Hey, Infidel, thanks for the plug(s)!

What really captured my interest, however, was the link with the news about the superiority of the real sex over the "fake" one. Go figure.

I'ma get me some sex-related posts too, and soon. Forget the health reform and all that other unpleasant stuff. ;)

Don't be too disappointed if you still don't get any coherent replies to your challenges. Remember, we are dealing here with people many of whom believe that the Earth is 6,000 years old and that Obama is a Muslim Marxist Kenyan Arab. Reality is not their strong point.

Sex-related posts do have value in boosting readership, I suspect.....

Well, it couldn't hurt. They keep discovering more and more health-enhancing properties of orgasm all the time. And don't forget natural anti-depressants.

Now, if only we can get the new health reform plan to subsidize this somehow -- the Religiopublicans' brains would really explode then.
