17th century tentacle porn

HEEEEE. I knew what this would be before I clicked the link, and am pleased to see I was right -- I think I may have posted it before with exactly the same appellation. Since, after all, that's what it is. ;)

Quite a different Herrick than we get in, e.g., "To the Daffodils"...

Heh. GMTA(FSD).

Yea, well, that's him in carpe diem mode, his other major mood.

Innit though. Herrick is the only poet I can think of who could make tentacle porn charming.

My reaction was more like "Holy dolmathes, Batman, that's some grape vine!"

Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.

It reminds me of the Coyote's Big Penis stories.

They're almost all exaggerations.

Did you hear the one where Coyote tied a gourd on as a prosthesis?

No, but I always liked that Pele in Hawaiian myth has a detachable vagina: it seems only fair that someone in the world should.

I've heard that of her, but I've never heard a story about it -- so have never figured out what she uses it for.

She is being pursued by her sometime lover Kamapua'a (a fertility figure whose other form is an eight-eyed wild pig; leave all male chauvinist pig jokes at the door, please), who doesn't seem to be able to take not-tonight-honey for an answer. She's changing into all kinds of shapes and so is he. So finally she removes her vagina, throws it far away, and this distracts Kamapua'a—who goes right after it—so that Pele can get on with whatever she'd been planning for that afternoon. Presumably she retrieved it later.

Not going to be using that one in a high school English class anytime soon.

No? But it'd get the students interested!

Have you met Rochester's (or Nashe's) poems on dildoes?

I have not. Enlighten me. : )

Nashe's poem is "A Choice of Valentines," for ye Elizabethan dose of smut, and Rochester's is "Signor Dildo" for ye Restoration dose. Tho' the text of the latter is a little different from what I remember.
