Rejection and sexual fantasy

The male sexual fantasy is that he will never be rejected. The fantasy is so inveterate that even rape porn portrays the victim wanting the experience, despite this being almost sheer contradiction. Contra Nietzsche, the fantasy is not just that one’s will might encounter no opposition but that it be positively affirmed, accepted, celebrated. Part of my will be done is that you affirm.

The female sexual fantasy is that rejection either never happens or that it is deserved. The fantasy is to have many suitors. Obviously, one needs to be rejected, but either it will all magically work out and every guy will find his girl or the man will end up alone as a punishment. See any Shakespeare comedy for all the options.
