Re: Pon Farr in Trek lit

D.C. Fontana's interpretation has always been that Vulcans are capable of sex at any time, and pon farr is just the time when the drive overwhelms them and it becomes a matter of compulsion rather than choice. The Trip-T'Pol relationship in ENT would seem to prove this canonically. And "All Our Yesterdays" also supports it.
