Too Much Sex


Title get your attention?

On Tuesday of this week, I taught The Thousand and One Nights in my world lit class. As the students were coming into class that day, I overheard one student say, "Man, I hope we don't read anything else with this much sex in it this semester."

On Thursday, I taught Boccaccio's Decameron. The same student said, "Man, this was my favorite thing we've read all semester."

Huh?

That just made my day.

I love this. I say there is no such thing. I gave a guess talk to a class in New Hampshire via Skype on sex and feminism during the Victorian period. I think they are still in shock.
