It's imaginary.

I was raised by three women, and they all agree that women will try to make you think they own you by owning her sex. Most men will go the impossible for ----s. In reality, women want sex just as bad as men do. They are just better than men in hiding it.

If you can't dazzle them with your brilliance.. then you have no choice but to baffle then with your --------.

Or you might be forced to be honest and speak the Truth!

We can't be having any of that now, can we?
