    John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester (1647-1680) , was a poet famous for his bawdy poetry. This particular poem satirizes the desires of an old impotent man to be reinvigorated and aroused by the warm caresses of an imaginary young lover. He writes this poem from the viewpoint of the young woman who, if the author is to be believed, enjoys caressing and sexually arousing that old decrepit roue. Excuse me, I have to go toss my Girl Scout cookies. (Report)Reply

    He pushed the boundaries of art and wild behaviour...he didn't resist temptation, he persued it!
