Frances: Nope, I'm too young. Folks my age (I'll be 30 in a couple of weeks) were the first people to come of sexual age equating sex and death. All the media coverage of AIDS began just as I was getting interested in sex. Grad students and faculty around my age are the postie-est people I've met--I think coming of age with Reagan and AIDS made us ironic defeatists.

Greg: Actually sex=death was pretty common before antibiotics.
