…[F]or us, ‘sexual life’ includes everything that prompts those tender feelings deriving from the original source of primitive sexual impulses, even if those impulses have been subjected to inhibitions placed upon their original sexual aims, or if they have exchanged these aims for others that are no longer sexual…. We employ the word ‘sexuality’ in the same broad sense as the Germanic language uses the word ‘lieben’ [to love].
