"His bare, sun-tanned shoulders gleamed as though covered in oil. And black
tufts stuck out from the cracks of his armpits, catching the sunlight, curling and glittering
with glints of gold. At this sight, above all at the sight of the peony
tattooed on his hard chest, I was beset by sexual desire. My fervent gaze was fixed
upon that rough and savage, but incomparably beautiful, body. Its owner was
laughing there in the sun. When he threw back his head I could see his thick,
muscular neck. A strange shudder ran through my innermost heart. I could no longer
take my eyes off him..." -- Yukio Mishima, Confessions of a Mask.
