This was so nearly a plot of my dreams: a queer female sex worker outwits one of our greatest minds, remains calm and collected throughout with a hit of exploring the performativity of sex work?
But then Steven Moffat wrote it.
"There’s this issue you’re not allowed to discuss: that women are needy. Men can go for longer, more happily, without women. That’s the truth. We don’t, as little boys, play at being married - we try to avoid it for as long as possible. Meanwhile women are out there hunting for husbands. ... Well, the world is vastly counted in favour of men at every level - except if you live in a civilised country and you’re sort of educated and middle-class, because then you’re almost certainly junior in your relationship and in a state of permanent, crippled apology. Your preferences are routinely mocked. There’s a huge, unfortunate lack of respect for anything male."
Secondly, in most BDSM porn it seems to be mostly the case, maybe 90% of the time, that it's the man who dominates the woman in a mixed-sex pair. On TV it's almost always the woman dominating the man. I think it's the same sort of thing as on TV women usually stalk men as in "Fatal Attraction", while in real life it's usually men who stalk women. The exceptional case is treated as the norm because it's more interesting.
