From the cover:

"Jouissance is the driving élan of queer sex culture, and yet it is precisely that element of queer sex which still cannot be locked up in an industry, sold as commodity or scheduled at some mass commercialized ritual.

While each element of the sex industry attempts to resolve some fundamental lack and to integrate one's desires into a coherent subjective experience, jouissance is specifically that element of sexual desire which makes such a union impossible.

Jouissance is the unnameable desire that one hopelessly attempts to summarize before giving one's body to another: 'I want to be negated.'"
