Players: Husband and wife. Activist: Husband. Setting: Home or hotel.
Aim: Husband mirrors radical wife’s attitude by reversing sexual roles, thereby “shocking” her into awareness.
Game Plan: One evening, when the husband and wife are about to have sex, and the wife as usual begins to lie on top of the husband and take exacting control of their lovemaking, the husbands protests, saying he wants to get on top.
She: “You know I can’t stand being on the bottom.”
He: “Well, I can’t stand it either.”
He: “Because, if you must know, I feel dominated by you. I feel like I’m being raped.” He: “Men can’t be raped.” He: “Well, that’s how I feel.” She: “Since when?”
He: “Since I had a nightmare the other night.”
She: “I don’t believe you.”
He: “You don’t believe I feel raped?”
