Male sexuality is inherently manic-depressive. Androgen agitates.
Men are in a constant state of sexual anxiety, living on the pins and
needles of their hormones. In sex as in life they are driven *beyond* --
beyond the self, beyond the body. Even in the womb this rule applies.
Every fetus is female unless it is steeped in male hormone produced by a
signal from the developing fetus's gonads. Before birth, the male is
already exiled from the female, exiled from the center of life. They are
born knowing they are sexual exiles. They wander the earth seeking
satisfaction, craving, never content. There is nothing in the anguished
*motion* of men for women to envy.
