Comment:        Re: SHK 4.0593  Re: Whores, etc.
Could the expression also refer to a whore's salacious language encouraging
her customer, lying about her own arousal to arouse him?
Thus unpacking her heart with mere words, not connected to the true
feelings of her heart. This is not to deny the connection between
silence and chastity in other instances.
