More sex, less violence

Dear Editor:

On guns and carnage: Violence comes with human nature, and it needs to be tamed. That means something strong and powerful enough to change our destructive behavior. Luckily for us, sex is a sleeping giant that may distract perps from their bloody business.

A noble experiment would be to put our bodily desires into competition with bodily harm. Real sex should be given more exposure on video games and at halftime in sports stadiums. A society saturated with sex could distract brutes from doing harm by substituting the joy of sex.
