    What does this Don Draper quote mean?

    he says ""Ken, you'll realize in your private life that at a certain point seduction is over and force is actually being requested"

    what does 'force is actually being requested' mean?


    You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.

    I asked my girlfriend what does she think it means, she never seen the TV show,
    From Madmen, in one episode Don Draper says this quote to one of the younger guys at the firm:

    "Ken, you'll realize in your private life that at a certain point seduction is over and force is actually being requested"

    What do you think it means??
    here is her answer:
    "wait, does this relate to women? in which case it makes sense. that the woman would want to be dominated. the word "force" sounds a little too caveman-ish, but whatever."

    the "private life" part is what throws me. Sounds to me like he's saying at some point you have to stop seducing yourself into doing things, and just man up and do them. force yourself to just do it, don't try to talk yourself into doing it.

    Why does this sound like an English class in High School?
