Perhaps the approach is something like this:

"Disrobed, I will love it as if it were a dwarfish man.  I will draw staring 
eyes and a smiling mouth.  I will anoint it with sweet oils, cozen and kiss 
it, beg its love.... Erupting it will bathe me in semen, and I will praise 
and kiss the more, saying how happy it has made me and begging it not to go."
