"The best sauce in the world is hunger, and as the poor are never without that, they always eat with a relish." Miguel de Cervantes - Don Quixote
Multiple orgasm, Karen, like so many of the pleasures people are most apt to chase, is actually a release from tension. Sex, hunger, thirst, sleep, that incessant itch two centimeters beyond the reach of your finger tips, all these and more are only pleasurable to the extent that satisfaction (ahem) is withheld for a time. Do you really want to define personal bliss as a temporary release from a discomfort that inevitably returns?
You want bliss, Karen? Okay, then, here's two words for you:
The happiest person I ever met had an IQ of 67. And, yes, at times I very much envied him his innocent bliss.
Since I opened with a quotation from Don Quixote, perhaps I should close with what I think are some very appropriate words from Sancho:
"I don't know what that is," said Sancho; "all I know is that so long as I am asleep I have neither fear nor hope, trouble nor glory; and good luck betide him that invented sleep, the cloak that covers over all a man's thoughts, the food that removes hunger, the drink that drives away thirst, the fire that warms the cold, the cold that tempers the heat, and, to wind up with, the universal coin wherewith everything is bought, the weight and balance that makes the shepherd equal with the king and the fool with the wise man. Sleep, I have heard say, has only one fault, that it is like death; for between a sleeping man and a dead man there is very little difference."
