“Far from being ‘natural,’ phallic sexuality is a moral and political activity…

Men’s sexual behaviour is not caused by hormonal dictates. It is because the penis serves the ideological function of symbolizing ‘human’ status that it is so heavily charged with erotic energy, and not because it is driven by testosterone. Men must keep using it because they need to keep proving that they exist, that their ‘humanity’ is inextricably entwined with penis-possession; women must be constantly used by it to prove that men exist, that the sum total of a man is his penis…

Anything and everything must be subordinated to penile activity if men are to be what phallic ideology requires them to be.”
