The performance of intimacy: Why the world can’t stop watching Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir

“Virtue and Moir have been a duo for 20 years now, skating together for the first time as eight- and ten-year-olds from London, Ont. In their final Olympics, they have again enthralled romantics and voyeurs the world over. Their intimacy shows in everything they do: it’s gentle as they finish each other’s sentences, it’s imbued with desire as they look longingly at one another as they speak, it burns with a sexual chemistry so hot you could set it alight as they weave easily into each others’ bodies on the ice. And they’ve been swearing for the better part of two decades that their intimacy stops just short of love.”
