Pleasure is located in the moment of homeostasis between tension and release, that is, when difference and repetition are in equilibrium. Jouissance, in contrast, relates to the freezing of the moment of the annihilation of tension, that is, when differences and repetition are not satisfactorily balanced (see also Roland Barthes, , and Willemen, , cited in Neale : ).
