I'm listening to Handel's Rinaldo. The strings make one understand what high-mindedness is. The percussive thunders, what grace is, and the duets suggest what would happen if men allowed women to take the upper hand, begin with the caressing of the brains rather than balls. What would happen is that they would learn something close to the philosophy of tantric sex – not quite that, and yet more. (My nephew declares in secret that he wants to become a professor of Italian - it's a good beginning.)
