"What I really like about S&M, in its funny ant-sized way, is how it stands down there at the base of the mighty colossus of social authority and shakes it as hard as it can."
- Anon. quoted by R. J. Stoller in Pain&Pleasure: a Psychatrist Explores the World of S&M (1989)
"Understandably, the maximum physiological intensity of orgasmic response subjectively reported or objectively recorded has been achieved by self-regulated mechanical or auto-manipulative techniques...the lowest intensity of target-organ response was achieved during cotion."
- William Masters and Virginia Johnson, Human Sexual Response, (1966), who would have said it a lot better if they'd just said "wanking gives the best orgasms." Why on earth do we complicate all things sexual??
