—William Pesek, “Waning Sex Drives Give Economy ‘Perfect’ Cushion”, Business Week, 14 April 2010
People say, “I want to get laid a lot and make lots of money.” That’s not the right order.
What gets me confounded is the rule of order. On the one hand, it makes sense for lust to defer to greed. On the other hand, the satisfaction of greed tends to suppress lust. And on top of that, the poor have more sex and enjoy it more than the rich,—or at least the former afford the latter an opportunity to believe it to be so, and to share it vicariously and enviously.
Anyone inclined to sell Gene Simmons short ought to consider how his counsel resonates with Darwinian principles whereby the optimal reproductive strategy for an attractive woman is to get knocked up by the tennis pro while married to a millionaire. And now we learn that the millionaire is not really into fucking his trophy wife. Looks like a win for the back-door man.
