Bonnie Says: Duke University's Karen Owen Is The Sexual Oversharer of All time! And Good Luck Getting a Job!

Fri, October 8, 2010 2:16pm EDT by 33 Comments

Forget Jessica Simpson’s gas attacks or the Kardashian sisters’ obsessions with ‘lube’ and bikini waxing, a Duke university grad, Karen Owen, has become an overnight celebrity for her detailed PowerPoint of 13 of her lovers’ social skills.

This 22-year-old wrote a personal “senior honors thesis” on her sexual flings and binges with 13 of Duke University’s most desirable men, mostly well-built male athletes.

Now, Karen Owen didn’t just describe her sexual encounters, she named the men, used their photos and then ruthlessly evaluated their sexual techniques and equipment (or lack thereof) in highly specific detail.

She grades each of her “subjects” on physical attractiveness, “size” (as in the penile variety), talents, creativity, aggressiveness (which she likes), entertainment, athletic ability and “bonus.”

Bonus points were given for “extraneous” factors such as the presence of an Australian accent and points were deducted for “rudeness of being Canadian.” Wow, does that mean that being Canadian, in bed, is just plain rude? Warning to Justin Bieber especially: DO NOT have relations with Karen Owen.

Now, Karen Owen — who was a biological anthropology major — perhaps thought her opus sexual critique was a positive expression of her course of study. She now claims it was all a joke. At least that’s what she told some of the press.

What it tells me is that biological anthropology was clearly not that demanding a course of study, and that she had a HUGE amount of time on her hands. She spent countless hours in local bar Shooters drinking endlessly and picking up her subjects, then bedding them and finally documenting in explicit detail the memorable moment of their hot (and not) hookups.

It’s TMI time of epic proportions: From their pillow talk to positions, to her preferences for violent sex! TMI, TMI, TMI.

What all this also tells me about Karen Owens is that she is self-absorbed and evilly passive-aggressive, despite her protests now that she only intended the PowerPoint sex critique to go to three friends and that “I regret it with all my heart. I would never intentionally hurt the people that are mentioned on that.”

Oh, really, Karen: Were you actually born yesterday? I don’t think so. You wrote this with the total intention of hurting the men who were your sexual lab rats. Even if you only intended the presentation with names and photos to only go to your friends (online) you were dissing all these guys to a minimum of three women.

They were the “top dogs” on campus as you described in your sex epistle. Admit it: You wanted to humiliate them or you wouldn’t have ever overshared this critique with your friends? It’s all very passive aggressive behavior, and your victims, “top dogs” or not, are still young men who are probably insecure and now will be far more so.

Your self-descbibed “f**k list” also reveals that you are clueless and careless about your future. Aside from the fact that any guy would have to be nuts to ever sleep with you — who is going to want hire you?

You’re beyond not trustworthy, you’re a gigantic blabber, you’re a backstabber, and you’ve revealed that you drink too much, and have absolutely no judgment. Male bosses will be terrified to hire you: What will you critique about them online? Women bosses won’t want to touch you with a ten-foot pole either for all the same reasons above. And there’s no feminist empowerment aspect to dissing a man’s lack of largesse between his legs, so you won’t get any help there.

So Karen Owen — I’m scratching my head head over who would ever take a chance of hiring you. Oh, I do have an idea.

The New York city public school system — may — accept you as a teacher if you just keep quiet for a few months. they just gave tenure to a woman who was a former prostitute and then boasted about it online.

Are we seriously to infer that you have never made fun of or bragged about your sexual encounters in private to your girlfriends–and used names?

Wouldn’t you think that Owens private email has gone ‘viral’ reflects far more negatively on our digital society than it does Ms. Owens?

Even if we give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that your post is just an attempt to trigger more page impressions, that you’d write this hateful nonsense at the expense of an embarrassed college grad…

That said, someone hired you, so we know Ms. Owens can be optimistic.

Cheers.

First, some men do talk about their sexual encounters — so do a lot of women. (“Details, Girlfriend!”) But when you’re talking about your encounter with a guy, (or he’s talking about you) it’s with a few people, it seldom goes further, and the person being talked about usually never knows about it, and never knows other people know about it.

Now imagine you hook up with some guy in a bar and have so-so sex. A year later, a friend calls and says “You better get to http://www.jezebel.com, RIGHT NOW!” You go and find an article he wrote, with 2 pictures of you, your name, your school, details from start to finish of your encounter, disparaging remarks about your “excessive pubic hair and funky smell”, a humorous mockery of your “technique” along with a poor “rating.”

How would you feel? Can you honestly not see the difference between the two scenarios?

I’m astounded that not one of those boys committed suicide, so far. This is no different from what those two pieces of human garbage did to that gay guy that killed himself, when they broadcast his encounter over the Internet.

And for those who feel like “guys have it coming,” or “it’s their turn:” If Ted hits Sally, does that make it ok for Sue to hit Bob? And if so, does that then make it ok for John to hit Sheila? How many people need to be hurt before it’s “fair?”

Isn’t this the university student that is being sued by three of those men in her “thesis”? I wonder if they are the ones that didn’t do so well on her “rating” list for their sexual technique and equipment! Oh well, men do it to women all the time over a few beers.

