"Both men and women are extremely vulnerable to the force of sex, because, during sex, pleasure and fear are present in equal measure.

Because anyone who comes into contact with sex knows that they are dealing with something which only happens in all its intensity when they lose control. When we are in bed with someone, we are giving permission to that person to commune not only with our body but also with our whole being.

The pure forces of life are in communication with each other, independent of us, and then we cannot hide who we are.

It doesn't matter what image we have of ourselves. It doesn't matter what disguises we put on, the smart answers or honorable excuses we give. During sex, it's very difficult to deceive the other person, because that is when each person shows who they really are"
