  1. Presumably, 999/1000 gays have as unambiguous genes and naughty bits as 999/1000 straights. It’s not the bits they have that get so many people into frothy self rightiousness, it’s the naughty bits they are attracted to. I don’t think the biology argument will carry much weight with the frothies.

  2. While I think there’s some valuable info in the sex article, my favorite thing about it is the realization that kinkier/more partners does not necessarily equal better or deeper or somehow more intellectually fulfilled than “vanilla” sex.

    I have never had much of an opinion, positive or negative, regarding people who enjoy kinky sex or polyamory or open relationships. I have, however, become quite tired of being berated by people who are in favor of any or all of these because I am not interested in engaging in them.

    I understand that this attitude probably is borne our of defensiveness – I have been in situations where I assume I will be judged and therefore I tend to want to “strike first” – but it is nonetheless tiresome to have someone lecturing me about how a wide range of sexual interests and expression are fine and great, provided that it isn’t what the person doing the lecturing considers boring or uninteresting.
