Blissful, delighted, sexually aroused

This Woody Allen’s film is worth very little; the following piece of dialogue, though, caught my attention. A student, Jack (John Cusack), a regular customer in the city’s whorehouse, is having a conversation with one of the girls (Jodie Foster):

Prostitute: The chief magistrate likes me to tie him up, hand and foot…

Jack: Exactly. You take away his freedom.

Prostitute: …and he becomes blissful, delighted, sexually aroused.

Jack: He’s frightened of his freedom.

This Escape from Freedom explains a lot about our current disregard for it.
