“Programming is like sex: One mistake and you have to support it for the rest of your life”

"Programming is like sex: One mistake and you have to support it for the rest of your life” is a jocular programming saying that has been printed on many images. Michael Sinz (Amiga Software Engineer) posted on the saying on the newsgroup comp.sys.amiga.programmer on June 4, 1991.
