A critique by Laura Jacquez Valentine in which she coined the phrase "Zombie Hand of Rob Lowe" for a body part in a sex scene that inadvertently sounds as though it might belong to someone other than the two characters having sex ("a hand caressed him," "a finger stroked a thigh.")
The name comes from a reference to watching Rob Lowe on television in the story the essay critiqued, leading Laura to ask Whose finger is it? Does it belong to Blair, or Jim, or Rob Lowe?
