It must be something in the air.

Recently I ventured into the dangerous turf of discussing some downdsides of the sexual revolution on my page and in discussions elsewhere.

I've had a few women give positive feedback, and more than a few telling me to mind my own business. Very few men have the courage to enter these discussions. I try to keep it on the clinical side. As always I promote nature as the boss and our attempts to subvert the laws of nature as hazardous and usually harmful in the Long term.

No one ever discusses the side effects of birth control. I went there and I am glad I did.

One of my more controvercial points is that if there were no birth control, women and men would be much more selective when choosing a mate.

Even more outlandish is the idea that if women were more often pregnant they (and their mates) would get a break from the estrus cycle, including the dreaded PMS. Surprisingly some women liked that comment!

On the financial front, my CPA says that having both partners working is not good tax strategy. Accounting is not my strong suit so I cannot argue the position, but I do trust him.

Anyway, great to hear from you again!
