You can quote me

I’m not the first person to write about love and sex. People like Jane Austen, Shakespeare, and Aristophanes beat me to it. Here are a few words of wisdom on the topic that’s as old as the cavemen.

The difference between sex and death is that with death you can do it alone and no one is going to make fun of you.
— Woody Allen

These impossible women! How they do get around us! The poet was right: Can’t live with them, or without them.
— Aristophanes

Love ceases to be a pleasure when it ceases to be a secret.
— Aphra Behn

Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.
— Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
— William Shakespeare

Women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place.
— Billy Crystal, When Harry Met Sally…

You don’t marry someone you can live with; you marry the person who you can’t live without.
— Unknown

I pay very little regard…to what any young person says on the subject of marriage. If they profess a disinclination for it, I only set it down that they have not yet seen the right person.
— Jane Austen

Real love stories never have endings.
— Richard Bach

Playing the part

I don’t mean on a movie set. I mean in the bedroom.

I’ve certainly had some role-playing experience in my personal sexual adventures. To spice things up, to please my partners, or to indulge my own fantasies, I’ve been a police officer, a cowgirl, a cheerleader, a teacher, a pirate, and even a vampire. I’ll let you guess which were my ideas and which were theirs.

One of the best role-playing efforts I’ve ever heard of comes in a letter from Cindy in Toronto:

“I was with a guy who was really into Star Wars. Don’t laugh, he made a small fortune buying and selling rare Star Wars toys. As you might guess, he had a thing for Princess Leia. After a few months of pleading (which was great in itself), I agreed.

Princess Leia

“I didn’t know what I was getting into! He made me watch all three films, which I hadn’t seen since I was a kid. He taught me all about the Leia character and her adventures before and after the movies (from novels which no one’s read but him). He sat beside me as we shopped online for her slave girl outfit from Return of the Jedi.

“I felt like I was preparing for a movie. He even gave me some basic dialogue suggestions. When the time finally came, he put Stars Wars music on the CD player and came in dressed as Han Solo. He looked pretty good, actually. We said some lines from the movie, improvised the rest, and then had — so he said — the best sex of his life. After that, I only had to snap my fingers and he would answer my every wish!”

Cindy deserves a medal, or maybe an Academy Award, for her work, don’t you think?
