    So, you believe that further liberalising restraints on sex is not even remotely an infringement of morality? From your attitude on this matter it seems evident that you follow Jeremy Bentham's idea of utilitarianism due to your presumption that something which does not cause harm is therefore acceptable (with exceptions, as all secular things naturally come with).

    Sex education is not a substantial influence over youth decisions to have sex. The abuse of sex is a result of a liberal 'open-door policy' with the media glorifying crude versions of love and lust. Around 75% of popular songs inspire lust.
    This was not directed at me, but that is what I believe. How can safe sex between consenting adults be considered in any way "immoral"? The mind... it boggles.

    You consider 14-year-olds adults? If they were 18 then I would be more inclined to tolerate consensual sex.

    I was replying to your point as a standalone point. :p: I didn't read it in context, whoops...

    (But tbh, I can't think of anything immoral about 14 year olds having sex with other 14 year olds.)

    Then it seems clear that you and I possess fundamentally different philosophies. Yours is arguably an ultra-liberal one, whereas mine is ultimately traditional. I cannot find anything reasonable in someone so young having sex when they have not even acquired maturity, education or long-term awareness of the possible consequences of pregnancy. It seems to me that liberals jump for a gun whenever they hear something criticising the idea of ultimate freedom; sadly, this concept is but a fantasy and will never be in accordance with an efficient, moral and productive society.

    Lolllll if having sex with an animal watching is your idea of spicing it up, no wonder you're bored. :p:

    Roughly how many times would you estimate you've had sex? Just wondering 'cause you said "When you've had sex as many times as I have"...



    Oooo, I'm not sure. If I were to really think back and then average it out... I'd guess over nine thousand times or so.

    So you've had sex five times a day since you were 16? Three times a day since you were 13? Once a day since you were born? You trollin' or lying about your age on your profile?

    Do you also think the social expectation in our society is rotten, with influences from the media; call me old fashioned - its driving reckless spree of pleasure seeking, and pressuring young people into sex early. It surprises me how early some friends started.

    I'm a guy and inclined to wait for someone to whom I see a future with, even thougn sex it's just sex. What's your take?
    Couldn't agree more - don't rush into things you'll regret! I waited for the right person and because of that have no regrets about my choices. There are a lot of pressures on teenagers these days, and it can take a lot not to succumb to them but it is worth it when you find the right person and it feels amazing.

    Of course, not everyone feels the same way and we should respect this just as equally if they aren't hurting anyone in the process.

    That is correct, why should something which does not cause harm be unacceptable? It makes no rational sense. It's got nothing to do with morality.

    I just don't see how consensual safe sex can ever be immoral.

    There are some crimes that involve consent but no harm, such as pornography and prostitution.

    My 'point' is that modern technology (televisions and radio) as well as the liberal media are primarily to blame for the excess of sex today.

    Sex is like a lot of other things.

    With someone special it means one thing, it's a representation of intamicy and love, aswell as getting your rocks off.

    With someone you don't care about in that way, it's getting your rocks off.

    I personally don't see a problem with enjoying casua sex, so long as it's done responsibley, and you are ready for any and all consequences of it.
