Explain!

"Sex is highly overrated" he said. "Much more than other activities, like taking a crap".
Of course, "they" all turned and immediately looked at the girlfriend.

I still say "poor girl" for this one. Considering she still hadn't "done it".


This here statement was mentioned by a friend on her journal and a discussion followed. I said it was simply psychology. And was asked in reply, to "Explain?".

Since the post is not public, I've avoided mentioning the source of the quotes, but the thought is nevertheless an interesting debate to ponder over....

It projects the angle at which the idea of "Sex" as a form of coupling, is pointed toward in todays day and age. No matter how swift or sharp the graze might be, the fact remains that when someone mentions sex, it is first thought of as intercourse and later, other respectful dimensions are noted.

"Sex", when mentioned, no matter how candid or serious the discussion, delivers the impression of Sexual intercourse for Joy, as opposed to it being regarded as a natural process of genetic stimulation.

The statement, likening sex to taking a crap, says exactly that, sex is overrated in it's implication even though, just like taking a crap is a natural phenomena, so is sex. This abrupt statement would undoubtedly flash a psychological recollection in the audiences mind about "sex" as in a relationship.

When two people, with physical proximity established, are seen to be together, such as in a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship, in the general publics vision, becomes a similar relationship that is treated on par and intercourse as a mode of interaction and play rather than natural urges toward procreation tends to bend the internal semantics by which meaning is transferred to the audiences minds.

Should our friend have said "Sexual Intercourse" or even just "Intercourse" in place of choosing the word "Sex", the interpretation would have been phenomenally different. Chances are that eyebrows would have shot up among the audience, but they gazes would'nt have shifted to the girlfriend.

When someone refers to sex as being unworthy of the status it is given and likening it to a natural process such as crapping, it forms an alarming note in the audiences minds. They look at the female who is most likely to have had a known relationship with that individual on a basic level, with bewilderment assuming subconsciously that they are factors about the sex lives of these two individuals that force the man to regard sex so lightly and, in their opinion, berating it to the likes of taking a crap.

Taking the last bit, I shall re-quote so you don't have to refer above again:

I still say "poor girl" for this one. Considering she still hadn't "done it".


This statement proves that the statement made by the boyfriend above, is merely a speculation and not a forceful point being made. It's natural to suppose that the second statement following the first means that the events occur one after another....

But that is not always the case. As is here seen, the second statement is one of prevalence, where it stands as a continuous truth, perhaps lingering a good bit beyond the current moment, but being a fundamental factor of truth since forever. so it's a continuous factor that existed way before the issues that are derived from the first statement by the audience or the reader.

Hmmm.... I'm not confused, I'm just frustrated. Have I not made enough sense already? lol!
