This Sex Which Is Not One.

Within the vast amounts of information I am trying to sort through for this essay, I rediscovered Luce Iragaray. She has this to say about woman and her pleasure, how it differs from man's in the masculine normalised society we live in;

"As for woman, she touches herself in and of herself without any need for mediation, and before there is any way to distinguish between activity from passivity. Woman "touches herself" all the time, and moreover no one can forbid her to do so, for her genitals are formed of two lips in continuous contact. Thus, within herself, she is already two-but not divisible into one(s)-that caress each other."
