15. For all I know this is a true story...
I read it in the media (you know how they are) a couple
of years ago...

There was a couple who desperately wanted to have children.
They were middle aged, married, and "had been sleeping together"
for a few years.

They went to a fertility clinic to see if there was a problem
and it turned out they knew nothing about sex and had therefore
never performed the act necessary to conceive.

In my opinion this is a very tragic story. However, with a little
counseling they got what they wanted.
