The Real Thing

“…Carnal knowledge. It’s what lovers trust each other with. Knowledge of each other, not of the flesh but through the flesh, knowledge of the self, the real him, the real her, in extremis, the mask slipped from the face…personal, final, uncompromised. Knowing, being known…[this] knowledge is something else, the undealt card, and while it’s being held, it makes you free-and-easy and nice to know, and when it’s gone, everything is pain.”  –Tom Stoppard
