This is not a love letter

"I read over your letters again and again, and am continually taking them up as if I had just received them; but alas! They only serve to make me more strongly regret your absence: for how amiable must her conversation be, whose letters have so many charms?" Pliny the Younger, Epistulae, 6.7 [Translation William Melmoth 1915]

Is this a love letter? Or is it something else entirely?

Call for Presentations 2016
Thursday 21st January – Saturday 23rd January 2016
London, United Kingdom

Traces of the erotic are all around us, embodied in images, music, advertising, stories, inter-personal interactions, dreams and desires. Whether expressed in symbolic or literal form, the erotic has captured human imagination across time and cultures, shaping our understanding and experience of pleasure and intimacy along the way. While there is no denying that the erotic has an irresistible appeal, it is also viewed as a taboo to be suppressed or hidden.
