Groan if you want to, but I was reading my Alt-Weekly "The Metroland" and in it is a column about how the end of the world prophecies have traditionally led to people going on a sex-binge fest in the days/hours leading up to the moment. And in this column, the writer interviews a sex columnist in Burlington, VT and it has the greatest quote to ever appear in print:
"The threat of total annihilation should be just what they need to rev their engines. This Thursday (which is today, by the way), people will have sex for the same reasons they always do - connection, comfort, attention, escapism - but the quality will be beter. With the threat of extinction, humans will bone with abandon, possibly generating the most mind-blowing sex the planet has ever seen."
Everybody get busy tonight and if you're single, head out to the watering holes with apocolypse parties and find the girls with lots of tatoos and daddy issues. You're likely to get really lucky tonight.
