Lots of quotes (and poetry) in IMDb but not necessary these below, advice from mommie Paola played by J. Bisset:
Daughter, you have reached too high. I told you, marriage is a contract. To a man of Marco's station, it has nothing to do with love. But you can still have Marco. But not in wedlock. There's an alternative to marriage. You'll become a courtesan.
I had hoped to buy you a good marriage. But your father... drank away your dowry. Your brother must buy his posting. And I am too old. It is you... who must support us now.
First secret of all great courtesans: You must know pleasure... to give pleasure. Beauty is a manifestation of the divine. That theory built the Sistine Chapel, and it'll do the same for you. Height is an advantage to women as well as men. Carriage creates the first impression.
The emperor Pericles relied more for policy on his mistress... than he ever did on his lieutenants. Courtesans, my dear, are the most educated women in the world. A courtesan is a force of nature in a civilized cloak. Any chambermaid can flop down,
take off her shirt... and men will come. Your true power comes from something much deeper than beauty. Cleopatra knew that. Theodosia. Aspasia. She could seduce a man at 20 paces... without revealing an inch of flesh.
With her mind. Desire begins in the mind. ... make him believe that he is the only man in the universe.
In order to choose your lovers wisely, you need to understand men. No matter their shape or size... position or wealth... they all dream... of the temptress. The irresistible... unapproachable Venus... who quickly turns pliable maiden when they've had a hard day.
You can't be squeamish. If you don't enjoy it... they'll smell it, like a dog smells fear. And they'll hate you for it.
Use your fingers lightly... like feathers. Your tongue, like licking sweets. Your teeth, with restraint. Just enough... to keep him wanting more. It's wanting... that keeps us alive.
It's a treacherous game you play, my little idiot. You outdid me long ago. I know that. And the irony is, it's not because... you're prettier than I was, because you're not. Nor that you're a better lay, because you aren't. It's because you're smarter. You have a gift. Don't throw it away.
- For God's sake, haven't I done enough?
He's a client like the others. Love him and lose.
