A woman’s thighs can absorb a lot!
In the tale “Aided Fergusa” found in “Silva Gadelica”, Fergus falls in lust with Bébó, the queen of a very small race of Otherworld folk. The tale then relates the following:
Ocus in uair ro búi Fergus ic comriachtain ria tug lám ar mullach a cinn ocus ro fhiarfaig in rigan de cid imar chuir in lám ar a bathais.
“Ingnam lium,” arsé, “in ball ferrda ina bfuilit secht nduirn ocus gan innatsa acht trí duirn gan a dhul trét chenn sechtair. Ocus is uime sin do chuires mo lám ar do chenn.”
“Léig as alé, a Ferguis,” ar sí. “Is mór ní súigios lesrach banscáile! “
And while Fergus was having sex with her he put a hand on the top of her head and the queen asked him why he put the hand on the crown of her head.
“I’m amazed,” he said, “my manly part being seven handwidths and you being only three handwidths that it doesn’t go right out through your head. That’s why I put my hand on your head.”
“Well, stop it, Fergus,” she said. “A woman’s loins can absorb a lot!”
