When French writer and gay theorist and activist Guy Hocquenghem (1946-1988) was 15, he became romantically involved with his high school philosophy teacher René Schérer, mentioned in this book as the author of
L'emprise: Des enfants entre nous.
Schérer also was one of Hocquenghem's teachers during his university studies.
Together with Schérer, Hocquenghem completed several scholarly works. They remained friends until the end of Hocquenghem's short life.
As an adult, Hocquenghem stated that they had remained lovers for decades. They were still having sex, but more as an expression of tenderness than out of lust.
