This forum is called "Religion, Sex, and Politics". When do we get to talk about sex?

On the front page here I see about half politics, about a quarter religion, and most of the rest is either weird stuff that doesn't fit in anywhere else on BGG, lists of stuff we do, and making fun of Slater. The only time sex is ever discussed on here is when people are talking about rape or sexual abuse/assault.

And no, links to Salt N' Pepa videos do not double as discussion.

The joke is that the S stands for science (or if you are SpaceGhost, statistics).

Perhaps you might find talk about sex more productive with a real-live person who is likely to consent to be a partner for you.

Yes, because I my religious/political discussions end with you people as well. /sarcasm

I already do that. I wanted to expand that discussion.

Science is just the rigorous application of empirical statistics in most respects; statistics as a field covers that, the pure mathematics of it and the copious mountains of garbage written badly by people who don't know what they're talking about because they can't use the math or the science correctly.

Ever since we lost Lawson, there're have been no good sex threads.

and you were met by sarcasm because you offered no specific topic. Perhaps I could try and reproduce the undergrad lecture in which my physics prof made a lecture on friction (a topic which typically bored even the most ardent physics enthusiasts) by pointing out how sex is from a physical point of view entirely an application of friction?

BS. All Lawson did was get pissy when somebody didn't meet her standards of civility and express outrage over whatever she was outraged about that day. I liked her as an RSP semi-regular but her primary output was in trying to make people feel guilty for any morality different than hers.

She is a nice looking lady though. I imagine Barb as being even hotter.

You can talk about whatever you start a thread for. Complaining that other people aren't talking about something you want them to when you've made no effort to do so yourself seems rather passive aggressive.

Well, I was hoping for more of a paradigm shift, with more topics/at least one topic about it, but if you need a jumping-off point, I'd be happy to oblige;

I'm almost positive my (now 3-month old) son was conceived with a ball gag in his mother's mouth.

Discuss?

I was supposed to put the ball gag in her vagina? Interesting.

See? I'm learning!

I've talked about sex a fair amount, but while it's one of my favorite topics in the right circumstances I don't generally care to get specific on an Internet forum for a variety of reasons. Thus, my rSp discussions tend to be on things like sexual orientation or other general topics.

Odd, I am sure it's been redefined as Slater.

They talk about gay RIGHTS a lot. I'm not sure I've seen any discussions of gay sex on here.

Seems to me that if you object to gayness you are objecting to the sin (sex).

Sex, overall, is pretty boring unless you're the one doing it. I suspect that's why we don't get a lot of sex threads that aren't about rape. Gay sex is even more boring, well, M2M anyway. I'd imagine that's because so few people actually do gay sex. The more reliable (non-political) studies estimate that actual gays are under 3% of the US population. That doesn't account for people who tried it once, twice or only when stoned and it definitely ignores the college freshman lesbian phenomena, which has been going strong now for 20 years.

To be fair though, I think most college freshman lesbians now are actually just turning a buck online.

So if you take out rape, dick-to-dick, and weird shit like ball gags and punching, what's left is gamer sex. Wheezing fat people sliding around in a pool of sweaty sheets, one hand on a tit, the other clutching a rescue inhaler as they forcefully keep their eyes shut and imagine they're really fucking a manga hottie while riding an MLP over a rainbow.

Orgasm is usually followed by an emergency ration of Cheetos and a gallon of ice cold Dew.

It doesn't really seem like there's a whole lot to talk about. Religion and politics are controversial and people have strong opinions all over the map.

Maybe it's just me, but I think it's hard for sex talk to draw much discussion because what are we going to talk about? You can only have an orgasm if you're wearing a diaper and a pacifier/gag while being spanked? Okay. I don't have anything to add to that. You can't really criticize someone's fetishes and how many times can you just list your own?

I think that's why the "sex" part pretty much is left up to things like rape and abuse. Things that everyone agrees are wrong but that there might be strong conflicting opinions about what constitutes them. Gender in society also comes into it but those tend to stray more into P than S.

I remember standing at my booth during GenCon back in the 80's and thinking to myself, "These people are all having sex at night."

Go to GenCon to see what I mean. The flip side of the coin is - they're my people. Gamers. The ones I typically like the most. But I most certainly don't want to know too much about their sex lives.
