Sex and Its Discontents
It’s the Alibi’s Third Annual Sex Sex Sex Survey Survey Survey
Rise up and be counted! Then get down on your knees.
"Sex is natural. Sex is fun." Yeah! "Sex is best when it's one on one …" Whoa, hold it right there, circa-1987 George Michael! Not everyone is into missionary, procreative or even one-on-one sex in 2015. But the question is: What are you into, dearest Alibi readers? Our Third Annual Sex Survey endeavors to answer that question, but we can't do it without you. No, really, we actually can't. So in the immortal words of Salt-n-Pepa, "Let's talk about sex, baby." The survey awaits your titillating deets. Vote now through midnight on Wednesday, Jan. 28.
