Katie Paul: One of the things that worries about me about online dating sites, is their emphasis on finding your perfect match. Compatibility, according to them, is finding someone as similar to you as possible. I believe this approach is flawed. One of the many reasons relationships break down, is because sexual attraction seems to disappear over time. I am a student of the David Deida school of thought, which champions polarity is the founding principle of all passionate relationships — masculine and feminine energy magnetically drawn to each other.
It is no coincidence that we cry out ‘Oh God’ in the throes of passion, as we glimpse for a moment the bliss of being beyond what our minds can comprehend. Human sexuality is one of our greatest gifts. To be able to connect with another — skin on skin, mouth on mouth — is divine pleasure.
