The world is obsessed with it.
When it’s good, there’s nothing like it. When it’s bad, it’s just not worth the bother.
For centuries it was taboo – and now you can’t escape it.
But I think we take it all too seriously, don’t you? I mean, I’m all for it. But is it only me that thinks it is SO much better when it’s served up with a side dish of laughter?
Judging by what some memorable folk have had to say about the subject, I'm happy to report that I’m not alone:
You know ‘that look’ women get when they want sex? Me neither.
- Steve Martin
Having sex is like playing bridge. If you don’t have a good partner, you better have a good hand.
- Woody Allen
Bisexuality immediately doubles your chances of a date on a Saturday night.
- Rodney Dangerfield
Sex at age 90 is like trying to shoot pool with a rope.
- George Burns
Women might be able to fake orgasms. But men can fake whole relationships.
- Sharon Stone
My girlfriend always laughs during sex – no matter what she’s reading.
- Steve Jobs
Clinton lied. A man might forget where he parks or where he lives, but he never forgets oral sex, no matter how bad it is.
- Barbara Bush (an unexpected spark of wicked humour from a former First Lady)
Women need a reason to have sex. Men need a place.
- Billy Crystal
According to a new survey, women say they feel more comfortable undressing in front of men than they do undressing in front of other women. They say that women are too judgmental, where of course men are just grateful.
- Robert De Niro
The problem is that God gives men a brain and a penis, and only enough blood to run one at a time.
- Robin Williams
So, don’t be afraid to giggle as you tussle under the eiderdown folks.
And, you men-folk out there, please don’t take it personally. Laughter is good (and surprisingly sexy).
You’d prefer that we cry when you whip off your Y-Fronts, maybe?
