“One of the paradoxical claims Lacan makes about perversion is that while it may sometimes present itself as a no-holds-barred, jouissance-seeking activity, its less apparent aim is to bring the law into being: to make the Other as law (or law-giving Other) exist. […] The pervert does not desire as a function of the law – that is, does not desire what is prohibited. Instead, he has to make the law come into being.”
Bruce Fink, 2003
