I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me.
His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot.
I don't mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically;
but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated.
I don't mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing,
but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding.”
