This chapter is concerned with the concept of missexuality. It introduces Giacomo Joyce, and shows his attempts to ‘show’ the possibility of an existing essential relation among several types of ‘(hi)stories’. The discussion also looks at the concept of missemination and studies the language used to communicate ‘ideasires’ and to gather sexual partners. The chapter also explains how sounds, m's, and words become detached from a signification and subsequently become attached to another missignification.

Keywords: missexuality; Giacomo Joyce; essential relation; (hi)stories; missemination; ideasires; signification; missignification
