Oh ye gods. This isn't the first time I've run across this, but I can safely say it was one time too many. EEKKKK. Why, oh why, oh WHY do people write this???

Scenario: Some kind of pretty serious, or at least *very* *painful* and somewhat debilitating injury has occured. In this morning's story, it was a very bad, nearly dead injury necessitating six hours of surgery (huh, I accidentally typed sex hours...let's not go to what that says about me)... So SIX hours of surgery, a medically induced healing coma, and shortly after returning to fully conscious state and having the gorgeous never-before-seen lust object poke his head into the room, the patient immediately sprouts a woody.


PEOPLE--!!!! Get a little medical knowledge, or at least a little common sense before tapping fingers to the keyboard! The body can only do so much--!!

Word Wordy McWord. I'm reminded of the scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark where Marian is trying to put the moves on Indy (who has been through much less of a wringer than the character described above) and can't even kiss him because it *hurts* EVERYWHERE.

Good lord. Sometimes people are just too tired/sore/injured or just generally not in the mood!

Oh yes, I remember that scene! And yes, sometimes people *do* have headaches! :-)

There, there, dear. I know.
Like the ones where the person has a gunshot wound and is having sex a day later. Honestly...

Oh god, I'm channelling *Rodney*.

The ones that get me are a) waking up after YEARS in a coma and, gosh darn, their makeup is fresh! (and they can think, talk, and walk), and b) any concussion, with NO lingering effects (such as nausea, confusion, blurred vision, or depression).

Yup, plotdevice-itis, that's it.

LOLOL I must admit, I've not read any with a coma for years...and the comas I *have* read lately have had a surprisingly well-done wake-up, with lingering muscular issues to be dealt with. As for concussion, yeah, a few of those, (MORONS) but, surprisingly too, a few that have been well-done, with the blurred vision, the throwing up, etc.

Geez, gotta love realism. Nothing like a little vomit to make a girl happy.