I find it sickening how many women agree with Karen. Many responses that I have heard from various websites have either been for Karen’s attitude or a comment on how men do this too. I have never done this, nor do any of my friends. Matter of fact I have never heard of this being done before. I have seen video tapes of celebrity’s being leaked, but this is far different. Regardless of gender, this individual released opinionated damaging information about these men. I could care less how many men she has slept with. Her sex life shouldn’t be on trial. It is the damage and embarrassment that she has caused these men in their personal and professional life. I certainly do hope that she gets a book deal, so they can sue her for slander and get every penny she is worth. At 26, a college graduate, in great shape and financially secure, I have made the choice to stay single and stray away from dating. This is just one more thing that strengthens the security in my decision.

I work in HR for a large company and Bonnie is right. This girl will never get a job. Once something derrogatory is posted on the NET it has a life of its own. One of the first things we do in HR is Google a candidates name. You people who disagree, fine do what you want but if you are like this girl you will never, ever find employment!

Who hires through HR anymore?! Definitely not the publishing industry. It’s all about who you know! And now everyone knows her name so don’t be surprised if she shows up as a columnist in Cosmopolitan, Gawker, or Jezebel. Writers (and publications) loooove infamy. She’ll do just fine. And if she writes a book, I’ll read it!

Believe me, any high end company paying over $200,000 definitely looks into all background — especially Internet and all its sites. Don’t kid yourself the CEOs of even huge publication houses also watch who they hire for the big bucks. This girl will make the $65,000 to $80,000 range if lucky.

Perhaps Karen Owen can get a job as a rep. for sports equipment like Lacrosse equipment. She could visit athletes and try to make a sale.

Cheers,

Bonnie, you’re such a prude. Just because she made fun of Canadians you’re all up in arms. Get over it. Canadians are too much fun to make fun of… there’s so much to talk aboot! Also, she’s got book deals for miles so she’s going to be fine… probably more famous and rich than you, who makes a living degrading and mocking people. Also, guys do this all the time and don’t get in trouble… if it gets sent around, oh well, those girls were “asking for it.” As a woman trying to run a successful media company in 2010, I suggest you get with the times and understand women today aren’t the doormats they were when you were young. Suck on it, you hypocritical Canadian goose.

NEWSFLASH….She is no more than an unoriginal media wh***. This was already done in the Kevin Smith movie “Mallrats”. One would think that being a Duke student, she could’ve at least come up with something original.

What a hypocrite! Bonnie, you are the President & Editor-in-Chief, HollywoodLife.com, you literally make a living from humiliating countless amounts of people every day. Granted most of them are celebrities who seek and ask for the public attention , but some are not such as Karen Owen who is just a 21 year old college student for christ sake. I mean its one thing to just report the story, but it is another thing to stoop so low and make personal attacks against someone you have never even met. I mean c’mon bonnie what are you in third grade? So when you say ” I’m scratching my head head over who would ever take a chance of hiring you. Oh, I do have an idea.” and go on to make a jab at the new york public school system (an issue I am sure you know so much about) why not instead be realistic, cause if Karen really is as mean, immature, misinformed, and vile as you accuse her to be then I’d tell her why not try getting a job at hollywoodlife.com

You go girl. Sexual freedom of women scares the crap out of men, and apparently some women too. She knew what she was doing. She wasn’t looking for a relationship. Her mistake was making it public. Gentlemen tell no tales, and neither do ladies.

WOW!! Tell me how you really feel! Who knows if this will really affect her options for work, Racheal Uchitel and Ashlee Dupree are able to generate income. What’s sad is how many women think that this somehow speaks to the equality of the sexes– ummmm, no. For those that think this, please read it, there is nothing empowering about what she did…it’s just skanky and would be if it were a man too. I’m POSITIVE that the level of respect that she had for them they had even less for her, the athletes only slept with her because she was willing, not because she was smart , beautiful, etc.

She really should be embarrased and people should be calling her out not praising her. Would anyone be ok with this if someone you know or loved was doing this? Hell no!

Thank you for pointing out how inappropriate her behavior was, I don’t care if guys have been doing this it’s still disgusting and shows that Karen owens has deep mental issues and needs some serious therapy. I believe any type of worthy company would never hire a train wreck like this. Sorry in my book she’s more screwed up then Lindsey Logan and for the ladies that can’t see what the problem is with what she did I feel sorry for you, you should have more respect for your self

Wow, again I’m taken aback by Ms. Fuller’s antipathy. Sadly, I think it’s people like Ms. Fuller who have made smut and oversharing the norm. So thank you, Bonnie Fuller, for creating this young lady. Now hire her — you know you want to!

Don’t bet on it! She’ll get a job with no problem. If anything the author of this article is a a bit obsessed with hating this girl. Men have been doing this to women for years. Welcome to equality ladies!! Men, get used to it. Women can now screw you right back!

Kobio- just because men have done it, doesn’t make it right. And can u name an instance of a man doing this to 13 female university students- publishg their names, photos & sexual critiques online. I can’t. This is another form of bullying & it’s wrong, no matter what the sex.

middle ages are long gone, its time to go with the time.
