Marcus Aurelius on the topic of intimacy

.

 "... as for sexual intercourse, it is the rubbing of a piece of intestine, then a convulsion, and the spurting of some mucus."
     - 'The Meditations' by Marcus Aurelius
 
=====

I think Marcus was setting up a Stoic defense for his future use:
"Honey, I swear, she meant absolutely nothing to me! It was purely physical."
