'Between the sheets, (Elliot) needed, craved, giving up authority to someone stronger and more powerful. For him, the sense of helplessness, the real if temporary lack of control, was the difference between good sex and great sex.'
“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what."
― Stephen Fry (on censorship)
