Sexual Taboos
    #1198943 - 01/07/03 08:27 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Every culture has its own set of sexual taboos. The universal sexual taboos, is that there are always sexual taboos. I think this is because our DNA programmed that to happen so that people could start a society and begin creating. If there were no sexual taboos, everybody would just have sex all the time, and humans would not get as much done.

By univeral taboos do you mean like incest? Father/daughter Mother/son type of stuff because in some cultures, fucking your cousin is OK.

I mean there is only one universal taboo. This is that every culture has some sort of taboo. Every culture has their own defined limits of whats right and whats wrong. And some practices by other cultures to them are seen as immoral.

You are not getting it.  I mean to say, there is no culture without any sexual taboos.  That is the universal taboo.  That universal taboo is that there is no society without taboos.  Now I am confusing myself, and I am tired.  :laugh:

It raises an interesting question. Is the basis for morality coded in DNA and then expressed through the differing socialisation processes of each culture, or is it something that arises purely through socialisation. I wonder what "social" DNA looks like?  :grin:

There should be no taboos. Just intelligent ways of dealing with these issues. Ignorant reactions are never the right thing to do.

I think most taboos come from the fact that humans are one of the few animals that can breed year round. So we put restrictions on when and what with our sexuality to keep from overcrowding the tribe.

you gotsa read
The Taboo Of Ecstasy: On The Psychopathology of Sex and Religion

Everything is better than it was the last time.  I'm good.

If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence.

I know you scared, you should ask us if we scared too.  If you was there, and we just knew you cared too.

i think sex is just a way to kill time for most people know adays....so rarely is sex a connection between people now.
so....i just don't like sex, weather it's screwing your boyfriend, or your sister....
no thank you

Its true...so true. I think there are so many reasons for sexual limitations beyond that of pure biology, though. There are religious beliefs, morals beliefs etc. Like my boyfriend and I don't have sex in public. Sometimes I would like to, but we don't because true intimacy is something you just can't have when everyone is watching. I feel like my body is something I only want to share with him. There are lots of things like that...monogamy, for example, is something that I cherish very deeply, but then there are many people who believe it is fine to have multiple partners. I think that when it comes to sex, what is Taboo and what is acceptable behavior, depends on an individual and not a culture or species.

Just ask yourself, where do individuals get those beleifs. What if you were born and sex was a normally operating thing in public. What if people that had sex in public did feel intimage, loving, compassionate e.t.c. Of course when you are imagining it, it is very different than our culture. But somewhere out there or at a different time than the present, this is considered normal for some people.

exactly what I mean when I say its not biological. Religion plays a part...like the belief that sex before marriage is immoral. But I think that along with playing a role in deciding what is sexually acceptable, I think different societies enforce that. I don't think I would want to have sex in public even if it was accepted behavior because, as I said earlier, certain parts of my body, I only want my boyfriend to see. My point is that MANY, MANY things determine what is sexually acceptable and obviously what you are raised with is something you might accept but I think, ultimitely, it depends on an individual to decide what is okay for them.
