Like the paintings, Offred feels she is like "objects not in use." She is an object and she is board. She wonders if men find this submissive act of indifference erotic. 

But maybe boredom is erotic, when women do it, for men.

What about me, I like something to represent, to dream, to visualize. I look at the picture and imagine what it will come to life, I watch porn and imagine what it does to me, if you want to see something decent, you go here, you will not regret
