"Undines were most often employed for sexual purposes. They make excellent lovers, and when treated with kindness and respect, will remain faithful to the magician for years. ... They have the ability to provoke intense physical arousal in a man or woman at will, and to sustain it for as long as they wish. It is possible for a man to remain erect for five or six hours, even longer, when stimulated by an Undine, with no loss of intensity." http://www.donaldtyson.com/element.html
