I don't know why sex is a subject that cannot be discussed without giggles, or must be made a subject that is carefully approached.

Have you investigated her claims then?

Really? I try to be honest about my feelings regarding sex. I don't know. It just doesn't appeal to me. I'm still a virgin and probably will be for a long time, I'm likely saving sex for marriage.

Haha that's a convenient way to put something that you have no interest in off while sounding admirable in the process. Nice. I used to think that I was saving sex til marriage... then I promised myself until I was at least 18... and eh, I failed. Sometimes when I'm feeling emotional I wish that I would have waited until meeting 'the right person' because it feels weird to know that other people have been, well, with me. But I don't let myself feel bad about it (there's no reason to), and I remind myself to be logical and note it's really not a big deal. And that I learned a lot in the process and back then I was probably very happy that I was having sex with those people (lol I know I was). Some I regret though lol not gunna lie.

It's a taboo because children are told that "You'll learn when you're older". The truth is that sex and reproduction is the of the most vital actions any human can do, and to try and shield it turns it into this taboo, and means the cycle is repeated. If children are thought from an early age what X and Y does, why the floors are shaking on Mommy and Daddys anniversary night and basically everything else about the Birds and the Bees, then society will be ore relaxed towards sex.

The truth is sex is part of our nature, and it's part of our nature to want sex and the pleasure associated with it. If contraception is readily available, under-aged pregnancies and STD's are easily avoided. It's ridiculous that prostitution is still banned, and porn is still a dodgy issue.

The whole idea revolves around this idea sex is this bad, immoral thing, and is almost a sin. Truth is Muhammed had sex with 11 year olds, and Jesus 'ate' with Prostitutes. Why religions take so a hypocritical stance I don't know.

I don't think sex is really a taboo for most reasonably well adjusted adults.

Obviously parents and society in general see overtly sexual behaviour in children as inappropriate because kids aren't ready for the very serious physical and emotional implications of sex.

I guess if parents handle situations badly then people will grow up with a perception that anything sexual is naughty and bad ( or sinful in a religous context) and that is where the taboo arises.

Apparently Joseph was in his 90's and Mary was like 13. They didn't have sex obviously though.

I do not want to be known as any such person that goes off-topic all the time, but the above has been discussed, and this is not the right thread for it.

And "sex" itself is not entirely a taboo, but many people keep it for themselves, which I believe is a proper thing to do. I personally do not talk about it to my family/relatives, nor about the act to people (excluding discussions where it is necessary to be brought up), and it is something private to me overall. I also want to stay away from romance before I find the right person to me. I cannot imagine being with someone for a short time, and she leaves me for someone else. I am emotional. I want one I can feel safe with.

Every man in his own boat, I say.

They didn't? I thought Jesus had a brother...? Also, just because Joseph maybe wasn't Jesus' daddy doesn't mean that they didn't have sex once they got married. Question (for INH) -- Do Muslims believe that Jesus was immaculately conceived? Out of curiosity...

Joseph and Jesus did what?

Yes, Muslims also believe Jesus was a virgin birth.

Sex is a taboo because we really really want it, but it can lead to undesirable consequences if pursued unrestricted. It has to be a taboo.
