    The speaker contorts the carpe diem sentiment by creating an overwhelming sense of urgency and playing on the fears of growing old in order to pressure his lover into an intimate and sacred act that is supposed to represent a selfless giving of oneself to another.

    I chose this gif because it represents how the speaker only takes his lustful needs into account while ignoring the discomfort of his lover. Her feelings are disregarded as secondary to his and cast aside as “prudish,” a testament to the toxicity he exudes upon their relationship.
