Why do you have this opinion? Perhaps ten minutes wasted reading Mensa's Home Page would help, or if you learned that Isaac Asimov used to be one of the poster children for Mensa.

I'm curious about something that you imply. I don't actually believe that a person with a high IQ should be locked into some sort of public service job, (just because some test somewhere said he was smarter... [one of the things about Mensans that most people don't know is that a huge proportion of Mensans are in prison, or driving a truck.]) So, if Mensans should be doing "Public Service" stuff, What should "Sexy People" be doing? Running Strip Clubs?

If an actress "can be sexy on screen", or an author can write a sexy character in a book, it should be possible for that actress or author (or even you) to describe the "rules of Sexuality" which make that performance or character "Sexy", n'est pas?

So, one more time. What is "Sexy".

Try reading them aloud. I was taught that punctuation is to aid in the reader's understanding what I meant them to hear. As though I spoke the words to them in a conversation. And yes, I have been accused of "making up" my own punctuation.
