this avatar it could be someone straddling in a sex act. The explicit connotation though reflects rather than an idyllic eroticism from a feminine or female view - any autonomy or implication of autonomy of body is postured in the perception that AMOR or LOVE, performs exclusively for one (as in you/ man). Love is constituted as as sexually male, but rather than being virile or active - even if they seem to be actively engaging seducing or performing the rites of sex AMOR is performing the subjective conditions in which the subjugated or submissive is equally expected through

- conditioning and allowed to perform the gesture of love, through the erotic. Love is not the fraternal in this instance, it does not posit two bodies as equals, although the title would merit a reading that as implied love is victorious - but LOVE appears as a sexualised non-human entity - non human in that they appear to be close to human - but have an unexpected appendage or addage much like Medusa.
