Or you are in an argument and you try not to snap but you start yelling and suddenly you’re happy to be angry. Or you’re having sex and that moment comes when you lose your inhibition, stop posing, and you both let loose, claw at each other, howl at the moon. Miss Heidi calls it emergency sex. It must have something to do with remembering you’re an animal.
