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 Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston follows the life of a Biracial woman named Janie as she struggles to find love and happiness in her confusing life. 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.
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. "Behn is one whose writings both embody the contradictions of society and, at the same time, offer a critique of it"
I think that Capulet had every right to be angry as he would have wanted the best for Juliet. 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.
