In some cases, the marital life is not entirely satisfying,
because one's mate is not that interested in the ideas you
are interested in, and making love with other people you
like in ordinary way - not an option.
So, here is a way how to keep romantic relationships
with people who like each
other: Instead of exchanging
"genes", exchange "memes" - cultural analogues
(I use the word 'meme' here in wider sense by including
common experiences, because one's ideas are highly
influenced by experiences. For example, exchanging
movies and books may create common experiences that
lead to similar attitudes, ideology, etc.)
In order to explicitly indicate that the reason you share
certain things (memetic items) with another person is
influenced by your romantic feelings toward that person,
and is shared with that intent of "making love in form of
exchange of 'memes' rather than 'genes'", use the "<3"
symbol in front of your message.
Baked? Maybe, but the "<3" symbol is highly ambiguous.
This is an idea of its special use with a very concrete
Meme described. [Inyuki, Jan 13 2012]

"Enjoy Good, Clean Memetic Sex"
Related: In the book "Mind performance hacks", by Ron Hale-Evans, the idea of memetic sex is well elaborated. [Inyuki, Feb 11 2012]

||Coincidentally, the Halfbakery tagline that showed up while I was reading this was, "No, not THAT kind of baked." I'm thinking in this case the tagline was wrong.
