Background

A description of the experience

Proust, Marcel - Collected Poems - Number 53 [extract]:

They say a Russian, may God preserve his soul,
Managed to rouse a flutter of sensation
In Ferdinand’s leathery, tanned, and well-worked hole
By slipping in up to the hilt his brave baton.

May fire consume to ash and coal
My last rags and belongings to all

If I were a poet, I would tell
To a wide-eyed crowd the marvel
Of this flabbergasting tool.

The source of the experience
