    ....Zamyatin's novel We, where the government gives you tickets for sexy-time and only then allows you to draw the curtains in your (literally) glass house.

    Of course, the ungrateful bastards use the time to plot a revolution, not to screw.

    •  I'd say closer to 1984, actually. (2+ / 0-)

      We had the tickets, but on a vastly shorter time scale.

      1984? The government is watching you in bed, literally - and if you turn the lights off, they'll be watching in the glow of the telescreen you can't turn off and listening to every sound you, your spouse, and your squeaky bedframe make. Your children are members of the Junior Anti-Sex League and judging you constantly for having had sex. Your spouse may be a former member of the Junior Anti-Sex League and/or only having sex as a duty to the state. And the government is so interested in cutting sex out of the equation entirely that 'artsem' is a distinct vocabulary term in Newspeak.
