(NSFW) A no-taboo approach to sexual education and health.

Sex for fun and non-procreation!

In this world, we can't get away from religion. We've been exposed to false information regarding contraception failure rates and experienced the STD scare tactics. Some of us may even have gone through abstinence-only sex education!

Here in Secular Sexuality we will discuss:

-sexual health in light of peer-reviewed science
-safe for work guides on safe(r) sex (or links)
-questions that would shock the religious

Exactly Joseph :)

It can still be a kink / fetish though. ;)

Hmm.  I'd have to read it again.  I don't remember it at all.  I consider a sexual fantasy to be something that you're not already getting or have gotten on a regular basis.  Once you have a partner who enjoys the same sort of thing and participates in your fantasy periodically, it stops becoming a fantasy and starts being something that you do.

middle of the night hey! :P


As I said, it's his definition of fantasy I had issues with, it was just such xtian definition! It smelt like a definition by a religious prude... :(  I can't be bothered to return to the bloody thing and find it, I just remember rolling my eyes upon reading it.

How so?  I'm not following you.  How does asking if you've fulfilled any of your fantasies have anything to do with faith?


Admittedly, I don't remember a lot of the details of what each section was like.  I did it in the middle of the night.

Comment by TNT666 on January 17, 2011 at 9:47pm
The definition of fantasy was pretty woo woo too, totally faith based!
Comment by Joseph P on January 17, 2011 at 9:43pm

Same here, although 'moderate' is relative.  My parents dragged us to church every single week, but it didn't affect our home life much.  It was constant, but not fundamentalist or anything.


For the second half, I interpreted 'leaving the faith' as when I was finally able to chuck the whole thing, which was either 14 or 18, depending upon how you look at it.  Either way, there was zero change, before and after.


I bet I helped make the fetish section a little bit more weird, too.

I stopped midway through the survey, as like some below, most of the questions weren't relevant to me, as even though I grew up in a moderately Christian household, I was never a believer.

I just finished taking it. Taking the time to think about the answers gave me some insight into myself and just how little influence religion has had on my life. I too ran into a lot of questions that by their wording did not apply to me, so I answered the best I could and added a lot of explanatory comments.
Comment by TNT666 on January 17, 2011 at 2:46am

Oh that was a horribly designed survey! Comletely biased questions. N/A options usually missing. The youth questions were overly vague. And possibly the most revealing question... at what age did you leave religion (relevant to sexual morals) had an answer scheme limited to "since adolescence". The pre-teen years make a huge difference in one's ethical code and the surveyor made a major booboo there.


The questionaire was simply not designed to handle people who had NEVER been religious. Even tho it tried unsuccessfully to accomodate. I ended answering "other" to nearly every question...
