Foucault
1926 -- France: Harley-Semiotic?: French biker-philosopher Michel Foucault lives, Poitiers. Conceptual historian of madness, prisons, sexuality, identity politics.

A letter to Ann Landers from "Housewife from Maine" asked about oral sex: "Does it mean they just talk about it?," she wanted to know, or was something more involved?

"Housewife from Maine" was righter than she knew: sexuality is "oral" in our culture, in the precise sense that it is continually being channeled into discourse... Foucault's endeavor is to make us aware how limited our imaginations really are, especially when it comes to sexuality. As Deleuze says, paraphrasing Spinoza, we still do not know what our bodies can do. Even our wildest s&m fantasies are all too often trite & formulaic. Thus Foucault ultimately concludes that,


"Sex is boring."
