that's an interesting idea - that the glasses show him the price he expects, not what she really might expect. he (or the glasses) are expecting, from her looks, that she is some high-maintenance demanding type female, because someone who looks like her can demand a "high-end" male - and the tag is slick's/sleaze's/the glasses' definition of a high-end male.

Exactly. But those are all biases, there's nothing stopping Slick from actually talking to her and finding out who she really is. Sometimes I wear a really fancy coat, sometimes I wear a ratty rock shirt but I still appreciate someone trying to get to know me over a friendly conversation.

It makes sense they would tell Slick other people's value in relation to him, since it isn't actually part of that person's intrinsic worth. I wonder if Slick looks at himself, what will his price tag be?

I bet that devil people's prices are very cheap, minus the ones specifically for sale for a high price.

Yeah, fits with this, assuming that the price tags match the ads in the bomf district.

“Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster... for when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you.”

Not that Slick is necessarily fighting a monster, but come on, I can't remember anyone quoting Nietzsche yet.


I want Slick to keep wearing the glasses.

I really want Slick to meet 'Nique, see her pricetag, and decide to get rid of the glasses, considering that for him she's worth a lot more.


Wishful thinking right here.

I remember saying that I hoped with Slick finding these glasses, he'd see another world and thus realize how the world could be horrible to women.

Instead he's constantly wearing them and reinforcing his own ideas. Damn.

Well, to be fair, he did stop watching porn, and his heart has thawed.

I'm a bit worried about the price tag. The only exorbitant thing on that list is "alphas only". Everything else is standard for a relationship, isn't it?

Financial security -- maybe. I know a couple authors whose financial security sucks but they seem to be enjoyed by their respective others.

Social status -- no. I would say blocking people out of your "league" because they don't hobnob at the right charity events would be unreasonable.

This is one thing I agree with you on wholeheartedly.
