Hi Cattlegate, I remember you've asked this question before. I did a lot of googling at that time and some yesterday, but no joy - just a whole lot of prostate related search results no doubt generated by the other men's experiences bit ;-) If I were you I'd try to find a couple of good Ask A Librarian type of sites; there's a chance someone will recognize it. It does seem familiar.

I have tried everything on the net and off it - all to no avail.

I have been using this quote for at least 50 years and I thought everybody would know it.

If I can't find an answer soon I will stick my name on it !

I will give this site a few more days then write (slomo) to OED Quotations (they know not online).
