Society is becoming a Brave New World due to sex and promiscuity. There a lot of precious people in the world that have multiple person. “And that why we went to bed together like infants instead of being adults and waiting” (Huxley 94). Bernard is telling that Leina that he wanted to build a relationship first before they have sex. In the book, sex is less of sharing a particular intimate moment with your lover and more of an act that give you mild pleasure. There is no lover or partner, pleasure is share with everyone like everything else. This can happen in the world world, a person can think more with their secual desire than the mind. “Over two million women and children around the world live under the oppression of polygamy” (History

A lesbian is a woman- indentified woman and Adrienne Rich calls it ‘Lesbian continuum’ she explains lesbian continuum is “Include is a range through each woman’s life and throughout history of woman indentified experience no simply the fact that a woman has had consciously desired genital sexual experience with another woman (25)”. Rich argues to embrace many more forms of primary intensity between and among women including the sharing of a rich inner life.

Qualities within a culture's view of relationships often vary. In Fahrenheit 451 you choose a spouse whom you then stay with. This is similar to how relationships function in our world. However, in Fahrenheit 451 relationships are given less worth. When you marry, you don’t wed for love. In the book Montag and his wife Mildred do not even remember how they met each other. In our world most companionships are meaningful and genuine. Nevertheless there are still plenty of relationships in our present world that do not share the same facets. Relationships are something that everyone has and are very prominent in our lives. Sadly, in both our current world and in Fahrenheit 451 there are empty and meaningless relationships.

In Alice Munro’s story “Wild Swans”, Rose is imagining things that may confuse people into thinking that she is being sexually harassed. Rose is a young girl who rides on a train for the first time and is seated next to an old man. She feels the old man 's hand on her leg in a disrespectful manner but it is all in her head. It is proven that Rose was only imagining the old man’s hand on her leg in a sexual manner in the since of: her own desire of wanting pleasure, the old man 's kindness and age shows that he is blameless, and lastly pressure shows that what she was feeling was a ten dollar in her pocket not a hand.
Immediately following the statement they kissed each other's necks is the statement that the girls also 'We sucked each other's breasts, and we left marks, and never spoke of it upstairs / outdoor, in daylight, not once' (11). The clear and simple statement that the girls sucked each other's breasts extends into a longer sentence, which generates the sense of the intensity of the memory dissipating and the desire generated in the action remains unfulfilled. This is immediately followed with another affirmation, present again in a sentence which extends itself: 'We did it, and it was / practicing, and slept sprawled so our legs still locked or crossed, a hand still lost / in someone's hair' (11). The first line of this pair perfectly manifests the tension between memory and loss which is present in the poem. The line break after the word 'was' presents a reading of the words before it as simply an affirmation that the desire between the girls and their physical intimacy actually and really existed. The continuation of the sentence past this line break into a long and diverse sentence detailing in tender detail the way in which the girls would sleep holding each other, serves both to affirm this memory further but also to show that the affirmation in the simple fact of 'and it was' could not be adequately fulfilled within the world of the speaker's youth. She both affirms the event through her memory and at the

After reading the critical essay “Neon Gothic: Lost in Translation” by Wendy Haslem, her central argument was found to be that of how Lost in Translation (Coppola,2003) presents a nontraditional approach to a romance in comparison to the expected. Haslem goes on to support her claim of an unconventional romance by using examples of scenes from the film, such as the scene where Bob and Charlotte share a goodbye kiss. In traditional romantic films, there is no mistake in understanding the intent of a kiss. However, in Lost in Translation, the intent of the kiss shared between Bob and Charlotte is not very direct and arises a lot of questions to its meaning. Another piece of textual evidence found to support the claim is the connection made between the two main characters throughout the film. One would assume that the unique bond shared between them would lead to the start of a formal relationship, but to our surprise the couple was not united at the end of the film. Again, supporting the claims of an
