if they can fuck they are fine

Stuart Schneiderman’s book is composed mostly of quotable quotes:

As long as you can accomplish the act of heterosexual intercourse with a reasonable degree of proficiency, you are immune from judgment about sexual performance and, by extension, from judgment about sanity. That the ability to copulate is not clinically a meaningful indicator of much of anything has not shaken people’s belief that if they can fuck they are fine; they are judged healthy, with all that implies about the fulfillment of life.
