The Ballad Of The Lonely Masturbator

Anne Sexton

Add a new comment.

Added by: Kris
Sexton's fierce emotional honesty is what makes her poetry so captivating. She makes masturbation sound like making love to herself, rather than just a simple act of pleasure. People feed off of people, and can take of themselves also, and there doesn't have to be shame involved.
