Writing about sex is like writing about money. Itís a way to talk about everything. When people talk about sex, they talk about what they feel about family and responsibility and monogamy and their own personal balance between their need for adventure and independence, for security and stability. You canít talk about sex in a test tube. Itís always about everything. 

-- Ariel Levy

Nothing is more real than sex when it is happening, nothing more illusory when it has just ended.

-- Dan Chiasson
