If you've ever been overcome with moist, turgid urges by the "sex table" at Greenwich Village's Shakespeare & Co. bookstore, litblogger Maud Newton has a clarification to help stem the tide of bad thoughts. The store's website may be down, but like every spunky kid these days, they're still posting on Myspace. Therein lies a managerial statement on the use/misuse of the sex table:
The "sex" table is for in-store guests only, and unfortunately cannot be reproduced on this site. No "physical sex" takes place upon the "sex" table at any time, ever, (though many a filthy thought will fly) and in no way does the purchase of anything upon this table guarantee sex and/or the making of, at any given point in time, in the near or distant future. It is to be used as a tool for concept and instruction only.
Nothing wrong with sex under the table, though. Especially if it's not "physical sex."
