lemur Posted January 30, 2011 Share Posted January 30, 2011 (edited) Considering that so many people are concerned about various forms of religious-rooted oppression occurring in secular life through government, I have begun to wonder why there is not universal liberation among secular people. For example, secular people often criticize sexual prudishness and attribute religious restrictions on sexuality to pre-modern and/or irrational superstitions - but what would then account for relative sexual inhibitions among secular people who seemingly hold no form of religiosity or other anti-sexual superstitions? Why don't such people have casual sex with anyone they come in contact with, for example, if they're reasonably sure they can prevent disease, violence, etc.? Why don't they unabashedly discuss their sexual behavior and desires without inhibition or shame? In short, why would sexual inhibition continue once religious taboos are no longer observed? Is there something about sexual repression that goes beyond religion? Edited January 30, 2011 by lemur Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
