"Far from being a sign of strength, Don Juanism may indicate a lack of basic self-belief. The men who feel unable to assert themselves among men, do so among women. The unusual or talented man, who is still not unusual enough to make his mark as a creator, a thinker, a soldier, turns to sexual conquest to achieve self-respect. Among men of genuine talent, Don Juanism is frequently an early stage, before more serious work claims their energy.” Colin Wilson, The Origins of the Sexual Impulse. New York: G. P. Putnam’s Sons, 1963, p. 42.
