Re: Sex [was Re: Basic intro (OT)]

I'm sure that people were arguing about painting like this back when
Impressionism was coming up.  As long as people keep asking "What the @#$ 
Art?" I think Art will still be interesting, and providing people with 
they didn't expect.  The introduction of new technology, just like
faster-drying paint, always brings a new crop of people into the fold - 
of which fade into obscurity or mediocrity, and some whose work lasts; all
of these folks have different motivations for doing whatever it is.

And yes, I've found it a great deal of fun in the past to create, after 
Studies have shown that the endorphines/etc flowing about in the aftermath
can encourage creativity.
