When I was 11 years old, my mother silently snuck into my bedroom. Under the cover of midnight, she sat cross-legged at the end of my bed and proceeded to give me The Talk, although it was more of a whisper. Instead of focusing on the anatomy of sex — the biological prophecies by which, some say, our bodies were made to meld into one — my mother chose to emphasize pleasure.

As the only entity mortal or divine who has been both a sexually active man and woman, he is, they figure, best situated to settle the dispute. Tiresias answers unequivocally that women experience ten times more pleasure in sex than men.
