I hope you are looking resplendent after your beauty sleep :-) I just
wanted to clear something up.
Rest assured, sex is very pleasing and very satisfying. And I very
much enjoy eating a delicious meal. But only once I allowed myself to
remain mindful during eating, and it was the most disgusting
experience. Consequently, I don't pursue mindfulness during eating.
I'd rather enjoy it than know what I'm doing. For the same reason I do
not pursue mindfulness during courtship or beyond.
Cheers, big ears
