We are in a Brave New World just like the one Huxley depicted in his book. In the book, the government encourages sexual promiscuity and the use government-provided "soma" as a sexual aid. Now in the Democratic Party, birth control pills are a fundamental human right.
Bonus points to whoever knows where number 26 comes from: 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
"Recreational sex is an integral part of society. According to the World State, sex is a social activity, rather than a means of reproduction (sex is encouraged from early childhood). The few women who can reproduce are conditioned to use birth control (a "Malthusian belt", resembling a cartridge belt holding "the regulation supply of contraceptives", is a popular fashion accessory). The maxim "everyone belongs to everyone else" is repeated often, and the idea of a "family" is considered pornographic; sexual competition and emotional, romantic relationships are rendered obsolete because they are no longer needed. Marriage, natural birth, parenthood, and pregnancy are considered too obscene to be mentioned in casual conversation. Thus, society has developed a new idea of reproductive comprehension."
