    What is the difference between love and desire?

    Love and desire relate and conflict:

    Love is: When you care, worry, feel responsible for someone. You want to minimize threats, reduce the distance, and nurture them.
    Desire is: an expression of freedom and autonomy. Many can feel freer with people they are less emotionally involved in. Why do women like the bad boys? You don’t have to worry about him – don’t’ feel safe with him, but it’s freeing in terms of desire.

    I can’t get no satisfaction, but at least I can own my desire!

    You can never force them to want. It remains our fundamental sovereignty, our fundamental freedom is in desire. But desire has become a centralized principle of modern life. In that sense, we are in a society today that constantly cultivates our wantings and then exorts us to satisfying our wantings. We are in the culture of desire. Desire goes hand in hand with the consumer society. Though it existed separately from it as well. That’s one definition, there are so many ways, the poets have tried forever to define desire.

    Be sure to read Esther’s full post where she also adds more details (in response to Gail Saltz’s remarks) about the satisfaction aspect:
