The Thursday Threesome: Sex, Lies and Videotape

Seems like a lot of people are quite fond of that line. I once sat through a seminar entitled “Sex, Lies and Videotape” which was about Drosophila courtship behavior (and yes, there were videos shown of flies doing it). Interesting research, but the speaker was very boring.

Onesome: Sex…When did you learn about sex? Was it through those films at school? Word of Mouth? Your parents?

When I was a kid, I devoured books and among those that I went through with more frequency than most were science books. (I suppose it isn’t any different now.) My parents never really sat me down and told me about “the birds and the bees”–I don’t recall having any such discussion with them. I remember reading about human reproduction although I no longer remember what the title or who the author was. It was all very clinical and at the time I didn’t realize that some people would consider it a Very Big Deal.

Twosome: …Lies– …do you believe little white lies are all around us? Or do you prefer only the truth even if it hurts someone’s feelings?

I prefer the truth. The only exception is when someone asks me “How are you doing?” and clearly they are only doing this as a greeting. So instead of launching into a long-winded complaint of how my life sucks, I just say, “I’m fine.”

Threesome: and Videotape– …do you buy movies on Video and/or DVD? Or do you prefer to rent? What kind of movies do you add to your collection?

I don’t own any movies.
