«In all your Amours you should prefer old Women to young ones. You call this a Paradox, and demand my Reasons. They are these:»

Benjamin Franklin

«I fell in love with a beautiful girl, got her pregnant, and then I got married. I wonder whatever happened to that beautiful girl I got pregnant.»

Jarod Kintz

«She arches her body like a cat on a stretch. She nuzzles her cunt into my face like a filly at the gate. She smells of the sea. She smells of rockpools when I was a child. She keeps a starfish in there. I crouch down to taste the salt, to run my fingers around the rim. She opens and shuts like a sea anemone. She's refilled each day with fresh tides of longing.»

Jeanette Winterson

«Love is friendship...just with less clothes, which makes it far more brilliant.»

Elizabeth Hunter

«A man is not for you when all he knows is to slam your back on the bed and ram into you like a wild fool. The interested ones are the ones so interested that they become very interested in only interesting things about you.»

Michael Bassey Johnson

«You can never talk religion on network TV. It makes too many people angry. You can talk about sex.»

Craig Ferguson

«Most women are more into real estate than sex. They want to own you.»

Stephen Dobyns

«Nessa held her arm up. She was staring at it, trying to gauge how big that was. “Dude, that’s as big as my arm. That’s like being f****d by a limb dude!” She wiggled her arm back and forth. “That's not normal.»

Erin Jamison

«Meatloaf is graphable in how far ahead it is in likeability categories. You can also play Mop the Floor with it. I make love like I make dinner that makes cleaning the kitchen more fun for the whole family.»

Jarod Kintz

«My panties were still on but he didn’t let that stop him, nosing them out of the way and tonguing my sex, making low, growling noises in his throat like a big cat purring with pleasure while it devoured its prey.»

Emme Rollins

«No man wants his daughter to be the kind of girl whom he liked in high school.»

J. Richard Singleton

«Why don’t we do the whole friends with benefits thing?” he asks seriously.»

R.S. Burnett

«Beneath my dress is a ladder of desire,»

Zoë Brigley (Thompson)

«She said before i could touch her walls I'd have to touch her heart. so i did.»

Darnell Lamont Walker

«There’s nothing worse than being violently jerked away from creativity.»

Aaron B. Powell

«I don't see anything other than pretensions and low mentality in women who make a man run after a hole that would soon be inhabited by termites and worms.»

Michael Bassey Johnson

«As I’m fond of saying, if you want to find utopia, take a sharp right on money and a sharp left on sex and it’s straight ahead.»

Penn Jillette

«Love is giving up control. It’s surrendering the desire to control the other person. The two—love and controlling power over the other person—are mutually exclusive. If we are serious about loving someone, we have to surrender all the desires within us to manipulate the relationship.»

Rob Bell

«I suppose it’s not a social norm, and not a manly thing to do — to feel, discuss feelings. So that’s what I’m giving the finger to. Social norms and stuff…what good are social norms, really? I think all they do is project a limited and harmful image of people. It thus impedes a broader social acceptance of what someone, or a group of people, might actually be like.»

Jess C. Scott

«I make love with a focus and intensity that most people reserve for sleep.

Dark Jar Tin Zoo

«Because of this.»

Matt Fraction

«I blended into the kitchen like a blender, but I made so much noise that I nearly woke up the strawberries and bananas. You should hear me make love. (I sound like an ice machine, but I’m as motionless as an empty ice cube tray.)»

Jarod Kintz

«Water quench thirsts, food quenches hunger while sex quenches lust or love»

Ikechukwu Izuakor

«I know I want you," he heard himself say, all his vows and his honor all forgotten. She stood before him naked as her name day, and he was as hard as the rock around them. He had been in her half a hundred times by now, but always beneath furs, with others all around them. He had never seeen how beautiful she was. Her legs were skinny and well muscled, the hair at the juncture of her thighs a brighter red than that on her head. Does that make it even luckier? He pulled her close.»

George R.R. Martin

«Can you tell by where my eyes are looking what I’m thinking? Hint: I’m staring directly at your vagina.»

Jarod Kintz

«I make art and I make love, and I almost always do both at the same time. If the cops ask, I’ll tell them I was framed. Same goes for the museum.»

Jarod Kintz

«I will not forgive. I will inflict and invite suffering-all our lives. As Bunni grows up she'll hear from her mother that her father is cruel,capricious, tyrannical person. Bunni won't love me. Everyone will take her side, because she is a woman, I won't be able to say a thing, ever. I will have to keep my mouth shut my entire life. I must maintain my wife's honour. And we call women the weaker sex! How deadly is the strength of frailty, and men-if they're gentlemen- how incredibly helpless!»

Buddhadeva Bose

«I shall now explain my plan. You may then speak, but only to amend the detail. The broad outline is not subject to negotiation. Are you ready? Good … I propose to have sex with you. I believe it will be excellent sex. Your obedience on one particular issue of timing it will be required to make it unforgettable sex. I will explain that issue as we go. At the moment, I wish to hear your inevitable objection to the general sex part of this plan.»

Nick Harkaway

«I'm just not going to do it so that we can say that we've done it. And I'm not going to do it if the first thing you say afterwards is 'please don't tell anyone' or 'let's forget it ever happened'. If you have to keep something secret it's because you shouldn't be doing it in the first place!»
