Extramarital sex, pay for sex, clergy sex, three-way sex, adulterous sex, gay sex, sex in the Governor's Mansion, Sex in the White House, sex, sex, sex... all this sex reported in just a couple of days in our daily newspapers. Is there any other news worthy news? I guess not, unless you consider rapes and child molestations as sex stories. And those types of horror stories unfortunately are constantly in the papers. No wonder we all have sex on the brain. Obviously, some of our elected officials do...according to the newspaper stories. And does the media have sex stories! They are going absolutely wild, with the same type of frenzy they get when they're forecasting a snow storm or hurricane. New Jersey's former gay Governor talking about three way sex affairs. One Governor disgraced because of his affiliations with a very high priced hooker. Poor girl he ruined her lucrative livelihood. But, don't fret she'll come out a millionaire yet. Another Governor gave adulterous confessions of him and his wife. What really was absolutely horrible was the News revealing not only the name of one of his former paramours, but her photo and family names and family composition. When I saw her photo, I said to myself the Daily News hit a real low in ruining her poor family's lives. But for a change, here's some great news on sex Dr. Mehmet Oz on Oprah Winfrey's "300 Men Want to Know" Show" stated that having sex four times a week is not only healthier for you but will make you live longer. Well anyway it was great news for the men in Oprah's audience who not only cheered the distinguished learned doctor but were anxious to go and buy new running shoes to chase their spouses. Who is this Dr. Oz? I'm sure you all know who is Oprah Winfrey is. Dr. Mehmet C. Oz, M.D, is Vice-Chair and Professor of Surgery at Columbia University. He directs the Cardiovascular Institute and Complementary Medicine Program at New York Presbyterian Hospital. His research interests include heart replacement surgery, minimally invasive cardiac surgery, complementary medicine, and health care policy. He has authored over 400 original publications, book chapters, and medical books and has received several patents. He performs over 350 heart operations annually. In addition to numerous appearances on network morning and evening news programs, Dr. Oz has been recurrently featured on Oprah and numerous other talk shows and has guest hosted the Charlie Rose show. He is a chief medical consultant to Discovery Communications and has hosted several shows including "Second Opinion with Dr Oz." He is appearing in several additional Discovery programs during the upcoming year including Life Line, Daily Rounds, Live Transplant, and National Body Challenge. "The average time that we have sex today in America is once a week," says Dr. Oz. "Now we have pretty good data-if you can get that number to four times a week, you're going to live longer." Dr Oz's statement brings to mind this old joke about this married couple who went to see their physician because the husband wasn't feeling well. After a thorough physical examination, the Doctor takes the wife in his office privately to advise her of his prognosis. The Doctor warns her that their sexual activity must be heavily increased, if she wants to have her husband stay alive...at least ten times a week. The husband after getting dressed asks his wife as they were leaving "well, what did the doctor say?" She looks at him straight in the face, nods her head and says "you're gonna die!" Sort of makes you wonder if abstinence is really the best route for safe sex. Pregnancies won't occur and you won't catch a communicable disease but you'll break out in an awful lot of pimples. Let's face it sex is here to stay otherwise none of us would be here! In puritanical times, the word "sex" wouldn't even be used in mixed company. Even today's language refers to sex...HOT being the current colloquialism for sexy, beautiful, and virile. Somehow it won't exactly jive if you want to describe a Virgin as Hot! Our social mores have drastically changed this past half century. It's totally impossible to shield yourself from sex. TV thrives on it. The Film industry is as guilty as anyone else and everyone is to blame for the proliferation of sex in the movies. If there were no buyers, they would be much fewer sellers. It's as simple as this No audience No movies. Do you know why they call the daytime Soaps Soaps? Because after watching these serials you'll need an awful lot of soaps to cleanse your mind. Whew...hot stuff! I'm in the habit of leaving Channel 7 on after I watch the Noonday Eyewitness News and Millionaire. And when the soaps go on, boy, it's like watching the Playboy Channel... Everybody's in bed with another and believe me they're not sleeping. No wonder Sex is so rampant in our society, it's served as an after lunch desert on TV's soaps! Here's something to think about. When our elected officials are sworn into office, how can we consider their veracity, when their wedding vows were proven to have been broken? Screech at you next week!
