Women must begin to write more truthfully about the profound mystery of sex. I think that race is also a mystery.

It is almost impossible not to learn something about yourself in the sexual act. So it's important for women to be alert to the spiritual growth and self-discovery they can attain by paying close attention to their sexuality.
