The Great Mirror of Male Love - Ihara Saikaku Moving to the head of the line after I saw it referenced again in another article I was reading. LMAO."Which is to be preferred: A girl of eleven or twelve scrutinizing herself in a mirror, or a boy of the same age cleaning his teeth?Lying rejected next to a courtesan, or conversing intimately with a kabuki boy who is suffering from hemorrhoids?Caring for a wife with tuberculosis, or keeping a youth who constantly demands spending money?Having lightning strike the room where you are enjoying a boy actor you bought, or being handed a razor by a courtesan you hardly know who asks you to die with her?How can I not want to read this? Psst...I think the last one might be my favorite ;)
