← Just Say Yes…To Sexist Stereotyping?

This is a really interesting area in terms of western morality and something that as the father to two daughters fascinates me.

Where does the hostility against sex come from, it is purely religious prejudice, I hate it.

The WORST thing you can ever tell your kids is that sex and love are two halves of the same thing, utter rubbish. Sex is fun. It is the most fun 2 (or more) humans can have together. When the time comes I plan to educate my girls in how to stay safe and then hope they go out and enjoy one of the most rewarding things that life has to offer, lots of varied sex. The last thing I want them to do is think they have to be in love first, that is a recipe for pregnancy and early marriage to the wrong person.

I am offended on a daily basis by the levels of violence on TV, in kids shows (my youngest is 4) there is plenty of violence, I hope my daughters go through life experiencing zero violence, whereas I hope that they have wonderful fulfilling sex lives, why is sex so much more censored on tv?

It is way past time that we all grew up and accepted that sex is not dirty or shameful in anyway.

Please everyone go have sex right now, it really is ok you know!
