So let's just pretend that they don't swing, shall we? Let's just outgrow
that infantile concept, that vileness that is human sexuality.

The day I see a great female body, or even a pretty good female body, and
don't think at least on some level, "Yum, I'd like to..." will be the day I
have given in to the stifling, suffocating prudes like you that are trying to
tell me that sex is bad, sex is WRONG, sex is ugly and smelly and messy.

What, I ask you, is at all unnatural about considering a woman a thing to be
desired? I hate to tell you, but if it weren't for that good old raunchy
human libido, none of us would be here. A sterile interpretation of the human
body as an abstract thing, with no sexual allure, is not a survival trait.
Those with attitudes like yours will soon be bred out, unless some "brutish
male" comes along and wakes up your gonads.

Maybe there's some hope for you, after all. While the above is very romantic,
it's still about sex. As is practically everything, everywhere.
