Marc wonders if dating is still about having sex as soon as possible, as often as possible. (2:59)

BUT I'VE BEEN, UH,

I'VE BEEN DATING,OR SEXUALLY ACTING OUT, UM...

(laughter)

IT'S NOT CLEAR TO ME.

IT DEPENDS WHICH PARADIGMYOU SUBSCRIBE TO.

YOU KNOW, BE IT PSYCHOTHERAPYOR ROMANCE.

BUT MAYBE I DON'T UNDERSTANDANYMORE.

I'VE BEEN MARRIEDA COUPLE TIMES,

AND IS DATING STILL ABOUTHAVING SEX AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE, OR...

NO, IS IT?

I--I--SEE NO ONE'S GONNAANSWER THAT QUESTION

'CAUSE WHY?

I THINK IT ISON SOME LEVEL.

BUT I DO FIND THAT IF YOU DOTHAT IT MAKES IT HARD--

EVERYTHING MOVES TOO FAST.

LIKE, IF I MEET SOMEBODYAND WE HAVE SEX

AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLEAS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE,

WHAT HAPPENS IS YOU DO THATFOR COUPLE OF WEEKS,

AND YOU HIT THAT WALLWHERE YOU'RE LIKE,

"I DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU."

AND SHE'S LIKE,"I DON'T KNOW YOU, EITHER."

AND THEN YOU TRAUMA BONDFOR LIKE AN HOUR, YOU KNOW?

(laughter and applause)

WELL, MY DAD'S MANIC-DEPRESSIVEAND, YEAH,

MY MOM HAS AN EATING DISORDERAND THEN SHE'S LIKE,

"OH, MY GOD, I HAVEAN EATING DISORDER."

I'M LIKE,"OF COURSE YOU DO."

(laughter)

AND THEN YOU HAVE SEXFOR A COUPLE MORE WEEKS

TILL YOU HAVE TO OVERCOME

THE FIRST MINOROBSTACLE TOGETHER,

LIKE, "HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKETORTILLA CHIPS?

"THAT'S SO WEIRD.

"WERE YOU ABUSED BY A MEXICAN?

"BECAUSE THATSHOULD HAVE COME OUT

DURING THE TRAUMA BONDING,IF THAT'S THE CASE."

(laughter)

I NOTICE A FEW OF YOUGOT A LITTLE WEIRD

WHEN I MENTIONED "MEXICAN"OUT OF--YOU KNOW,

IN THE CONTEXTI MENTIONED IT IN.

LIKE, YOU DIDN'T KNOWWHAT TO DO WITH THAT.

I'M NOT A RACIST.

I'M NERVOUS.

(laughter)

BUT I'M NOT A RACIST.

IT'S REALLY CASE BY CASE.IT'S NOT ETHNICITY-SPECIFIC.

OR--IT'S JUST THE WAY I REACTTO THINGS THAT ARE DIFFERENT.

I THINK THAT'S NORMAL.

EVERYONE'S NERVOUS WHENTHEY'RE CONFRONTED WITH THINGS

THAT THEY DON'T UNDERSTANDOR ARE DIFFERENT.

THAT'S A NORMAL HUMAN REACTION.

IT DOESN'T BECOME RACISTTILL YOU SAY THINGS LIKE,

"OH.THERE'S A LOT OF 'EM."

(laughter)

AND I THINK EVERYBODY'SA LITTLE RACIST.

ESPECIALLY PEOPLE WHO SAY THIS--"I'M NOT RACIST."

THEY'RE ALWAYSA LITTLE RACIST.

HERE'S HOW YOU CAN FIND OUTIF YOU'RE A LITTLE RACIST.

THIS IS HOW I FOUND OUT.ALL RIGHT?

NEXT TIMEYOU LOSE SOMETHING

THAT YOU THINKHAS BEEN STOLEN...

(light laughter)

WHEN YOU GO TO RETRACEYOUR STEPS,

SEE HOW YOU CAST THAT SHORTMYSTERY FILM IN YOUR HEAD.

(laughter)

HOW MANY ETHNIC TYPESDO YOU USE

IN THE LEADING ROLESOF THAT MOVIE?

HOW MANY BLACKS AND LATINOSDO YOU GET THROUGH

BEFORE YOU FINALLYHEAR YOURSELF SAY,

"OH, CRAP, HERE IT ISUNDER THE CAR SEAT."

(laughter)

I'M AN IDIOT!

AND I'M A LITTLE RACIST.

(laughter)

BUT I'M NOT GONNA TELLMY ONE BLACK FRIEND...

WHO I THOUGHT STOLE THIS.

(laughter)
