““I do not know what I am for the Other, since I am what I am only for the Other”. This uncertainty defines the subject” – And the position of the masochist pervert is ultimately an attempt to elude this uncertainty, which is why it involves the loss of the status of the subject, i.e., a radical self-objectivization: the pervert knows what he is for the Other, since he posits himself as the object-instrument of the Other’s jouissance.
