koops Posted May 13, 2013 Posted May 13, 2013 Interesting. I have never gotten the feeling that Amy was all talk except for maybe when she is with the girls. In this episode she could not have been more clear that she wants more intimacy in their relationship. She may be inexperienced but it is a problem she seems prepared to tackle. I also do not think a shy girl practically begs her boyfriend to sleep in her bed, has no issue with the idea of being naked in front of him to be bathed, have her chest rubbed, or enjoys being spanked. I think he was prodding her because she was highly upset and he was asking her to do something rather awkward. I don't mean awkward from a sexual standpoint but awkward from a strange role playing standpoint. Sorry, by "validated the idea" I meant speculation we had been having a while ago about what's going to happen when Sheldon starts making his moves. One of the ideas was that she might act pretty much like she did in the role play. I didn't mean she's shy as a person, she's anything but shy. But I think a lot of her boldness in the theoretical sexual arena might have had to do with the fact that she knew Sheldon wouldn't budge, so she had to take whatever she could get (mostly nothing). I agree part of her shyness probably had to do with the fact that it was a rather bizarre approach to intimacy that she probably didn't see coming, but it just goes to show that when things really get serious she might not be that bold anymore. She does want more intimacy, and she's not going to back away when the time comes, but that doesn't mean she'll be confident about it. I just think this scene just gave a hint that there will be none of those amusing jumping of bones scenarios when things get serious. I think the writers used the bold version of Amy in the past because it was amusing, but it seems like when they want to get serious she is written very differently. The whole episode actually was set up around the idea that she doesn't like being touched by strangers, she's very sensitive about people meddling in her relationship and that, as much as she wants intimacy, she has zero actual experience and that it shows. It felt to me like they were resetting Amy to a less sexualized version. It doesn't look like the writers are going to play Shamy intimacy for laughs, so they are "toning her down" if you will.
