Do you think society should be more open about sex?

Posted by: PetersSmith

Sex has generally been a taboo subject in society. People generally feel uncomfortable talking about it. Should society be more open about this topic?

Yes, in general

This could also include the legalization of prostitution: This will prevent hypocrisy, increase discussions about condoms and pills, make flirting a compliment, and also increase openness about homosexuality. Countries that embrace many of the thing... s social conservatives detest (comprehensive sex education, pro-gay legislation, nude or topless beaches, legal or decriminalized prostitution, adult entertainment) tend to be countries that have less sexual dysfunction than the United States, not more. And when one compares sexual attitudes in the United States to sexual attitudes in Western Europe, it becomes evident that there is a strong correlation between social conservatism and higher rates of teen pregnancy, abortion and sexually transmitted diseases. Society has general been more conservative when it comes to the topic of sex. If society is more open about this topic then it may become a more common place thing. When sex is removed as a taboo subject, people will be much more open about it. This could contribute to sex education as well as stopping porn and masturbation from being looked down upon. This could also allow for people to be more comfortable with the topic and will thus play an important role in relationships   more

Yes, but mainly with education

Society should be more open about sex for the greater education of children/teenagers. This will make it more okay for children to talk about sex so that they will become more comfortable with it as well as not make bad decisions. This will also all... ow them to ask questions more openly so they can have a greater understanding of the topic. This is to make them more comfortable around the opposite sex/same sex   more

No, society should not be more open with sex

Sex should remain a general taboo subject. This is to prevent children/teenagers from being exposed to the topic too much as they may get the wrong idea.

Sex should become a commonplace thing

This will include the legalization of prostitution: Make sex a very common topic. This will promote comprehensive sex education, pro-gay legislation, nude or topless beaches, legal or decriminalization of prostitution, and adult entertainment. Men a... nd women high in openness are more well-informed about sex, have wider sexual experience, stronger sex drives, and more liberal sexual attitudes. In married couples, wives' but not husbands' level of openness is related to sexual satisfaction. This might be because open wives are more willing to explore a variety of new sexual experiences, leading to greater satisfaction for both spouses   more

Society's stance on sex is fine as it is today

Some countries are more conservative than others, but we shouldn't change anything.

No, society should be more conservative about sex

LGBT rights in Iran since the 1930s have come in conflict with the penal code. Homosexuality is a crime punishable by imprisonment, corporal punishment, or in some cases of sodomy, even execution. Gay men have faced stricter enforcement actions unde... r the law than lesbians. Iran insists that it does not execute people for homosexuality, and that homosexuals who have been executed have either committed rape, murder, or drug trafficking. Any type of sexual activity outside a heterosexual marriage is forbidden. Transsexuality in Iran is legal if accompanied by a sex change operation, with Iran carrying out more sex-change operations than any other country in the world bar Thailand. These surgeries are typically partially funded by the state, with homosexual men being pressured to undergo them both by government and society. Transsexuals still report societal intolerance as in other societies around the world   more
