Then if he says he loves you,
It fits your wisdom so far to believe it
As he in his particular act and place
May give his saying deed; which is no further
Than the main voice of Denmark goes withal.
Then weigh what loss your honour may sustain,
If with too credent ear you list his songs,
Or lose your heart, or your chaste treasure open
To his unmaster’d importunity.

– William Shakespeare

Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 3. Laertes warns Ophelia that she will stain her reputation if she gives up her virginity to Hamlet. When he speaks of opening her “chase treasure,” this is a metaphor for losing her prized and precious virginity. Ophelia’s brother is being misogynistic here as he puts the burden of shame on her and not Hamlet if she surrenders to Hamlet’s persistent seductions.
