From the essay: 'A woman is being pimped by a man when their relationship
is contingent on her engaging in prostitution and relinquishing all or part
earnings to him. The relationship is defined and controlled by the pimp for his economic gain. Since he typically appropriates all of the woman's money and she receives only 'non-negotiable goods' in return, the woman becomes financially
dependent on him and unable to save for an independent future.
Even when a woman receives costly gifts from her pimp (providing the illusion
of prosperity) he will typically retain or destroy her property when she
impeding her from accumulating any wealth.
An examination of the power dynamics between pimp and prostitute clearly
illustrates how the tactics of power and control used to recruit and keep
a woman trapped in prostitution closely parallels those used by batterers
to ensure the compliance of their wives or intimate partners. These tactics
include isolation of the woman; minimization and denial of her abuse; the
exertion of male privilege;
threats and intimidation; and emotional, sexual, and physical abuse.'

Analyse any human emotion, no matter how far it may be removed from the sphere of sex, and you are sure to discover somewhere the primal impulse, to which life owes its perpetuation. ... The primitive stages can always be re-established; the primitive mind is, in the fullest meaning of the word, imperishable. ... Mans most disagreeable habits and idiosyncrasies, his deceit, his cowardice, his lack of reverence, are engendered by his incomplete adjustment to a complicated civilisation. It is the result of the conflict between our instincts and our culture. (Sigmund Freud)
