  • Truth in the sex craving from Jack.

    Marin reveals to the women at the Chieftian that since his return Jack has been initiating sex as much as four times a day. Some may find it interesting that there is an actual basis for this. When a person has to deal with death, there is a psychological condition called 'Affirmation of Life'. In simple terms, we humans crave to know when faced with death that we are still alive. It is not unusual for people to deal with the death of a loved one by indulging in carnal desires, be it sex or returning to a previous addiction like smoking or drugs. It is simply a way of proving to ourselves that we still live. I dealt with the death of my grandfather this way, actually. Watching the episode I was struck by the similarities between my own experience and Jacks behavior. Jack was not being 'horny' or 'selfish', he was dealing with a very base human condition. Anyways, kudos to the writers for the reality check.
