I finished reading The Possibility of an Island a week ago.
There is a great and almost childish emphasis on the bliss of the insertion of the phallus in the vulva.
The most misogynist joke ever is in the novel:
“How do we call the fat around the vagina? Woman.”
“The sexual life of man can be broken down into two phases: the first when he prematurely ejaculates, and the second when he can no longer manage to get a hard-on.”
Above: a clip from the film based on the novel, directed by Houellebecq himself. It show the bikini contest at the beginning of the film. The film has the meager IMDb score of 3.5. Nevertheless I’d very much like to see it.
