Example text

Adult ooloi, as one construct comments, are ‘more different than Humans realized’ (Butler 1989: 544). indd 35 31/05/2011 09:13 36 Deleuze and Sex manipulation, which makes men feel that they are being ‘taken like a woman’ [Butler 1989: 202]). Male and female Oankali have two arms, but ooloi have an additional two ‘sensory arms’ through which they can form direct neurochemical connections with humans and other Oankali. Via these connections, ooloi are able to heal, modify human anatomy, perform genetic repairs, and bring about interspecies reproduction.

(Butler 1989: 162) Lilith and Joseph’s union follows the pattern of increasing excitation, climax and satiation typical of genital-induced orgasm, but their ‘hypersex’ takes place without physical contact, and there is no indication that genitalia or any other body parts are the sites of focused intensity. Though ooloi bring human and Oankali couples together in what appears to be sexual orgasm, the ooloi also induce profound pleasure when healing humans and Oankali, and it is not clear that the healing pleasure is qualitatively different from the pleasure induced through sexual activity.

It would seem, then, that the distinction between sexual and non-sexual pleasure, at least in ooloi relations with humans and Oankali, is provisional at best. When the ooloi Nikanj approaches Joseph to join with Lilith in a male-female-ooloi sexual linkage, Nikanj tries to assuage Joseph’s fears and reassure him by saying, ‘ “I won’t hurt you. And I offer a oneness that your people strive for, dream of, but can’t truly attain alone”’ (Butler 1989: 189).
