I can’t help but feel that this paragraph from a biography about Anthony Perkins goes into unnecessary detail:

William remembers that Tony [Perkins] wildly enjoyed the passive role in sex, and said he had trained himself to accomodate any partner -first by using his own fingers, then the handle of his handgrip exerciser, then a small candle, and finally a larger one (candles and hand lotion were regular commodities in [Tony]’s room). According to William, Tony always came profusely. But as his public visibility increased and his career continued to bloom, “Tony struggled to overcome his desire for anal sex. He lost himself so fully in it that it may have been frightening, and he wanted to change that”.1
