What Is It About Sex Part 2.

Tue Jun 19, 2001 8:47 am

What is it about sex that people find so obscene and dirty? It's all natural, everybody has it, it's necessary for people to continue to reproduce, so why do you think it's bad, obscene and dirty?

Well, I think it's only obscene when it's in a movie where that's all they do is have sex. I mean..isn't it supposed to be special and shared by those people doing it? I don't know..maybe I'm alone on this one.

An-225:

That is the $64,000 question.
Honestly, I do not know. I'm sure that what Hawaiibelle said has a lot to do with it. But I also think that it is because sex is truly the one and only "intimate and personal bond" (or whatever you want to call it) that two people can share. Nothing else is really private or sacred.

I would have to agree that cheap sex personified (and glorified) by TV and the movies (and all the conformity whores that patronize them) is an obscene abomination.

That does not mean that I am opposed to sex by any stretch of the imagination. Quite frankly, I can't think of anything (except for maybe a good airplane photo shoot) that makes you feel better than by being intimate with THE PERSON YOU LOVE. Sure, your one night stands that you can harvest from your local bar may be good for a quick and momentary thrill, but in the end, there is no meaning, and with time and repetition, you eventually become spritually and mentally empty. I speak from experience on this.

I've had my share of one night flings. Did I enjoy them?
At the time, yes.

Am I proud of it?

No.

Did I gain any long term gratification?

Again, a resounding no.

Nothing beats monogamy with someone who you truly care about. There is no shame. No guilt. No worries. No head games. If two people can be together, and only with each other, I think that is the best thing in the world.

Sex, like anything else can be disgraceful and can be a good thing. To say 'sex is good, why are people uptight about it?' is a vague and incomplete statement.

Sex is farm animals, the unwilling, and very close blood relatives is bad.

Adultry, promiscuity? Depends on the circumstances.

I agree, Matt, caring about a person makes sex even better. But ultimately, it's your own business, and forcing your sex values and beliefs on other people is not good.

That's why I am against censorship of any kind.

Sex in the end is all about three things:
1) reproduction
2) bonding
3) power

the three are often combined. What we see in war with largescale rape of the female part of the conquered population is an attempt (maybe unconscious) to assert power over the conquered and bind them to your people by interbreeding.
Sex between loving partners is bonding as well as (sometimes) an attempt to reproduce.

etc.

Ok, I am in eight grade now. A lot of what the other eight graders talk about is sex, I have no Idea why. Yeah I think about it sometimes, but I don't go and talk about how I would like to bone this chick in class or something, and all they care about is looks, I care about personality and looks and humor. I don't only base things on looks. I think it's a plus that a chick looks good.

Peeing is a natural thing too, but some things shouldn't always be shown in public!

Well, IMHO, 75% of the guys who talk about sex at school aren't getting any. I think that is just their way of making up not getting any action. Where as i think that 75% of the guys who are having sex, pretty regularly dont talk about it. Just my opinions though.

Back to the question. I think that it is probably mostly the people 40+ who think sex shouldn't be talked about and are "shy" about discussing it. The "new" generations dont have a problem with it, i think.

yea i agree totally Malibu Air. i believe part of the prob is how sex is usually portayed : in the movies and on tv. hell, nobody on beverly hills or in the movies ever gets AIDS or herpes . . .that would make it unclean and dirty ~ which would mean it wouldn't be glorious anymore. what needs to happen is that parents need to talk to their kids about sex early on, before they are able to comprehend much of what the media is throwing them about it. after all if i had a son/daughter i would want him or her to learn about it from me or a family member before he or she goes and listens to an eminem CD or from some trash-talker at the playground. i think if sex was just presented more realistically and there was better education about it then most of its bad-rap would fade.


just my two cents anyway

I know an older couple. They have 2 sons, ages 14 and 12 respectively. Both the mother and father are doing exactly what I would do if I ever have kids: they are tackling this issue head on.

Buying a Playboy subscription for the sons. Giving them their own "outlet" so to speak. They are sending the message that it's normal to have certain "urges" at that age, and that there is nothing wrong with it, as well as allowing the boys to see what the world is all about, in private, without parental embarrasment, and when they are comfortable.

When the two sons go out on a date, either the mother or father hands them a pack of Trojans, and tells them "if you're going to do it, like we know you will eventually, no matter what we say, please be careful.

Now before all of you lefties jump all over me saying that I'm a hypocrite vis-a-vis condom handouts in school, let me categorically and emphatically state that there is a BIG difference here. This is a parental involvement issue. How the parents choose to teach the facts of life is their choice. The schools have no business doing this.
