by An Ordinary Man (the novel)

sometimes sex is just its own reward

In discussing her new book, The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, the comedienne Amy Schumer revealed that she used a one-night stand with a handsome fellow-traveler to restore her sexual confidence after finding out her lover was gay.

In my book, An Ordinary Man, I make the point that for Richard Wilson and his wife Liz, ‘intercourse had always been the salve they applied to those minor [marital] scrapes, to keep them from becoming infected,’ but I really like Amy Schumer’s observation that sex can be its own reward.

Do it for either or any reason you want, but just do it.
