The myth that only men treat the opposite sex as objects, is just that - a myth. The sooner women are more honest about their lustful feelings, and the sooner society stops treating sexually open women as sluts the better it will be for all of us.
The working assumption is that men look at women as sex objects and not the other way around. Oh no! Women are far too virtuous. But that theory is just a way of denying the reality of female desire - which in truth is a powerful force.
A Saturday afternoon - I am watching the rugby. South Africa vs. Australia. The camera slows down during the replay and closes in on the buttocks and thighs of two of the Australian players. There is no clue to their identity or individuality. Faces, jerseys or numbers are not shown - they are just flesh.
I am struck by the thought that such an image featuring female bodies would have been seen as sexual. This apparently is different. No one in the pub appears to notice anything unusual, but then I have not reacted - at least not visibly - either. These Aussie arses are pert and high in their shorts. Unlike the thickset Springboks, their thighs are rangy and muscular. Rugged, yes; ripped, yes - but also beautiful. It is hard not to imagine what they would feel like wrapped around you, pulling you closer.
