On the satisfaction of the seducer. Alenka Zupancic writes:
Love is supposed to fill up the hole, the lack, introduced by desire. Don Juan, on the contrary, finds the gap that constitutes the drive of his actions in satisfaction itself. His case is not that of the metonymy of desire, of the eternal elusiveness of the ‘true’ object (of desire). He is not looking for the right woman; his constant moving on to another woman is not motivated by disappointment or lack, by what he did not find with the previous woman. On the contrary, for Don Juan each and every woman is the right one, and what drives him further is not what he did not find in his previous lover, but precisely what he did find. He attains satisfaction without attaining his aim or - more exactly, he attains satisfaction in so far as his aim is nothing but ‘getting back into circulation’. This makes Don Juan a figure of the drive. However much he stuffs himself, he cannot fill up the hole that constitutes the drive of his actions. Appetite refers to the satisfaction of the urge to eat as itself the object. … “It is not the food that satisfies, it is the pleasure of the mouth”.
