Does she want to arouse desire, does she feel desirable? Plato says that desire has its origin in a lack that causes suffering. Effectively, desire aims at it own extinction: "if my hunger is satisfied, I do not want to eat anymore". Feeling desirable involves personal satisfaction, arousing desire as well. She does not suffer because her desire is multiple and fills it with joy.
