The book was written about a study on sex done by McIlhaney and Bush.

Dr. McIlhaney found that “The brain[‘s] final structure is formed as a result of experiences repeated over and over again.”

“The patterns of behavior become part of ‘who we are’ and ‘what we do’ because that is what our brain structure has become.”

Dr. Bush said that everything is connected in the body: “We are more than just by-parts that come together…sex is more than just a physical pleasure.” She said, “When a person comes together in an intimate contact the entire person is connected, not just the physical body parts.

A KISS IS THE UNBORN CHILD KNOCKING AT THE DOOR"

I heard that on an episode of Ben Casey when I was just a little girl and I've never forgotten it. Barbara Barrie was the guest star who said it.

Not only do I remember the line and the actress giving it, I remember where she was standing and what she was wearing. But that’s it. I don’t remember what the plot of that episode was. I only remember she said it in a very sad way.

Too many men and women are like Esau, willing to barter away their most precious possession for a mess of pottage (or a steak dinner). Ver sad.
