Sex is an unending soliloquy, certainly for a Gogolesque academic with decades of study. Envisioning the nexus that dominates the metaphoric center of sex I ultimately inferred that it was reducible to three facts: women get pregnant but men don’t; sex has the capacity for extreme pleasure; and people lie like hell about sex. During a two-day conference at Stanford Law School I happened to mention, as a parenthetical aside, my three-fact epiphany. Michael McConnell, the Stanford Law Professor who organized the conference, suggested that I add one more fact to the list. There’s no such thing as the reasonable person either.
