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

Gay Marriage vs. Traditional Power, Authority
An interesting article about why Christians fear gay marriage.

CarnalNation.com

CARNALNATION provides comprehensive coverage of entertainment for grown-ups. We at CARNALNATION embrace and honor human sexuality, and we promise to be current, consistent, and uncensored. We compile event listings; we publish original and incisive content; and we provide insightful commentary on a range of related topics from health to fashion to the latest toys. We know you take your fun as seriously as we do, so we invite you, our readers, to use CARNALNATION to realize and explore your interests, desires, and curiosities.

CARNALNATION was developed out of a compelling need to counteract those oppressive forces, whether internal or external, that stifle sexual growth, awareness, and fulfillment. We believe that sex is a vital human need and that sexuality is an important component of who we are as individuals, how we relate to each other, and who we want to become. In our view, fear and disdain of all things sexual have led to a society that too often vacillates between impulsive titillation and compulsive repression. Such extremes can only have a negative impact on our physical, psychological, and social well being. Therefore, we strive to inform and entertain without being pornographic or offensive. We make this commitment at all levels of sexuality: the personal, the political, and the perverted.

I agree with meabh, in that there needs to be a conversation between the two parties. If accommodation cannot be reached than the next step is analyzing the marriage.
I can not imagine keeping my wife from sexual enjoyment if I for some bizzar twist of fate stopped enjoying it. Of course I want her to enjoy it any way she wishes now, but that's just me.

Hmmm... maybe Realizer's question would be better posted as a discussion in the Secular Sexuality Discussion Forum, as I can see this going on for a bit.
Comment by Angie Jackson on July 2, 2009 at 10:27am
@Realizer - Well it's certainly disrespectful and has the potential to be tremendously hurtful also. Do the feelings of the wife matter to this fellow?
Comment by Little Name Atheist on July 2, 2009 at 1:57am
Realizer: Is it permissible to look around and try to find a lady about the same age in the same situation? Is it sinful, is it illegal, is it immoral, actually is it socially acceptable?

How does his wife feel? If they made a monogamous commitment to each other, then he should probably discuss this with her before going outside the marriage for sex. If she disagrees, then he may have to reconsider his desire for another human being to have sex with, or his marriage. If she agrees, I don't see any issue with it, as long as he is upfront about his situation with any future lovers.

I really don't like viewing the last 3000 or so years of human history. This age is a competition of ideals that really began in the Middle East long before Egypt was a global power and extends all the way up unto this day. For this time, the name of the game is centralized control, which is what you see across almost all areas of our society, including sexuality. I think that prior to the rise of civilization, humankind would have been much more innocent and open minded about sexual experiences. I doubt severely that many humans would lock themselves into a monogamy or hetero/homosexuality. To look at our closest relatives, it is highly suggestive that the female orgasm mechanism is based upon a model of multiple simultaneous/successive partners and the shape of the male glans is designed to act as a scoop, reducing the likelihood of competitors sperm making it to a fertile ova. Honestly, I think that it is very likely that humans were much like chimps/bonobos, pretty much anything went, so long as no one complained.
Comment by Realizer on July 1, 2009 at 10:16pm
A hypothetical situation...Suppose we have a male in his mid 60s stuck by econonomic necessity to stay married to a wife who HATES sex. Is it permissible to look around and try to find a lady about the same age in the same situation? Is it sinful, is it illegal, is it immoral, actually is it socially acceptable?
My theory about Adultery is it was made sinful so the prophet and his minnions could keep the hoards away from their harems. I would be willing to bet that homosexuality was not so prevelant by choice, but rather by necessity, ie all the nubile ladies were locked up in harems.
So if this person is not destined to eternity in hell, then the only visible risk is getting beat up or shot, is this acceptable behavior? (not the getting beat up or shot,but looking around)
Comment by Gecko, Seth...brother of Richie! on July 1, 2009 at 9:33pm
Despite the fact that most brothels were staffed with slaves both male and female , has nothing to do with the fact that Romans and Greeks both engaged in such behavior. And found it acceptable.
Govt. regulated prostitution would work just fine as it does in Amsterdam.
Comment by A Former Member on July 1, 2009 at 8:01pm
@ Habman, I have moved our conversation here, because it has veered away from the topic of this group. Also, let's both try to work on our brevity, or else I won't be able to keep this up!
