Naughty Shakespeare

I ran across this quote and decided to find an appropriate picture to make one of those electronic posters.

Wikipedia: Venus and Adonis (Shakespeare poem)
Venus and Adonis is a poem by William Shakespeare, written in 1592–1593, with a plot based on passages from Ovid's Metamorphoses. It is a complex, kaleidoscopic work, using constantly shifting tone and perspective to present contrasting views of the nature of love.

The poem contains what may be Shakespeare's most graphic depiction of sexual excitement.
