  • Its like talking about money, and politics its difficult for many reasons. There is an evolutionary reason behind it. About a womans loyality and integrity but also sex is a currency that we are raised by everyone to shun it and not talk about it. Because its a power. If you know how to use sex you can control everything. If a beautiful woman knows how to use her sexuality right and the right people to fuck she can become the 1st lady of the united states, or have half of jeff bezos fortune, or get child support from elon musk for her kid.

    So sex is a power that needs to be controlled and managed. If men can't find a date he would go to a brothel and have to pay for sex. Now he makes a business man rich or a guy like andrew tate. Have u seen how andrew tate lives out of selling the webcam girls to the highest bidder.

    So like any power people will try to prevent others from using it.

  • I think it's because while we are compelled to perform the act chemically, we lack the physiology and psychology understanding of sex then for some reason avoid the study of it.

    I mean the fact that there are still ongoing medical debates over female ejaculation, something females have probably always been capable of but repress, says a lot about how we have handled sex this far.

    At the root of your question, I personally think the source of the issue is partially how a society treats sex but more importantly how parents address sex education for their children. Don't get me wrong, I get it. It's a slippery slope, but we have the tendency of making our children prudes, repressed sexual deviants or just sexual deviants 😁.

  • It's not hard, gags got a whole section on it and there's sites like literotica with loads of forums full of guys asking does size matter. And trust me if you have sex with a girl all her friends will know about your performance the next day.

    But for some reason opening up a conversation on a train with a stranger with, "do you achieve orgasm through oral or penile stimulation?" Gets frowned upon.

    • @purplepoppy 😂 LOL Next time I'm on a train and if a woman is in the next seat, I'll ask her that. KIDDING of course!

    • Wait... women achieve orgasm?

    • If you ever have sex with a woman that isn't crying or asking for payment, yes they do.

    • Show All
  • It shouldn't be hard to discuss at all. It's a very natural act that shouldn't be shameful. It's as natural as anything. People who think sex is shameful or not natural have some sort of hangup about sex or insecure about how society will treat them if they talk about it.

  • Because try as we may, America can't quite shake its puritan roots. The same drivel is spewed from the pulpit of evangelical protestant churches today that was preached by the men who burned women at the stake in Salem.

    • FYI... No women were burned at Salem. They were hanged or banished from the town. Burning witches was done in some places in Europe, not the Americas. Check the true history.

  • it exposes intimacy and vulnerability parts of us that seem a little... weird. it helps to know were all kinda... normal.

  • For me, it isn't hard to talk about sex! I discuss it as openly outside of this place in exactly the same way as on here!

  • it isn't

  • Hard to talk about sex. I thought we talked about it incessantly.

    I totally missed we weren't talking about it.

  • That’s a good question. People should be talking about sex in family settings just like they talk about random everyday stuff

  • It is, one of the more embarrassing things about being human.

  • @kelly6

    I agree with her

    religions n traditions do play a great role in that

    • @laly520 thanks

    • @laly520 if you see in Ancient Rome or Greek , sex had no shame at all

  • It's not unless you are talking about strangers or coworkers. Then if have to ask why are you talking to such people about sex?

  • People come to GAG wanting to be prudes lol 😂😆

  • it isn't. you can talk about sex. it's easy. you should just probably not walk up to the local kindergarden and start talking to the children about sex. that would be a problem. but as long as you're talking to adults: no big deal.

  • What do you mean? We do it every day here.

  • I don’t really think it really that hard to about sex honestly I think it’s easier. Maybe parent a find it a little hard to talk about sex to there kids but they are mostly learning that kind of stuff in school if they have sex ed anymore.

  • It's not

  • If it isn't at least a little taboo doesn't that take some of the fun out of it?

  • @aviatortom religions and cultures created rules on not to talk about sex.

    • Religion has been in steady decline since 1960’s and cultures change.

    • @Tim2nice that’s why sex talk is steady increasing

    • Not fast enough.

  • It’s not. At least on here it’s not.

  • It is the easiest thing to talk about right now

  • People always find it difficult to talk about things that are pleasurable or things that might make us seem the same as animals.

  • Its not hard.

    Its just not that interesting.

    Maybe its just me.
