Licentious men

Kevin Egan may have left Ireland for "gay Paree" decades ago, but the Irish Catholic puritanical distrust of sexuality remains strong in him. He keeps his memory of a young Swedish woman "who rubs male nakedness in the bath at Upsala" stored next to cautionary tales of "Licentious men" like "Félix Faure," a French politician who died in flagrante delicto.
