Losing My Edge

I think I am losing my edge as a male of our species.
The other night, I watched a documentary that followed the path of several young women in the pornography industry.  The documentary focused primarily on the somewhat cruel dynamic of the internet-driven market.  Most girls are chewed up and spit out in a few months.
The documentary was not at all explicit, but at times young women of various undress were featured.
Here is the issue—most of the time, while the unclothed girls were on the screen, I found myself looking at the background.  The electrical system installation where they filmed some of the documentary was awful.
So there I was…counting crooked wall plates and squinting at poorly installed lighting as a bunch of half-nude young women were scampering around.
