“He said that one could learn in a brothel that there is no difference between what costs money and what doesn’t. He masturbated in the marketplace, saying that he wished it were as easy to relieve hunger by rubbing his empty stomach.”
– Simon Critchley on Diogenes, Book of Dead Philosophers

Indeed! Unfortunately, when that sort of thing happens on the subway, as it sometimes does, the passengers find it neither erotic nor epistemic, but ennoyously enorganic enough to move to a different car. I personally don’t mind, unless the train is very full, in which case I admit, I turn prudish and try to elbow my way into the seat furthest away.
