"Rubber Heart" is about a first time sexual encounter between a man and a woman who don't know each other well. After unveiling her new, full pubic hair Anna is met with an odd response, leaving her feeling distant and unsettled. This story explores arrhythmic body language, ownership of the physical form and resistance. This character is at odds with the concept of vulnerability; a woman struggling for connection despite her independence.
