I don’t think about sex as much as I used to, I said. But all it takes is a little reminder. Like what? she said. You name it, I said & I knew instantly I had lost all credibility.


I think if I was a woman, he told me, I’d have sex a lot more than all the women I know & I’d definitely stay away from people like me & my friends

Does everyone around here pretend they don’t like sex? she said & I nodded. O, she said, then we should probably not get to be friends, because I’m going to have to move soon.

Clear Choice

I read somewhere that if given a choice between sex & peace of mind, she said, most people would choose peace. Personally, I said, I do fine with a little anxiety.
