“Here is the dark side of 1960s ‘sexual liberation’: the full commodification of sexuality. . . . sex is an absolute necessity, to renounce it is to wither away, so love cannot flourish without sex; simultaneously, however, love is impossible precisely because of sex; sex which ‘proliferates as the epitome of late capitalism’s dominance, has permanently stained human relationships as inevitable reproductions of the dehumanizing nature of liberal society; it has essentially, ruined love.’”
– Slavoj Žižek, Violence: Six Sideways Reflection (New York: Verso, 2008), 35-36.
