Sexuality Can Be Said To Pervade Life Throughout:” Simone DeBeauvoir

“Sexuality most certainly plays a central role in human life; it can be said to pervade life throughout. We have already learned from physiology that the living activity of the testes and the ovaries is integrated with that of the body in general. The existent is a sexual, a sexuate, and in his relations with other existents who are also sexuate bodies, sexuality as a consequence is always involved.”
