“People seem to keep bumping up against each other with their exteriors and falling away from each other. ..Many people pursue sex precisely because it is a mystique of the overcoming of the separateness of the inner world;” – they go from one partner to another because they can never quite achieve ‘it.’ So the endless interrogations: ‘What are you thinking about right now—me? Do you feel what I feel? Do you love me?”


“in a love relationship, intense sexual enjoyment is necessarily followed by an act (or rather process) of re-subjectification ..through which the beloved ..re-emerges as a singular, vulnerable, ..fragile human being.” – SLAVOJ ZIZEK
