zapatos Posted January 19, 2016 Share Posted January 19, 2016 I think sex is different than some of the other issues mentioned because of the emotional and physical vulnerability, and the exploitation potential. Explaining why Aunt Maisy is in that box you're putting in the ground has it's own problems, but they aren't the same as trying to explain watching a public blowjob to an 8-year-old. I suspect that the only reason trying to explain public blow jobs is any more difficult than explaining death is because death is not hidden and sex is. If public sex was all around us and displays of death, such as funerals and cemeteries, were not, then I imagine you would be making the exact opposite comparison. Public sex is only "wrong" because other people don't want to see it for various reasons. Either because they are relatively more prudish, or they don't wish to discuss something as complex as sex prior to a certain level of maturity in their children, or they don't like to see people making funny faces. Public sex is becoming more common though (depending on how you define 'sex' (with a nod to Bill Clinton)). What is done on a dance floor anywhere in the US would have landed you in jail not too long ago. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
