Assumption: the term “fire” is difficult to pin down in its exact sexual alignment; excitation or excitement seems to be one of it, but this applies more to the lifelong sexual excitation rather than to just the momentary one of a sexual intercourse. Especially does Emily seem to apply the term to the male vigor sexualis. It seems the term is tied in with the first conscious experience in her life, that of being caught in a thunderstorm when she was 2 years 5 month old, and the spectacle of lightning impresses itself upon her as a “big fire”. Lightning breaking through the clouds became one of her symbols for male ejaculation, and the god symbol for man also derives from it.
