What happened to Don?

Age: 30

Don works in advertising and often travels for business. To deal with the stress and loneliness of his work-life balance Don occasionally pays for sex with women. Don says it is much easier to pay for sex because he doesn’t have to think about what the woman wants…he can take out his aggression and stress on her. This power imbalance lends to the false belief that payment equals consent.

Don’s fiance’ suspects that he may be cheating on her on business trips. When she confronts him, he admits to her his transgressions and pleads with her to stay with him because he “can’t help it.” The fiance’ leaves and solidifies Don’s belief that he cannot have a normal committed relationship with women.
