Is it as easy to commit a Pa as it is as Oea?

My take: My OEA involved what I wanted the OM to see, including manipulated photos (appealing angles, photoshop, etc). I could not do a PA because I have severe body image issues and could not achieve the required level of emotional intimacy with anyone else.

Opposite side: because I had an OEA and exchanged pictures of myself, I would easily engage in a PA. Especially if it were a coworker who I had known for years.

So, other WS who have also committed OEAs, what is your take on this?

For me the OEA was a way to connect without being seen in person; an ego boost because of feeling unattractive and aging. I wanted things kept at a distance for that reason-- would never have wanted to meet or even exchange pictures. The faceless fantasy aspect was what I needed.
