All women at some point in their lives, whether married or single

Appear to have experienced some form of ‘enforced sexual servitude’ and is a fundamental

Feminist observation, that her body is already pre-appropriated for a specific purpose or task, a political pawn:

Necessary to replenish the population / army / work force / state procreation

And / or The Pleasure Principal: a distraction from critical debate and moral reflection

Q: Should bodies or relationships be controlled, choices contrived, towards an engineered trajectory?

Q: Is free love really free?

A multiplicity of sexual transgressions pushing the boundaries of accepted normality

Expanding the regulated range of the consumer market-bubble

That excludes personal liberty

Blind eyes are turned, just so long as its profitable

While the public are force-fed a highly controlled diet of fictional imagery

A daily bombardment providing a carefully manufactured façade of illusion, presented as usual

A manipulation of things being done a certain way, lulled into a false sense of insecurity and self-rejection

As one attempts to dismantle the edifice of patriarchal tradition

Where the sacred feminine has been completely erased from the narrative of Creation

Side-effects of conformity, a consumer-centred despotism fraught with hidden murky undertones

Where the misuse of power over women’s bodies is a prerequisite for their appropriation

As a relief-outlet, a regular quick-fix from suppressed, repressed emotions

Of rib-less culture-struggles driven by the machine-of-desire and consumerism

Overloaded with sensationalist titillation

Where the sanctity of love, unity and connection are forsaken

Bent, misshapen and stretched beyond all limits and tantric recognition

The curious behavioural-antics of a post-millennial age of narcissism
