What is happening here? "Make him yours"? She doesn't appear to want him at all, so how is this a good thing? 5 Free tools? Weapons? Emotional manipulation tactics? Roofies? And why does the relationship need healing? She's looking away so whatever it was, it must've been his fault- right?
See- just the other day, who was I telling? I was talking to someone and I was explaining that all males (I think this applies regardless of orientation) really want sex slaves. It's not a mean thing necessarily- well, maybe it's not primarily meant to be mean. I was explaining that what all men want is an accommodating female body to do things to/with without all the emotional stuff, since were collectively outgunned in this capacity by orders of magnitude. We want a female that doesn't say "no" and that puts up with whatever we can dream up. Maybe that means some contraption in the garage with pulleys, or maybe it's just having a look at where the pee comes from with a magnifying glass.
It's not rooted in misogyny, it's rooted in laziness and hedonism, but it influenced by the Judeo-Christian shame we have here. Not many males are cut of the Marquis de Sade cloth, but ask any man how he felt about Princess Leia in the metal bikini, on a chain in that Star Wars movie, and you'll see the guy go to his "happy place" just remembering it. It's how we're wired. We like to possess things- cars, computers, gadgets- and hey, wouldn't a sex slave be cool?
I was wondering if this ad was trying to play to a similar vibe in women, but in all the times I've asked women about male slaves, sex wasn't the first thing they mentioned. Cooking, cleaning, and foot massages seem to be higher on the female hierarchy of needs. Men think of slaves and they rush to multiple partners, bondage, or anal sex- whatever they themselves have been wanting and not getting, and women think about having someone clean the bathroom. That's a cruel fucking joke to play on us as a species.
What do you want to bet the blonde in that ad is imagining that guy vacuuming?
