Eroticism has this in common with an addictive drug: that there is a coercive element to its pleasure with which part of us is in complicity, and part not. Thus ever since time began men have been trying to enjoy eroticism without being destroyed by it. Societies, religions can be defined in the way they deal with this conundrum. Polygamy, monogamy with repression, monogamy with affairs, monogamy with prostitutes, serial monogamy. Not to mention individual solutions of great ingenuity, or desperation: Victor Hugo with the door knocked through the wall of his office, to let in a girl each afternoon. Auden's flair for finding call-boys in every town. Picasso who simply refused when wife and mistress demanded he choose between them. Then there is always the hair-shirt of course. But perhaps the thing to remember when you wake up with a life full of fresh paint and tortuous complications is that eroticism wasn't invented for you, nor merely for the survival of the species perhaps, but for a divinity's entertainment. Nothing generates so many opportunities for titillation and schadenfreude as eroticism. Which is why it lies at the centre of so much narrative. How the gods thronged the balconies of heaven to see the consequences of Helen's betrayal! And your friends are watching too. Your antics have put the shine on many a late-night conversation.

On the borders between mythology and history, that wily survivor Odysseus was the first who learnt to trick the gods. And perhaps his smartest trick of all was that of lashing himself to the mast before the Sirens came in earshot. There are those of course who are happy to stand at the railings, even scan the horizon. Otherwise, choose your mast, find the ropes that suit you: sport, workaholism, celibacy with prayerbook and bell... But the kindest and toughest ropes of all are probably to be found in some suburban semi-detached with rowdy children and a woman who never allows the dust to settle for too long.


Translation - Bulgarian
Еротичното влечение прилича по нещо на наркотик: в него се усеща примес на сладостна принуда, на която част от нас е готова да се отдаде, а друга част – да се противопостави. Ето защо откакто свят светува хората са се опитвали да се насладят на чувственото преживяване без да бъдат погълнати от него. Цели общества и религии дължат своя облик на начина, по който са разгадали тази гатанка. Полигамия, оковите на брака с една жена, съпруга и няколко любовници, брак и платена любов, серийна моногамия. Без да споменаваме индивидуалните решения на проблема, отличаващи се с особена находчивост или отчаяние: Виктор Юго с неговата врата, пробита в стената на работния кабинет, за да може всеки следобед да го посещава по едно момиче. Ентусиазмът, с който Одън изнамирал момчета на повикване във всеки град. Пикасо, който просто отказал да избира между жена си и любовницата, когато те настояли за отговор. Но освен голотата на прелюбодееца, съществува и власеницата на покаянието. Може би това, което човек следва да си припомни, когато се събуди в средата на един живот, нов като прясна боя и пълен от край до край с усложнения е, че еротичното влечение не е било измислено заради него, нито пък само и единствено като средство за продължение на рода. То съществува в името на божествената забава. Нищо не е в състояние да създаде толкова много възможности за гъделичкане на сетивата и изтънчено удоволствие от чуждото нещастие, както еротиката. И затова тя се намира в сърцето на толкова много повествования. Как са се трупали боговете по балконите на небесната ложа, нетърпеливи да научат какви ще са последствията от изневярата на Елена! Приятелите ти също не остават по-назад - твоите собствени изпълнения са запалили искрата на не един среднощен разговор.

На граничната черта между митология и историческа истина, лукавият и жилав Одисей е бил първият, който е открил как да измами боговете. И може би най-хитроумният му трик е бил да се завърже към мачтата преди Сирените да се приближат на едно ухо разстояние. Разбира се, има и друг подход – да се изправим до борда, отправили търсещ взор към хоризонта. Ако ли не - изборът е ясен: харесайте си мачта и въже, което Ви подхожда: спорт, работа от сутрин до мрак, целомъдрие на дело и слово с молитвеника под мишница и камбани в главата... Ала най-мекото и яко въже може да бъде намерено в някоя от спретнатите къщурки в предградията - с една сюрия мили проклети дечица и покорна жена, която никога не ще остави праха да уседне по мебелите.

To Keep Your Marriage Brimming
Ogden Nash (1902-1971)

To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you are wrong admit it;
Whenever you are right shut up.

Огдън Наш (1920-1971)

любим да бъдеш, също и любящ,
ако сгрешиш, признай си пред жената,
а прав ли си, затваряй си устата.
