“Sex is not the answer.”

“Sex is the question. ‘Yes’ is the answer.”
After having three teenage girls, I am amused by the tendency of each generation to think that they, and they alone, have discovered sex.
“Sex appeal is fifty percent what you’ve got and fifty percent what people think you’ve got. “ Sophia Loren
Surly none of us geriatric (meaning over twenty five) curmudgeons could possibly understand the drive for sex and, if the curmudgeons do understand, well then that’s gross! What are you doing thinking about sex if you’re older than twenty five!?!
“Sex is like air; it's not important unless you aren't getting any.”
The fact that humans only survived this long because we are prodigious propagators is lost on the burgeoning teens. As is most every aspect of human life that doesn’t directly impact them. Justin Beiber - knows every ridiculous bit of trivia, the three houses of government – not a clue.
“Sex the poor man's polo.” Clifford Odets
A quote from my daughter, “Mom, why can’t you be a normal mom, make brownies and don’t talk about sex.” Well, because as far as I know brownies are not effective birth control.
“Women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place.” Billy Crystal
