The Awesome Power of the Obamas

They’ve inspired a sexual revolution, too.

Slate’s sex writer writes: 

After election night, I noticed there was a slow but discernible increase in the number of sex-related “news” stories. Sure, there were the obvious ones—the “aren’t the Obamas sexy” ones (click here for the latest from the meme that wouldn’t die)—and then there were the recession ones—call girls are dropping their rates! housewives are selling sex toys to make extra money! recession sex: here’s how to have it!—but I expected at some point for all the sex stories to stop. But they haven’t. They keep, well, coming. So, did the Obamas spawn this mini-sex revolution—or was it all that hope—or is it just me? 

Sarah Palin in the White House would have actually kept people from having sex. That seems the next logical step after reading last week that Palin is against any sex education but abstinence (not true) and this week that the Obamas are aphrodisiacs.
