Ladies, Mr. Marx...

Our bourgeois, not content with having the wives and daughters of their proletarians at their disposal, not to speak of common prostitutes, take the greatest pleasure in seducing each other's wives.
Bourgeois marriage is in reality a system of wives in common and thus, at the most, what Communists might possibly be reproached with, is that they desire to introduce, in substitution for a hypocritically concealed, an openly legalized community of women. For the rest, it is self-evident that the abolition of the present system of production must bring with it the abolition of the community of women springing from that system, ie, of prostitution both public and private.

From The Communist Manifesto, by Karl Marx/Frederick Engels
Foreign Language Press, Peking. Third Printing. p.56

A "community of women"...sort of like a motor pool, or a supermarket.

"Uhh, yes, I think I'll try one of those, two of those and I'd like to return this one, thank you."
