Sex Quotes

What will happen to sex after liberation? Frankly, I don't know. It is a great mystery to all of us.

Author: Nora Ephron (1941)

Profession: American Author, Journalist

We do not understand these Americans who, like adolescents, always speak of sex, and who, like adolescents, all of a sudden have discovered that sex is good not only for procreating children.

Author: Oriana Fallaci

Profession:

Sex is two plus two making five, rather than four. Sex is the X ingredient that you can't define, and it's that X ingredient between two people that make both a man and a woman good in bed. It's all relative. There are no rules.

Author: Marty Feldman

Profession:

Older women are best, because they always think they may be doing it for the last time.

Profession: British Writer and Journalist, ''James Bond''

Marital intercourse is certainly holy, lawful and praiseworthy in itself and profitable to society, yet in certain circumstances it can prove dangerous, as when through excess the soul is made sick with venial sin, or through the violation and perversion of its primary end, killed by mortal sin; such perversion, detestable in proportion to its departure from the true order, being always mortal sin, for it is never lawful to exclude the primary end of marriage which is the procreation of children.

Author: St. Francis De Sales (1567-1622)

Profession: Roman Catholic Bishop, Writer

Sexual love is undoubtedly one of the chief things in life, and the union of mental and bodily satisfaction in the enjoyment of love is one of its culminating peaks. Apart from a few queer fanatics, all the world knows this and conducts its life accordingly; science alone is too delicate to admit it.

Author: Sigmund Freud (1856-1939)

Profession: Austrian Physician - Founder of Psychoanalysis

A woman is handicapped by her sex, and handicaps society, either by slavishly copying the pattern of man's advance in the professions, or by refusing to compete with man at all.

Author: Betty Friedan (1921)

Profession: American Feminist Writer

Instead of fulfilling the promise of infinite orgasmic bliss, sex in the America of the feminine mystique is becoming a strangely joyless national compulsion, if not a contemptuous mockery.

Author: Betty Friedan (1921)

Profession: American Feminist Writer

I have urged on woman independence of man, not that I do not think the sexes mutually needed by one another, but because in woman this fact has led to an excessive devotion, which has cooled love, degraded marriage and prevented it her sex from being what it should be to itself or the other. I wish woman to live, first for God's sake. Then she will not take what is not fit for her from a sense of weakness and poverty. Then if she finds what she needs in man embodied, she will know how to love and be worthy of being loved.

Author: Margaret Fuller (1810-1850)

Of all the sexual aberrations, perhaps the most peculiar is chastity.

If I were asked for a one line answer to the question "What makes a woman good in bed?" I would say, "A man who is good in bed."

Author: Bob Guccione

The misogyny that shapes every aspect of our civilization is the institutionalized form of male fear and hatred of what they have denied and therefore cannot know, cannot share: that wild country, the being of women.

Author: Ursula K. Le Guin (1929)

Profession: American Author

Sex can no longer be the germ, the seed of fiction. Sex is an episode, most properly conveyed in an episodic manner, quickly, often ironically. It is a bursting forth of only one of the cells in the body of the omnipotent "I," the one who hopes by concentration of tone and voice to utter the sound of reality.

Author: Elizabeth Hardwick (1916)

Profession: American Novelist

Vibrators. I think they are great. They keep you out of stupid sex. I'd pitch them to anybody.
