Bhaas left me this comment last night:
I’m sad that I live in a world where sex is thought of as cheap entertainment with the value of a handshake. I think eventually, a generation is going to see through the muck, religious or not, and want something deeper and more sacred than what you describe as “sex.”
What’s wrong with entertainment? I’m a fan of entertainment, and sex is not only free but damn good entertainment! Do I value love more than sex? Sure, but they’re not the same thing. If you think that sex and love are inseparably intertwined, far from being sacred, I think you’re really underselling love.
