“Beauvoir’s analysis shows, however, that the distinction between activity and passivity is not sufficient to account for the horror of carnality: it is not active body,the body as the instrument of will that is associated with death or decay, but neither is it the body that suffers from the activity of external forces.

This is the body that displays an alien teleology and upsets human and personal plans and decisions.
In the horrifying mode, the body is still perceived as a living body of a person, but it is perceived as undergoing an internal division. It is my body, or your body, but it is now possessed by alien forces: hands shaking, face twisting, stomach swelling…”
