Ever wondering how to manage not to have sex? If so, this article might be of help. If not, read it anyway, as it’s damn funny.

And since this is a philosophy blog, I should also link to Will Wilkinson’s post on the grave problem of inequality in sexual satisfaction. Utilitarians and other egalitarians tend to focus on inequality of income, but sexual gratification is often more critical to happiness than money. And given diminishing marginal utility, utilitarian husbands blessed with lusty wives would be morally obliged to encourage them to transfer some of that lustiness to lonely men. Or maybe, as Will suggests, the government should institute a system of vouchers for hookers.

Hrmph, I bet poor J.S. Mill never thought of that!
