Attraction. Pleasure. Attachment. Reproduction. Fulfillment. What is the meaning of sex?

Until Eve’s encounter with the serpent, Adam did not spend a lot of time looking for work. Didn’t have to.

Stuart Rothenberg warns that the Republicans may be in for a long stretch of desert wandering as a result of its losing the "youth vote."
