Quote Of The Day

From the Atlantic Monthly article "Colonel Cross of the Gurkhas" (May 2006)

"[British army colonel John Philip Cross's]first memorable experience in the army was a briefing on sex [in 1944] from a medical officer, which frankly shocked him. Without a trace of a smile, the officer had said, "Don't forget: a woman for children, a boy for pleasure, but for real ecstasy, a goat."

I too recommend the goat highly, but for my money there ain't nothing like a lamb.
