Inside the mind of Kristen Stewart
If Kristen Stewart is like the hundred people who have shared their personal, intimate thoughts with me, she may have been acknowledging with her body that the necessary romantic poetry in her life—poetry that may contribute to her creative passion and even her desire to be alive—was truly fueled by her being vulnerable and loving and attentive and fully exposed to Sanders.
When my patients have set aside the moral positions related to the matter (which, some can argue are all that matter), they have admitted that sexual relationships can change the two people who engage them at a spiritual level, and that even one such encounter can change the people who participate in it, forever.
When wondering why people risk their reputations and professions and even their families to participate in such unions, it pays no homage to the truth to pretend that the “affair” was merely servicing a need like thirst.
Thirst quenches a physiological need. Sex—when it is between two people who are emotionally and physically drawn to one another—quenches a thirst of the soul. To insist that sexual affairs are nothing but crass and physical is to miss the psychological realities and the reasons why people keep using them to express themselves, their freedom and even their continued hope for the future.
