Product Description

"Our first issue of the year is an inquiry into intimacy in its many forms. We decided on this topic the last week of summer, the first time we sat down with our new editorial team. 'We don't share intimacy yet,' said one of our editors, `intimacy needs time to grow.' Yet, looking back, that first meeting was perhaps as intimate as it gets; nervous introductions, how-was-your-summer's, testing waters, sharing ideas, enthusiasm, and doubts as well. 'How do we define the intimate?' Won't it be too much like Simulacrum's Love issue?' What's the difference between love and intimacy anyway?'
From these questions, ideas of intimacies started to take shape: those on the threshold between public and private, in languages between lovers, those differing from the hetero-and homonormative, the intimacies shared with oneself. Through touch and writing, poetry and myth, economic systems and modes of play, the subconscious and the atten-tive; the divergent approaches the eleven contributors of this issue have taken give us a glimpse of the endless ways in which the spectrum of intimate experience can be explored, exercised, and rethought.
