Milan Kundera, fragment from Slowness (On orgasms and slowness)

Andre Kertesz

… I recall an American woman from thirty years ago, with her stern, committed style, a kind of apparatchik of eroticism, who gave me a lecture (chillingly theoretical) on sexual liberation; the word that came up more often in her talk was “orgasm”; I counted: forty-three times. The religion of orgasm: utilitarianism projected into sex life; efficiency versus indolence; coition reduced to an obstacle to be past as quickly as possible in order to reach an ecstatic explosion, the only true goal of love-making and of the universe.

Where has the pleasure of slowness disappeared?...

-Milan Kundera
