Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The paragraph on Sören Olsson's son troubles me, not for any reason regarding morality (I am, as always, a militant social libertarian), but because of the question of publicly running and financing it.  But, in the interest of taking a stand (despite not having thought about it long enough for that stand to be firm), and even setting aside the issue of the physical health benefits of sex, should we not consider the mental health of people who, because of disability, have missed what I think is clearly a critical a piece of the human experience?  I think I have to vote, "Yes," on that.

These people are not going to experience the side of love and emotional closeness in this scenario, but should we not at least provide them with the illusion?  Being known and accepted by someone in that way matters deeply to us.

And, after all, we cover prescriptions for Levitra, so why not this?

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
