In fact, the level of sexual desire fluctuates between all of the characters. Hippolyta reveals in her response to Theseus that she too cannot wait until their wedding night, but she is far better at hiding it. It, however, is not the case that women are forced to hide their sexual wants due to it being considered ‘unsuitable’ for women, as can be seen in the case of Helena and Demetrius. Helena is far from afraid of announcing her affections for Demetrius to him. It is a form of sexual harassment, and Demetrius is far from giving into her wants, and even goes about warning her from spending too much time with him unsupervised: “You do impeach your modesty too

The king was already tired of his wife and very affected by the fact that she couldn’t give him a male heir, so he sought comfort in other women’s arms, including Mary, Anne’s sister. But the odds were in Anne’s favor who was soon to become “the most happy” queen. Her youth, charm, intelligence and ambition helped her get the King’s attention. At first, Anne denied Henry VIII’s sexual favors saying that she wanted to be “A Queen or not at all” .

She constantly seeks reassurance and acceptance of her two navels. Yet she understands how most people find this idea unnatural and repulsive, attempting to arrange for an operation to get one of her navels removed, but stops, realizing that living in her illusion provided her with more “safety and happiness” than what living in reality did. She initially resolves to permanently live in her illusions: in the context of escaping reality and the troubles that come with it, Connie continues to evade the problems that chase her (her mother Concha and her husband Macho). It is worth noting though, that Connie succeeds in escaping her problems, as in the time span of the novel, Connie never physically meets Concha or Macho, the two major sources of her problems. This then corroborates Connie’s idea of escaping reality as an effective solution (at face value) to dealing with her

Throughout the novel, Hester encounters a barrage of disrespect and cruelty. Her own people shun her because she falls in love and bears her child a lover.
