"Anyone who behaves obscenely, even if only in literary description, reveals himself as a mixture of human being and sex-object. Which is, by the way, part of the fun."  (Christian Enzensberger, Smut: An Anatomy of Dirt)

"The fact is that a person does not wish to purge himself of the world, as it first appeared, but of his own difference from society. If he is thoroughly absorbed into society with no conflicts, then (he himself admits) everything is in order; if not, then he must attend to the matter as speedily as possible; and if necessary he will clean himself away. So dependent is he on the outside world for his own definition, and does not realize it."  (Christian Enzensberger, Smut: An Anatomy of Dirt)
