Re: <nettime> Sex Work and Consent at @transmediale

Morlock, your comment is pithy, but it's a bullshit comparison.  Just
because it sounds good doesn't mean it's true.  Access to the body is much
more intimate than access to the brain.

since when is the brain *not* totally unified w/ the body and vice versa? [despite Descartes is pumping his fist in the air, "yeah, keep 'em separate! it keeps ma dream alive"] I'm waiting to see consciousness/brain/mind existing without said body in complete continuous connection... Entering the body occurs through any receptive field of the Self, and I'd call it the very definition of intimacy when one is expressing energies that are entering an Other's body *and changing the neurosensory system itself,* for that effect is to change how the Other experiences the world...
