The Invention of Sex

Sex was invented in 1990.
The sex educators had news for this class of 40 people in their 70s and 80s, just in time for Valentine’s Day: Older folks are friskier than ever, and it’s never too late to learn about safe sex.
Sex must have been invented in the last twenty years - why else would they be giving sex education classes to the 'Greatest Generation'?  Health risks associated with Viagra .. that I can see as being useful.  But .. condoms?  KY jelly?  Who in the wide world of sports reaches their 70s and doesn't know about that?
The study concluded that health care providers and patients were in need of sex education.

Indeed, not one of the students raised a hand when Ms. Binford asked who had been to a class before where someone had demonstrated how to put on a condom.
A does not imply B.  I don't really _know_ but I suspect that a graphic demonstration of condom usage is a recent innovation in the sex education biz.
