The Blue Room

''It would have been better on the bench,'' says the prostitute, after a brusque copulation on a riverside quay, with a mixture of defiance and forlornness. That, of course, is Mr. Hare's main point, that sex would always have been better somewhere else, at some other time, with another person; erotic satisfaction is a chimera, the elusive quarry of an eternal and fruitless hunt.
