The best pinball players I have seen are indeed patient and directed when it comes to playing pinball, most of the time. However, they will make the odd slap and slam against the machine when they need to direct the ball into the correct lane.

This may seem brutal, but it is cooly calculated, for an uncontrolled slam will result in a Tilt, and then it's game over, you lose all your balls.

Do the best lovers also use a combination of gentle manipulation and calculated brutality? How should I know? I'm still a virgin.
