Guess I have missed the interesting bits...
To sleep with a woman: It can seem of the utmost importance in your mind, and then again it can seem like notzhing much at all. Which only goes to say that there´s sex as therapy (self-therapy, that is) and there is sex as pasttime.
THere´s sex for self-improvement start to finish and there is sex for killing time straight through; sex that is therapeutic at first only to end up as nothing-better-to-do, and vice versa. Our human sex life -how shall I put it?- differs fundamentally from the sex life of the whale.
(Haruki Murakami, from "A wild sheep chase")
