This little essay came about because of my observation that people don't write about sex in personal ads.
This is, I think, an odd thing because couples do sex. Many people hook up and possibly within hours are doing the horizontal hula together. In fact, they often get around to sexual explorations before they get to other nominal compatibility factors such as political leaning, education level and so on.
Why don't people talk about sex in personal ads? Why don't personal ads say things like, "Must be intelligent, witty, professionally-employed and enjoy rutting like a priapic stallion?" Why are we so PC (politically correct) in ads? Why is sex persona non grata?
