Sex for fun and non-procreation!

In this world, we can't get away from religion. We've been exposed to false information regarding contraception failure rates and experienced the STD scare tactics. Some of us may even have gone through abstinence-only sex education!

Here in Secular Sexuality we will discuss:

-sexual health in light of peer-reviewed science
-safe for work guides on safe(r) sex (or links)
-questions that would shock the religious

I thought Atheist Singles was just for singles, which kind of implies monogamy, but could be "Singles looking for several partners."

Now now, monogamy does sometimes exist in nature. You can tell a species that is monogamous - the males have extremely small testes and produce smaller amounts of sperm than most species do. Much smaller testes and much less sperm than humans...

Did somebody say this forum was for monogamous people only? Oh, I get it...that was a joke, right? My take on monogamy is that it's a dogmatic belief system slightly more damaging to people than Scientology.
Comment by Double Standards??? on January 6, 2010 at 9:50am
Oh, who's not monogamous people?
Comment by Little Name Atheist on January 6, 2010 at 9:36am
My understanding is that Atheist Singles is for monogamous people.

I'm going gay (I almost said straight gay) for January 2010 as a sort of experiment to balance out the masculinity that has been predominating my sex life in the past year. Wish me luck!

@ Julia:

Oops, my bad. I'm getting my books and interviews mixed up. I saw Henry Lincoln (one of the authors of "Holy Blood Holy Grail") on a History Channel documentary, acknowledging that yes, it would later come to light that his book was based partially on documents that were later proven to be forgeries.

It's the documentary that implied (as do other sources) that "Templar Revelation" by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince is the unofficial 'update,' carrying on the work started by "Holy Blood Holy Grail" but with hopefully more attention to detail.

I've read "Templar Revelation." Their theories are a bit of a stretch but then, fact is sometimes stranger than fiction. Because we don't have evidence of such a secret society ... couldn't that mean that the secret was very well kept?

Side note: The authors of "Templar Revelation" made a cameo in the "DaVinci Code" movie - when Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou were on the bus, the authors were bus passengers. It so happened I'd watched the History Channel documentary a few days before seeing the movie and recognized them.

@Julia: I'll have to look up exactly which one, but one of the primary authors of "Holy Blood, Holy Grail" agrees with you. Many years later he and another partner came out with a way updated book. Saying the new information and dead ends of old information makes the original obsolete.

@TNT666: There is still no concrete evidence for a historical Jesus and nearly everything about him in both canon and non-canon texts are plagiarized from other myths. Like the canon gospels, the Gnostic texts were written well after he was supposed to have lived and ultimately sound more like a mythological character than a historical one. But in the Gnostic 'mythology' (or the author may have believed it was oral history), Mary had a much more prominent role.

Personally, I tend to believe there was kind of/sort of a historical Jesus (or multiple Jesus'). For so many recycled stories to end up with the same root character attached to it by so many different factions, I'm willing to bet of the dozens of itinerant preachers around at that time, one or possibly a handful, made just enough of a splash in the underground to be woven into oral tradition. What often happens is that either several people of the same name get lumped together (and Yeshua was a common name), or one name strikes a chord with people and so any stories of "someone doing something cool" are assumed that the 'someone' is that one person.

Kind of like the King Arthur stories. While the Camelot stories are ultimately mythology, there are tantalizing clues that the mythology was in part inspired by one or more real persons, whose actual life and deeds are forever lost to history and buried under a great deal of wide-eyed storytelling.
