Dan Savage Answers Sex Questions from Religious Readers

This week, Dan Savage takes on sex questions from religious readers (or about religious family members).

This is fun.

I enjoyed this response excerpt in particular:

… just remind yourself that things have been crawling on top of each other and madly humping away for 850 million years. Sex came first, then humanity (200,000ish years ago), then religion came along tens of thousands of years after that. Which may explain why religion, when pitted against sex (really old) and human nature (pretty old), always loses. Always.
