"Since I had permitted her caresses, indeed abetted them, I realised that I had reached the point when if she said, 'Come into me,' and I said, 'I don't feel like it,' she'd laugh me onto the rug. The decibel count of her groans indicated that in thirty-five seconds she would request my physical presence in her playroom. To postpone the seemingly unavoidable act I shifted around and placed my head between her legs and began articulate oral communication. Her response was equally articulate and well-received. However, I knew that Arlene found such communication, while pleasant, a relatively poor substitute for orthodox toe-to-toe talk." - 'The Dice Man', Luke Rhinehart.
