And Now For Something Completely Different

I found this gem at ErosBlog. I haven't read an epic poem about sex in ages. This one is an ode to the trusty dildo. It was written by Lord John Wilmot in 1673.

Here is another sex good poem, by Robert Herrick, written in 1891.


HAVE ye beheld (with much delight)
A red rose peeping through a white ?
Or else a cherry, double grac'd,
Within a lily centre plac'd ?
Or ever mark'd the pretty beam
A strawberry shows half-drown'd in cream ?
Or seen rich rubies blushing through
A pure smooth pearl and orient too ?
So like to this, nay all the rest,
Is each neat niplet of her breast.

This one is by "anonymous". I can't find a date for it. It's been said that anything written by "anonymous" has usually been written by a woman.

Be Quiet, Sir!

Be quiet, Sir! Begone, I say!
Lord bless us! How you romp and tear!
I swear!
Now you left my bosom bare!
I do not like such boisterous play,
So take that saucy hand away -
Why now, you're ruder than before!
Nay, I'll be hanged if I comply -
I'll cry!
Oh - I can't bear it - I shall die!
I vow I'll never see you more!
But - are you sure you've shut the door?
