She died a little that night

If one is to believe it, death is the first step into transcendence. Well, the French said it better, when they called sexual orgasm la petite mort (the little death). And I can't remember a more convincing and ecstatic orgasm then the one this beautiful lady conveys in an unforgettable scene from Joe Sarno's VIBRATIONS (1968), after being inflamed from the animal love-making sounds that filtered from next door through the wall of her bedroom.

If she surely died a little that day, she will live forever in our memory, as an affirmation of unrestrained beauty and joy, through the radiant whites that Sarno used to paint the complicit shadows.
