Biology and Psychology of Sexual Pleasure

Sailors in underwear kissing"Physical pleasure is a sensual experience no different from pure seeing or the pure sensation with which a fine fruit fills the tongue; it is a great unending experience, which is given us, a knowing of the world, the fullness and glory of all knowing.  And not our acceptance of it is bad; the bad thing is that most people misuse and squander this experience and apply it as a stimulant at the tired spots of their lives and as distraction instead of a rallying toward exulting moments." (Rainer Maria Rilke. Letter of July 16, 1903, published in Letters to a Young Poet. 1934.)
