“Our sexuality has been animalized, stripped of the intricacy of feeling with which human beings have endowed it, leaving us to contemplate only the act, and to fear our impotence in it. It is this animalization from which the sexual manuals cannot escape, even when they try to do so, because they are reflections of it. They might [as well] be textbooks for veterinarians.”

“Lust is not interested in its partners, but only in the gratification of its own craving, not in the satisfaction of whole natures, but only in the appeasement of an appetite that we are unable to subdue. Lust dies at the next dawn, and when it returns in the evening, to search where it may, it is with its own past erased.”
