But, O strange men!
When Helen thinks about her steamy hookup with Bertram, she wonders how it's possible that Bertram could have made such sweet love to a person that he hates (Helen). In the end, Helen chalks it up to plain old lust. This seems about right to us; Shakespeare scholar Harold Bloom agrees. He says that the bed trick is Shakespeare's way of making fun of men who don't really discriminate between sexual partners (source).
