Goodnight, peeping Tom is a performative work that aspire to prove a thesis: the sexual desire roots is a sentimental boost, a romantic request.
According to the legend, peeping Tom was punished with blindness because he dared watching Lady Godiva through a hole in the window as she was riding naked through her city's street as a sign of protest for high taxation.
Tom was punished because of his gaze, because of his desire.
Tom became peeping Tom and thus any thought of perversion was associated to him.
Now I wish to make him a present, to compensate him for an injustice: ten minutes to take pleasure out of the image of his desire; ten minutes to watch and hear it.
