Slightly satirical. I don't like Pamela very much. But it might fit the model of moderate pleasure according to Asceticureans, if a Christian can have a wife, and a Jew can have heaven... Metaphysics is of this world, according to Asceticureans, unless we adopt a dimensional view... And remember, the relationship between masturbators and Pamela is fairly complex. That's why I chose that example. People feel a strange loyalty to Pamela. It evokes loyalty, even without reason.
