Quote of the Day

“If you had an understanding of the play, the vagina becomes the least significant thing,” [“Vagina Monologues” author Eve] Ensler says. “I am trying for the life of me [to understand] how anybody can protest what V-Day is,” she says. “I have no idea why we have a conservative element in this country that doesn’t believe in sex, that opposes masturbation, that thinks homosexuality and lesbians are evil. I think sexuality is healthy and gorgeous and delicious.”

–Ms. Ensler expresses consternation in today’s Washington Post that some students don’t find her play a romantic alternative to Valentine’s Day.
