    pretty interesting. kinda long.
    but the graphs and statistics are the neatest part.

    says that hiv/aids "causes man to shift" from homo to hetero sex, and woman from hetero to homo sex. and that "both biology and economics shape sexual behavior".

    It also says that if you're a man with a relative who has AIDS, you're more likely to have had anal sex with a female partner.

    Oh, I wasn't criticising it, the guy seems lucid at least and straight off the bat makes his assumptions clear. I just thought that was interesting. Mind you, I am a dirty liberal pervert.

    Feeling the lag
    Quite possibly there is a correlation with more 'liberal' sexual practices.

    It's better than conservative, keep-your-socks-on, turn-out-all-the-lights, we're-only-here-to-make-babies sex.

    :dead:

    well,
    can't say I've ever tried that....


    not that I'm going to


    I like the tie-em-up, full-nekkidness, candles-burning, getting-tickled-with-a-feather, screaming-nonsense, bent-over-whatever, he's-got-a-determined-look-on-his-face, anywhere/anytime kind of sex.

    :love:
