R.F.Wilson writes from Amsterdam: Yeah, sure, it’s all about sex, ain’t it? If you listen to the horny mafia and all those marriage counsellors and sex therapists, intercourse is the best glue that holds marriages together. Take away the sex, they say, and there’s nothing left.
Well, it ain’t so in real life, you know. Sex, so that you know, only creates problems for couples. All those squashy sounds and strange smells, the worries about unwanted pregnancies, the unfulfilled expectations, the lack of anything to talk about after intercourse and the boredom that creeps once it dawns on people that they don’t really have anything to look forward to, apart from shagging like silly. Sex, if you think about it, is a hassle for a committed relationship. And once you have produced kids you should really be thinking about cutting down on it and not making all those efforts to keep your love life active, as all the hornies want you to do.
Make no mistake about it: this whole perverse idea that people should think about sex all the time and hop into bed at any given opportunity is promoted all over the place with the sole purpose of getting you to spend more money. Yep, it’s a simple as that really. Why do you think the marketing and advertising men and women sexualise your kids from the earliest age? Because they want to turn them into consumers as early in their lives as possible. Once people get sexually active they reach a totally different level of consumer awareness, if you can call it that. They will buy more stuff, expensive stuff, be it clothes, booze, jewellery. They will splash out on all the rubbish that is supposed to make them look cool and desirable in the eyes of the opposite sex, or the same sex if they are so inclined. Sex drives corporate profits upwards. That is why the weasels in advertising agencies like to say that ‘sex sells’.
Nowadays even the oldies are being targeted by the marketing men and women, encouraged to keep on shagging till they drop dead. It’s hilarious to watch all those aging celebs behaving like horny teenagers, trying to convince everyone that they are still at it like rabbits, even though on the face of it they are falling apart at the seams. You know why they do it? Because the corporate guys want them to do it. Because it’s all about milking the pensioners as consumers and making a buck at the expense of some idiots who think that they should be seen as sexually active and blow a fortune on all those stimulants and fancy accessories.
Let me tell you something: cutting down on sex is the new way forward for couples living together, be it in marriage or in sin. Imagine, no pressure to perform under duress, no disappointment about exaggerated expectations, no worries about a rash popping up here or there, no obligation to get involved in meaningless verbal foreplay or pillow talk, no embarrassing stains on the bed sheets. And, what is even more exciting, you suddenly find so many other things to do together and enjoy it.
So I say this to you: show two fingers to the horny lot who are basically acting on behalf of big business, even if some of them don’t get it. Lead your life the way you want. With no pressure to prove that you’re a stud or a slut.
