Not this particular Stalinist or close-to-it. I am in disagreement with
Adolfo and Gina on this issue. I think that there is nothing inherently
exploitative about sex, and nothing wrong with enjoying sex. I greatly enjoy
sex and understand not why I as a woman would be expected not to enjoy it.
It's fun and loving and a whole lot of other wonderful things. I have always
felt respected by men with whom I have engaged in sexual relations. This
being nothing against gays and lesbians, I simply happen to be heterosexual.
There is nothing wrong with liking and desiring sex with whomever one
pleases, or more than one whomever. There is nothing anti-revolutionary,
imperialist, or fascist about pleasure and desire. I have great respect for
both Adolfo and Gina, but on this issue I must disagree. Comradely, charlotte
