I have never understood why masturbation, a clean, safe and presumably
enjoyable act for many, should be so denigrated. Actually examining the
analogy, among other things, I have never been able to fail to notice
that the general domain of mental "sex", supposedly superior in every
way, would have to include: mental rape; the transmission of
mentally-trasmitted, and other, diseases; the creation of unwanted
mental children, some of which will become antisocial, some the result
of mental incest or inbreeding; and sleeping on the mental wet spot.

He doesn't even know you don't kick agnostics off the list. ;) :)

Toadly, like, fer sher,
