Physics is the science of sex.

I have an anonymous friend who writes erotica. In response to a joking challenge to eroticize a physics paper, I got the following reply which I thought too good not to share:
I had to look up what physics are exactly….here’s what wiki said:
"Physics (Greek: physis – φύσις meaning "nature") is a natural science; it is the study of matter and its motion through spacetime and all that derives from these, such as energy and force. More broadly, it is the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the world and universe behave."
So basically it’s just the science of sex (isn’t that what natural science means?). The study of people as they go through space and time…. so a fantasy book in spaceships, and the energy and force …well, both parties need the energy for sex and the force depends on how rough they like it. The last line is the analysis of sex, how it’s conducted and how it affects the world and universe around us. So lust, betrayal, passion, love, it’s all in there. See? It doesn’t sound boring at all!
