Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation

Jeremy Bentham

Chapter V, Footnote #05
No pains proper of the sexual sense

The pleasure of the sexual sense seems to have no positive pain to correspond to it: it has only a pain of privation, or pain of the mental class, the pain of unsatisfied desire. If any positive pain of body result from the want of such indulgence, it belongs to the head of pains of disease.
