"Whenever I see or hear the word 'dreadful'

I think wonderful,"
wrote Elias Khoury in White Masks.

Expiring during intimate congress
might be a beautiful death for a man,
but not so wonderful for a woman still living.

Ovid wrote that a man can be Truly Himself only in a Bedroom.
He was a free male, and was not considering mere women or slaves.

"I'd discovered a long time ago that 'the particulars' of a woman are only discovered during sex..." wrote Roberto Costantini in The Deliverance of Evil.
I have discovered that it is 'during sex' that you will find out the paucity and meanness of a man,
who may well be revealing a part of his True Self - but still only a part,
for "sex" itself is only a very small part of our lives and our activity,
however much we may fixate upon it.

Hail, Diogenes! Many useful references. The art of philosophy is the metacognitive flash that explains everything, i.e., the particular as general, and vice versa. The danger of philosophy is to posit solipsism.
