The sexual revolution that began in the 1960s ushered in an era of free love. Birth control pills irrevocably cut the cord between sex and reproduction for straight people. Gay liberation and the blossoming of gay life brought about the flowering of the gay male sexual subculture. The pleasure dome that came into being in our puritanical culture was an amazing thing to behold. Sexuality was now not just an uncontrollable urge, but an artistic expression.
We began to understand how the ties that bound us sexually also shackled our minds. We began to understand that sexuality didn?t need to be whispered about?it could be publicly acknowledged and enjoyed. Suddenly there were sex manuals galore; there was legal porn, bikinis, nude beaches and micro-mini skirts.
Sex outside of marriage was no longer taboo. Diversity in sexual expression as well as relationships became the norm, not the exception. There were unexpected consequences, good and bad. But one thing is fairly certain; we are not putting the genie back in the bottle. Adults expect to have satisfying sex lives, and with the help of magic ED pills, men can extend their enjoyment indefinitely.
