The best parts of Gershon Legman’s Wikipedia entry
The title Peregrine Penis of Gershon Legman’s yet-unpublished autobiography was a sobriquet bestowed on him by his girlfriend Louise “Beka” Doherty, on account of the fact that he “used to travel to meet her in strange places.” The writing of Peregrine Penis, over “six hundred pages” in length, was continually subsidized by Larry McMurtry.
According to George Chauncey’s book Gay New York: Gender, Urban Culture, and the Making of the Gay Male World, 1890-1940, Legman was a homosexual and is credited with having invented the vibrating dildo when he was only twenty.
As a young man he acquired a number of interests including sexuality, erotic folklore, also origami—for which he was a pivotal figure in founding the modern international movement.
In a childhood incident, classmates “wrote the word ‘kosher’ in horse-shit juice across his forehead.” He regarded the event as formative.
Beginning at the age of 65, Gershon Legman would sometimes “faint at orgasm.” He experienced a heart attack after “excessive sexual effort”.
