Masculine love

“Daud and Farraj were an instance of the eastern boy and boy affection which the segregation of women made inevitable. Such friendships often led to manly loves of a depth and force beyond our flesh-steeped conceit. When innocent, they were hot and unashamed. If sexuality entered they passed to a give and take, unspiritual relation, like marriage.”

– T.E. Lawrence “Seven Pillars of Wisdom”  (noted 14/2/1977)
