Had some writer's block on this, odd, because it is based very significantly on my true experience on my honeymoon with wife #2. Both of the characters are trying to explore their own sexuality. This chapter deals more with Vanessa's inhibitions and how she uses mild BDSM to break through them. In a later chapter, it will be the groom's turn.
Their issues are a fascinating system of guilt, she getting Catholic guilt and he getting Jewish guilt.
