From “Ode to the Penis”
by Nancy Ava Miller
Is sex a sin? Oh, who can tell!
When God made sex, he
made it well.
say that God is like a king;
say that God made everything.
say he made both wife and man.
must have made that lesbian.
say that God made wind and rain.
say life is filled with pain.
with pain, but good things, too,
kids and love and morning dew.
filled with sex—good as life gets.
God made gays and God made hets.
made whips and dildos, too.
even made a high-heeled shoe.
made the Earth; he made the sky.
not for me to question why.
made wind and God made rain
God placed porn shops down on Main
also made my trembling dick.
made that, I can’t be sick!
|Virtually no one has enough accurate, judgment-free information
about sex. We don’t watch other people do it, we can’t find many
accurate representations of it in the media, and few of us talk
honestly about it with each other. It’s almost impossible to know
the full range of sexual thoughts and behavior of the people around
us—and, therefore, impossible to know how much we have in common.
