An all natural topic that still stimulates anxiety among Americans. Why are Americans still hesitant on the topic, but are quick to buy its products of influence? Impotency among men haunt the very couches of your local shrinks. (Women not being able to achieve orgasm (Discovery.com). A 44 billion dollar industry supported mainly by those that neglect the idea of pornography (feminist). Has sex become too mechanical? Popular press articles stating (the know how), to achieve orgasm. Possibly stripping away sexual freedom and allowing a more detached mechanical approach. Sexual education is being attacked because simply knowing the prevention/risks is just to much for parents to coupe with. (Somehow its okay for social media to teach my daughter how to "twerk" or "be silly"). Soldiers deploying since WWI always favored overseas women, (Why?) is it because majority of the sexual practices/ fantasy's we enjoy today have actually come from those with lesser restriction or with those with more restriction? "American women are to materialistic and boring, as far as European women are easier to approach without any necessary ignorant back lash,and they are more acceptable to try new things." quoted by an Enlisted member of the United States Army). Is there just not enough sex in America?

Ok to summarize, you are arguing that there is not enough sex in America (PRo) and I am arguing that there is sufficient sex.

Sex is a private matter. People should be left to arrange their own affairs in relation to sex. If US women do not care much for sex then we must respect that preference.

What about the acceptance for sexual freedom. How is America sufficient? As we can see, we are still in an economic struggle, Teens are still unaware of safe sex practices and diseases. (Yet pregnancy in ages 14 & up is still on the rise, thanks to the restrictions of sex ed. and the influences of sexual behavior on national television. I am implying to the monkey, see-monkey, do effect; but if we knew what we are watching and could tell the difference we would be able to prevent these bad choices. I believe that's why we go to school, to learn). Most of the sexual behaviors we see such as B.D.S.M, and Swinger clubs come from overseas influences (they make $BANK$) yet we made laws that where soon made to be broken. Such laws would have been the acceptance of same-sex marriages and possibly legal prostitution. Still a continuing struggle for "equality" when other countries are way beyond the curve. Supplying a demand that never goes out of style. None the less, those facilities or burlesque houses/ brothels are a lot cleaner then what we have on the streets of America, and that is their LAW, the prevention, and spread of any STD's. Sigmund Freud once made an observation taking note that suppressed sexual desires could cause some mental disturbances. Do are harsh/desirable fantasies come from sexual restrictions or sexual freedom? if you wanted to end it-- do we embrace it or further restrict a natural binding? Some say Birth control gave women more sexual freedom, just as men. How would women react to that notion? How would they react knowing that it was created for their best interest because, we all know every women doesn't want to become a mother. Things could be more lenient within are country especially for those trying to find love in some weird places , and pimps wont have to go be beating hoes. I am sure the advancements in law at that time will ensure their safety. (especially if it has a tax on it, just like marijuana-- illegal at first, now the state depends on its taxes to increase city development, and tourism).

Whether or not prostitution should be legal is a separate argument, and maybe it should be. It always makes me feel uneasy, though, because of the implicit idea that there is sex which one person is not necessarily enjoying but the person who pays doesn't have to worry his head about that. He's paying so he gets what he wants. I think it's ugly to waive consideration for others during sex like that.

But first principles: there should be more sex ONLY IF it benefits all participants for there to be more sex. And if it did, you'd think it would already be happening.

I'm confused about the sex education part. Of course it's possible to educate children about contraception etc. without actually having sex in front of them.

My opponent argues that US women are repressed and that this is bad for them. I'd need to see some clear evidence for that because otherwise we have a situation where adults are making their own lifestyle choices. Sex is only for pleasure. Who are we to tell other people what they should be finding pleasure in or not?
