Sexuality and the world: Why do we get so hung up on it?

Why is it always such a big deal really? You might say it's because of religion, and sure most religions have fairly strict views on what is ok and what isn't, but it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense. There are loads of religious standards that have gone right out the window, but for some reason this one has stuck around.

It's not just religion though, it always seems to be this huge hot topic, we just can't resist talking about it, I can't resist talking about it, just seems so strange to me in perspective.

Sex is a big part of our lives, so is relationships, love, feelings. They all kind of go hand in hand, and people like to talk about the things they like or find interesting.

Maybe some people are trying to understand sexuality more by talking about it? I think everyone has there own reason. I'm not one to really get hung up on the subject though.

On a side note, I was once asked in a job interview "Your not a homo are you?". The fact that someone like that could have been my manager, I just left. Things like this are so important to some people, and I think you are right about religion for the reasons you are trying to get across. People have a shrewd way of thinking, and we have to look at the values and ideals that raised us, some of the things I've heard from religous talk offended me greatly.

I don't think religion is to blame completely obviously.

This is really one of the more multi-faceted things we have in humanity. While I'd say a good chunk of it is religious (With the 'kill the gays, homo is bad, etc.' stuff from long ago), I'd say another part of it is that we try to interject what we want on others, no matter what they think or desire, that it rubs the wrong way most of the time. The normal view should be 'What you do in your private life is not my concern', but a lot of people (no matter their sexuality) are too impersonal to not care.

religion...but also our up bringing and having it "drilled" into our heads that some things are deviant/wrong regardless of religion

and double standards

It's barely a religious thing, I think the current Christian attitudes towards sex came about mainly in medieval times from Christian scholars reinterpreting the Bible, and it's stuck ever since. Christianity used to be quite permissive.

Really depends on the country. In China you'll see naked bill boards. If that occurred in America where I live there would be a riot. I think your right that it has to do with religion, but more in a morality view. Americans see nakedness and sex as something private and dirty. Not something you want popping up all over the highways.

To me sex is sex, don't share it with kids, and keep it to appropriate levels. Not everyone wants the details of your sex life.

People are petty and stupid. That would appear to be the overriding reason.

Probably because in the past before modern contraceptives were widely available, sex was far more tied up with reproduction and thus by extension family ties. Adultery almost inevitably risked a man raising a child not his own if the adulteress was never found out, and exclusive homosexuality would lead to a lack of new family members for obvious reasons.

That said, many cultures in the past had different views on sexuality than the Abrahamic religions: the Chinese saw homosexuality as immature, the Romans saw it as masculine as long as you weren't the one on the receiving end and Native Americans had "Two-Spirits", people supposedly with both a male and female spirit.

I honestly don't know. I imagine that advanced humans from the future would be completely care free about gay, bi,straight or whatever because it would be as trivial a thing as preferring blondes over brunettes.

Or maybe not, can't say.

And then you look at popular media and it's all sex sex sex. Movies with their obligatory sex scene mid-way through, sex in every single bioware game now, popular music videos backed with a hoard of women wearing strings for clothing, lyrics about making people sweat, making love on the floor etc. And there's very few TV series' nowadays that don't feature sex scenes fairly regularly for very little reason. Spartacus anyone? And then we've got the relatively new phenomena of such easy access to sex for kids. When i was growing up we were lucky to find a porno mag by the side of the railway track, nowadays every kid has access to the internet, graphic hardcore sex is just 2 or 3 clicks away.

Rationally speaking we all know sex isn't really that big a deal, it's something that generally happens privately and isn't really talked about openly beyond a few close friends, overall it's just not that big a part of our every day lives, if we're getting it great, if we're not then ah well, there's always the right hand. But now every time we turn on the TV or the computer its thrusted into our faces and we're being told that sex is everything, that we should all be constantly rutting like pornstars and if we aren't we're lonely losers.

So on the one hand we've got the "think of the children" crowd up in arms every time a side-boob pops up in a recent game release, and on the other hand we've got the "sex sells" crowd shoehorning sex into every goddamn thing in media, it's no wonder sex is such a messed up subject in today's society.

I really don't know, I mean I'm completely comfortable talking about anything involving my sexual life, doesn't bother me, I have a few friends my age like that. But other people find it extremely strange that we can talk about something "so personal" etc.

To me it's just sex, I admit I was exposed to it at a young age (I was an inquisitive child and my parents told me the truth when I asked questions) so maybe I'm just desensitized to it, or the novelty has worn off now, unlike some of my peers (16-20) but eh, it's a natural human activity, every mammal on earth does something similar, I really don't understand the whole stigma around it, it comes as naturally as breathing. No pun intended.

