Zoophilia: Equus Eroticus Why Do Girls Love Horses?

For his fourth annual philosophy series of the continental and transgressive (six lectures), Dr. Alexander turns to the animal-human relationship.

The question to be addressed concerns the erotic fascination that some young women (and, indeed, some young men) feel for horses. Via a close reading of D.H. Lawrence’s short novel St. Mawr and reference also to Peter Shaffer’s play Equus, we will discuss everything from pony-play to Plato; from horse-worship to horse-ripping.

Dr. Stephen Alexander did his PhD at Warwick University on D.H. Lawrence and continental philosophy. His work focusses on transgression, shock and taboo subjects.
