Melissa Gira:

Sex being sacred, that’s an easy leap: really, if you’re accustomed to orgasms as I see them near-daily (masturbating with a few fingers, barely touching, just get it over with, just mop it up quick), if someone were to touch your deliberately and made you shut up and breathe and slow down, if they called the end result sacred, you might find yourself believing it, too. That isn’t to say that extended orgasm isn’t sacred in its own right; only that, given the flaws in empiricism, it’s an easier case to make.

Sacred Whore: Taking it for the goddess.
