Definition
relating to pleasing the body's senses (in contrast to the intellect) — especially of sexual sensation
  • I felt younger, lighter, happier in body; within I was conscious of a heady recklessness, a current of disordered sensual images running like a mill-race in my fancy, a solution of the bonds of obligation, an unknown but not an innocent freedom of the soul.
    p. 86.7
