    I think this poem breaks the PoemHunter rules for being sexually explicit, but there is no way to report it. He seems to describe himself as a polygamist. (Report) Reply

    I had heard before that Whitman was bisexual, and line ten here seems to confirm that for me. (Report) Reply

    Mama mia! There he goes again
    Vilifying a very very sacred act
    Gaining nothing in the bargain

    Something about the tone of the poem seems to suggest that the male is doing a big favour and as such the pain is worth to the other. Yet a very good poem.....

    I loved this poem because it describes the physical act of sex on so many different levels that I've never thought of before. It takes a simple, almost instinctual act and ties into it the beginning of existence and all the ecstacy in life. (Report) Reply

    Whitman is an American Uber Man. Nietzsche would be proud. His passion runs deep and is only surpassed by his certainty. This is what makes him rare among men. (Report) Reply
