This mode contrasts with what in improvisational workshops is referred to as yes/but blocking.

It is therefore fertile territory for what drives romance, passion, and the like. Frommer notes that in lust we typically privilege the otherness of the 23 T H E O R E T I C A L O V E RV I E W other—that is, their mysteriousness over our own, because phenomenologically it is their “mystique” that initially provokes our sense of lust.
