Totally agree, and I’d go further: for me, sex is the ultimate intimacy when achieved between two or more partners who are totally open to one another. The deepest penetration is mental, emotional, reaching to the core of who we are and vibrating the strings of pleasure so as to transcend the quotidian. I’ve quoted poetry in the midst of passion, listened to a lover cry over a former boyfriend, laughed out loud at a shared joke, and ridden a wave of bliss we both felt would never end. Sex is so much more than gymnastics with a pleasant flush at the end!
