Obscenity only comes in when the mind despises and fears the body, and the body hates and resists the mind.
D.H. Lawrence


Sexuality with all its attendant yearnings and pains, jealousies and taboos, is the most disturbing impulse humans have.
Author: John Steinbeck


Sex. In America an obsession. In other parts of the world a fact.
Marlene Dietrich


Sex: the thing that takes up the least amount of time and causes the most amount of trouble.
John Barrymore


Sex is a part of nature. I go along with nature.
Marilyn Monroe


A liberated woman is one who has sex before marriage and a job after. 
Gloria Steinem


Sex without love is a meaningless experience, but as far as meaningless experiences go it’s pretty damn good. 
Woody Allen


Instruction in sex is as important as instruction in food; yet not only are our adolescents not taught the physiology of sex, but never warned that the strongest sexual attraction may exist between persons so incompatible in tastes and capacities that they could not endure living together for a week much less a lifetime. –
George Bernard Shaw


Love is the answer, but while you are waiting for the answer, sex raises some pretty good questions.
Woody Allen


Sex and a cocktail: they both lasted about as long, had the same effect, and amounted to the same thing.
D.H. Lawrence


Sex is emotion in motion.
Mae West


Sex is more exciting on the screen and between the pages than between the sheets. 
Andy Warhol


Literature – creative literature – unconcerned with sex, is inconceivable.
Gertrude Stein


Life without sex might be safer but it would be unbearably dull. It is the sex instinct which makes women seem beautiful, which they are once in a blue moon, and men seem wise and brave, which they never are at all. Throttle it, denaturalize it, take it away, and human existence would be reduced to the prosaic, laborious, boredom, imbecile level of life in an anthill. –
Henry Louis Mencken


So as long as you can forget your body you are happy and the moment you begin to be aware of your body, you are wretched. So if civilization is any good, it has to help us forget our bodies, and then time passes happily without our knowing it. Help us get rid of our bodies altogether.
D.H. Lawrence


Women are systematically degraded by receiving the trivial attentions which men think it manly to pay to the sex, when, in fact, men are insultingly supporting their own superiority. 
Mary Wollstonecraft


Sex is… perfectly natural. It’s something that’s pleasurable. It’s enjoyable and it enhances a relationship. So why don’t we learn as much as we can about it and become comfortable with ourselves as sexual human beings because we are all sexual?
Sue Johanson


Sex lies at the root of life, and we can never learn to reverence life until we know how to understand sex. 
Havelock Ellis


Sex is as important as eating or drinking and we ought to allow the one appetite to be satisfied with as little restraint or false modesty as the other. 
Marquis de Sade


There is nothing wrong with going to bed with someone of your own sex. People should be very free with sex, they should draw the line at goats. 
Elton John


Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power. 
Oscar Wilde


Sex is always about emotions. Good sex is about free emotions; bad sex is about blocked emotions. 
Deepak Chopra


Boys and girls in America have such a sad time together; sophistication demands that they submit to sex immediately without proper preliminary talk. Not courting talk — real straight talk about souls, for life is holy and every moment is precious. 
Jack Kerouac


The way you make love is the way God will be with you. 
Rumi


I think it is funny that we were freer about sexuality in the 4th century B.C. It is a little disconcerting. 
Angelina Jolie


The natural thing, my lord, men and women joined. 
Homer


The anthropologist Margaret Mead concluded in 1948, after observing seven different ethnic groups in the Pacific Islands, that different cultures made different forms of female sexual experience seem normal and desirable. The capacity for orgasm in women, she found, is a learned response, which a given culture can help or can fail to help its women to develop. 
Naomi Wolf


Copulation is no more foul to me than death is.
Walt Whitman


Women who love women are Lesbians. Men, because they can only think of women in sexual terms, define Lesbian as sex between women.
Rita Mae Brown


Boys have penises and girls have vaginas. If they touch at the wrong time, you can make a baby or die. 
Eugene Mirman


Sex is not a mechanical act that fails for lack of technique, and it is not a performance by the male for the audience of the female; it is a continuum of attraction that extends from the simplest conversation and the most innocent touching through the act of coitus. 
Garrison Keillor


The only deep emotion I occasionally felt in these affairs was gratitude, when all was going well and I was left, not only peace, but freedom to come and go — never kinder and gayer with one woman than when I had just left another’s bed, as if I extended to all others the debt I had just contracted toward one of them.
Albert Camus


It's terrible, once you've got a man into your blood! she said.
D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley's Lover


The only unnatural sex act is that which you cannot perform.
Alfred Kinsey


I am not saying renounce sex, I am saying transform it. It need not remain just biological: bring some spirituality to it. While making love, meditate too. While making love, be prayerful. Love should not be just a physical act; pour your soul into it. 
Osho


We demand that sex speak the truth  and we demand that it tell us our truth, or rather, the deeply buried truth of that truth about ourselves which we think we possess in our immediate consciousness. 
Michel Foucault


Later I would come to believe that erotic ties were all a spell, a temporary psychosis, even a kind of violence, or at least they coexisted with these states. 
Lorrie Moore


In the short summer night she learned so much. She would have thought a woman would have died of shame... She felt, now, she had come to the real bedrock of her nature, and was essentially shameless. She was her sensual self, naked an unashamed. She felt a triumph, almost a vainglory. So! That was how it was! That was life! That was how onself really was! There was nothing left to disguise or be ashamed of. She shared her ultimate nakedness with a man, another being.
D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley's Lover


The sexual embrace can only be compared with music and with prayer. 
Marcus Aurelius


Carnal embrace is sexual congress, which is the insertion of the male genital organ into the female genital organ for purposes of procreation and pleasure. Fermat’s last theorem, by contrast, asserts that when x, y and z are whole numbers each raised to power of n, the sum of the first two can never equal the third when n is greater than 2. 
Tom Stoppard


I write about sex because often it feels like the most important thing in the world. 
Jeanette Winterston


But when a woman decides to sleep with a man, there is no wall she will not scale, no fortress she will not destroy, no moral consideration she will not ignore at its very root: there is no God worth worrying about. 
Gabriel García Márquez


Books are finite, sexual encounters are finite, but the desire to read and to fuck is infinite; it surpasses our own deaths, our fears, our hopes for peace.
Roberto Bolaño


Women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place.
Billy Crystal


There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.
Audrey Hepburn


Sex is a problem because it would seem that in that act there is complete absence of the self. In that moment you are happy because there is the cessation of self-consciousness, of the ‘me’; and desiring more of it – more of the abnegation of the self in which there is complete happiness, without the past or the future, demanding that complete happiness through full fusion, integration – naturally it becomes all-important. Isn’t that so? Because it is something that gives me unadulterated joy, complete self-forgetfulness, I want more and more of it.. 
Jiddu Krishnamurti
