Sexual intercourse began
In nineteen sixty-three
(which was rather late for me) -
Between the end of the "Chatterley" ban
And the Beatles' first LP.
Some people still haven't gotten over it, says Nancy Cohen:
It was sex: feminists, and gays - not abortion - that fueled the rise of the Right...
...The Republican party is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the sexual counterrevolution.
Simplistic and tendentious (even the author acknowledges the power of moneyed interests and their crucial alliance with the bedroom police) but also, at a moment when contraception is a hot topic, worth discussion.
UPDATE: Yet more.
