1 Karina Eileraas SWMS 301 04/05/2017 Sexual Fantasy and Violence “These are the differences that move the skin, that explore the need inside a cunt and make sex possible.” (Amber Hollibaugh, p.226-7) In her article, Hollibaugh is referring to our different race, sex, and class as the main path that leads each one of us to our desires and our unique passion. She demonstrates that the way we were raised have a correlation with our sexual desires. In her point of view, fantasies is what makes our actual sex stronger, what pushes people’s limit and arousal. Hollibaugh is fighting for the women right of being sexual, and having fantasies without being sexualy abuse. That being safe will not go together with being a sexualy opressed woman. That having desire will not affect one’s name in a negative way. Sexual fantasies are erotic images or thoughts that often occur within the thought process of individuals thus leading to sexual arousal. Sexual violence, on the other hand, is the act of forcefully attempting or obtaining sexual favor without one's consent. Sexual fantasies and violence can have a very thin line in between them, they are intimately related to acts of sexual fantasies may prompt a person to engage in sexual violence acts. We can see both in the article by Hollibaugh, and in the film, Lila dit ca, that fantasies and violence many times come together.
