Just about everyone likes sex in one form or another. Heterosexual, homosexual, with one person, with two people, by themselves sex, married sex, single sex, or in some other form, fashion or proclivity but most folks enjoy sex. But, there’s a big but with sex . . . no pun intended.
Sex, the revered activity that oh so much of the world’s population likes so much has also been the root of many personal problems. Unwanted pregnancies, adultery, jealousy, divorce and let us not forget disease. Sexually transmitted diseases are rampant and in some areas are at epidemic proportions. Some are deadly and even some of the ones that aren’t deadly are almost as bad because they’re oh so gross, and in some cases, incurable and will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
Yet, folks still have sex, some at a breakneck pace. They’re having almost safe sex or out and out dangerous sex. You’ll see yhat I didn’t say safe sex because most sex experts will tell us the only safe sex is no sex. Condoms aren’t fool proof, mouths hold venereal diseases and just swapping physical intimacy with someone else has its risk. So, most people do it Vegas style. They roll the dice and hope their partner is telling them the truth about their personal sex lineage or disease status. Some also roll the dice with pregnancy and adultery too. What a shame that something so natural and so enjoyable can cause so many problems. Which brings me to chocolate.
Chocolate . . . the food of the gods—they really were the food of the gods in the ancient days of the Incas. See, I think that the Incan leaders knew that sex, the other white meat was the cause of a ton of strife, so, they invented the stuff that so much of today’s world likes just about as much as sex. Yummy, creamy, chocolate! With chocolate there are no unwanted pregnancies, okay, unwanted pounds but they’re different. No diseases with chocolate either, other than cavities which can lead to root canal which can lead to tooth loss but that’s not like losing your penis to some exotic STD! And you don’t die from eating chocolate . . . well, it can contribute to cardiovascular disease which can kill you but how common is that? Well, giving it some thought it is pretty common but eating chocolate doesn’t lead to adultery or divorce and that we can all be sure of! I think.
And really thinking about sex . . . is it all that it’s cracked up to be—yeah, a little pun intended here, but is it really all that it is touted to be? Or is chocolate, that creamy and sweet comfort food just as good? Someone once asked Grouch Marx if sex was dirty. His reply was that it was dirty but only if it was done right! The fact is that sex is a normal physical desire and it IS all that it’s cracked up to be . . . if done right or responsibly. As for chocolate, yes, it too is great and it too is all that it’s cracked up to be . . . if used right.
So, sex is good if done right, chocolate is good if done right—I say do em both right and do em both often till you make sure you get em both right!
