Sex Without Love

How do they do it, the ones who make love
without love? Beautiful as dancers,
gliding over each other like ice-skaters

    These lovers find joy in the experience. They don't need to own the relationship
    but come to it unafraid and trusting. Neither do they fear the morality police.

    Especially since the morality police aren't actually the police. Exercising caution and asking questions (to which one is provided with verifiable answers) is advised.

    Agreed indeed. They may also feed
    On greed....addiction&compulsion
    as well as solipsism.
    Masters of the use and abuse,
    victor and victim
    relationship.
