Page 166 - Therefore on these occasions you must frame in your mind the Idea of some comely Youth who pleases you best, whose shadow will create a greater gust than could be raised by a nauseous though real enjoyment. The Picture of this charming Boy may very fitly be placed near your Bed, to imprint the fancy deeper in your imagination, and enable you to fall into those sweet transports, which do singularly gratifie the enjoyers heart.
Page iii - Philander the other day was bewailing this misfortune with much indignation, and upbraided me for having some time since quoted those excellent lines of the satirist: ' To an exact perfection they have brought The action love, the passion is forgot'.
Page xxxi - You have at this instant got the Maiden-head of my officious scribbling instrument, as you have some years since, the Virginity of another Quill. The Ink of this is black and smutty, but that of the other was of a more innocent and pleasing colour...
Page 171 - Aretin's Figures have no place in my Rhetorick, and, I hope, will find no room in my Pupils apartment. They are calculated for a hot Region a little on this side Sodom, and are not necessary to be seen in any Northern Clime.

Page iv - As Albions Isle fast rooted in the Main, Does the rough Billows raging force disdain, Which tho' they foam, and with loud terrors rore, Yet they can never reach beyond their shore. So she with Lusts Enthusiastick Rage, Sustain'd all the salt Stallions of the Age.
Page 141 - If thou wouldst have him spit in the proper place, thou must chafe him like a mortified piece of flesh, scratch him in every wrinkle, tickle him in the Flank, and under the Arms. A wanton Sonnet in a soft low Air will not be amiss to moisten this insipid Animal. Ask him, who is his own pretty Whore, his Flesh and Blood, his Daughter, his Dalilah, his Honey, his Sugar? and a thousand such wretched fooleries.
Page 36 - The Whores Rhetorick is nothing else, but the art to multiply insinuating words, and feigned pretences to perswade, and move the minds of those men, who falling into their nets, do become the trophies of their victories.
