I recognize that we live in a weirdly prudish time, where everyone likes to say they are sex-positive, but most everyone acts like it’s icky to be blunt about this basic fact that people like fucking. But people like fucking. And they do it all the time.

I love that Amanda is blunt about this and stands firmly against the New Liberal Puritans. The New Puritans have done incalculable harm to our culture and were an important factor in Roe being overturned. They are also kind of mystifying — they seem to truly believe that sex is some sort of unusual and repugnant activity that people only engage in when forced to do so by incomprehensible, repellent urges.
It’s always a great thing to push back against those trying to return to Victorian societal norms.
