3. "The world can accommodate your situation, as it accommodates all situations. And your body will keep explaining to you how it all works, this original experiment, this lifelong gift.

These are your experiences--your successes and mistakes. This is your first and final chance, your one and only biography. This is the existential container, the bowl of your life's soup, wherein something can be made sense of, wherein there is a cure, wherein you are."
- Quote by Sarah Hall

Not the routine, dusk-and-dawn sex of a trusted, established relationship, but illicit, dangerous sex.
