    And there is no way that Conan Doyle wrote that sentence. Nope. Orgasm would be a taboo word in popular fiction of his time.

    Mr. Holmes quoted this on the season 4 premiere of Elementary. (My dear Watson!)

    Still I highly doubt Sir Conan Doyle wrote this... Recent fiction about Holmes isn't the real mc coy (though the British modern takesis actually very decent. But American Holmes...)

    In fact, I'm not sure the word was at all used in English prior to the 20th century - be it in popular fiction or medical texts, or anything in between.
