Against the Couple Form #2: Intimacy

  • SoundCloud - Black Circle

"Libidinal flows cut through the social world.”


Desire, sensuality, romance, sex — they dont exist in a vacuum, somehow free from the politics that dictate our public lives.


"Desire flows and circulates amongst places of employment, intellectual debates, political organizing, artistic circles, playgrounds, and cemeteries.”


Post-couple form, we began to look elsewhere for connection. In this episode we’re guided by our burning questions: Can touching your friends be sensual, without being sexual? Can friendships be fluid — romantic one day, and not the next? What is the boundary between friendship and romance? Is there a boundary at all?


INTIMACY is part 2 of a three part series on our search for solidarity and intimacy.

This episode includes excerpts from “Against the Couple Form” by Clemence X. Clementine & Associates from the Infinite Venom Girl Gang in LIES Vol. I, voiced by Mandy Harris Williams.
