Smug, not stupid
Little Miss Perfect asks, what did we miss by saving sex until marriage?

And just because this couple isn't swinging today, HAWT, doesn't mean they won't be swinging someday. Perhaps after they see that swingers really do respect their limits — once they've seen, again and again, that they're not going to be pressured into doing anything they're not ready to do — they'll become comfortable enough to start playing with others. Glaring at this hot couple from across the room, HAWT, will only serve to delay the arrival of that happy day.
Speaking of sex clubs: Last week the Portland Press Herald reported about the closure of a club in Sanford, Maine, where opposite-sex-attracted adults were having opposite-sex sex in a building that was — think of the children — kinda close to a public library that wasn't open when opposite-sex-attracted adults were gathering to indulge their sick opposite-sex desires. But, you know, still! Adults were having sex in a place that was kinda close to a place where children who don't have access to the Internet at home sometimes go to "read"!
The owners of the club didn't have a permit to operate an adult business in Sanford, and they're not going to get one, because Sanford doesn't issue permits for adult businesses, which means one more small business has been destroyed by burdensome government regulation. (Where are the teabaggers when we need 'em?)
Anyway, this quote from the police spokesperson in the Portland Press Herald's report jumped out at me: "The officers were appalled at the number and variety of sexual acts being performed — and one of the officers has worked vice crimes — right out in the open where everybody was sitting."
My goodness! Opposite-sex-attracted adults were having opposite-sex sex in front of, gee, other opposite-sex-attracted adults who paid to get in and wanted to watch. But at least the children of Sanford are safe from the adult sex parties that they couldn't attend and didn't know were going on until the details were splashed all over the front pages of a daily newspaper that's available for their perusal in the public library where they go to look at porn on the Internet.
Good work, everybody!
