Consensual Necrophilia

kventling

In case there's uncertainty here, I'll provide some definitions: Consensual: relating to or involving consent, esp. mutual consent. In this case, consent would be acquired before the person's demise, and will require the signature of both the person whose body is to be used and the proposed partner. Both would have to be in their right minds before providing their consent. Necrophilia: sexual intercourse with or attraction toward corpses. In this case, it would embody the former mainly, wi...

Should Forced Circumcision be banned

Sukhmeet
msheahan99

I think circumcision should be banned because it leads to an innocent infant having one of their body parts cut off, and for those that think that it is good for your child's well-being and lessens their sexual pleasure than you are wrong miserably, when a little kid gets circumcised they cry like crazy, and if you are fighting for circumcision than you clearly don't care about the well being of your child, debate this if you can I am challenging anyone who can give a logical debate on this!...

Bestiality should be illegal

ADreamOfLiberty
Logical-Master

Many people have complained about the restrictive nature of my previous arguments for the proper legality of bestiality. Said restrictions were necessary to make a positive case since in reality the default is that something should be legal and acceptable until proven otherwise.This debate is a chance for those who think they can make the case from scratch. No moral or legal standard is given, pro will have to present their own and support it.BoP is on Pro to show th...
