I just wanted to take a moment and talk about how sex is emphasized in alot in the books we read and why it seems to be so important. In LIA there are numerous sexual encounters with different people. In reality, alot of the encounters are forced like Joe and Ms.Burden with no love, while in consenual relashinships there is no love like Rev. Hightower and his wife. Sex seems to be a double edge sword that society uses to gauge relashinships. Why does this happen? Is it important to understand it? And is this relateable to our lives today?
