One thought on “Is There a Morality to Sexual Fantasies ROUND 2: Sexuality in Creative Art

  1. “Male fantasies, male fantasies, is everything run by male fantasies? Up on a pedestal or down on your knees, it’s all a male fantasy: that you’re strong enough to take what they dish out, or else too weak to do anything about it. Even pretending you aren’t catering to male fantasies is a male fantasy: pretending you’re unseen, pretending you have a life of your own, that you can wash your feet and comb your hair unconscious of the ever-present watcher peering through the keyhole, peering through the keyhole in your own head, if nowhere else. You are a woman with a man inside watching a woman. You are your own voyeur.”
    -Margaret Atwood.

    This is one of those episodes where I don’t write in – not because I don’t have anything to add, but because there’s too much to say and I can’t really organise my thoughts on paper. So I thought I’d just put down this Margret Atwood quote (she of “The Handmaid’s Tale” fame) that pops into my head every time a see a scene where a woman takes a titillating shower.
