Quick question

If it's not okay to talk about sex in too much detail during prime time, how is it okay to mention a "decrease in semen" as a side effect for Flomax, the drug that helps you pee better. Mommy, what is semen?

On the m├ętro on sunday, the little girl next to me saw a poster advertising a new play here in Paris and said "Mommy, what's a libido?"....

I've always thought that violence is much more damaging to young minds than sex.

There was a huge billboard at the busiest intersection of the city that we passed through every day. One month a restaurant invited reviews with "Let's compare Peter's." My precocious four-year-old reader wanted to know what it meant. I gave the obvious response (since she had no clue) and cursed the marketing genius who actually thought that was clever.

When I was a young girl I hated all the commercials for "women" things for that time of the month, to make you smell better and ease cramps. I was always embarrassed because my dad was watching.

Why can't for once the side effect be, "an increase in semen?"
