So much oppression in our culture is based on shame about sex: the oppression of women, of cultural minorities, oppression in the name of the (presumably asexual) family, oppression of sexual minorities. We are all oppressed. We have all been taught, one way or another, that our desires, our bodies, our sexualities, are shameful. What better way to defeat oppression than to get together in communities and celebrate the wonders of sex?

Correction: Marlon Brando did not "invent" the old 50's "motorcycle rider" look. It was popular then, and copied by Hollywood.

Highway 101 went from West Calif thru West Ore, and West Wash. This was my favorite song for awhile, when it came out:

Vaughn Monroe
 Black Denim Trousers
 He wore black denim trousers and motorcycle boots
 And a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back
 He had a hopped-up 'cicle that took off like a gun
 That fool was the terror of Highway 101

 Well, he never washed his face and he never combed his hair
 He had axle grease imbedded underneath his fingernails
 On the muscle of his arm was a red tattoo
 A picture of a heart saying "Mother, I love you"

 He had a pretty girlfriend by the name of Mary Lou
 But he treated her just like he treated all the rest
 And everybody pitied her and everybody knew
 He loved that doggone motorcycle best

 He wore black denim trousers and motorcycle boots
 And a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back
 He had a hopped-up 'cicle that took off like a gun
 That fool was the terror of Highway 101

 Mary Lou, poor girl, she pleaded and she begged him not to leave
 She said "I've got a feeling if you ride tonight I'll grieve"
 But her tears were shed in vain and her every word was lost
 In the rumble of an engine and the smoke from his exhaust

 Then he took off like the Devil and there was fire in his eyes!! He
 said "I'll go a thousand miles before the sun can rise." But he hit a screamin' diesel
 that was California-bound" And when they cleared the wreckage, all
 they found

 Was his black denim trousers and motorcycle boots
 And a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back
 But they couldn't find the 'cicle that took off like a gun
 And they never found the terror of High way 1 oh 1
