Sei es im Anamnesegespräch, bei der körperlichen Untersuchung oder der Diskussion von Differentialdiagnosen. Internationale Ärzte stellt die Arbeit in deutschen Kliniken und Praxen vor eine besonders große Aufgabe, da sie sich sowohl in der fachspezifischen Ausdrucksweise als auch mit kulturellen Besonderheiten der Sprache zurechtfinden müssen.

See also his fine discussion of ihe erotic attractions of North Africa for Gide, pp. 53-65. Philippe Lejeune in his book Exercices d'ambiguite, pp. 18-39, offers close readings of passages from Si le grain ne mzurl. Many of his analyses have been suggestive to me and are relevant to what I discuss here. Watching Sex in Si le grain ne meurt 25 watch others having sex, but he is not enthusiastic about being watched himself. This is not (or not only) due to some easily dismissed prudery. I would like to suggest that for Gide the acknowledged presence of a third person (such as his maid) during sex would threaten, through something called Nachtmghchkeit, to introduce politics into the sexual moment itself, to deny that moment the purity of its sensation.

The more one calls attention to it, then, the better. Bersani's critical attack on those who indulge in "a certain refusal to speak frankly about gay sex" (221) is one I sympathize with, and I am consequently after a certain franchise in the performance of this chapter. But Bersani's claim that puissance could somehow represent the true nostos, the "hygienic" return to selfless sensation, is a claim whose particular rhetorical structure needs close scrutiny. It is with an eye to that end that I turn to the strategies and problems of describing sex.
