This male possesses valuable resources toward the purpose of procreating. Note, he is engaging in a purely recreational activity, with a female clinging to his back, and with no sign of danger but rather displaying herself as a symbol of pleasure and freedom from care. This illustrates the superfluousness of his resources to such a degree that they reach trivial, even immaterial pursuits, and for that he is rewarded by the trivial, immaterial display of this female presenting her sexuality within a public sphere. Shame is not an issue here, as she seeks to actually derive prestige from this uninhibited display, and thus this male's existential quandry is resolved, in the form of reproductive (if artificially obtained) validity.
Defamation by proxy yields your lowest form of flattery.
