In the excitement, confusion, liberation, oral and moral indignation inspired by the rediscovery of homosexual love and legitimacy, hetero-sex has been somewhat left behind. Adam and Eve have become a tired paradigm, a fashion too established and too familiar to inspire philosophical speculation and excitement. Heterosex is — what could be worse? — normal sex, subject to problems and consequently cures, of course, but nevertheless the standard which, however embellished or even lusty, beckons from the pages of Playboy with the smug satisfaction of an old conservatism.
