HumanSexuality_commonSexuality as seduction in marriage
We have arrived, then, at the problem of marriage and the familiarity which it brings about. Can sexual seduction operate in this familiarity, inside the known and the acquis? Obviously, no! Seduction is non-familiarity, alienation, inequality. Seduction cannot flourish within the framework of the familiar, and for this reason marriage goes through a sexual crisis from its inception.

180px-the moon luc viatourWe are not speaking here about a retrogressive society where information has no place, where there is no relative freedom, or, generally, those features which can make a person 'universal' in comparison with the past. We are talking about the Czech Republic (and, unfortunately, not that country alone). Recently, when its President took over the presidency of the EU, he made his entrance with an art exhibition - both 'cheeky' and eccentric - which dealt with the faults and prejudices of the countries of Europe.
