The Truth of the Beauty and the Beast

Legend has it there is always a reason why two souls meet.  ~  N.R. Hart

The tale of Beauty and the Beast is an allegory which has as much relevance today as it did when it was written in 1740, in French.  (La Belle et le Bête)  In fact this tale is just a retelling of many earlier stories that go back at least as far as 4,000 years ago.

In the tale a beautiful and kind young woman, we shall call Belle, is forced to live with a real Beast, (of some description, or type of wolf, or mythical creature, or bull), who constantly wants to have sex with Belle ~ which she not unnaturally refuses, (that would be real bestiality).

It transpires that the Beast is as rich as any King.

Money is power.  Power is an aphrodisiac.  ~  Felix Dennis

However, after spending several months in the lap of absolute luxury, being treated like a princess by the Beast and his servants, having her every whim catered for, and with an endless wardrobe of gorgeous clothes, shoes, and jewelry to wear, the beautiful young Belle finds an excuse to abandon the beast.  (For multifarious reasons, including a young, handsome lover ~ depending on which version of the tale you are reading).

Lost in his unrequited love for Belle, the Beast sickens in body, mind and spirit ~ isolates himself in some garret, or cave, or tower, and prepares to die.

After a while, wracked by guilt, or bored with her younger lover, or broke, Belle goes back to the Beast, finding the heartbroken monster in a terrible state.  Playing the dutiful partner, Belle nurses the Beast back to health, and they both return to their previous glittering lifestyle.

Even today, almost this exact same scenario is played out time and time again when a beautiful, exotic young woman dates / has a relationship with / marries some pretty ordinary looking / ugly much older man ~ and he will be fucking wealthy.

They seldom live happily ever after.

I’ll give you one example, the horrible Bernie Ecclestone, (the billionaire ex-head of F1 motor racing), and his then wife gorgeous, much taller, Tamara.

If money goes before, all ways do lie open.  ~  Shakespeare

Some say that money can’t buy you love.  And, that a sexually mature woman will want your love, time, attention, and money.  All I know is that enough money changes everything.
