Luxury is a roomy shower with plenty of hot water and a non-slippery
floor. A gold-plated faucet really doesn't make it luxurious, just ugly.
Luxery might be to buy a golden faucet, even if that means that one has to cut short on space and hot water. Or, spoken with Oscal Wilde’s words: “Let me be surrounded by luxury.I can do without the necessities!“
(But I’d prefer the hot water, too.)
For gender balance, have a Gertrude Stein (or Sophie Tucker or Mae West) quote:
"I've been rich and I've been poor. Believe me, honey, rich is better."
Good luck at FOSDEM 2012!
