Going all the way...

You know how statistics from “studies” often do not tell the entire story. Like those studies that show how many men versus women have illicit, heterosexual affairs. The percentage of men is always higher in any study than the percentage of women.

No one seems to ask who the men are having heterosexual relations with. Do the women who have illicit sex have it with more partners than men who do? Or are some men lying about having the illicit sex, saying they do when they don’t, thus making the male percentage higher than women’s? Or do women lie and say they do not, when they do, making their percentage lower than that of males?

Or? I don’t know. It just always makes me wonder when I read yet one more study saying that, for example, seventy percent of men and forty percent of women have had a heterosexual affair.

Anyway, I recently read a study saying that pre-teens who choose raucous rap and heavy metal performances (I can’t in good conscience call it “music”) are more likely to have early sex than those kids who choose less raucous sounds such as ballads, or even country-western or classical music.

What the newspaper report did not say was what the researchers believe is cause and effect. The report implies that listening to raucous music may cause pre-teens to seek sex earlier than those listening to melodies.

Perhaps there was more to the study, and the newspaper chose only that part to report. But one needs to ask about the kids studied. Could it not be that pre-teens who seek sex earlier than others want the wilder music because of their raging hormones, and not that the music causes their hormones to rage? Then the kids who wait longer for sex are those types who seek quieter music, perhaps? It may not be that the music soothes their savage breasts.

Again, I don’t know. My dad was angry with me in the 1950s for listening to Frank Sinatra croon, “All The Way.” He thought it suggestive and even "dirty": “When somebody loves you, it’s no good unless he loves you, all the way.” Etc.

I wasn’t successful in finding it, but sex was something I sought back then. Suppose that was Frankie’s fault?

Maybe men visit prostitutes. But I guess that wouldn't be called an "affair." Interesting, And I got my daily laugh.

Another possibility is that both men and women lie about their sex lives. But only Clinton is vilified for that.

Today we see your father as prudish, at the least. But if his generation had succeeded in raising us to accept their views, music might not have evolved into the near-porn so much of it is today.

Of course women lie. That is why most women would vote again for Clinton. He is a bright man, a great leader, and his sex life was no one else's business. Like the Salem witch hunters, the Starr Chamber got its kicks from the investigation.
