: I could, I could ask him to hit me, or ask for a hand job...

Not if he doesnt want to be your audience.

: That is what happens anyway in human society, in the form of conscience, habit, "teh neighbours", etc.

Uneforcable in any punitive sense. Some people dotn care if the Jones' frown upon them. Its not the same as witholding the means to live.

: but since he is also teh all, it doesn't matter, in the end, it means simply he myust live his life through negotiation and co-operation, based on the simple premise that he may not employ the labour of otehrs to gain personal wealth.

A premise few believe in, not because they are vicious but because people recognise that they are dealing to mutual advantage. Also to say 'youre the all' as a way of showing that being forever beholden to anyone with an opinion an what you should do is no real help to the oppressed who lives walking on his knees and having to ask permission from goodness knows who to seek the means to his survival and happiness. Horrible.

: It does, significantly, since I don't own myself, and since my self is a social product, even my direct sensory inputs are mediated by society, pace David Hume.

You dont belong to others, even if you would like to you dont, even if you offer then its only 'real' if they accept the ownership. People are not eachothers material
