Happy 4th of July, Americans!


Reading sex studies amazes me sometimes. You'll read these little vignettes in USA Today or they'll be linked from a story on Yahoo! News about how the Swedish or some nationality one would never suspect has the highest rate of sexual satisfaction. Yet from the point of view of this American, Americans are most often seen as the randiest bunch of the lot. We're the ones with "Porn Valley" and Vegas. We're the ones who sensationalize the story when a teacher has an affair with one of her students (even though that happens everywhere. Come on, you all knew the rumors about the math teacher that was giving "extra credit" to the proverbial football player). Yet we don't have as much sex as other groups of people, and when we do, we don't always enjoy it as much.

Travesty, I say. People who know my attitudes about sex know that I believe you should be able to have sex for whatever reason you damn well please. Sex for pleasure, sex for money, sex for weight loss, sex for money (yeah, that'll get me points with the feminist movement), but whatever reason you choose to have it... you should be getting some sort of satisfaction from it. Like it or not, it's one of the few egalitarian things we have in this little blue world.

After all, the Declaration of Independence, the daring document our forefathers signed 230 years ago, cites three inalienable rights: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

So on this Independence Day, Americans, have your cookouts. Watch the fireworks. Enjoy the freedom to get together with your friends and family and argue about things that do and don't matter. 'Cause y'all know y'all will, as my cousin says.

And then go home and pursue happiness. Make sure your partner has a really good orgasm. And if you don't have one... well, then what're you spending time reading this blog for? Go find one.
