The Sin of Onan

The sin of Onan. Spilling the old seed on the ground. Cuffing the camel. Dusting the donkey. Flogging the Pharisee. Onanism, a sin that requires hundreds of hours of practice to get right, or at least that’s what I told myself.

—Biff, Jesus’ childhood pal, in Christopher Moore’s Lamb.
