Trespassers Will Not Be Prosecuted

Fig. 1. Max Ernst - Les Malheurs des Immortels, 1922

'Eroticism differs from animal sexuality in that human sexuality is limited by taboos, and the domain of eroticism is that of the transgression of these taboos. Desire in eroticism is the desire that triumphs over the taboo. It presupposes man in conflict with himself.'

Georges Bataille (Eroticism: Death and Sensuality)
