At this point Faith asked the main character if he would like to meet for drinks the next day, but he declined, because the next day he may not be feeling horny anymore. Obviously, the main character was so determined to do something sexy that night he turned down a friendly invitation, which proves that Holden Caulfield is fascinated by sex and women. Over all because the protagonist called an unknown woman for sex, then refused her proposal for a get together the next day; Holden is obviously fixated with both sex and women. Second, another example of Holden’s perversion is when he hires a prostitute named Sunny from the elevator man at his hotel. Although some may say that calling a stranger in the middle of the night, like Holden did with Faith, is normal, but hiring a prostitute when one is sixteen years old is far from average.

At first Olive is approached by Brandon, a fellow high school student that is bullied and beat up for being homosexual. He has heard the rumors around school about Olive having sex, which he believes is true, and she explains to him it was a lie, but that if he wants to be treated as “normal” he should lie about who he is as well. This prompts him to convince her to lie about having sex with him so people will believe he is straight, and so he will stop being tormented. Brandon even goes as far as saying “I can’t take another day of this...I feel like I’m suffocating,” about his high school experience. She agrees, and they go to a big high school party and fake having sex in a room so people... ... middle of paper ... ...’t tell you, how shitty it feels to be an outcast, warranted or not.” This is developed thoroughly when he has such low self-esteem and thinks his identity is so bad, he is willing to have sex with a girl just to fit in.

However, since the mother is missing during the key development points, such as teen years, of Ginny, the effect is the same because she did not get to grow up properly. The difference between the Ginny is that she is not just purely evil because she has a reason to hate her father. Notably, Rose tells Ginny that, "He was having sex with you... After he stopped going in to you, he started coming in to me, and those are the things he said to me, and that 's what we did. We had sex in my bed" (Smiley 189-190). In this quote, Rose is trying to convince Ginny that they cannot show mercy to their father because of the way he treated them when they were teenagers.
The loss of my virginity was not quite as much of a big deal as people would have you think, and because of this I would pretend to be a virgin for the next six years (this was a major part of the way I would ‘woo’ women).

Instead he is pressured into sex with her, even though he really never wanted. Sex is what she wants and he knows it would make her happy by giving into her. He feels horrible while this happens, but he will not stop because he wants to impress her. Countering the Culture of Sex is an article by Ellen Goodman dealing with the entertainment industry’s plague upon society. With sex rooted deep in children’s minds it creates this idea of what life revolves around.
Also, the fact that Nick is so easily seduced by Martha makes one doubt the love in his marriage to Honey. Another perception destroyed in this act is that the men hold the power in the relationships, which was the standard when the play was written. Their sexuality is what gives Martha and Honey their power. Honey used a false pregnancy to force Nick to marry her while Martha, as the daughter of the president of the university, uses sex as a tool to advance the careers of certain professors (although never her own husband). In the third act, we learn that Nick is perhaps not the athletic sexually voracious man we may have thought he was; his failure to consummate the affair with Martha resulted from his failure to maintain an erection.
However, in her later madness, Ophelia taints this image by revealing that her innocence is feigned. By exposing the sexual natures of both Gertrude and Ophelia, Hamlet strips these women of any influence they may have had, and damages their once-honourable names. Hamlet possesses an uncomfortable obsession with his mother’s sexuality. For this reason, Hamlet’s soliloquies provide most of the audience’s information about Gertrude’s sexual activities. In his first soliloquy, Hamlet refers to the relationship between Gertrude and Claudius when he exclaims, “Within a month…She married.
