Back in the good old days, the phrase White Slave Trade was spoken of in hushed tones and those given to phantasy imagined camel caravans herded by despicable brigands Crossing the hot desert sands with their precious cargoes of flesh, sweet, nubile bodies of gorgeous maidens to be bartered on the open markets of the world. This was the primary method of recruitment whereby women were coerced into exchanging their bodies for money, a form of slavery in which the unfortunate girls obligated them- selves to the procurer to such • an extent, their sole salvation lay in making their sex available as a means of balancing the books. Nothing, perhaps, accounts for this change more than the thought that sex and love are but two sides of the same coin. One can exist without the other. Love remains the fundamental human idéal but sex, per se, represents a device that affords the individual an opportunity for untold rewards in terms of personal pleasure. It represents the epitome of fabulous sensa¬tions and indescribable titillations. It is equated with the ultimate thrill in a purely physical sense and this end product is more in demand than ever before. Furthermore, it is more available than ever, thanks to the notion that commerce in sex alone is not held to obviate the essence of love itself. Writers have tailored many phrases to describe the current generation. They have called it the "NOW GENERATION", the "IN" generation, and the "WITH IT" generation. It would be more direct and certainly more accurate to call it simply the "SEX" generation. Unquestionably, the world is more oriented to its sexual potential than ever before. It is a stage upon which the drama of men and women in search of pleasure climaxes in a burstof orgasmic splendor. Funding this pursuit of personal pleasure, and making it ail possible, are the countless millions who accept sex as a medium of adult exchange, those who find in the process of give-and-take a measure of magic that makes their lives far more rewarding and meaningful than ever before.
Carol and Tom Jackman are typical of the "SEX" generation. A good looking couple, happy with life and with each other but sensing the threat of boredom that over-comes many a modem marriage, they have turned their attention to new horizons. What they've done is to make a distinction between their spiritual love for each other and their physical cravings for sex with others.
As Carol explained it, "It isn't that we don't really love each other deeply. It's just that we both recognize the human desire to make it with a variety of partners. Nobody's hurt and it's just great . . . you know, new thrills, new techniques, new sounds and actions. Balling with another other guy is real kicky and yet when Tom and I make love it’s spécial. It's hard to explain, I guess, unless you've tried it yourself."
Tom was equally enthusiastic, "I know the so-called experts claim we're in some kind of an emotional retreat," he said, "but when I swing out with some chick, l'm not consciously trying to prove a damn thing. Lots of people get a kick out of driving a new car or touring new houses. I dig groovey broads. I can steer and tour without having to own them in any sense of the word. In a way, they make me appreciate Carol more than ever."
