I knew she wanted me. I knew from our past encounters that she was attracted to me. The sexiest lover is a willing lover. And she like it. Most people don't. Oh, they like it once in a while, or at the beginning of a relationship. But after that it becomes messy and troublesome. Or, for some, it's like taking a shit. Necessary to good health. For me, it is a third of my personal holy trinity: Sex, Poetry, Travel. We wouldn't agree on the other two, although she like traveling well enough. But we both treated sex as a first priority. No, not just that. A sacred thing.
