Peggy Sleeping With Duck on Mad Men

Mad Men: Do One-Night Stands Make You Feel Worse?

Peggy! So good at your job, so bad at choosing men. Back in the first season of Mad Men, she skittishly flirts with Don, her boss, on her first day because she's told he needs to like his secretaries to keep them. That fails, and she sleeps with smarmy Pete Campbell, who just happens to be getting married that weekend.

Then last night, she has a "go-round" with — spoiler! — middle-age Duck. BuzzSugar touches on the pure ickiness of this in their 5 Maddest Moments, but I have something to add. I know she's young and negotiating the power of her sexuality, but she sleeps with almost anyone who is willing.

It felt OK when she went home with that college boy earlier this season, because she was clearly in control and having fun. She even said no to sex because he didn't have a condom. Last night, though, it didn't feel like fun anymore. The look on her face the next morning progresses from $%*! to uneasiness and, finally, regret. But who knows, because they do it again! Duck "loves mornings."

Let's hope this tryst doesn't bring any ducklings.

Duck is divorced and slightly pathetic

Peggy seems naive to me. She sometimes makes unwise choices. Maybe Peter is right that Duck wants to 'hit Don where it hurts,' therefore he seduces Peggy. If that's the case, that's suck for Peggy becoming like a pion in a 'war' between these two. I wonder where this 'relation' will go between Peggy and Duck.Bear in mind, I haven't been watching the show up until this season. :p So I have no background story regarding Duck and perhaps his swarminess. The seduction scene didn't make me cringe, just raise some concern like 'is he by any chance a married man?' Hmm.

In Peg's defense, she didn't sleep with the guy who coming on to her hard at Paul's party in New Jersey. Don's scene with Peggy in the office directly led to this. She looks up to Don, a work place father figure and mentor. After his professional cruelty, she sees Duck, who is giving her all the professional feedback she wants to hear. She's not savvy enough that realize he's just using her to get back at Don. I think it's pretty unfair to call Peggy a slut. She's a young woman, who sometimes makes bad choices. Joan slept with Roger and Paul Kinsey...I don't see anyone making value judgements against her.
