In this article I perform what I call a feminist ‘scherzo’ in bodily materialism. In western classical music, a ‘scherzo’ (the Italian word for ‘joke’, ‘jest’) is a piece, sometimes a movement from a larger work such as a symphony or sonata. It traditionally retains the ternary form of the minuet, but is considerably quicker. This is a materialist scherzo, since it touches three different authors that are all significantly concerned with the body. I in fact claim that John Locke, Carla Lonzi and Adriana Cavarero present three different modes of narrating sex: the first implicitly, the second explicitly, the third creatively.
