All women appear to experience a form of ‘enforced sexual servitude’ at some point in their lives, married or not, 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

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

Is free love really free? 

Strange sexual transgressions pushing the boundaries of accepted normality

Beyond the regulated range of the consumer market-bubble

That excludes personal liberty

Blind eyes are turned, just so long as its profitable

The public are force-fed a diet of highly controlled fictional imagery, a daily bombardment

Provides a carefully manufactured façade of illusion presented as usual

To manipulate 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

Sinking like quicksand, side-effects of conformity, fraught with hidden murky 

Undertones that require regular quick-fix, relief-outlets

From the suppressed, repressed emotions

Of rib-less culture struggles, the queerest folk of the post-millennium

Age of narcissism

Driven by the machine of desire, overloaded with sensationalist titillation

Stretched beyond ones misshapen limits, and all tantric recognition
