Now that I have your attention… Why is American society so uncomfortable about sex? It’s cool if adolescents want to kill each other via game console, but forget about porn. Why do we avoid perhaps the most natural thing humans can do?
I think we avoid it because culturally, the generations before us were afraid of it. And since they raised us and therefore represented the authority figures when we were developing, we in turn developed a fear/ uncomfortability with it. Now when I saw we, I mean younger generations. And when I speak in generalities I mean only to appeal to the general conception of what American society is perceived as these days.
I also think that television censorship of sexual situations/ images perpetuates the interest in it and therefore creates a cognitive dissonance. Either you’re a sex loving whore or a prude moralist. Its an unfair dichotomy but I think that its absurdity may be a partially why things like this website exist today.
puritanical beginnings, nuff said.
but on a serious note, given the trend of not breaking molds, and perpetuating things with each new generation, the duality between our obsession with sex and the uncomfortability factor is only a natural progression of said beginnings
I want to blame religion but that might be a little too broad and too shallow. The monogamist view definitely screws with people’s heads.
Humans are one of the only animals that engage in sexuality purely for pleasure. This stems from our how we evolved as sexually liberated collectives who deliberately inter-mated. The colony parented the young. Not the biological mother and father.
There might have been a certain attachment to mother and father but I don’t want to get into that right now as it’s off topic – but breaking from that way of life could have been what started the idea that it was okay to be possessive of other people.
@lolivia, Watching other people have sex other a computer isnt exactly ‘natural’.
A good place to start would be babies, stds, and the money and convenient of dealing with both of those.
Killing people, kills people. Sex creates unwanted people who become a burden to their own creators regardless of if they are wanted or not. Sex spreads disease, and sex decides what genes get passed on and which dont. Killing people eliminates genes, but it doesnt pass any on.
Destruction versus Construction. Do you want to be buried alive, or thin the herd?
But really, sex is weird in North America REALLY because sex sells so you know they arent going to give it away for free. Sex is something that is all over POOR countries because when you have nothing, you still have sex. North Americans like to think that theyre above acting like primal animals and thusforth try to distance themselves from associating with such. . .sex is a biggie.
Not everyone is going to like cocaine. Not everyone would WANT to try cocaine if they never had before. . .but everybody is born to want sex. It is like birthing a society of crack babies, everyone needs it so theres tons of money to be made trying to with hold it.
Unlike water and air, which you also need, you wont die without sex which is also rather convenient.
Im getting tired. What do you think?
Funny, I don’t see anyone here uncomfortable about sex. Nice way to start a thread though. Someone needs to get laid.
@lolivia, There are indeed things that make people feel uncomfortable, sex is usually an issue when it lowers someone’s self-esteem. It really shouldn’t, but go figure human stupidity. Some people are so obsessed with sex that can’t figure out how to get it, thinking more about fucking than learning how to just enjoy their time with another human being.
This got hilarious really fast.
I’m certain that, were you really interested, you could have a partner to engage relatively quickly. This is because of your picture and because you are a female.
If sex is the issue, there is no issue. Otherwise, what’s stopping you from finding a mate.
@lytning91, “This got hilarious really fast.”
It was hilarious before it even happened.
Now its just overkill. Why would anyone feel the need to ask something like this?
Is it actually that much of a mystery.
Its like walking into a library full of students working on different philosophy courses plastered and yelling GUESS WHAT>?!? EVERYTHING IS, AND EVERYTHING ISNT! ALL AT THE SAME TIME! BET YOU NEVER THOUGHT OF THAT FUCKERS!
Its just obnoxious. lol. Hilarious. . .but obnoxious and incredibly pointless.
I am a little confused about this problem actually. Now I’m gonna say something that would probably sound really fucking dumb, but I truly believe in it. There is no better way of relieving stress than sex, love-making to be exact. It has healing powers and that’s why a lot of people just prefer to “use” each other. The whole point of sex is stimulating all the senses, getting off. And sexuality being the most essential thing puts sex on a pedestal. But there is also a lot of fear going on regarding sex and let’s not forget that privacy over the last years has just changed dramatically. We’re constantly attacked with photos of couples showing off how great to not feel empty is(posting a photo of your incredible family would be nice, but not every boyfriend you get, seriously, stop it), and porn is just EVERYWHERE! What I mean by the changing of privacy is that it’s changing its definition. Mainly because of facebook and youtube, the Internet. I don’t know if people realize that, I may be deluding myself and state something completely wrong here, but people choose to show off their own relationships and problems publicly more and more, yet they feel lonely as fuck when I speak to them? And they wonder why they go crazy after that. And in my opinion that leads to a lot of insecurity and prejudice, leading a fucked up life while pretending that it’s just perfect. Not to mention that some people are completely out of control and wonder why they fuck up all their relationships. Too much casual fucking going on, too much internet sites for dating and “finding your true love”, a big fucking illusion that censorship exists, yet everyone has opinion about morals. Maybe I’m just thinking like a little sniveling bitch. :D But that’s why I prefer to find someone to love and trust first, complicating things really makes me feel uncomfortable. And an intrusive behavior of a woman that wants to fuck my brains out mostly makes me run the fuck away in fear! Seriously, fuck parades. Everyone needs love of some sort first. Everything else comes after love.
@lolivia, well, interesting question. i think its an ingrained fear that most sexual acts are sin. the bible has deep roots in america. im sure the cause is a lot of mixed reasons, same reason that gays are view so negative, not trying to bash the bible, but that seems to be the root of quite a few negative things today.
