    “Sexual attraction and beauty was always there but today is is a highly conscious and reflected part of mate selection. Historically, sex was not a legitimate way to choose a partner, today attractiveness and viewing the person as sexy, often trumps values like good character or intelligent. This profoundly changes the rules of the romantic mating market. And market it has become.” — Eva Illouz, from “Why Love hurts”

    The old are kind.

    The young are hot.

    Love may be blind.

    Desire is not.

    “Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it…It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.” — Erica Jong

    “The whole fauna of human fantasies, their marine vegetation, drifts and luxuriates in the dimly lit zones of human activity, as though plaiting thick tresses of darkness. Here, too, appear the lighthouses of the mind, with their outward resemblance to less pure symbols. The gateway to mystery swings open at the touch of human weakness and we have entered the realms of darkness. One false step, one slurred syllable together reveal a man’s thoughts.” — Louis Aragon

    Quote of the Month: Eroticism

    “[Eroticism is] the poetry of the body, the testimony of the senses. Like a poem, it is not linear, it meanders and twists back on itself, shows us what we do not see with our eyes, but in the eyes of our spirit. Eroticism reveals to us another world, inside this world. The senses become servants of the imagination, and let us see the invisible and hear the inaudible.” – Octavio Paz
