    It swings in roundabouts but mostly you can thank the Abrhamic faiths for it in todays society. Most ancient cultures Rome, Celts, Greeks etc had no problem with sex.

    Along comes Christianity and Islam and suddenly its "bad" and "sinful" and "your going to hell"

    Though for the last 50 years or so is been coming away from that "dont talk about it" attitude

    You're most definitely wrong. For Christians, sex before marriage is a sin. Sex itself isn't sinful or 'bad'.

    Probably due to religion's influence. It shouldn't be though.

    Same for all Abrahamic religions. However I do think it's a bit daft - all the weird restrictions and stuff are what initially made me sketchy about religion.

    Because humans are not animals? We have class, intelligence, modesty, civilisation, WE ARE HUMAN.. Would you want to watch others pop their cherries or even watch with your own eyes, your parents producing your next sibling?

    Even some animals have some conception of privacy and decorum. I don't think they follow Baby J.

    We are animals.

    I think what OP means, and I agree, sex should not a taboo subject - we should be able to talk about it without people being disgusted or whatever. Doesn't mean we want it to the extent you do but yeah.

    We are animals with class, intelligence, modesty, and civilisation. They're not mutually exclusive.

    You have to admit that we're alive, and examining the kingdoms of life, we're sure as hell not fungi, plants, bacteria, or protists. We are categorically animals.

    Oh i know I am not.

    it should only be done for procreation, notsomuch for pleasure, it forbids homosexual intercourse and limits the amount of pleasure to be derived from sex in general.
