Eros in a Gay Dyad: A Case Presentation

Moderator's Introduction

Paul E. Lynch, M.D.

The rule books say that I should begin today's program with something funny, but I couldn't think of anything funny so I thought I'd go right to something very sad. It's a quote from the tombstone of Oscar Wilde. Leave it to Oscar to have his own words on the monument that marks his grave:

And alien tears will fill for him

Pity's long broken urn

For his mourners will be outcast men

And outcasts always mourn.

Now what, you may ask, does that have to do with Eros and the Gay Dyad? Well it's a stretch, but you see, I am gay and I love Oscar Wilde! It's a stretch because he's so dead, and not at all available for true dyadic involvement with me.
