How open is a discussion about sex for the people here? I don't mean just on the forums, I mean in general: how comfortable are you with talking about sex?

Who is this "they" you refer to?Pseudopod said:Sure I discuss sex all the time. I wonder why it's generally such a "taboo" subject, or at least an uncomfortable one. Maybe we are taught from birth to think that way? They say a woman reaches her sexual peak when she's around 30, not because of hormones but rather because it takes them that long to loosen up and be able to be free with their sexuality because they are taught from such a young age that sex is bad or shameful. Not sure I entirely agree with all that, but it's interesting nonetheless.
I think this is a very interesting question - from the cultural anthropology perspective, at least. I had to think hard about who I will and will not speak openly with about sex. I won't talk about it with my parents and certain older relatives.KingNothing said:How open is a discussion about sex for the people here?

Like I said, I don't talk about personal details. :rofl:Ivan Seeking said:I have no desire to talk publicly about whipped cream and chains. Just not gonna go there.
Nothing in the question implied it's only for those who have done it. I would hope people are able to talk about sex before they do it, otherwise they aren't going to be ready for it, either in terms of expectations, emotions, or disease/pregnancy prevention as applicable.JasonRox said:For alot of you here commenting, remember this is a question for those who have done it.
Yes, you're right. If they aren't comfortable talking about things, they shouldn't do it.KingNothing said:I'm open to talking about details, but only with someone mature. Like as in, they wont say "dude, sweet, how was she?" and stuff like that. But giving advice is fun. And yes, I'm a firm believer that if two people in a relationship aren't ready to talk about something, they certianly aren't ready to do it.
Very good point. I think a couple that intend to or are engaging in sex need to be able to discuss it openly between themselves. It is no one elses business though.KingNothing said:I'm a firm believer that if two people in a relationship aren't ready to talk about something, they certianly aren't ready to do it.
Jason, I'm impressed with you too. I didn't realize you guys had this level of maturity.JasonRox said:Yes, you're right. If they aren't comfortable talking about things, they shouldn't do it.
No offense, but all the advice I have ever heard was terrible. From experience (not many), that all girls are different and in some cases completely different.
You should never say what is good. You should always say what you can try. I learned my lesson on that one.
