Calling ahead and ordering up a fabulously expensive erotroupe to act out his every sexual fantasy was one thing — one extremely wonderful and deeply satisfying thing, beyond all doubt, he told himself with all due solemnity — but the idea of a chance meeting with someone else, another free, independent soul with their own desires and demands, their own reservations and requirements; that, just because it was all up to chance and up to negotiation, just because it might all end in nothing, in rejection, in the failure to impress and connect, in being found wanting rather than being wanted, that was a more valuable thing, that was an enterprise well worthy of the risk of rebuff.
