cat is unavailable due to an episode of retinal bleeding and
subsequent laser surgery.  she appears to be recovering nicely
and asked me to respond to this piece of incoming email.

the notion that the session is to be 'ended' is erroneous. instead,
let the satiety of intimate merger permeate the life into which
you walk.  set as the goal the intensity of union experienced
during physical sexuality in *every* moment and throughout every
aspect of the interaction.  balance the revelry in the ecstasy of
each other with a clear concept of what makes this encounter
possible and what other people mean to your marriage.  sometimes
this will mean cutting short a love-making session, sometimes
this will mean ignoring the world while a deeper connection takes

it is unfortunate that the term 'tantra' has come to be applied
so strictly to the conjugal act in its most literal sense.  its
origin as a term appears to be tied up with yogic disciplines,
and this leads people to want strict definitions for it, especially
those which can be inspected or observed.  I contend that a more
useful phraseology is 'tantric yoga', in which the blissful moments
of matched sexual adoration are used as a prototype and gateway to
facilitate a union (yoga) with the soul of the Other (the atman of
the Beloved, if you like).  many variations on this theme are of
course possible.
