Jouissance is the unconscious and never immediately felt form of pleasure. ..Pleasure is the ..feeling of psychic energy. ..Pleasure lies in a diminishing tension for the ego. Jouissance represents an increasing tension. ..Pleasure is the immediate feeling of an energy. – INTRODUCTION TO NASIO’S ‘FIVE LESSONS’

Jouissance ..manifests itself indirectly in the experience of an intolerable tension: Jouissance orrurs in limit-situations, when a rupture occurs. ..Jouissance, claims Nasio, is a permanent state, ..cosubstantial with life itself. – IBID.
