As far as I am aware nobody ever worried about the fate of an object. The object is not even intelligible: it is just an alienated and despised part of the subject... But everything changes if one starts to think about seduction. Here the concern is no longer the subject that desires but the object that seduces. Everything starts with the object and returns there, just as everything starts from seduction, and not from desire.
Jean Baudrillard, 1983
