I never thought I’d mention this name on ErosBlog, but it’s important! Yesterday we learned than Rush Limbaugh actually understands consent:

You know what the magic word, the only thing that matters in American sexual mores today is? One thing. You can do anything, the left will promote and understand and tolerate anything, as long as there is one element. Do you know what it is? Consent. If there is consent on both or all three or all four, however many are involved in the sex act, it’s perfectly fine. Whatever it is. But if the left ever senses and smells that there’s no consent in part of the equation then here come the rape police.

Of course I don’t think our still-emerging social consensus on the importance of consent is really a left/right issue, especially given that there are economic notions tied up in that ancient false dichotomy that are entirely irrelevant to the consent discussion. No, I think it’s more of a generational thing. The kids (most of them) are all right, it’s the people between my generation and that of the Orange Menace who are still struggling with the new primacy of consent as the overriding ethical value to be considered in evaluating sexual conduct.
