John A. Sanford Fate, Love, and Ecstasy: Wisdom from the Lesser-Known Goddesses of the Greeks

An important way in which aidos enhances the secrets of love and lovemaking, which intensifies enjoyment, is reflected in the intimacy of lovers. Lovers whose relationship is personal — a “secret” hidden from others, an intimate sharing — participate in the goddess Aidos. When secret ways of making love are shared between lovers, the goddess is certainly present, and these secret ways promote that quality of intimacy which makes the experience of love special and important.

To be balanced by the joys of kiss and tell.

And so for day 451
