The love affair between sex and politics is nothing new. The road to political success is littered with scorned wives, sexy mistresses and the odd secretary thrown in for those long weekends on the campaign trail. I’m not someone usually found with their nose in the politics section of the paper, eagerly anticipating the “Run to the Whitehouse.” With that said, I want to know if your political beliefs climb into bed with you at night?
As a disclaimer, as I’m using a weheartit.com infographic as the basis of my argument, I've applied the term “political allegiances” rather loosely. So where do you pitch your tent on the politics of sex?
Are you Liberales, where the act of sex doesn’t equal love? After all, if sex is the same as love, surely we should just drop the word sex and “have love” a couple of times a week. Or at least that’s what the Conservadores amongst us think. Are you a Ninfomanos where sex is God, and love is, I don’t know, the donkey in the Nativity scene? Are you a little Cursis, roughly translated as a “prissy”, where the very thought of getting sperm on your premarital bedsheets is positively unholy? Or do you keep out of all the sexual mud slinging, and camp out in the Friends Zone?
Any one that knows me would say I am Liberales: as in fuck what you want, but try to keep it to one at a time. I don’t understand why same sex marriage is even a topic of discussion (love is love, my voting public), or why the Conservadores believe they should have any input on my decision to use birth control or have an abortion. Especially when it turns out their loyalty to their wife’s vagina is questionable, at best.
Speaking of loyality, is your sex life fully committed to your “political” allegiances, or a just a load of spin? Do you preach the virtues of abstinence by day, only to drop your Cursis pants after two too many vodkas? Do you masquerade as a Ninfomanos, but wouldn’t dream of putting your penis inside anyone but Margaret, your high school sweatheart?
Wether your interest in politics is that of a campaign trailer, an unaffiliated, or a "depends-how-close-the-polling-station-is-kind-of-citizen," what kind of sex politics gets your vote? Ninfomanos reveal yourselves.
