Our “post-erotic” times have seen the acceptance of sexual practices that had previously been deemed unseemly, they have enabled us to enjoy and explore sexuality freely, they have presented us with different relationship constellations and they have changed our interactions through digital and virtual means. However, there remains to be one phenomenon societal discourses have not addressed yet: the fascination for the affair. Regardless of gender or sexual orientation, an affair still encompasses all that is exciting and dangerous, secretive, vivacious and nonconformist, anomalous, thrilling and dark, impulsive, complicated and risky – in short: the untamed essence of the erotic. And yet, the phenomenon of the affair affects everyone.
Affair will thus try to fathom the various aspects of the affair, it will question the reasons for its allure and it will be dedicated to this “otherness of sexuality”, this special and profound nature.
