“But most people will draw their own conclusions on learning that the dictator’s official name, Mobutu Sese Seko Kuku Ngbendu Wa Za Banga, translates as ‘the cock who goes from hen to hen knowing no fatigue’.”
Jonathan Margolis, O: The Intimate History of the Orgasm

“Some sexual theorists have argued that the perceptual link between orgasm and death is traceable to the elevated state in which orgasm in a rare few cases is accompanied by a loss of consciousness. Another explanation for the petit mort idea is inherent in a rare but persistent folk belief, of uncertain origin but found in cultures from Europe to the Far East, that a person is born with a certain number of orgasms in him or her, and that when the last is used, the person died.”
