If sex can keep us alive, then when are researchers going to produce a female enhancement drug? And when can we expect to see commercials on T.V., as pithy and farcical as what's out there for male audiences?
If sex can keep us alive, then Jim Carrey was in a win-win situation for "Once Bitten," probably my favorite vampire movie. He could have sex with Lauren Hutton's queen of the damned and live forever (on blood, though) or he could be saved from eternal damnation by being de-virginized in an unoccupied coffin by his prudish girlfriend. His choice of the latter makes a decent Hollywood ending, but makes one wonder, "What if he had chosen immortality?"
I don't believe in vampires, but I know there are people that will drink human blood, for ritualistic or selfish reasons. I've seen people with their larteral incisors sharpened into fangs. I work with a bunch of youth who exist as creatures of the night on the outs (the outside of institutional walls) -- whether they drink blood or not, I'd rather not know.
My beliefs on immortality…more abstract. Let’s just say that if one were able to achieve immortality, it would not be through feeding on the blood of the living. That’s not romantic at all. Love maybe can’t give me eternal life, but it can make my life a lot better; if the sex is good too, then I’ll be a virile old lady.
A healthy sex life is the key to a happy existence, which makes for a long life. A good laugh is like a good f*** -- I mean, you’re out of breath, you’re tingling, you’re breathing. All good things! If I live a robust life, then my energy, after it leaves my body, will be positive. Isn’t positive energy the stuff of immortality?
I mean, vampires have to roam around, undead, looking for life. How fun is that? Not very, if you ask me!
