Desire looks at emotion, at love, at being human. It feels and envelopes. It is happy and powerful, strong and feminine. Desire is a counter to cutting to cure ‘female hysteria’ as happened to women in the Victorian times in the UK. Desire is counter to the cultural practices of rendering a woman an eternal girl child who needs to be protected from feeling who must be smooth, who must be clean.
