The events of that momentous Friday night stayed with me for a long time. At such a young age you don’t think that you might just have had the most exhilarating and sexually-charged night of your life. It was certainly a high bar but, fuelled by the giddy excitement, I viewed it as only the start. What was beyond dispute was that the adrenalin produced by such a hedonistic encounter was irresistible and addictive. Whether this thrill was to damage my pure and normalised romantic sensibilities was not something to debate now. Many years later I was to re-visit this, but at this juncture I was way too enthralled to resist further temptation. I had experienced the irresistible appeal of sexual inhibition and it seemed way too alluring to let go now.
