make such an effort, or he despises his victims too much to think they deserve one. Ugly, fat, and stinky: that’ll teach them.

  4. Chris says:

    He almost sounds like he is a covert narcissist or a covert narcissist who switches between being a covert narcissist and grandiose narcissist in certain occasions.

    But a covert narcissist would cry and try to get sympathy as he did especially if it was the only way he thought he could progress his agenda. Covert narcissist will often try to make themselves seem like the one who’s been most harmed by something.

    Covert narcs can often be the most dangerous types of narcs.

  5. DrHouse says:

    Well written, I even sense some humanity in your writing, after all I feel there is goodness in you, but it’s hidden deep.

  6. SMH says:

    HG, I watched a documentary about Weinstein and people who knew him in his youth said that he thought/knew he was unattractive. Was he really delusional about his attractiveness? Or was he instead what the rest of us would call ‘insecure’?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      He was delusional.

      1. Alexissmith2016 says:

        So he was good looking but couldn’t see it? Or am I misinterpreting?

        HG, David Mitchell has dead eyes but seems anxious. Is he an N?

        1. HG Tudor says:

          I have not analysed him.

          1. Alexissmith2016 says:

            Hate that answer!

          2. HG Tudor says:

            Tough, deal with it.

          3. “Tough, deal with it.”

            I like that one though…mmm

        2. Renarde says:


          He seems a bit ‘ferrety’ to me. Bit of a whiner, I’d say. Clever and can be funny but in an annoying way..

          His wife is far more interesting. Poker player and professional ‘smug git’ IMHO. Way too up herself. Always thought he was punching outside his league. Or I have perhaps got that the wrong way around?

          1. Thanks Renarde, I don’t find him attractive but I think that is what is meant? he is (or at least was) but he didn’t see it. Very interesting.

            I know absolutely nothing of him other than what HG has written. Sometimes even I wonder if I live out in the wilderness somewhere.

            I don’t think I’d like his wife based on how you describer her. Just googled her and no I don’t. I’m guessing it’s a case of two Ns colliding.

          2. Renarde says:

            Well you know what they say? Saves ruining another couple!

      2. SMH says:

        Hmmm. OK but I don’t think he was looking in the mirror thinking about how hot he was. It was about power, as rape is, not about his good looks.

  7. Dorion says:

    One of the most important things I’ve learned about narcissists on this blog is how they believe their lies and delusions. I used to think someone had to have a severe mental illness such as psychosis to believe those things, but clearly not. In this example, looking at this guy and his behavior, anyone with a realistic perception and intact sense of self would see he is not someone so many women will desire and that most women would not want any physical contact with him, especially given how he approached them. The fact someone can believe the contrary of all the clear evidence is always incredible for me… these people truly live in an alternate universe. Luckily some get locked up so they will stop pulling others into their rotten world. This guy is truly gross.

    1. SMH says:

      I agree he is gross, Dorion, but he had an absolutely drop dead gorgeous wife, with whom he has a few children, so he obviously is not unattractive to everyone. I think from her perspective, it was a real and solid marriage.

      1. NarcAngel says:

        Didn’t Weinstein front the money for his wife to start her fashion business Marchesa? There’s some incentive.

          Indeed, his offer to model somehow did not have the same attraction, NA.

            Yes but she still had to sleep with him, and obv more than once. He must have a fantastic personality too 🙂

          2. E. B. says:

            We do not know her at all. Some women do find their ugly spouses disgusting. She did not have to sleep with him to get pregnant.

          3. Dorion says:

            I think it is very rare that a human interested in mating, no matter how unattractive in popular terms, cannot find anyone who would sleep with them or even live with them. And it is not rare at all that ugly but powerful, wealthy etc men have gorgeous female companions. Interestingly, the opposite is not that common, it is certainly more about power and less so about pleasure seeking. I personally do believe sex addiction is a real thing, but if someone is truly seeking sexual pleasure and satisfaction primarily, why would they develop behaviors that are much less likely to give it to them? I also think many true sex addicts look for porn/excessive masturbation and prostitutes more often than force people, because then the pleasure is easy and guaranteed, plus they can hide the addiction.

            If he indeed has those physical conditions, that alone could explain why he became the monster he is, including why he would prefer forced sex over consensual. A man with this rugged, very masculine exterior but defective sexual function…

    The original article was written in 2017 and has withstood the test of time as have all of the “A Very” series. A testament to the accuracy and the value of this information.

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Thank you MB.

  9. Lorelei says:

    Interesting how he’s somatic and appears as he does—the magical thinking you’ve discussed. He’s absolutely gross.

  10. BonnieLou says:

    Great article HG. I was wondering when he would come under the Tudorscope. The pity play Zimmer frame had me spitting feathers!😂Hope he rots behind bars til the end of his days!

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Thank you

  11. Bibi says:

    Interesting that following his verdict, he is complaining of ‘chest pains’ and needs to go to the hospital. Cue the sad violin.

    1. Violetta says:

      Unfortunately, he’s too ugly to get the Welcome Wagon he deserves in Rikers, or he’d be having sphincter pains.

      1. Renarde says:

        Ha ha! Someone else in the DM comments also said that. Fair made me chortle!

        Captain grammar to the rescue.

  13. mcthriver says:

    Perfectly analysed HG 👏🏼

    I hope he spends the rest of his days behind bars.

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Thank you

  14. lisk says:

    I’m surprised by the verdict. I didn’t think he’d get convicted.

    1. Violetta says:

      His lawyers will try to appeal, but yes: I’m also pleasantly surprised that he wasn’t able to buy his way out.

      Thank you

    Well. I, for one am doing a happy dance tonight that this MONSTER is behind bars. Thank you for reporting this article and refreshing ny memory.

    The ‘casting couch’ (male and female) has always been one of the most loathsome aspects to Hollywood. Going right back into its early days. Has Tinseltown now decided to stop it? Somehow, I doubt it.

    Recently, when watching films, I shudder when Weinstein’s name comes up at the start.

    You raise a very intresting point about the reality of how external observers percieve the facade and how the Somatic perceives it. I’ve observed this in a Lesser Somatic. He said he could get women but he was an absolute state. Really was. So when he said he had – didnt believe him. But it was ACTUALLY true! So it was the manipulations and Hoovers which were binding the source to him. Which then in his mind must have meant, as you say, that he thinks he is an Adonis.

    So heres a question. Can narcs Gaslight themselves wrt looks?

    Very good stuff, HG. Very.
