  • "Of course it is not true either that cunt is honey-pot, jelly roll, sugar pie or a wooded garden or any of the other euphemism which seek to extol it in terms of something else. It is more wonderful than candy or baby food, more extraordinary than caviare; we will have to learn to describe it, not in terms of what it is not like, but in genuine comparisons. One eighteenth-century anatomist, seeking a way of describing the elegance of the cervix, said simply that it was like the mouth of a tench fish, or the head of new-born puppy."

    - 'The Politics Of Female Sexuality', Germaine Greer in Oz, 1970.
