Audrey: That's why the university needs to establish and enforce a mandate of verbal consent. Juliette: I understand how such a thing would protect the university, but I don't see how sex itself would survive. Audrey: Why not? Juliette: Because I'm afraid the articulate is the enemy of the erotic. Isn't the whole point that you don't know what your love will do next, that you give yourself over to a sensory experience that you haven't planned and can't control? The reason I like sex is because I can finally, for a moment, turn off my neurotic mind, and just be consumed. If I give my lover permission, yes, no, touch me, not there, don't I undermine the potency of his desire?
