"She hath breasts like two globes of ivory, like golden pomegranates, beautifully upright, arched and rounded, firm as stone to the touch, with nipples erect and outwards jutting. She hath thighs as unto pillars of alabaster, and between them there vaunts a secret place, a sachet of musk, that swells, that throbs, that is moist and avid." -- a passage from One Thousand and One Nights says The Erotic Arts on page 84, which has it from Jewel in the Lotus (page 1).
