Marital Intercourse: Uniquely Intimate, Uniquely SignificantThe act of sexual intercourse between a man and a woman is the only human interaction capable of producing offspring, and therefore enjoys recognition in every culture as the most significant form of intimacy. Gay couples, as well as heterosexual partners, may engage in other erotic contact but this affection can’t count as consequential or as serious as intercourse.
When married people hump, they mean business!

…while withholding government sanction for other forms of physical contact such as Dutch Rubs, Wet Willies, and spontaneous games of “Got Your Nose!”
…and pay less attention to other forms of affection or pleasure.
Otherwise, women would marry their vibrators, and men like Michael would have no choice but to court a box turtle or a beagle.

…but what, exactly, does that designation mean for lesbians or gay males?
And most important of all, how do we preserve our sons’ and daughters’ ocular virginity?! Via TBogg:
…a student at Pensacola who withdrew in 1997, was disciplined for what is known on the campus as “optical intercourse” — staring too intently into the eyes of a member of the opposite sex. This is also referred to as “making eye babies.”
