THE SMELL OF SEX, THE SMELL OF DEATH

“Exfetido purus” (Purity arises from the stench).

We like life, above all in its most physical expression, sex. No one likes thinking about old age, and even worse, mental degeneration, because it reminds us of death, in fact something worse, decay.

Nevertheless none of us will ever be a hypermuscular model or sex bomb. I certainly hope no one will suffer from dementia, but we'll all go a bit into our second childhood. But we don't like thinking about it, not even a bit because we prefer dreams and illusions to harsh reality, and there's nothing wrong in it.
