“Sexual acts are one of the primary means by which we can act out our inarticulated inner lives.”
“The sex that is presented to us in everyday culture feels strange to me; its images are fragments, lifeless, removed from normal experience. Real sex, the sex in our cells and in the space between our neurons, leaks out and gets into things and stains our vision and colors our lives.”
“Sex is a game, a weapon, a toy, a joy, a trance, an enlightenment, a loss, a hope.”
“Sex can be renounced — but sexuality cannot. We can't avoid sexual issues by avoiding sex, or by dismissing its importance, or by showing disrespect to our own or other people's sexual feelings.”
“You don't write. You get out of the way.”
Sallie Tisdale, U.S. writer
