A man's eroticism is a woman's sexuality.
Erotica is simply high-class pornography; better produced, better conceived, better executed, better packaged, designed for a better class of consumer.
Eroticism has its own moral justification because it says that pleasure is enough for me; it is a statement of the individual's sovereignty.
Eroticism is assenting to life even in death.
Eroticism is like a dance: one always leads the other.
In this loveless everyday life eroticism is a substitute for love.
