Y U SO SEX-AY?
The brain is ground control for all we perceive through our senses and all we put out into the world in return. The eyes tell the brain they see a thing, but it's the brain that processes the image and says, "Hey, that's pretty damned hot!" As the CPU for sensory input, it's constantly receiving and analyzing data and guiding us either to or from that which attracts or repels. And then the brain tells us how to respond. (W00F!)
Imagination comes in when we've latched on to that which the brain assured us we wanted to attract. As that relationship's intimacy deepens and becomes more physical, we fall back on learned sexual skills, but, if we are thoughtful lovers, we'll tap into our imaginations for further, and possibly new-to-us, ways in which to delight our partners (and by extension, delight ourselves). On another level, imagination has aided more than one gal in pushing through an encounter which appeared doomed from the onset. And of course, imagination's also the fairy godmother of solo ventures, if ya know what I mean. (Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.)
