Significance of the story

Men are dominant over women, especially in the case of Tom, who asserts his physical strength to subdue them. The only hint of a role reversal is in the pair of Nick and Jordan. Jordan's androgynous name and cool, collected style masculinize her more than any other female character. I think we can still relate to the fact that sex, power, and control rmain strong forces in gender relationships today.
