Much Ado About a Blow Job




Looks like all the talk about how unseemly it was for that nasty, shameful Ron Carlivati to literally walk out of One Life to Live‘s writer’s room and force the grand Robin Strasser to her knees before Tuc Watkins‘ big, orange…robe (I have the You Tube footage, call me!), placed the blame on the wrong provocateur. La Strasser revealed to TV Guide Canada‘s Nelson Branco, the idea for Dor-Dor to go down on David, was her’s.

TVG:  Recently, Dorian performed oral sex on David in an effort to test his loyalty to Buddhism. I loved the scene, but a few critics and fans were offended, claiming it contradicted Dorian’s character and classy nature. How did you feel about the scene?

RS: It was my idea! I know there was some fuss on the Internet, but it was all me. We had cryptic material in the script noting how Dorian was doing a variety of things that cause David to chant and moan. As we were blocking the scene, I thought why not have Dorian start massaging David at the top and continue all the way down. Since most of it happened on camera, we allowed the imagination of the viewer to kick in. It wasn’t spelled out. If someone didn’t see it, they didn’t see it. If someone did see it, they saw it. It was my idea. No one wrote the [oral sex] in the script. Everyone agreed that the [oral sex] made sense. Dorian desperately wanted to get his attention. Dorian and David are highly charged and adventurous people, especially sexually. There has not been a moment since they met that their sexual [lust and love] for each other didn’t factor into their relationship. Remember when they were at the Buchanan ranch after she found Clint kissing Nora? Immediately, David and Dorian cradled each other passionately and lovingly in bed. That scene spoke volumes about their relationship. So, Dorian performing on David was born from  a naughty twinkle in my eye. Since it was in the right context, I thought it worked. As for it being demeaning or she was too classy, talk to your partner about your sex life. I wanted to clear that up just in case Ron had taken any heat what I had done. I didn’t want someone unfairly blamed for my decision. Creatively, I thought Dorian had every reason to go in that direction.

Why Robin, you scandalous girl!  VOTE WITH YOUR REMOTE FOR ONE LIFE TO LIVE!

    I don’t know why, but the things people get bent out of shape over continues to shock me. I’m inferring that it was the act (or alluding) of oral sex itself that threw many fans – which in turn throws me. It would be interesting to know if Dorian had initiated vaginal intercourse with him instead, would it have caused the same amount of fuss? I’m thinking a big fat NO!

    Anyways, I want to thank you Jamey and the rest of DC.com for encouraging viewers, like me, to turn on OLTL. I watched for the very first time a few weeks ago and I am hooked. I almost forgot what a great soap looked like, except for when I watch Y&R of course!

    What a fabulous interview with a fabulous and beautiful actress. Dorian wants more and so do her fans. I hope she ends up on top -take that however you wish.

    What a great little article. I, too, think its hilarious that anybody would find Dorian going down on David unclassy, considering they have had a sexual relationship for years. I thought it was hilarious and exactly what a take-charge kind of woman like Dorian would do. Robin Strasser is faaaabulous! Love her!

    Well how about showing us David returning the favor?! LOL

    Hello! Alright! See I didn’t think she actually perform the act on him because the next scene shows them kissing on the mouth. I didn’t think that was proper etiquette.

    If memory serves me right, I seem to remember Reva going down on Josh in a barn…ICK (on the barn part LOL) and Phillip went down on Olivia. Was there a big deal about that? I wouldn’t know since I didn’t know how to turn a computer on at the time. I didn’t see anything about it in the mags. I really don’t see what all the fuss is about. It happens…

    Robin Strasser RULES! I thought that scene was great, funny and sexy and totally in character. Hey, it’s just glad to see someone actually getting some form of love on soaps these days.

    People got their panties in a twist over that, and yet others still think Jason Morgan on GH is a hero because he kills only the “bad” people. Why is sex always the taboo, and violence never even gets a batted eye these days?

    I gotta give Robin 1 million high fives. OLTL rocks lately and she has been part of that show for along time. I would have done the same thing…why?

    1. Just look at Tuc..why not. MmmmmMmmm
    2. She’s always been a cougar.
    3. Robin’s talent is why I watch the show.

    YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wel, in response to the above reference of Reva, she is the slut of Springfield (Even more of slut for doing her sister’s rapist). And I’ve come to believe Phillip and Olivia must be too graphic for YouTube. Why else aren’t they on there?

    This is the first I’ve heard of the blowjob being offensive. I’ve not watched for long, but I can feel confident that many of classy broads have given blowjobs. They are just better at cleaning up after and keeping it quiet. Isn’t a three diminsional Dorian better than a two diminsional one?

    I can think of much, much, much more offensive things that have taken place on soaps in the past year that have offered nothing. How about a replotting of a character we’ve known as someone totally different (they are still two diminsional, but instead of a woman abuser, they are a hero). Have I mentioned I find the Todd story a refreshing reality check to that one?
