2/07/2005 01:05:00 am - How to fall into a woman's arms without falling into her hands


Found Georges Bataille Electronic Library while googling "Georges Bataille". I clicked on PervScan, and chanced upon an article by Sebastian Horsley on his love for prostitutes, an article I had read earlier from Arts & Letters (a highly recommended site) .

Here are some controversial excerpts:
The great thing about sex with whores is the excitement and variety. If you say you're enjoying sex with the same person after a couple of years you're either a liar or on something. Of all the sexual perversions, monogamy is the most unnatural. Most of our affairs run the usual course. Fever. Boredom. Trapped. This explains much of the friction in our lives - love being the delusion that one woman differs from another. But with brothels there is always the exhilaration of not knowing what you're going to get.

...
The problem with normal sex is that it leads to kissing and pretty soon you've got to talk to them. Once you know someone well the last thing you want to do is screw them.

...
What I hate are meaningless and heartless one-night stands where you tell all sorts of lies to get into bed with a woman you don't care for.

...The worst things in life are free. Value seems to need a price tag. How can we respect a woman who doesn't value herself? When I was young I used to think it wasn't who you wanted to have sex with that was important, but who you were comfortable with socially and spiritually. Now I know that's rubbish. It's who you want to have sex with that's important. In the past I have deceived the women I have been with. You lie to two people in your life; your partner and the police. Everyone else gets the truth.

...Of course, the general feeling in this country is that the man is somehow exploiting the woman, but I don't believe this. In fact, the prostitute and the client, like the addict and the dealer, is the most successfully exploitative relationship of all. And the most pure. It is free of ulterior motives. There is no squalid power game. The man is not taking and the woman is not giving. The whore fuck is the purest fuck of all.

...
What I want is the sensation of sex without the boredom of its conveyance. Brothels make possible contacts of astounding physical intimacy without the intervention of personality. I love the artificial paradise; the anonymity; using money, the most impersonal instrument of intimacy to buy the most personal act of intimacy. Lust over love, sensation over security, and to fall into a woman's arms without falling into her hands.

...
To pay for sex is to strip away the veneer of artifice and civilisation and connect with the true animal nature of man. Some men proudly proclaim that they have never paid for it. Are they saying that money is more sacred than sex?

..So you see, I have always been a prostitute by sympathy. As for the rest of society, prostitution is the mirror of man, and man has never been in danger of becoming bogged down in beauty. So why don't we leave it alone? Or learn to love it, like me? Sex is one of the most wholesome, spiritual and natural things money can buy. And like all games, it becomes more interesting when played for money. And even more so when it is illegal. Hookers and drunks instinctively understand that common sense is the enemy of romance.

...
Yes, yes, I know. Prostitution is obscene, debasing and disgraceful. The point is, so am I.
I've never quite heard it put this way before. As this post at PervScan puts it:
If you're a john, go read it for the fun of seeing somebody say in print the things you've thought to yourself but wouldn't dare to admit. (Try this one: "The problem with normal sex is that it leads to kissing and pretty soon you've got to talk to them. Once you know someone well the last thing you want to do is screw them.") If you're not a john, go read it to question why you're not. ("Some men proudly proclaim that they have never paid for it. Are they saying that money is more sacred than sex?") If you're a woman who's never been a sex worker, go read it for a glimpse of the male psyche — if you dare. And if you're a woman who's been involved in the flesh trade, don't bother — because you already know.
I would love to know how people feel about this. Comments anyone?
