Can't remember, it was in my notes :p:

"We are for breeding purposes: we aren’t concubines, geisha girls, courtesans. On the contrary: everything possible has been done to remove us from that category. There is supposed to be nothing entertaining about us, no room is to be permitted for the flowering of secret lusts; no special favors are to be wheedled, by them or us, there are to be no toeholds of love. We are two-legged wombs, that’s all; sacred vessels, ambulatory-chalices"
