Julia and Winston walk around the little enclave. Winston, remaining at the edge of their little clearing, all of a sudden, notices the landscape: it is the Golden Country from his fantasies. A little thrush roosted close them starts to sing energetically, and the sound strikes Winston of being straightforward, unadulterated, relentless magnificence. They make a beeline for the clearing. Similarly, as he found in his fantasy, Julia detaches her garments, and they embrace. She reveals that she has done this with many other individuals, and Winston explains that the more men she has been with, the more he will love her. He is enlivened by her flexibility and energetic disobedience. In the wake of engaging in a sexual relationship, Winston compares their issue to a political demonstration; a blow against the Party.
Winston examines his life, and discusses his wife, Katharine, calling her "goodthinkful," which means to be entirely and totally faithful to the Party, even in her most of her private thoughts. Winston abhorred her, and her cool, systematic way in dealing with their sex life. Julia predicts that Katharine called sex her "obligation to the Party," and Winston is astounded to discover this is an expression that women are educated to utilize. With this acknowledgment, he starts to comprehend the true extent of the Party's sexual Puritanism. Expelling sex enables one's energy to be generally engaged, into a fierce dedication to the Party and contempt of its adversaries.
