Morality and Sex


After reading so many blogs that skirt around the issue, or don't know how to address it, I decided to put it out there. Morality and sex. Let me hear feedback from you bloggers on these topics (or more if you like).

1. Does guilt enter your mind when you think about sex or have a sexual encounter?

2. Why are Americans not as open sexually as Europeans (not looking for a textbook answer, just your own thoughts)?

3. Is organized religion good or evil in regard to sex--or in general for that matter (my personal favorite topic)?

4. If a married couple want to remain together but the sex is gone, is it right for the deprived one(s) to look for it some place else (in a similiar vain to what Annierocks asked on her blog)?

5. Is sex harmful to people (more of an emotional question rather than physical)?

1. As long as no one gets hurt, there should be no guilt. Unfortunately, society applies much broader restrictions that are difficult to ignore.
2. I don't know.
3. Religion is used to support almost any view, but the prudes use it more than the open-minded.
4. What one partner refuses to share another should be allowed to share. The key is in not hurting anyone.
5. Sex can be harmful or beneficial. It can bring life to an end or bring life to an existence.

1. Not one bit! Although i was raised catholic and attended alll catholic schools and gone through their brainwashing, I managed to have a healthy attitude towards sex.

2. I think the media has alot to do with it in this country. All the time, they sensentionalize everything that is sexual primarily for shock value. Europeans don't have to deal with that all the time as we do.

3. EVIL. Organized religion discourages individuals to THINK for themselves. You are basically told this is what it is and accept it. Questioning beliefs is completely unacceptable. (if you enjoy these topics as do i, look at my blogs from a few motnhs ago, i wrote a few posts on various religious matters)

4. I can't decide what is right or wrong for anyone but myself, however personally, if i had a sexual issue and didn't want to have sex with my husband, I would encourage him to satisfy his needs elsewhere. If it involves any type of deception, I would think it was wrong.

5. It certainly can be. It depends on alot of variables, your attitude towards it, your partners, etc.

1. Does guilt enter your mind when you think about sex or have a sexual encounter? Nope, I wasn't raised Catholic or Jewish.

2. Why are Americans not as open sexually as Europeans (not looking for a textbook answer, just your own thoughts)? Because America was founded by religious zealots and we are not 1000 years old.

3. Is organized religion good or evil in regard to sex--or in general for that matter (my personal favorite topic)? Belief in anything is good, religion is just a set of rules that some choose to believe in, others believe in religion but don't follow the rules of it. By denying the multitudes sex, one has control - therefore it is inherently evil.

4. If a married couple want to remain together but the sex is gone, is it right for the deprived one(s) to look for it some place else (in a similar vain to what Annierocks asked on her blog) As long as both know what the other is doing. Part of that oath they took.

5. Is sex harmful to people (more of an emotional question rather than physical)? For some a big YES, for others no. As always it depends on the person.

Ah, well, Good, you've asked an (in my opinion) unaswerable question. Is it wrong? Well, first who is involved? What are his/her circumstances? The circumstances of the spouse? What would be the possible ramifications of this? Which is worse, cheating or not cheating? Whose needs come first here? Yours or your partner's?

Hmmm....the answer seems dependent on a lot of factors. And....they are different for each person. So, it's relative. What might be wrong in one case might not in another. Can you ask if it's wrong when considered in terms of societal norms? Yup. What about the individual? Only the individual can answer that.

So why did I ask a similar question on my blog? Hmmmmmmmmmm.
