The Girl Before - JP Delaney

"It's eleven thousand years old - the oldest depiction of sex in the world," Edward says. "From a civilisation known as the Nautufians, the first people to create communities."





Then Edward passes me the carving to hold, and immediately all my attention is on that. I find myself thinking how incredible it is that people have been making love for so many millennia; but of course it's one of the few constants of mankind's history. The same act, repeated through generations. 





Yes... Because HABIT is why generations of people have sex. 

You know, besides the whole point that, WITHOUT sex, there wouldn't BE any generations to speak of.
