The Commander speaks of liasons between men and women as natural..... women, of course, only exist to serve men's needs. That is how he describes their presence, and the presence of others, at the hotel. In regard to the women's clothing..... the Playboy bunny outfit says it all and supports what the Commander believes to be natural. Playboy bunnies were (and are) objects to look at.... they exist to please men.
