“La Petite Mort” references Simone de Beauvoir’s description of climax – “We have seen that the act of love requires of woman profound self-abandonment; she bathes in passive languor; with closed eyes, anonymous, lost, she feels as if borne by waves, swept away in a storm, shrouded in darkness: darkness of the flesh, of the womb, of the grave. Annihilated, she becomes one with the whole, her ego is abolished. But when the man moves from her, she finds herself back on Earth, on a bed, in the light; she again has a name, a face: she is one vanquished, prey, object.” (The Second Sex, 216) – in the style of Rococo design.
