An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





Men always fall for frigid women because they put on the best show.


Fanny Brice (1891-1951, American entertainer)


Show me a frigid women and, nine times out of ten, I'll show you a little man.


Julie Burchill (British journalist, writer)


Frigidity is desire imagined by a woman who doesn't desire the man offering himself to her. It's the desire of a woman for a man who hasn't yet come to her, whom she doesn't yet know. She's faithful to this stranger even before she belongs to him. Frigidity is the non-desire for whatever is not him.


Marguerite Duras (1914-1996, French author, filmmaker)


Frigidity is largely nonsense. It is this generation's catchword, one only vaguely understood and constantly misused. Frigid women are few. There is a host of diffident and slow-ripening ones.


Phyllis McGinley (1905-1978, American poet, author)
