our sexual history

VH1 is running a mini-series style documentary on our sexual history called Sexual Revolution (or something like that). It's fascinating and I'm learning all kinds of things. In the late 60's women attending college away from home had to live on campus. They were not allowed to have men in their dorm rooms and they had to sign in at 10:30pm every night at curfew. Men did not have the same rules and lived where ever they wanted. If a woman was caught living with a man that she wasn't married to, she was expelled from the college.

And many older people actually became envious of the sexual exploration and free love that the kids in their 20's were enjoying. The older folks were married and couldn't do all those things, but wanted to. Then they figured out a way to explore all that while still remaining married -- that's how swinging was born.
