"Whereas Westerners have not only a scientia sexualis, but also a tradition of erotic literature, a middling language between anatomy and slang, and Orientals have an ars amandi that has long found its expression, we are still betting on the 'mistakes of youth', ambiguities and a few immorality trials… One must admit, though, that quite a few pieces of Romanian licentious literature contain a sort of lexical humor and contextual irony that save them from the hands of pedants and tight-laced moralists."
