Yunioshi recalls the issue of censorship during this time period. The most egregious example of the morality clause being in the service of a patriarchal system, that gains power through the oppression of the Other, is revealed when a strange older man is seen standing outside the apartment on multiple occasions.
Buddy Epson was 53 in ; Audrey Hepburn was Doc is treated as a lovelorn ex-husband trying to retrieve his long-lost Lulamae. Holly gently turns him away, walks him to the bus stop, sending him back to Texas, all the while, thanking him for all he had done for her.
Doc is then seen threatening Holly: if she does not come back home with him, then her brother, who is currently serving in the military overseas and is coded gay in the book, but not in the movie , will not be welcomed into the Golightly household upon his return.

The show features a group of five good-looking men living in Las Vegas as gigolos: the 21 show makes clear that the gigolos have morals: they do not service other men. Their main clientele is single women, and they will not take on a client who is married unless she tells her husband.
Why would typical women risk their careers by allowing themselves to be filmed in soft-core fashion, having sex on national television? This question led to uncovering the truth about the behind-the-scenes of the program.
Both texts use the master narrative of heterosexual romance leading to marriage, which masks the actual exploitation of the female body being exchanged for sex by spinning prostitution into the culturally accepted mythos of the Pygmalion transformation narrative. Since prostitution is illegal in Las Vegas, the show depends upon a small legal loophole. In this unlikely comparison, the representation of sex —not as real human interaction and intimacy—but as a type of performance for cash, continues to reify the cultural legitimacy, mainstream appeal, and commercial profit not for real sex, but more specifically, the exchange of sexual performance, —faking it—for money, especially if you are a woman.
Both narrative structures work in tandem with the central motif of a free economy; a marketplace that relies on the notion that there is something inherently lacking in the consumer, something that is wrong and needs to be fixed. It was fun. It gave me exactly what I was needing that I knew I was missing. The fact that the woman is an actress being paid reverses the reality of the exploitation of women because, in a capitalistic society, if you are the one paying for the service, then you are supposedly not the one being exploited.
Over 2. Anything and Anybody.
Steven holds a moral high ground over Valerie, and 2. Valerie is morally compromised because she pays for sex even though she is in a committed relationship. In due course, the more women buy into their own commodification, the more they increase in value, and in the end, it is us, the women, who pay the ultimate price, one that only gets more costly with the unalterable passage of time.
