Last night I had dinner with Casey and Dan, and someone mentioned post-coital depression. I don’t experience it.

Today I finishing reading The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, and as I finished the last page I immediately recognized a feeling of sadness within myself. I have been reading the book daily for about a week, and became very attached to the characters. I always experience a post-novel depression with such long books.

Thinking about this, I did a search and found an article mentioning post-coital depression, which advises one to “Try to avoid sudden entry without foreplay,” and “Avoid jumping up immediately after orgasm and rushing off ….” The book begins with describing a character in his later years, and ends with a character abruptly departing.

I don’t really have a point, but I think if I did it would be “books are sexy.”
