THE POWER OF “THE BOX”
Okay so this post is inspired by a converstion I had yesterday but is very relevant to a lot of women so here it is:
If a woman recognizes her power over men, and chooses to exercise it, she can own a man. I don’t care who the man is or what he’s accomplished; if she wants him and he’s at all attracted to her, she can own him. Or she can own him as long as she can create illusions in his mind, the kind of illusions that bring on the free-flowing rush of sensations and the thrill of feeling truly alive. Illusions are powerful, maybe the most powerful force of all when it comes to men. A man will do anything, and risk everything, to keep the illusions alive and the sensations flowing.
Whatever the source of a woman’s power may be, she needs to use it wisely. A woman doesn’t want to assert so much power over a man that he loses a key aspect of his manhood. Men may acknowledge a woman’s power; they may even welcome it at times. But men always want to feel like men. Men want to feel strong. Men want to feel protective. Men want to feel they’re capable of handling anything that comes their way. Some of these feelings may be illusions, but, as I said, illusions are often what keep men going. If a man has been stripped of his powers, of his beliefs about his masculinity, he loses respect for himself, and eventually his woman loses respect for him, too. She may own him, but what does she own?
With that in mind, maybe the strongest power a woman has is to refrain from using it, or to use only enough of it to make a man want her and to keep him wanting her. Just because a woman can own a man doesn’t mean she has to. They may both be happier if her power is exercised so seamlessly that he can maintain the illusion that maybe it’s his power that she’s attracted to. Is that itself a kind of manipulation? Maybe, but I don’t think many men would complain, even if they could recognize it. If his illusions are left intact, a man is always happy.
