It is all the more interesting when it is seen in the light of the power play that occurs in most heterosexual marriages, where the wife is the submissive party dominated by her husband; this shows a macabre curiosity on the part of the person who poses question whereby he wants to know that since there is no gender difference between the couple, how do they decide which party is the dominant one (or the husband). To extend on what bell hooks said about sexual integrity and sexual freedom being different but not anathema to one another, I have noticed that society still has a very negative attitude about a woman who possesses and utilizes sexual freedom. It is often thought that a woman who is sex-positive, so to speak, especially if she practices non-traditional forms of sex, is considered to be “easy” or “up for it”. Clarisse Thorn, a BDSM educator, and activist, has had men grope her because they think that because she talks about such “taboos” so openly, she does not have any sexual integrity or boundaries (Thorn), what is more, she says that it is not only society in general, but even radical feminists who consider sexually free women to be synonymous to “freely sexually available”. It is not the same when it comes to sexually free men; no such availability is ascribed to men who practice their sexual freedom.
