Yeah, I know, I'm as surprised as you. But, after considerable thought, it turns out that astronomy really is better than sex. Don't believe me? Here's my Top 10 list:
10: It is possible to have a “22-incher!”
9: Nearby mosquitoes are extremely limited in options of where they can bite you.
8: Oo’s and Aah’s are usually sincere.
7: "It's not how big it is but how you use it" is actually a valid point...at least where telescopes are concerned.
6: Group involvement without any of that awkwardness afterward.
5: Doing it alone is okay, too.
4: “Wow, that was amazing!” is also usually sincere!
3: It can be done lying down, standing up or in a sitting position…oh wait, that works either way.
2: Much shorter recovery time afterwards.
And my Top Reason Astronomy is Better than Sex?
1: You don’t need any special pills to keep the fun going all night long!
