I like the guys that leave their pants on. I don't know why. Power? The guy standing there with all the confidence and talent required just seems sort of powerful -- in charge -- persuasive -- and, can be counted on to deliver.
The guys with their pants down around their ankles have put themselves in a position that can be challenging and satisfying. They are like middle management. They have to be willing to bend over backwards to please a superior. They have to get the job done. They don't have as much power as the guy on top, but they do possess enough to earn some job satisfaction.
To satiate the guy with his pants down, the guys on the bottom have to be willing to "do whatever it takes." The bottom guys are, unfortunately, considered to be "a dime a dozen." Disposable. Basic needs make these guys remain in their positions.
Yep, that's how it goes. A man has to have work. And, it seems, the guys on the very bottom do ultimately get fucked. (Surrender, Dorothy.) Isn't that how it always goes in the end?
