Comedienne Joan Rivers has passed away at 81, but her hilarious one-liners will live on forever. Never one to shy away from controversial topics, the groundbreaking funny lady — who wore many hats including actress, stand-up comic, writer, producer, and television host — really told it how it is (especially when it came to her sex life).

  1. "Want to know why women don't blink before foreplay? Not enough time."
