E.M. Forster on Lust

How wonderfully well he puts it, in his so-called "Locked Diary":
“I should like to record – and why not here – that during nearly 70 years I have been interested in lustful thoughts, writing, and sometimes actions, and do not believe they have done me or anyone else harm”.
And elsewhere:
“how annoyed I am with Society for wasting my time by making homosexuality criminal”
(through this thoughtful book review in the London Times)
