A number of years ago, I read a short rap by one of my favorite authors, Ursula K. Le Guin. In it, she brilliantly pinpointed something about the "sexual revolution" that I had never seen pinpointed before, and have rarely since -- its brevity.
She defined the "sexual revolution" as that short period of history that existed between the invention of penicillin and the birth control pill, and the entrance of AIDS. That was it, according to her. At *every other time in human history*, having sex was a potentially fatal experience. Women could easily die in childbirth, and before penicillin diseases like syphilis were largely untreatable, and sometimes fatal. We now live in the post-sexual-revolution era. At this point, sex has become a potentially fatal experience again, or at the very least, an experience that could lead to some non-fatal but pretty devastating STDs. That's why I see this guy, and his app, kinda as heroes in the ongoing sexual revolution. He took a problem and solved it, fairly gracefully. http://www.fastcompany.com/3020641/meet-the-safest-man-in-america-to-hav\ e-sex-with <http://www.fastcompany.com/3020641/meet-the-safest-man-in-america-to-ha\ ve-sex-with>
