The author uses an analogy of two boys given a box of chocolates to share, but one brother refuses to give half of them to the other boy. She argues that it would be unfair of the boy, but in the example of the violinist, the woman did not give the use of her body to the violinist and would not be unjust to “unplug” herself from him.