I agree I myself grew up in the basking glow of the internet. Still, its how its presented. A naked women on her own doesn't have to be about sex. Now throw in a few chains, blindfolds, and rubber toys then its nothing but sex. Mainstream media has done a good job removing normal nudity and normal sex from our everyday lives. AKA: not very graphic sex scenes, no nudity on basic tv, no sex advertisements till 10pm. No dare I say, intercourse? What does that leave us with? The hardcore porn sex.

Imagine a child going through their stages in life coming across that and concluding thats normal. That isn't healthy for a child to see it that way. Now its not because its wrong, its because that child can grow up with a need to be tied down or choked to feel loved in the same sexual as a kiss would be due to the exposure.

I am very curious to see what kind of addicts popup in our society in the next 10 years. During that time we should see the true effect the internet has done.

One word. Faith.

Before all the worlds major religions became big players in the worlds cultures and politics. Homosexuality was absolutely demonstrably fine.

All of the greatest cultures openly accepted it. The Chinese dynasties. Ancient Greece. Ancient Egypt. Ancient Persia. Mesopotamia. Roman empire. Most European tribes (Although there isn't much evidence of that because they didn't have a habit of writing shit down). Mongolian empire etc etc.

The only really large powers that didn't accept it were a lot of African communities and Indian communities, but that is because their religions and beliefs are set in stone a lot earlier than Christianity and Islam etc, so not much was documented prior to religions inception, or all evidence of it was destroyed via age or some other shit.

But all of this ancient homosexuality being practiced in very, very advanced cultures just goes to show that being gay is fucking natural... It's just a thing humans and most other fucking organisms on the planet for that matter do.

There is no escaping it. Homosexuality is here to stay. And thank god for that, well... Maybe not god. Awkward.

Well, sex is a huge part of everyone's lives...arguably sexuality is the single biggest motivator in human behavior. If you're old enough to think of such things (so basically, not a kid) you probably actively want or at the very least think about it on a daily basis.

Now, with something so powerful and compelling there comes a degree of stress. And since love and sex are inherently illogical, there is an unconscious need to want to intellectualize it. No one wants to admit that regardless of who they are and what they do, they are still unable to escape the clutches of the most primal human instinct. It's about control, basically.

When the faiths of the world say "Homosexuality is wrong" "Only have sex to reproduce" "Abstain until marriage" "Masturbation is sick and wrong" etc, etc, it's all about an unconscious need to take back control from our instincts.

Are we talking about sexuality, as your thread title suggests, or are you talking about homosexuality, as other in this thread suggest?

The answer is very different depending if you are speaking in code or not.

How his homosexuality NOT an aspect of sexuality? I don't think it's talking in code.

OTOH, at least with regard to the "big 3" religions, they're pretty hung up on the specifics of everything sexual, to the point where the noisy, stupid ones lose their damn minds even over things that AREN'T sexual, like plain nudity.

Sex is pretty much the most important thing around, with the whole reproduction thing and all. So yeah, its kinda a big deal, and it should be.

I didn't say it wasn't AN aspect, just that if the topic is about homosexuality then it is only one tiny element of sexuality. Sexuality is a much bigger topic.

"big 3" isn't "most religions". In addition to that, I challenge your suggestion about their hand ups if you are talking about sexuality in general. Judaism is against sex acts between two men, and some forms of what we commonly call "incest" but in general is very open sexually. For example, one ruling says "a man may do whatever he wants with his wife" and another "a man must do whatever pleases his wife" (that one is actually in the prenup agreement all Jewish men traditionally sign). A suppose it is a bit restrictive/directive towards men in that it suggests that a woman may always decline sex and a man may not decline sex when his wife desires it unless he is physically unable to perform.

You understand now why I said the question matters? The question in relation to homosexuality is different than the answer to the broader question of sexuality.

Kendarik:

Where did I say it was? The reason they're called the "Big 3" is because they're the most influential.

...Snip interesting facts about Judiasm...

Not really. Since you only addressed the smallest of the three, and only matters of private sexuality, ignoring my point. Demonization of the human form is yet another aspect of sexuality, the "naked billboard" someone else in the thread mentioned, for example.

Admittedly, I'm not as familiar with the Jewish stance on it as the other two (since they tend to not be as obnoxiously noisy), but AIUI, they're pretty reserved on that front as well. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

It has nothing to do with religion. It's the fact that sexuality influences most people lives more than anything else other than death. That's it. Of course the world is going to be hung up on it, just like we're hung up on death, it's just human nature.

SmashLovesTitanQuest:
Sex is pretty much the most important thing around, with the whole reproduction thing and all. So yeah, its kinda a big deal, and it should be.

