Scholars believe that the word sex is related to the Latin word secare, which means “to sever, to amputate, or to disconnect from the whole”.
Our sexuality, then, has two dimensions. First, our sexuality is our awareness of how profoundly we’re severed and cut off and disconnected. Second, our sexuality is all of the ways we go about trying to reconnect.
