Sexual desire and eroticism were and still are considered today as a-philosophical, even anti-philosophical topics.

Is the language itself unable to capture such a subjective, qualitative — and physiological experience? And if some descriptive approach is still possible, what does appear to be at play when we question the origins of sexual desire?
