It Also Means To Finish

Hannah Betts talks about the fuss over consummating a relationship.

And yet, in practice, sex is rather akin to dancing: something physical and exuberant that makes most of us look like arses.

As the American writer and wit Anita Loos decreed: "Sex, which has been acclaimed by too many misguided poets as an utopian activity, seldom attains that status in the human race." Like life, it has a tendency to be nasty, brutish and short, which may or may not be exactly how one likes it.
