Sex And All That

Whether we are implicit or explicit about it, sex permeates our behaviour and opinions. There is, of course, sexual activity that leads to progeny, wanted or not. But in any case, if we think for a moment we realize to what extent sexual behaviour is actually herd behaviour. The consequences of this may lead us to wring our hands in despair, become cynical, or simply reserve judgment.

The expressions of our sexual drives, and reactions to them, are certainly diverse. We have pornography, laws, surgical procedures, even discussions about how many sexes to recognize. Sex, it seems, is inextricably linked to love, but love is an infinitely malleable word -- we have love of country, love of good food, even love of wordplay (mea culpa). Yet however we try to identify love, gender creeps in and dominates.

To get back to sex, not really having left it, we have difficulties, for example, in drawing lines between what is art, what is pornography, and what is simply historical or cultural description. To some, sex is primarily a sport, with its wins, losses, and downright fun. Clearly some of this fun is sin, especially when it involves relationships too close to yourself, like mother, brother, and so on.

Of course, a lot of sin produces fine children, by whatever standard we judge them. At times this is due to the joining of recessive genes, which can produce results ranging from very bad to exceptional. A number of the great musicians were the offspring of what we would call repeated incest, letting recessive genes do their magnificent best. Enough of this. Now try not to think about sex for the next ten minutes.

Don, you are reminding me of my great uncle, who at the age of 88 or so was asked by my cousin, "Uncle Lee, at what age did you lose interest in having sex?" His reply was, "What makes you think I've lost interest?"

Clearly you haven't either. (LOL)

Are you actually saying that incest is a good thing? I'm confusatated.

Oy. At the risk of being called a "liberal," I'd say that any behavior that is between two consenting adults should be legal and is none of anyone else's business.

Sigh. The world is full of labels that never really seem to apply to me. Or very many other people, really.

Sorry, Don, I can think of no good reason to not think of sex now and 30 or 40 good reasons to definitely think of sex right now, especially since the kids are in bed and I was just describing to my ex-girlfriend the totally inappropriate to this blog things I wanted to do to her tonight. :)

I'm seriously open-minded when it comes to sex, and I don't mind mentioning that everyone has their own kink, and I'm all for that as long as it's consensual. Mine is. ;)

Now, I'll get back to my newest book -- 50 years of Playboy!

They asked a guru what he thinks about sex.

He answered:
"Sex, big problem.
No sex, big problem!"

Wow, my position exactly. I've always felt it was something that just happens and is perfectly natural. Would we even want to have kids otherwise? Well we could, but it wouldn't be as much fun ;)

Hi Don,
Sex is a manifestation of life. Since human minds can wander (or err) with every aspect of life, no wonder (or wandering?) that sex expression has pervaded everything else.

It's also of a male condition to think sex more often than women. Men have to disperse their resources (so easy to spend, to give sperm), women have to keep (so hard to build and maintain in life infants).

Sex is a dance, war is part of it. Unfortunately, mankind have forgotten it.

Hello Don, Many years ago I took a puddle jumper flight from San Francisco to Corvallis, Oregon to spend Thanksgiving with relatives. I sat next to a man who revealed to me in conversation that he was 72 years old. At the time I was 38. I remember gazing into his eyes as he spoke of his life and family,thinking, "If it's like this, I want to experience growing old," What I saw in his eyes was softness, wisdom and eternal youth and sensuality. What I sensed from this man had nothing to do with sex (which in my opinion is a survival strategy and nothing more)but rather that the spark of life does not have to dim as one gets older but it goes with us when we depart. This lovely encounter had an impact on me. I am now 72 and am in the same place he was in then and I understand.
