On Sex and Sleep

I'm reading a book right now that brings up a humorous analogy of sex and sleep. How sleep is the new s-word and how most people's bedroom needs have changed into a lack of sufficient sleep instead of sex. Wanting to indulge in sleep is considered the ultimate selfish act versus indulging in too much sex, which these days is perfectly acceptable. The author brings up these phrases as examples whose meanings have changed (I found it funny):

I never get enough

It can really clear up your skin

A quickie can really perk you up

When's the last time you got enough?

It makes life worth living

It changes everything

It makes you see things in a completely different lgiht

It's embarassing to want too much

You get caught up on the weekends

You feel like everyone else is getting more than you are

It changes your attitude

It puts a sparkle in your eye and a bounce in your step

It is referred to obliquely as "going to bed"

Her conclusion: be selfish and go get some rest!
