128. P.J. on Elderly Sex

Q: I remember a letter from an older couple about their healthy sex life and P.J. O’Rourke saying something like “the thought of your withered carcasses slapping together in a parody of lust makes me want to puke my guts up…” Am I making this up?

A: Carol sez: “Jan. ’81 (Excess) issue, page 45, has an elderly couple ask “When should we stop making love?” A ‘prominent osteopath’ (either PJ or Gerald Sussman) replies “This minute…” and does the withered carcasses bit, ending with “…is repellent to any right-thinking person.” It does sound like PJ.” Thanks, Carol!

    No, you’re not making it up. I accidentally found it today while looking for an old Wild Turkey ad. The Jan. ’81 “Excess” issue, page 45, has an elderly couple ask “When should we stop making love?” A ‘prominent osteopath’ (either PJ or Gerald Sussman) replies “This minute…” and does the withered carcasses bit, ending with “…is repellent to any right-thinking person.” It does sound like PJ.

    Thank you! I’m a million dollars richer as soon as I can collect.
