SEX STILL SELLS: In Case You Were Wondering?

It's true, sex still sells!  Usually, that statement would refer to a scantily dressed lady made beautiful by some product, or bending over the hood of a car to wash it with another product.  Or, maybe a cowboy sitting upon a horse smoking a cigarette.  



IT ALSO WORKS FOR BLOGS!

While my lovely wife, Julie, and I were enjoying dinner at a local chicken house, I received a long email from California.  It was too much for a cell phone so I waited until I got home to open it up.

I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY FUNNY AND IN 20 MINUTES I HAD WRITTEN THE "GREAT SEX QUOTES" BLOG.

Within an hour I had feed back from four readers.

I thought "sex sells!''

Two, who were as ornery as me, thought it was funny.  One reader thought it was funny, but also said it was "naughty".  Hmm

A good friend of long-standing, responded that she was "Dissappointed in your posting today".  UH OH! It was probably the  picture of that trouble maker, Ann Coultner?

I think that sex ranks very high in the gifts of God to all of his many creations.  There is even male and female squash!  There is nothing dirty or unseemly about sex, as far as I am concerned.

UNFORTUNATELY SEX IS OFTEN EXPRESSED IN CRUDE, VULGAR LANGUAGE.

I am never, uh, NEVER, crude or vulgar, I don't even think in crude or vulgar!

A couple times over the years since I have been blogging, Julie as said she thought some earthy comment or the other was "below your standard".  I always responded that "I have no standard, I'm just me".


Julie thought the "Great Sex Quotes" blog was funny!  She just chuckled and said nothing about "standards".

THAT BEING SAID, AND TRULY SAID, I STILL LOST SLEEP LAST NIGHT THINKING THAT I MAY HAVE OFFENDED A GOOD FRIEND.

As usual, I called Julie to breakfast at 6:30AM and she has now left for work.  As I examine my feelings on this subject I ask myself, am I sorry I wrote the blog.  HONESTLY?  No, I am not.  I thought it was humourous and in good taste.

If I am not sorry, what then?

"Regret" is the emotion arising from a wish that some matter or situation could be different than what it is.  I DO FEEL REGRET!

I have always worked hard at being honest with others.  Far more important, I have worked even harder at being honest with myself.

RIGHT, WRONG, OR OTHERWISE, WHAT YOU HAVE IS WALT PIERCE, FOR BETTER OR WORSE!

God bless you and yours.




God bless the USA.
