The "Selfish Hedonist" Big Tent

At breakfast yesterday, someone asked Keyes about one of the other people who can't procreate:
After his eight-minute speech, Keyes was asked if heterosexual couples who don't or can't have children are hedonists. "The heterosexual relationship is haunted by the possibility of the child, which means you have to commit yourself somewhere to your head to the possibility of a lifelong commitment that involves not only selfish pleasure but sometimes sacrifice."
Update: Sorry for the missing link. From the Sun-times.
