Abstract or Description

“The Gift in Lube: Erotics of Facilitation” is first and foremost a question of how we might think the difference between entities as lubricious, as a wet mediation which enables new movements, gestures and openings between bodies implicated in the landscapes of sex and power. This is a paper fascinated by the material potentiality of lubrication and lubricity, and how lube might present itself as a substance that challenges preconceptions of the body, interrogates its limits, and approaches the ontological question of being differently.
