The French seem to speak the universal language of love, but the universal language isn't what one should be thinking of when one thinks of the French, apparently, according to the latest hot, absolutely necessary research study. In fact, the word for it is also French: ennui.
According to Hollywood, or perhaps popular wishful thinking, French men are great lovers, but aren't to be outdone by French women. Unfortunately, if the latest study is to believed, the majority are as not-tonight-dear as any other culture. Perhaps yet another illusion we have to give up: the envy that people somewhere are living the life we'd live if it weren't for late-nite TV.
Naturally, in a fully civic-minded effort, French Pharma will be advertising for ways to goose up the activity level. Another chance at maintenance meds, lifelong supplements (to blue movies, we assume).
Science on the march! Soon, the whispers will be angry rather than defensive: "What? Again??!"
