I'd guess any allure Salman Rushdie had due to his fame would be seriously offset by the fact that there's still a fatwa on him.

Maybe that ups his desirability among some.

Fame / badboyness is better than being a nobody in some cases (in terms of getting female attention I mean).

The woman this guy is with is pretty hot:

You think Rushdie is a bad boy? Sounds like you're on the fundamentalists' side. Shocked If I was a woman I'd be worried about getting caught in the crossfire and I'd probably end up complaining 'you never take me anywhere.' Women like to be seen in public with their 'catch', which would present problems in Rushdie's case.

There's a type of woman who'll be attracted to the guy with the problem, be it physical, or in Manson's case, mental. They're usually pretty homely, nurturing types, like the one in the pic. Or this one

But Rushdie lives in the Unites States you know greatest country in the world and all that Wink; not too many muslims living there, fortunately.

Here he is last week:

I’m trying to figure out what Rushdie’s secret is. So far I have it narrowed down to three things. It’s either the being a good novelist making him seem artsy and sophisticated, the accent which makes him seem exotic and debonair, or the fatwa against him which gives him bad-boy appeal without the self-destructive tendencies that usually come with that appeal.

With practice and diction lessons I think I could swing the accent and if I used my real name to post on here I could probably angle my way towards a fatwa against me. The world renowned novelist thing, however, could be difficult.

Wish me luck.

In the case of Manson, guys in their 80s would never be able to pull women in their 20s under normal circumstances.

You think that woman is homely? Hell no (considering what a loser Manson is). In the situation he's in, she's quite a catch.

Not my type, she looks anorexic. Rushdie certainly seems to have done OK for himself. Judging from those pictures he's gone through the whole United Nations. I didn't know he was living Stateside.

This is an incredibly asinine and bigoted comment.

He's safer in the U.S. than anywhere else, probably. Which is why he's been living there since 2000. I'm guessing that's at least a factor.

I didn't mean the U.S. is the greatest country in the world for everything- just security / protection. Edwardcatflap gave me sh*t earlier about praising the U.S., so that was a tongue in cheek joke.

The part that's not politically correct but is nonetheless true is, the greater the concentration of Muslims in any given area, the lower Rushdie's odds of survival.

I checked it out for a few seconds. It's a fictional account of the life of an escort?

The women in the OP are the guys' wives and girlfriends though.

In what circumstance would a 27 year old give a 77 year old the time of day? If he's wealthy. (Both rich and famous is even better.)
