“All sex was prostitution for both participants, not always in the commercial sense, but in the deeper etymological sense that they stood in for something else.  The fact that this was sometimes done so effectively that there were weeks or months in which the object of desire and the person one happened to be in bed with seemed identical could not prevent the underlying model of desire from beginning to drift away, sooner or later, from its illusory home.” — Edward St. Aubyn, Mother’s Milk
