Part of Winston's hate, however, is his jealousy of women's monopoly on sexuality. The Party's war on love has clearly been very successful on Winston. Julia, like Winston, contains certain paradoxes which offset and complement the ideas that Winston embraces. For example, she is not intellectual, but she is just as capable as a man when opposing the Party's objectives. But, conversely, just as Winston fails to completely understand the Party, Julia also fails to perceive the danger that the Party's intellectual repression and historical rewriting represent to a normal world.

Granted the possibility of the world Orwell depicts, of course O'Brien is right and Winston is wrong. Winston is frustrated in sexual matters as he is in everything else. Ultimately, of course, it is this sexual frustration that leads him to the final thoughtcrime and to his own final destruction. The therapy of confessing in his diary his last sexual experience does not work for Winston. He still longs for the kind of sexual experience which is no longer possible in the society in which he lives.
