Re: Pon Farr in Trek lit

I think the implication of pon farr suggests that Vulcans don't have sex outside of pon farr, but it's vague and open to interpretation. I prefer to think that's not the case, and there's plenty of Trek lit that suggests otherwise, although off the top of my head, the examples I can think of are female Vulcans with alien lovers (T'Prynn, Selar) and those are with another woman and a hermaphrodite. Not that that means anything.
As has been mentioned in another thread, Selar's brother is condemned by their father for having a male partner when he doesn't go thru pon farr, which both suggests Vulcans can have sex without pon farr upon them, and that at least some Vulcans condemn those that do.
Resistance is futile
