Refers to any case where Big Brother hypocritically "talks out of both sides of his mouth" in the management/oversight of certain economic policies; i.e., the Government loudly claims to approve/disapprove of a certain practice/behavior, yet they tax you or charge you extra if you actually "do the right thing" in that instance.
A classic example of "propriety-penalty" is the marriage-tax, whereby two people who marry are collectively charged more than twice the amount of income-tax that just one of them would have to pay "on his own", and government-provided financial assistance (i.e., Social Security, SSI Disability, etc.) that two benefits-eligible people receive is significantly reduced if they get married instead of merely practicing the socially-frowned-upon "co-habitating without a wedding band" living-arrangement... in both cases, you get "financially penalized" for "doing the right thing"! It's little wonder that so few couples --- especially the younger ones who might be required to pay income tax if their earnings are high enough --- want to "tie the knot" nowadays; these destructive monetary policies actually **encourage** love-birds to "misbehave" in this way.

Etiquette of Modern Day Love Making. Titty Proprietybreast ownership comes about when a male lover or sexual partner proclaims the female sexual partner's breasts as his own, maybe forever or as long as the session lasts. Often the female partner will, as a maneuver to enhance the male arousal complex, tell the male that her breasts are his, only his, or some other foreplay dialogue nonsense to stimulate the heat of the moment. She may really intend for her words to be true....or not. And he may have the same notion. Afterall, we live in the Age of 2000+ when we were promised to all be driving flying cars, or pigs.
