THE ECLIPTIC OF SEX

性愛的軌道

 

Nothing is less certain today than sex, behind the liberation of its discourse. And nothing today is less certain than desire, behind the proliferation of its images.

 

  今天沒有一樣東西比性愛更不穩定,在性愛學解放的背後。今天沒有一樣東西比慾望更不穩定,在慾望形象快速增加背後。

 

In matters of sex, the proliferation is approaching total loss. Here lies the secret of the ever increasing production of sex and its signs, and the hyperrealism of sexual pleasure, particularly feminine pleasure. The principle of uncertainty has extended to sexual reason, as well as political and economic reason.

 

在性愛的事件上,快速增加將接近全然喪失。性愛及其符號,性愛歡樂的超現實,特別是女性歡樂的不斷生產的秘密在此。

 

The state of sex’s liberation is also that of its indetermination. No more want, no more prohibitions, and no more limits: it is the loss of every referential principle. Economic reason is sustained only by penury; it is put into question with the realization of its objective, the abolition of the spectre of penury. Desire too is sustained only by want. When desire is entirely on the side of demand, when it is operationalized without

restrictions, it loses its imaginary and, therefore, its reality; it appears everywhere, but in generalized simulation. It is the ghost of desire that haunts the defunct reality of sex. Sex is everywhere, except in sexuality (Barthes).

 

  性愛解放的狀態也是性愛不確定的狀態。不再有欠缺,不再有禁制,不再有限制。這是每一個指標原則的喪失。只因為貧窮存在,經濟的理由才能維持。隨著經濟目標的實現,貧窮的魅影終告廢除。只因為欠缺存在,慾望也才能維持。當慾望完全在買方需求這邊,當慾望沒有限制地供應滿足,它喪失了它的非真實,因此也喪失它的真實。慾望似乎無所不在,但都是處於一般的模擬狀態。縈繞在性愛名存實亡的現實當中是慾望的魅影。性愛無所不在,除了作愛之外。(哲學家巴特名言)

 

In sexual mythology, the transition towards the feminine is contemporaneous with the passage from determination to general indetermination. The feminine is not substituted for the masculine as one sex for another, according to some structural inversion. It is substituted as the end of the determinate representation of sex, as the flotation of the law that regulates the difference between the sexes. The ascent of the feminine corresponds to both the apogee of sexual pleasure and a catastrophe relative to sex’s reality principle.

And so it is femininity that is gripping, in the present and fatal situation of sex’s hyperreality – as it was yesterday, but indirect contrast, in irony and seduction.

 

    在性愛神話裏,朝向女性的轉移,是跟穩定轉移到一般的不穩定的過程同時發生的。男性被女性代替不是當著一個性別代替另一個性別,依照某些結構的倒轉。而是當著性別穩定符號的終結,當著是規範兩性之間的差異的法則的浮動。女性的提升,跟性愛歡樂的淋漓盡致以及性愛現實原則相對的災難相一致。所以,在目前性愛的超現實的致命情況裡,如同在以前,具有吸引力的是女性,但是以間接的對比,以反諷跟誘拐。
