I feel wanted, I feel desired (I can feel my soul on fire)

Salome. Highly influenced by Beardsley's work

(...) the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee. And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom. And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

I've always found interesting how female sexuality is demonized and turned into something to be feared.
