"War on sex"? What world are you living in?
Almost every movie made has sex in it, or at least sexual innuendos / erotic acts... Even Harry Potter and Disney / Pixar films. War on sex? You mean
those commercials I see with nearly naked women claiming I should drink Pepsi? If there even IS a "war on sex", sex is clearly winning... so you can
Why don't you just rename this thread what it's really about; "I wanna have sex with kids / in public / get laid without having to court the person
/ see naked women everywhere, etc"? Everyone that argues "sex is natural and should be everywhere" usually fall into at least one of the following
1. They wanna diddle kids / young teens.
2. They just wanna oogle topless women.
3. They can't get laid with our views of sex as it currently is.
Which one are you?
You think sex is winning this "war" because it is used in advertising and media? Let me ask you this.. why do you think all these HUGE companies,
commercials, films etc are overflowing with sex appeal?
But what makes it such a GREAT seller?
The answer is... sexually repressed people! Maybe on an ECONOMIC level, sex is seen as acceptable. On a SOCIAL level, sex is completely vilified.
Don't believe me? Look at this thread. Look at people throwing out names like "whores" and referring to sexual liberation as "poking anything that
It is really simple to see once you think about it. On a social level, there are definite pressures to maintain a level of prudence. Look at how often
females can point out someone in her circle of friends and label her the "slutty one." That seems like an observation to some people, but that label
is actually a direct attack on that persons individuality. How does someone feel when their individuality is attacked? They feel threatened. What
happens when a person is constantly rejected by their peers over a certain aspect of their self? They either repress the part of their self that makes
people call them "different," or they risk being isolated and judged in their social groups. Now imagine this on a LARGE scale, with people of all
sorts of unique sexual desires feeling like freaks for having certain sexual desires and being forced to repress them.
That was only ONE example of sex being attacked. How about porn? You'll see many articles claiming that porn is the cause of ruined sex lives in many
marriages. These articles are so horribly misleading. With the exception of a few people who may have general problems with addiction as a personality
trait, porn has nothing to do with a couples ruined sex life. It is MUCH more likely the relationship with sex issues has communication as well as
many other issues unrelated to porn.
I could go on but I don't want to get off topic, I just wanted to show how sex actually isn't winning the war at all. It is ONLY winning if its sole
purpose is to make profit. On personal, social, and intimate levels it is failing on a LARGE scale.
And for the record, I don't care to have sex with kids or any of the other nonsense you typed. However, it seems incredibly insensitive, naive and
immature to jump to such conclusions about an entire group of people over their opinion about something. Let me tell you something else. In response
to your poorly thought out numbered list, I have had the unfortunate experiences in my lifetime of encountering several sex offenders, none of whom
ever spoke a word openly about how sex should be "everywhere" as you put it.
Okay, I get it. It's really easy to be angry and threatened about sex when so many other people are shivering in their bones right there with you
holding your hand telling you it's okay to be scared. But when it comes down to it, sex is going to mean something different to each and every
person. To try and deny or suppress anothers sexuality is a cruel and sadistic act (just as long as this person isn't hurting others!)
