Is There Sex After Socialism? (And what is it about Scandinavian men?)

The Marilyn Monroe banknote at the bottom of this collage is courtesy of Konstantin Kalendorff. It is one in a series featuting, inter alia, van Gigh, Picasso and Charlie Chaplin. Thanks Konstantin! Thanks Hugh! And come on Niklaas -- answer the (bracketed) question, please.

Erni: keep politics out of it!

Think 'Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll".

"Sex and drugs and rock and roll
Is all my brain and body need
Sex and drugs and rock and roll
Are very good indeed"

But then you have a problem -- how to order them. Sex first, and then drugs, and finally rock'n'roll? Or drugs first, then rock'n'roll, ending with sex? Or...?

Lours: while German Chancellors fall on ski slopes and injure themselves, French Presidents (think Mitterand, then Chirac, and now Hollande) seem to fall in bedrooms and come to grief

I hope you drank it with the necessary 'finesse' --  after inspecting the bottle, served by a water waiter, sniffed the cork, and drank in a crystal glass.

And then the sex after the socialism?

Today's news (from the BBC) reveals that President Hollande has found a new sexual partner during his socialist presidency. Liberté, Egalité, Sexualité et Arte Postale!

Are you a half gnome? Ask your other half -- you're never alone with schizophrenia.

I was there in the 60's -- at least in spirit, as I was born in 1946. And I was curious yellow, too, as that was one of the epoch-defining lovies.

Being sort of Anglo-French for the last decade plus, I can modestly say that I have both dash and finesse, while you seem to only have several layers of thermal underwear.

And winter rubber (tyres) with chains -- I assume that was the reference to rubber? How Scandinavian! Pass the acquavit now.

Keep dada out of the postal system; -Use rubber!

You should have been here in the 60s, I have heard good things about that decade, and I was born in 69 so... or am I half a gnome? :)

They come from the garden gnomes.

You were my last hope in answering the question, Niklas. Damn! There goes my dream of being a Scandinavian sex symbol. Or removing the several layers of undeclothes.

(I didn't get very far when I applied to be an Eskimo sex symbol either: I was told I had to shoot the bear before...)

It is too cold up here to bother removing the clothes. At midsummer we take off the outer pair of underwear. Dont know where all the kids come from.
