One way or another, by way of gadgets or homosexuality, sex is becoming more recreative than procreative. It might still be too early to declare 'No conventional sex please, we're British'. But there's little doubt that aspects of malehood are in ways getting more replaceable than they were, prompting many to allege it's an important factor behind the decline in population in many European countries.

Ease with bodies of the same sex is for increasing numbers now a social indulgence, migrating from the permitted to the permissive. Sarah Brown, wife of Prime Minister Gordon Brown, joined the gay pride march in London a week ago to signal her approval. Both Brown and Conservative Party leader David Cameron attended other gay events to stamp theirs—gay votes add up to far too many to lose. A 2003 survey showed that 13 per cent of Brits had had homosexual sex, a higher number who have not declared themselves and another lot who have not, so far, acted on those urges. The seminal Kinsey report had found that 46 per cent of those it surveyed in the US had reacted sexually to others of the same sex, and that 37 per cent had had at least one homosexual experience, though only 4 per cent had declared themselves gay by 2008. Given a new legitimacy, more and more gays are now coming out of their closets, and they are stepping out boldly, even fashionably.
