Sex Is Like Typing

a: Sex ~
b: typing

What: "If your goal is to be a phenomenal lover, it takes time, practice and feedback to learn how to hit the right keys at the right time to get the desired outcome. If you are not getting feedback, you won't be a good typist. If you don't practice, you won't be a good typist. Our bodies are a lot like this keyboard."

Sex Is Like Real Estate

a: Sex ~
b: real estate,

What: "Almost all studies show that casual relationships appeal more to men than to women. Again, it's just a supply-and-demand thing. Economically, it's minority, not majority, rule. You try to sell a house, it helps if you have a lot of buyers and there aren't a lot of other sellers. But when there are a lot of houses on sale and people don't want to buy, then you have to lower your price.It's not a very romantic theory."

Sex Is Like Music

a: Sex ~
b: music

What: "In other words, the ecstasy of sex can be attributed to the hormone oxytocin just like musical ecstasy can be attributed to that specific biological reaction that occurs in the brain. But I felt that, like one doesn't feel God through just any kind of music, neither can one feel God through just any kind of sex."

Sex Is Like Any Other Human Desire....

a: Sex ~
b: any other human desire or function

What: "Sex is like any other human desire or function...there is a clear purpose and an appropriate time to do it. Eating is an excellent example. God wants us to eat for nourishment, and He loves it when we enjoy the food we are eating. But that doesn't mean that we can eat anything at anytime we wish."

Sex Is Like Money

a: Sex ~
b: money

What: "Sex is like money. It's not enough to make you happy. It's just the exchange of energy in the physical world. As a man, I had long believed that regular, satisfying sex would make me a much happier guy. Well, it's not true. The pursuit of sex for the purpose of becoming happier will drive you mad. The irony is that if you can let sex go as a need, the opportunities for having sex in your life will only increase..."

What: "Each 'set' of chromosomes has been inherited - one set from Mum's egg; one set from Dad's sperm. Imagine that this is like having 2 suits of cards - one red; one black.

What:

"So said Abraham Lincoln, thus showing a greater grasp of the reality of things than many in our culture today, including not a few Harvard law school graduates and possibly even a majority of the Supreme Court should they decide to overturn DOMA and California's Proposition 8 and thus effectively impose "same-sex marriage" on the nation."


A very reasoned opinion on this issue.

a: same-sex marriage ~
b: Being Jewish

What:

" in Judaism, although views may vary among denominations of Judaism, there isn't any specific stance on gay marriage that I know of. What I do know, though, is that we have faced persecution, just as the LGBT community has faced recently. Our desire to practice Judaism in whatever ways we choose is no one else's business, and the desire to marry whoever one pleases is also no one else's business. When you look at the "issue" of same-sex marriage that way, as a personal matter rather than a public decision, it seems pretty simple to me. You wouldn't want to be told to practice a religion in which you don't believe, so why should same-sex couples be told they can't practice their right to be in love?"
