Exactly. Such freedom--and to know that we have chosen one another in the context of such freedom--is irresistible.

Here, though, I think we may be different. Your sexual liberation exceeds my own. I don't think I'm capable of reaching such a moment without knowing one another far too well to wonder if we like each other quite a bit. Without knowing what we're making will be love.

Every lover changes me. So though I come to that bed without needing to know whether we will share it more than once, I do need to know I trust the person lying down beside me. Because the marks she's going to leave upon my heart are permanent.