Except that the overwhelmingly vast majority of sexual encounters aren't about reproduction, they're about fun/satisfaction/sexual relief, and when its about fun it's not important in the slightest (assuming proper precautions etc), at least no more so than playing a video game or something.

I mean, there are certain implications in the state of your sex life (lack of sex in a relationship - sign of troubles, cheating, stuff like that) which have to be considered, but the act itself is pretty meaningless in the grand scheme of things. I'd say my job and my commitments and my responsibilities to loved ones are far more important to my life than whether i get laid when i go out tommorow night.

People on both sides of the debate just put too much emphasis on sex, no mothers of America, your children won't end up like Ted Bundy if they see a vagina before their 18th birthday, and no media corportions of America, you don't need a sex scene every 8 minutes to keep a plot line interesting.

Sexuality is a big deal in the world because our bodies are hard wired to want to have sex. It's tied into the survival of our species. As someone else in this thread said, if you're into or past puberty, in other words if you're sexually mature, you're gonna think about it a lot on a daily basis. Even if it's as simple as "I'm gonna paint my nails red because it's sexier than blue."

So we're thinking about sex because our biology wants us to pass on our genetic information and keep the species going. We also think about sex in psychological ways. What sort of behavior is "normal" and what is "deviant"? According to American standards of psychology, homosexuality isn't deviant, but both frigidity/sterility and nymphomania/satyriasis are. What conditions need to be fixed, as with a little blue pill, and which ones can be left alone?

Religion comes in as a social control factor, and throws in arbitrary rules and guilt. The rules are there, with the stigma of guilt attached to breaking them, to keep us behaving in a certain way. Adultery and pre-marital sex are bad because they mess up inheritance laws. Homosexuality is bad because no children are made, and thus is messes up inheritance laws. Oh, and Catholic priest can't marry so all their assets will return to the church at their death. No joke.

I don't personally believe that modesty is the same as "demonizing the human form". I protect my art collection, it doesn't mean I think its evil or ugly. Modesty is a cultural think that differs from person to person, place to place, time to time, even without religion in the mix.

I addressed only Judaism because that's my religion, and I'm sick of seeing it lumped in on things that don't apply to the religion.

Admittedly, I'm not as familiar with the Jewish stance on it as the other two (since they tend to not be as obnoxiously noisy), but AIUI, they're pretty reserved on that front as well. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm not sure what you mean by "reserved". If you are talking a belief in "modesty", yes, that's common to observant Jews.

If you are talking homosexuality, it is generally seen as on par with violation of the sabbath (for example, lighting a match on Saturday, going for a jog on Saturday). In the orthodox community this are seen as serious failings. In the conservative and reform community there is recognition that on Saturday a lot of people drove to shule (if they showed up at all) and thus every person does good and bad, its not for us to get wound up about. My conservative shule includes leaders that are openly gay/bi.

Premarital sex...It's bad. But once again, we don't get too wound up about it. The reality is kids used to be married at puberty, they no longer are, things happen...

Any other form of sex (anal, oral, bondage, vaginal, manual stimulation, toys, etc) are all specifically permitted if it pleases the woman and doesn't replace baby-making sex. It is even argued that creative and open minded sex is REQUIRED if it pleases the woman. Yeah, I know, Jewish sex life is hard on the man ;)

The attitudes towards sexuality, women's rights in sexuality, and the pro-choice laws on abortion are some of the key things that drew me to the religion. There will always be uptight people, but in my experience, Jews overall are not really uptight about sex, after all, they have been taught having sex is a blessing/good deed.

I am talking about what you call "modesty," yes. But "modesty" is covering yourself up. "Demonizing" is condemning others for not making the same decision, and/or demanding that they do, regardless of their own choices. Basically the "your fist/my nose" demarcation.

Well, as a cynic speaking to an "inside observer," you'll understand if I take what you say with a grain of salt. ;) That said, I don't think you're lying, either, and I thank you for the enlightening information. It does come across as a remarkably well-adjusted belief system, in this regard at least, and that's not nothing.

Environmental control. People love to control their environment and set standards for what they deem as 'normal' behaviour. When something emerges that challenges their control, they see it as a threat. In the case of sexuality, hetero-normative behaviour is seen as valid while other forms of sexuality are seen as a cause of conflict. Thus, in response to losing control of their environment, some people respond with attempts to curb it through more forceful control.

