A pleasure tool, an extension of my energy, attached to my clit, it is something that does not become flaccid or shrivel up… it exists to make a woman come, to give her pleasure… and does not come out or come down until she says it does according to her orgasmic wax and wane.
The simultaneous acts of deprivileging the phallus and removing it from the normative heterosexual form of exchange, and recirculating and reprivileging it between women deploys the phallus to break the signifying chain in which it congenitally operates.
The phantastmatic status of “having” is redelineated, rendered transferable, substitutable, plastic; and the eroticism produced within such an exchange depends on the displacement from traditional masculinist contexts as well as the critical redeployment of its central figures of power.
