Worlds Greatest Lover Once upon a time, long long ago, in a land far away there was a king. A king who was bored. A king who had riches beyond imagination. He already owned everything he wanted and a few extras. He had enough wives, even a few he loved, but he was bored. One day he said, “I will hold a contest. I will award a prize exceeding the riches of anyone else in my kingdom. I will find the man who is the worlds greatest lover.” And so it began, day after day an endless stream of men coming forth with great tales of endurance, seduction, and numbers of women per day. This too was becoming boring. Finally, many months into the contest, a man came forward and humbly said, “I made one woman happy.” The king was stunned – he called all of his wise men, “This man claims to have made one woman happy.” They too were stunned, “If this is true he is indeed the worlds greatest lover.” And so, it came to pass, he was the worlds greatest lover. I do not know the source of this fairy tale. It is based on something I read in the dim distant past. It is repeated here from memory with no claim to accuracy. Only in the broadest sense is it the same story. I must take the blame for the words and any embellishments.

Quoting attaboy127:

The only fairy tale part is about the King and riches. We are already rich beyond dreams when we are truly in love with our Spouse/Partner or what ever term you like to use. I was very fortunate to be engaged in that pursuit of happiness for 54 years. Never considered myself a great lover--just a man in love with a wonderful lady. But thank you for the story Mac and everyone who made a comment. It is a super idea and goal. John


I agree, “We are already rich beyond dreams when we are truly in love with our Spouse/Partner….” rmac

We knew it was a fairy tale when he claimed to have made even one woman happy. :):):) :) -CG-


Aw CG: I wondered if anyone would pick up on that possible take on the story. rmac

JM: I am pleased you like it. Hoping4Love: It is a diferent take on a man being a great lover. It amused me way back then, which I suppose is why it came to mind now. Sunnybella: Interesting, perhaps the same story.

I have heard something like your story. It is very old and refers to the man making his wife happy. Rather than hold meaningless moments with many women whom none were satisfied enough to keep him, he focused his attentions into the heart and mind of just one woman and succeeded in making her happy. The story ends with them living happily ever after and the king learning that only true love and passion for one can make you the greatest lover. 

I believe the moral of the story is that anyone an make many happy for moments, but it takes someone wonderful to make someone happy for a lifetime.
