Also your comment about raw feminine energy reminds me of the Shiva and Shakti myth from Tantric Hinduism, and it's one I resonate with very strongly, as Shakti (raw unbridled creative lust and joyful energy) is complemented and channeled by the strong, balanced, stabilising Shiva, and likewise his world of dreams and thoughts is set alive by her power, meaning that together they can create. Not just life, in terms of pregnancy, but anything. Universes, stories, art. Love and the dance of love that is sex, is so fucking beautiful and sacred. It's the most incredible thing. Finding your soulmate and becoming one with them. It really makes you a better person. All your best qualities come out, and you flourish like a flower in the light and warmth of their love. It's certainly been true for me. It's how I know my love is true, how I am because of him, who I have become, who he is becoming. And sex is a hugely important creative force in life. But sex with someone you LOVE, that is the true magic, because it's not just physical pleasure, it's empathy, it's emotional vulnerability, it's giving and receiving, it's giving your loved one the best moment in their life, and receiving one in return, and what a priceless gift.
