In the Mahabharata, Yudhishthira asks Bhishma to tell him who gains greater pleasure from sex, man or woman? In response to this rather unusual question from his nephew, Bhishma told him the following story.
Long ago, there lived a king, who was good to all his subjects and his wives. His name was Bhangaswana. He was a good man, known for his kindness and rightful conduct. But the king was childless and that was a burden he bore with a heavy heart.
