Read this in Toby Lester's DA VINCI'S GHOST and thought of Linz. How this buddy?
the penis "has dealings with human intellect and sometimes displays an intelligence of its own; where a man may desire it to be stimulated, it remains obstinate and foloows its own course; and sometimes it moves on its own without permission or any thought by it owner . . . This creature often has a life of its own and has an intelligence separate from that of the man, and it seems that man is wrong to be ashamed of giving it a name and showing it. That which he seeks to cover and hide, he ought to expose solemnly, like a priest at mass." (Quoted on pp. 78-9)
