Jim Gibbons: a man who hasn't had sex in 15 years

It's the first time I hear that the post of the state governor goes with a pledge of celibacy.

According to a recent deposition given by Republican Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons, he has not had sex in 15 years, he didn't sleep with a former Playboy model, and perhaps most surprisingly, he doesn't tell jokes very well.
And I really can respect a man who confesses to all this. It goes a long way to show his willpower and determination. What is unusual in this case is that Mr Gibbons decided to present a list of people he didn't sleep with. It's unclear how that list supports the celibacy statement.

On the other hand, it may be a good idea for every man thinking of some side activity to get himself busy instead, preparing a list of women he didn't sleep with. With the world population being what it is, this occupation may keep many a man out of trouble.

One of the little understood (though frequently joked about) hazards of marriage. But this is an extreme case.

Celibate for 15 years? He must have a right arm that looks like a tree trunk from all the "alternative activity"

Why right arm? He could be a lefty for all I know. Oops, no, he a Republican, so perish the thought ;)

Yes, marriage is a hazardous proposal all things considered.

Was astonished when I read this. If I had been a cartoon charecter, my jaw would have hit the floor. Even President Clinton only denied having sex with one woman. Gibbons' remark is especially strange since he is Governor of Nevade where just about everything including prostiution is legal.  

Speaking about sex, marriage and mating, here is an interesting article.(Note: Snoopy, you might want to keep SWMBO from reading this.)

Hey, that's what I call good news from the eggheads! Thanks for the tip, David.
