Ooh folks, I can breathe now. I’m telling you, I’ve been tired. I’m catching naps like a senior citizen around here. Not that anything’s wrong with being a senior but hell, who’s rushing?
You know, when I was over in Saudi, I worked a good three hours a day. It changed to about 5 every now and then but you can’t work a full day over there on account of the heat. Well, least I never tried since I didn’t have to. Now that I’m working full days, I’m like, shit, this is exhausting. Being that it’s depleting my energy, I’m starting to wonder who the hell dictated that 8 hours equated to a full day of work. What’s wrong with 3, or I’ll take an even 4.
Anyhow. During a little rest period, I found myself watching this program called Sex in America. Don’t look at me all funny. It happens. I used to be a big watcher of documentaries but I haven’t in a long time, so I figure this was as good as any to find myself watching, okay? Besides, I was getting myself educated about you folks in America (hehehe!).
See, there was reference to this thing called The Kinsey Report and there were all manner of things in it. You know. How sex was years ago and what it’s like in our modern world. I wonder sometimes if we’re too open about private things. Like, these folk were talking on my screen about what they like to do in the bedroom. Well, obviously I was interested to some degree ’cause I didn’t turn the channel. They were talking and going on and toward the end, the lesbian couple started kissing and going on. I didn’t need to see that but there it was.
And there was this couple in their seventies on there talking about what they did. Nothing in detail really but enough to let me know there was something going on in their bedroom. I was surprised. You know, I’m innocent like that and for anybody who hasn’t done the do at 70-something, so are you. They. Or however I’m supposed to say it. I remember seeing Jane Fonda on some show this or last year, talking about sex was better than ever after 70. Naturally, I’m thinking, how, right? Well, Jane didn’t say how. You have to wait ’til you get there, I imagine.
Did you know homosexuality used to be considered a mental illness? Don’t shoot the messenger, folks. And did you also know that the younger folk are using condoms more than older folks? Matter of fact, the younger they are, the higher the use of condoms. That’s the word from the program. Anyhow. How do you feel about this sexual revolution? I mean, we’re in it and got here that way… Well, some of us.
Do we put too much out there or should we back up a little? Based on where we are now, where do you see us, say 10 and 20 years from now? You don’t really have to answer that but I’m on the curious side, so yeah, answer that for me.
