Theatre History Lesson

"The devil is compromise."
                                   -Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen is my favorite playwright. His plays are filled with ideas of absolutes, all or nothing, duty versus happiness and universal truths.

Henrik Ibsen would have hated thong underwear. There is no commitment in a thong. It is not all or nothing, it says "I am sort of naked but I am not," it is  "I am being sexy but modest and gross at the same time," and 

"I don’t want my panty line to show but I want my cooch sheilded by wafer-thin fabric. This protects me, that shields me. But my ass is having a party.”

Sounds like a compromise, Ibsen would never wear such undergarments. 

I bet he didn't wear any.

Or twelve pairs at a time.
