Kavla (καύλα) is a greek word for what one feels the moment before reaching the climax of a sexual intercourse. It is a term that gets used mostly by men.
The work Kavla arose while writing a series of essays which touched upon themes that had to do with physical relationships, desire for life, fascination, anticipation, nostalgia and lust. It is a short text that expands the meaning of the word Kavla on a poetic way and suggests to look at the world around us as if we are reaching climax.
