Love in Star Trek
This is not a Star Trek post (everything else)
Touching erogenous zones doesn’t always result in sexual stimulation. Maybe he had spent so long around Humans it was no longer an issue?
I’ve always sort of assumed it’s like guys getting contact-friction from the pants - might do something for you or your brain might ignore the stimulation because you know it’s not the right time. Otherwise I imagine it would just be irksome to do mundane tasks.
That makes a lot of sense. They’re probably able to shield/ignore it, or just out-logic it.
I’ve never thought about that before! I think it’s fanon that has made Vulcan hands into erogenous zones (or something that came after TOS). Certainly hands being used for kissing is canon; we see it in Enterprise Incident when Spock got to make out with the hot Romulan Commander. Spock’s non mind-meld version of touch telepathy is documented if you accept Animated Series as canon (I don’t remember it coming up in TOS, except maybe when he’s voodoo-ing the wall that one time
and Jim kinda gets off on it?, because that isn’t really a meld?). I can definitely get on board with the idea of sensitive hands, though, especially when you tack on the Vulcan greeting in lieu of a handshake.
So assuming we accept the idea that Vulcan hands are sensitive, to the point of being erogenous zones, I think you could argue that acts like clapping might be an issue. Imagine the first time a Vulcan saw a human clapping! He probably thought the guy was jerking off in public. Or maybe it’s considered rude? I think you could go any way with this.
Anyone have thoughts?
I’ve had this sitting on my drive for months & figured I’d plop a few excerpts here for posterity. Not sure if I’ll ever develop this into anything.
I have become acquainted with an elder version of Spock. He spoke fondly of the Captain Kirk from his universe. He used the word “destiny” and smiled on three occasions. I am certain he did not achieve kolinahr.
I grow concerned about my son living on Earth.
The elder version of my son came to my home for his evening meal and did not remove his hand from the pendant at his neck. It is illogical to favor a trinket as he does. He spoke of Captain Kirk fourteen times within two hours, even calling him by his first name, “Jim.” He used the word “friend” to describe their relationship.
Oddly, I found myself thinking of Amanda.
This evening, the elder Spock dined at my home with Spock and Captain Kirk. He spent much of the evening in Captain Kirk’s presence. Spock appeared affronted by this. I witnessed the elder Spock place a hand on Captain Kirk’s arm eight times and once raise a hand to Kirk’s temple. I am certain Earth is not a good influence.
Unrelated and not worthy of mention except for it being an anomaly, Spock is suffering from throat irritation and broke two water goblets in the course of the evening.
