Basa Andere

Rufus C. Camphausen

(Basque, "forest-woman") In Basque legend Basa Andere is said to be a beautiful woman, "perfectly shaped" for love and covered all over with soft, golden hair like a cat's. This Basque "wild lady" can usually be met near a sunlit stream in a forest, where she awaits the wanderer while combing the hair of her soft belly with a golden comb.  She will smile lovingly at the man, lie back with open legs, and offer him first a view of the beautiful moist flower between her thighs, and then entrance into her warm and fragrant body.  It is said that the pleasure of making love to a Basa Andere is so intense that a man will die from it at the height of his orgasm.  The dead are found with their backs arched in the agony of unimaginable pleasure.