In terms of religion's effect on the treatment of sexuality, I'd say that its a case of justification for belief then anything else. Dawkins touches on this in the God Delusion: religious texts don't necessary produce social and moral standards, but are instead used as a justification for pre-existing societal norms. Most Christians, for example, ignore the conditions set for slavery in the Bible or the treatment of women because it's no longer an enforced societal moral standard. Something like open homosexuality, however, is still something recent in mainstream culture that isn't fully accepted as a societal norm. Thus, they can use religion as a justification, which factors into other social concerns like a call for tradition, etc. Really society, culture and religion play off each other rather then one being a root cause of moral standards. Honestly in terms of the West the influence of the Victorian-era cultural standpoint is probably the biggest factor.

That's a fairly bold assumption to make about children. Being exposed to something doesn't change who you are, unless you want me to start claiming being exposed to video game violence causes children to be violent or teaching kids that being gay is alright will lead to more kids being gay. Besides the most well known studies on S&M were done long before the internet was even conceived.

I agree that young children shouldn't be exposed to this kind of stuff, however if it's a teenager I see no issue with it since their body and minds have already started to mature to the point of being sexually active.

as for addicts, I assume you mean people with fetishes. I don't see this as a problem either. Our society is so confused when it comes to sexuality it's stupid. The schools/parents/churches are teaching children sex is wrong and bad, while the media is showing sex as the end all be all. The idea that 'normal sex' is the only way to do it and anyone with a fetish is a sick pervert is antiquated, it stems from the idea that the only need for sex is procreation (which everyone knows isn't true)

People who have these fetishes can explore their urges through the internet where it is safe to do so . Since the internet was created rape and sexual assault has been dropping, this leads me to believe these people who would have assaulted or raped in the past now have a place where they can explore these fantasies where they aren't actually harming anyone.

Society needs to re-evaluate it's stance on sex, it should not be based on the church system's beliefs (you know the guys who decided to never have sex?). Teaching children to never have sex until your married is also particularly damaging, quite often these teens end up having sex anyway however they are far more likely to not use a condom because the vatican opposes any sex that isn't for procreation.

This becomes especially problematic in areas like Africa where there is a lot of catholic(christian?) based health programs, where they don't teach men to use condoms even to prevent the spread of HIV.

While some of those standards have gone out the window, we still are a country founded on Christian fundamentalism. That old sense of "shame" and the prudishness that comes with it is still deeply embedded into our culture. It's not quite as blatant as it was in the pre-70s era, but there's enough people around who would prefer us to go back to the 50s-era mentality towards everything that we have to keep us from moving forward further.

There's also the issue of the fear-mongering we have towards sex, especially when it comes to young teens. There is no shortage of "If you have sex, you're gonna get AIDS" (or something along those lines) rhetoric that parents and schools have in order to scare kids away from having sex because they're to steeped in that fundamentalist prudishness to have mature conversations with their kids about it.

Everyone is hung up on the religious aspect but it goes to something more primal. To control the sexuality of others is to claim a lot of power. Look at animals where the alphas of either sex are running the show. The other animals will show deference to those in charge, or might well attempt an overthrow so they can get the sex and the power. Even the celibate men running the Catholic church are still influenced by that reptilian brain.

Your right it is a bold statement, but I'm not talking about teenagers. I speak of children. I myself was exposed to things such as S&M when I was 5 and the internet just made it all the easier as I got older. A teen seeking such things out is natural. A child finding that is different.

I also agree that we scare kids with sex. Saying its wrong or even sinful. I know first hand the crap that catholic school dishes out in their version of "sex ed". The whole system needs to be fixed.

I see nothing wrong with fetishes or whatever games people play. Its their life, its their pleasure, its their way. I just generally think that as a kid you should be exposed and experience something a little "lighter" first to at the very least gain perspective. But one could say thats based on my own perspective and experiences. I could be wrong.

I think that the various taboos about sexuality originated from the days before contraception as a way of avoiding rampant unwanted pregnancies/STIs. I think I recall reading suggestions that religion was used in the ancient world as a form of law enforcement, so that would explain the rules about it in religion.

People are Dumb. In fact people are so dumb that we can't understand things that aren't like ourselves. The dumber the person the more likely they are to look at it with contempt or anger rather then trying to understand it. It's not just sexuality, It's everything. Human history is filled with stories of prejudice and hate because someone just didn't understand another human being. Even now we still do it. Rather then try to understand another person opinion or view point many will just say "Haters Gonna Hate". That is what ignorance is. Dismissal rather then trying to understand.

We are basically hardwired to show we have the biggest schlong and the way our brain deals with social acceptance during the teens is living proof.

We should have more sex and less sex at the same time.

It is a big deal, but it should lose it's "taboo" status because sex is everywhere nowadays. But at the same time we should cut it some slack. Not every game or film needs sex, we don't need to see it as a way to sell everything.
