Sex without love is actually an act of loneliness, in which those who partake are seeking pleasure rather than true intimacy. The speaker in Sharon Olds’ poem “Sex Without Love” introduces this idea through several metaphors that help to communicate the irresponsibility and selfishness of sex without love. After the first reading of this poem, it seems as if the text is describing loveless sex with beautiful imagery, however, upon further analysis, it is found that these images are being used to highlight the issues pertaining to those who perform acts of love without actually feeling any love for those they perform these acts with. Through the imagery and metaphors presented, the poem enforces the idea that to have sex with those we don’t love is to deprive ourselves of the true intimacy that is involved in having sex with those that we do love. Olds’ poem begins with a question, “How do they do it?
She does this by doing whatever makes her happy which means remaining unmarried like Sula, having sex for the sheer pleasure, and not being too concerned with motherhood. According to Morrison, “She would fuck practically anything, but sleeping with someone implied for her a measure of trust and a definite commitment” (44). Hannah can be seen as an individualistic woman because she has sex with men but doesn’t actually sleep with them because that would mean trusting and committing to them. The only motive that Hannah has sex with these men is for her own pleasure from the sex and not for loyalty or devotion. Through these motives, Morrison portrays Hannah as being self-reliant and engaging in actions that bring her self-pleasure.

“Fantomina: or, Love in a Maze” is a novel written by Eliza Haywood in 1725. Haywood is considered one of the more controversial writers to publish at that time. “Fantomina” is one work which has been both criticized and appreciated because of its promotion of the imprudent choices of a woman and the empowerment of female sexuality. In fact, the main plot of the novel revolves around a female character, whose identity is always changing, who fells in love with a man called Beauplaisir, translated as “Goodpleasure”. They meet in a playhouse, and, after she pretends to be a prostitute, they start talking.
The novel begins showing Janie as a young girl. Hurston explains Janie 's family history by recounting how her black mother was raped by a white school teacher, leading to her biracial nature. The story instills in the reader a reason to be against white men. The novel is centered around the main motif of hair and most specifically Janie 's hair. Throughout the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God, Janie 's hair represents her strength as a woman, and by showing how a woman 's strength collides with both masculine ideals as well as white power, Hurston shows ingrained problems of acceptance within the world.
Eliza Haywood’s Fantomina highlights and encourages the double standard of men sleeping before marriage and women waiting for marriage. Beauplaisir is characterized as the typical aristocratic man of the eighteenth century. He has some goodness as well as being restless in his relationships. This is significant because of the double standard for women in the eighteen century. Men could have sexual relations with as many women as they wanted but women were only considered acceptable if they waited until their wedding night to sexual relations with a man.
This is another aspect of duality within the novel, and this duality is bought out by the relationship that Dorian has with Basil and the heterosexual relationship he has with Sibyl. I believe that Wilde 's mixing homosexual and hetrosexual themes depicts a conflict within Dorian regarding his sexuality and it suggests that he may be bisexual and is torn between love with both male and female characters. This pecieved duality is due to the fact that in the Victorian Era, any type of homosexual or bisexual relationships were considered to be seen as excessive intimacy and these types of
If Damon’s, all my hopes are crossed; Or that of my Alexis, I am lost.” (713). Although this poem talks about love, it is not meant to be deep and romantic. It is simply about a narrator who likes flirting and attention rather than a deep serious romance. This love triangle would be labeled as dysfunctional because the narrator believes both men should show her affection; however, she fails to realize the men’s feelings could be involved and she is using them for her own selfish reasons.
I sympathise greatly for Juliet. Parents should be caring and supportive, whereas Juliet’s parents are not, which makes me sympathise for Juliet. Lady Capulet does not understand Juliet’s feelings and does not care about her opinions as she did not spend much time with her. Juliet’s mother just wants to take advantage of Juliet’ marriage which is selfish. Even though Capulet was concerned he should not have scolded Juliet like that as it could stress her out and hurt her
A binary in the subject of sexual orientation is words that are used to represent different sexual oriented individuals that have been pointed out as adjectives to society by being called homosexual, bisexual, gay, and queer. For sexual orientation binary words are used in a widely portion to describe how “abnormal” people are in order to compare them to what we would call “normal”. Words used to describe a group of people’s orientation are by placing them in the “homosexual” group, which is the group for people who are fond of the same sex. Also the word used to place people who are considered “normal” is “heterosexual” group, when a person has attractions to the opposite sex. Heterosexual and Homosexual binary words are based on the binary of sex.
A modern example is when Bell references misogyny and says, “devastated and disappointed that their daughter had not become the woman they raised her to be: a good girl who would marry her first boyfriend” (25). Unlike Colonial America, today’s country involves a less rigid view on women, but nonetheless still includes misogynistic ideals that need to be removed from society. For example, instead of women being expected to marry their first boyfriend, they are expected to not have many sexual partners, but still have enough sexual experience. Women are allowed more sexual freedom, but are still restricted to an imaginary line drawn by men. This is a classic case of sexually objectifying women, and making them look like they are only here to please males.
6 At the same time a large portion of criticism of the castrato was dedicated to his desirability to women, how his infertility allowed a potential female partner to enjoy sex without the possibility of pregnancy; this paper will discuss those more casual conquests and some castrati who married to women despite a papal ban on their doing so. 7 Castrati were desired because of their difference from other men, and acted on desire in spite of it. However, the phenomenon of castrati is a limited one, as Enlightenment sensibilities spawned an obsession with clear categories (sexual dimorphism among them) and the uncovering of ‘Truth’ in ‘natural’ bodies. Enlightened persons could no longer reconcile the “disparities of gender, voice, and body” the castrato demonstrated. 8
Everyone in life wants to fit in because why would anyone want to be left out? However, the fact that we want to fit in ruins some people's lives because of the limits they go to to accomplish our common goal. On the contrary, some lives are ruined by trying to stand out and not staying with the crowd. This is very clearly stated in two very different ways by Guy de Maupassant in the story “The Necklace” and by Ray Bradbury in “The Pedestrian”.
In the beginning of the novel, Irene has some mixed feelings about Clare. Irene at first was judgmental of Clare without knowing who she was, but as they grew closer Irene almost treated Clare like a new toy. Irene was not for everything Clare was for, but always ended up giving in. This provided Irene with some mobility, yet Irene really gave Clare the most mobility.
