Topic: Do the wealthy have better sex?

Philip Weiss:  I don’t know. Do you know?  I don’t know if they do. Let’s see. Do wealthy people have better sex?  No. I think that sex is the opera of the poor. That’s what the Italians say. So I think that that’s one of the things you get if you’re poor and I think the wealthy people tend to be a little too busy to have good sex
