To be clear
I don't mean to say *all* of the posters are like that. If you know me at all you know I think open and free discussion of all topics, including sexual ones, is a good thing. And I think it is great that people are asking questions and trying to educate themselves - about sex or anything else. I applaud self-improvement and self-education. It is a good trait.

It is just some of the people are barreling down the highway doing a buck twenty five and just thought to ask someone how you steer the car. Getting a little ahead of themselves. Not all, just some. But it is still kind of scary.

I shouldn't be surprised, I've had lovers who were in their 30s and had never learned much about their own physiology. In our culture it is something you just don't talk about - well, not in polite company, fortunately I don't hang in 'polite company'. :-) And sex ed is increasingly a joke thanks to the folks who think that if you never mention s-e-x around a child they'll never figure out it exists, let alone actually *have* it. And if you know your underage child is having sex but can't seem to stop them, so you do the next best thing and try to keep them safe by supplying condoms, etc, you can end up convicted of abuse, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, etc. I am *far* from being a prude, but sometimes I just want to shout "Look! Sex isn't the end all and be all of life, it can wait! Don't fuck up your lives for an orgasm. If you want to get off that bad, we're a tool using species!"

Oh, and I have writers block and I'm trying to write a doc for work - which is why I keep posting, I'm getting too frustrated and need to take breaks.

I am: distracted

'Tool using species' - ok, that's a phrase that's going to pop up in my head for a couple of weeks.

Isn't it a great phrase? I picked it up many years ago and it has been a favorite of mine ever since.
