Journal, October 6, 1976 PM

<I wrote a letter to Sofia today, one in which I gave her some heavy philosophy about why it is impossible to possess another person, physically or otherwise.> I wonder how she’ll take to that! I even got down to basics and told her the orgasm takes away the desire, but doesn’t fulfill it. It’s true, I borrowed the treatment from Sartre, but it certainly holds in my limited sexual experience. The Spanish have a word for sexual love that I like, “incertidumbre”. You can never be fully satisfied, just experience a release of tension and a pleasant weakness & exhaustion.
