THE SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP MARRIAGE

sense of abandonment, of perfect freedom; and such daring freedom is theirs because each understands that the other is not grasping selfishly at his own delight. There can be little danger of unserviceable sexual behavior when the sexual life of each partner is the object of the other's intelligent and affectionate concern.
There are many phases of love, but these phases come together in the purpose of affection - the desire for unity with the beloved. The sexual relationship may play its part in enriching and perfecting unity. In its due season, it may represent, above every other relationship, the most intimate and delicate sense of oneness. As a glance of the eye or a touch of the hand or the graceful homage of a kiss - sensuous things all - becomes not only a symbol but part and parcel of affectionate expression, so sexual intercourse, the most intense of all sensuous experiences, may be a most perfect expression of mutual love. Sexuality as it appears in acts whose purpose is merely to satisfy one's own demands tends to be cruel and relentless; but when it appears as a purpose of two partners to share an experience with each other, it is the handmaid of tenderness. This is the ideal experience.
The chief difficulty in realizing this sort of relationship is our curious reluctance - due to the habit of strict reticence regarding sex matters - to admit social intelligence into the case. We speak about nature showing the way. But the kind of sexual intercourse I have been discussing is not "natural" at all. It is as unnatural as streetcars or a Beethoven symphony. It is the product of human patience, intelligence, skill. The sex behavior of the lower animals and of undeveloped races is more or less casual, largely selfcentered, and quite probably violent. Such behavior serves a purely procreative purpose, but it does not enrich the experience of sexual mates. This mutuality in the sexual relationship is an artistic achievement and artistic achievements do not just happen.
There are less ponderable obstacles. Wide differences in time of sexual response between man and woman, instability of emotional mood at certain times, odd little crotchets of time or place or conversation
