His premise is that powerful men have been enjoying their status to get tail since the dawn of mankind (indeed-y we’re pretty sure it’s the basis of culture and hard work) and that when everyone (we point the finger at you, society) is on the same page it works out. The only think that’s required is a quick contract and then BLAM everyone's happy and every ass is covered, so to speak.
