Interlinked fingers
A face buried in the hollow of a neck
Lips tracing the meanders of an ear
The swirl of a tongue around a navel

An embrace erases the gap between arms
An entry swallows up the chasm between legs
For love is all about filling the void
.As is sex

Sex emanating from love and sex emanating from lust are different... One fills voids while the other creates them!

Very true. And I totally agree with what Tomichan said :)

Right. But maybe we are too dismissive when we assume that consensual sex emanating from 'lust' has no emotions at all or that it isn't actually the physical manifestation of an emotional need?
