Why is kissing so significant and potentially so exciting?
Sexual excitement is psychological.
It's not so much what our bodies happen to be doing, that's getting us turned on.
It's what happening in our imaginations that matters.

And its fundamental definition is: I accept you,
enough to do something potentially quite revolting with you.

Our mouths become privileged arenas.
In which to surrender our defences.
And gift ourselves to another.
physical pleasure aside.
that's why it's so very exciting.
