Deltans are strongly sexual on more than just the physical plane. Humans apparently are not "mature" enough to emotionally handle a consumate relationship with them. She was also continually releasing pheromones that other Deltans could deal with, but could have immediate effects on humans. I think that in TMP when Chekov was burned by the VGER probe, she was the first to him. With pain and pleasure being related, she was able to relieve his pain by a Vulcan-like mindmeld, though purely Deltan and more intimate. His pain was replaced by...well...er...pleasure. Decker had not yet "consumated" his relationship with her when she came on board th "E", though they had had an involved "platonic" relationship sometime earlier. This made the ending when he "joined" with her more meaningful...well at least to them.
