I love this:

"It should also be added that the way one comes out with the words is important in Japanese. If you are a man, you should spit the syllables out as though you were expelling vile-tasting marbles from your mouth. If you are a woman, you should murmur them demurely, while behind them you suppress something between a giggle and a plea."

When I lived in Japan I thought my Japanese was great, until one of my female co-workers informed me that I sounded like a "homosexual gay boy."

Expelling vile-tasting marbles it is!
