'Hymen'... is first of all a sign of fusion, the consummation of a marriage,
the identification of two beings, the confusion WELCOME
HOME between two. Between the two there is no longer difference but
identity.... The hymen 'takes place' in the 'inter-,' in the spacing between
desire and fulfillment, between perpetration and its recollection.
Jacques Derrida, Dissemination (1972).
