I thought that it was an interesting question then, and I have to say that I’m still really intrigued by it now. As a result of my sometimes insatiable curiosity I’ve started putting the question to many (though not all, I do occasionally have a sense of propriety) of the people I encounter. This single, fairly straightforward “would you rather” has spawned a good deal of discussion in many of my social circles including my immediate family.
The tricky part of the question is that, for most, the two things are enjoyable, but for vastly different reasons. The enjoyment one gets from eating cheese is of a very different type than the enjoyment one gets from engaging in oral sex. And of course, if you are a fan of cheese and oral sex, the idea of giving up either one forever is fairly distressing.
There have been some people who tried to negotiate restrictions on the question, so, before you ask, it is both giving and receiving oral sex, it is all cheeses, not just American ones, and cream cheese does in fact count as a cheese
Interestingly, a large majority of people that I have asked have said that they would rather give up oral sex forever than cheese. Though people give a wide variety of reasons for their decisions, the argument of the people who choose to give up oral sex pretty much boils down to “There are lots of ways I can have orgasms and only one way to have pizza/macaroni and cheese/tiramisu.”
It’s something to think about. Which would you choose and why?
