The technology of desire

We were listening last evening to some good ole love songs of the 50s and 60s, and there was Jim Reeves singing: "Put your sweet lips a little closer to the phone..."

My wife and I started laughing together. Yes, this was phone sex in our generation.

And now our grandchildren have camera cell phones, text messaging, international chat rooms, and internet access to the fleshpots of the Orient. Ah, but will they find romance?
