Last year I purchased this book from Amazon on a whim because of its quirky title. I must admit that the fact that Isaac Asimov wrote this was also compelling. Something was not right, so I was curious to read this book. My copy was by Signet; Sixth Printing edition (June 1, 1972). I discovered the hilarity and wit that Dr. Isaac Asimov can convey.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, the great Supreme Court Justice, in his last years (he lived to be ninety-four), was walking down Pennsylvania Avenue with a friend, when a pretty girl passed. As all dirty old men must, especially when the dignity of the Supreme Court is at stake, Holmes turned to look after her. Having done so, he sighed and said to his friend, “Ah, George, what wouldn’t I give to be seventy-five again?” ~ Isaac Asimov from The Sensuous Dirty Old Man
The very famous quote: “Sex is dirty, if you do it right” is from this book. Tip of the hat to Eolake Stobblehouse for the idea for this post.
