An old look at the lesbian  
Fifty years ago, you couldn't publish honest porn without getting arrested, so there was a genre of Ain't It Awful Porn, which combined sexual content with what Philip Roth called "the collective ecstasy of sanctimony." (Kenneth Starr attempted to revive the genre a while back.) The famous Horrible Example was The Velvet Underground (the group named after it was no worse). Here's another.

"the collective ecstasy of sanctimony" is very good.

By coincidence, I was just thinking about the last line of Portnoy's Complaint: “So [said the doctor]. Now vee may perhaps to begin. Yes?”
