It is striking that Ovid in the Ars Amatoria never becomes ribald or obscene. Of course 'embarrassing' matters can never be entirely excluded, for 'alma Dione / Praecipue nostrum est, quod pudet, inquit, opus.' ... "what you blush to tell", says Venus, "is the most important part of the whole matter"'.
