Sex Ploytation Part 8

Part 8

This sub chapter is called "truelove"

Withholding sex is a lesson which encourages a young girl to overrate the value of her
body. By the time she's in her twenties and searching for "Mr. Right" (Mr. Cash), she
innately believes that her vagina is worth an expensive car, a huge house, and a lavish
lifestyle, no matter what she looks like. After all, Mom, trained by her mother to be a
prostitute as well, has always been fond of telling her, "It's just as easy to marry a rich
man as a poor one". She believes that a man should provide her with everything she
wants without expecting any sort of reciprocal payment. When she dates, she will
passively wait to be asked out, thinking that only a "desperate woman" or a "slut" chases
men; she will not pick up a check, or even make the offer. If for some reason she should
feel pressure to make such a gesture, it will only be perfunctory-if her date takes her up
on the suggestion, she will never see him again. As before, he has tacitly implied that her
body isn't worth paying for. She will judge all prospective lovers explicitly by how much
they are willing to spend on her.

Still, she fancies herself a feminist. At work, she bitches about how unfair it is that men
are earning more than she is, even though she hasn't bothered to train herself adequately
for a better position. She hates her job, and resents having to work at all, since she
actually has to perform labor and doesn't have enough time to flirt with the unmarried upand-
coming executives, which is why she chose to work for this company in the first
place. She explains to her friends that she doesn't care how much money a man makes,
because "money isn't important", yet she won't even acknowledge the delivery man or the
technician who try to catch her eye. At night, she leafs through her women's magazines,
poring over articles about where to find rich men, while she fills out relationship surveys
with responses that she wants a guy with a sense of humor who will be considerate of her
feelings. She has become an expert at lying to herself; she has learned to internalize her
