"We wanna feel that flesh against flesh," a professor announced on ABCNews.com
today. Americans are "feeling horny."
"I get lots and lots of people telling me...that they feel like going out and
sleeping with strangers," the female professor confides.
Using words like "heightened libido" and even "horniness," the report
lays out exactly what they're looking for: "just having sex with people."
The story meanders on and on, using the word 'sex' at least once every
ten seconds. ("Single men and women are so desperate for sex that they're
seeking out one night stands," the female reporter explains.)
She crams her story with quotes from sociology professor
Dr. Pepper Schwartz -- honest, that's her name! -- whose 13 books on sex
include "What I've Learned about Sex" and "Great Sex Weekend."
And at some point the reporter traces the heightened sense of desire to tension after the
attacks in New York.
This milestone in TV news reporting turned up on both ABCNews.com and Yahoo's round-up of the day's news. Just remember, on ABCNews.com, it's URL includes
the phrase "sex video popoff."
