Leonard Cohen Explains Why “I’ve been very reluctant to domesticate myself”


I’ve been very reluctant to domesticate myself. I found it very hard, and I don’t know if it’s a man’s real nature. I think once we move into a household, we enter a female universe, and I’ve had great reluctance to do that. There are people who simply must protect themselves from the implications of that domestic merging.
