  1. I don’t pay a lot of attention to celebrities or sex on TV. What they can show of a couple even preparing for sex is unrealistic. You’d think everyone has sex with at least their underwear on.

    I’d be more interested in finding a group, probably here in Eugene, OR, that could accept my very liberated views. Replace “Be fruitful and multiply” with “Create love, not babies, and doublely reduce the causes of war.”
