Eroarticism differs from animal sexuality in that human sexuality is limited by taboos and the domain of eroticism is that of the transgression of these taboos. Desire in eroticism is the desire that triumphs over the taboo. It presupposes man in conflict with himself.
Man wants to live, but it is useless to hope that this desire will dictate all his actions.
"A man of such obvious and exemplary charm must be a liar."
