The big thing that struck me in this play was not that everyone was having sex, but rather how it was happening. In every part of the play there was always someone who was craving and another who was willing, and it seems that in the next part of the play, the roles would be reversed (the soldier went form willing to craving for example). This reminds me of a disease, and it could be argued that prostitution is a disease, especially in the 1900s in Vienna. Although taboo, it is allowed, but only draws more people in, as if it is slowly destroying the society. I saw a similar thing happen in "Reigen" with characters at the end being hurt, but then in the next scene being the cravers that end up hurting the other character in the scene.
