How words and times change

“Sexual love is undoubtedly one of the chief things in life, and the union of mental and bodily satisfaction in the enjoyment of love is one of its culminating peaks.  Apart from a few queer fanatics, all the world knows this and conducts its life accordingly; science alone is too delicate to admit it.” – Sigmund Freud, “Observations on Transference-Love” (ed. Gay)

    Yes, they do change. Science is all over the sex angle—can’t go an hour on Sunday afternoons in football season without suffering through a half-dozen Cialis commercials. My husband and I are still prudish enough to scramble for the mute button when our son is in the room. Talk about wrecking the family mood.

    By and large, we are a vulgar people.
