Charles Bukowski was a poet and writer known for his brutally honest writings about his life, low-status men, disappointment with women, masturbation, severe acne, unemployment, suicide, alcoholism, physical deformity, and prostitutes. He was incel until 24 years old (which was pretty late for 1940s America), losing his virginity to a '300 pound' woman he felt disgust toward out of desperation. The woman broke his bed during the process.
Late Sexual Success
His eventual part-time, monogamous escort described his 'sexual awakening' as only after he gained notoriety, and 'discovering this whole new world of women in a way that he hadn't', but he retained many frustrations as well as alcoholism. He died in 1994.
