    Pornography is the graphic depiction of the brothel. And in the brothel women are paid to do what wives and girlfriends don't want to do.

    Pornography is trying to milk people for money like they are dumb cows.

    There are automated robots now which comb through search results related to pornography and sites will invent fake pages on the spot advertising content that they do not even have just to trick people into going there.

    Edit: and there are literally millions of these completely saturating the market beyond all reason and sanity. It worse than the tulip market crash of 1637. Entirely absurd.

    First, very brave starting a thread geared toward sex and religion.. As soon as I read the OP I thought, "Oh dear, this poor girl is going to have a swarm of Christian-haters whining about the validity of religion."

    Pagans, I might add, are very different in terms of this subject.. it is one of the few subjects where I see a major difference, albeit much of it is cultural and not exactly straight-from-the-bible.

    Christians, I have always been under the impression, are very prudish about sex. It is a private, careful, methodical thing, procreation is highly emphasized, and open celebration of it is not generally the consensus. There isn't anything in the Bible that shames a person from openly admitting to enjoying sex with their spouse that I have found, nor anything saying that partners should be shamed for wanting sex with each other before marriage (so long as they don't partake). What is shameful for Christians seems to be the baser instinct of wanting sex period. Masturbation, other positions and techniques, BDSM, etc. are subjects that tend to have the darker aspects to them, and adultery is one of the big 10. How your baser instinct meshes with glorifying God is something that tends to, more often than not, lead to an answer that involves retarding the instinct entirely to be on the safe side. You can have sex, and enjoy it too, but only within certain parameters.. People, though, are known for not being very good at sticking to parameters, and thus the whole subject becomes a dark mess that Christians just don't really want to touch with a 10 foot pole, causing a lot of sexual repression and tension in teenagers and adults alike.


    In comparison, Paganism is the laissez-faire religion on sex. We tend to put more parameters on ourselves than the religion really calls for (which is pretty much none). We have an entire holiday celebrating fertility and sexuality. It is common to be very open and honest about sexual desires, activities, and sexual awareness is encouraged. It isn't that we support adultery or pedophilia or anything like that, but the Harm None rule tends to be a good rule of thumb for this entire aspect, and is in fact the only concrete one I seem to be able to find within the religion. It's vague, but can be molded well to each participant's situations. Society generally dictates that all sex with minors, animals, and outside of marriages are deemed harmful, so it is an easy logical leap that these are not acceptable. Outside of that, consenting adults are free to love each other in the ways their bodies tell them how.

    I'm asking anyone what the thread is about because it doesn't make sense to me. Maybe it's just a joke or something.

    I am denying myself the urge to wiki this. I don't know. Morals are more personal spiritual/religious beliefs and ethics is applying morals in a societal context? Is this a quiz? How did I do?

    Moderation is not the moral way, it's the necessary way because nobody is capable of doing otherwise.

    In other words, I was not justifying excess but rather saying that you are going to err, and that you should not be oblivious to it but rather err in the more wholesome direction if at all possible.

    I'm not really being defensive either, I just have a thing with being misunderstood.

    Edit: this also goes along with the concept that sin is sin and everyone is dead straight guaranteed to have messed up somewhere, somehow.

    Somebody might be pristine in the relationships department but messing up somewhere else and it pretty much equates to the same thing.
    No one is righteous except God. Though hopefully we strive to be as righteous as possible. We are all human. I don't think it's fair that Christians receive so much flak for trying to be good and falling short of that. At least they/we are trying. (not taking this out on you, just sayin').

    Moderation is NOT always good. And in the cases of sin....or meth, never is best. Of course we all will err.

    Well, I can have intense communication with someone at a distance, but I REALLY crave one-on-one interaction, probably due to my sx dom. I don't know that it has as much to do with N/S as that.

    I would do anything and my ex still enjoyed amateur porn.

    Christians are also usually Republican. That doesn't really tell us anything but encourages us to stereotype. Right?

    Well, then paganism is likely enjoying its heyday since we are basically like Babylon. I don't see that this way of life brings happiness, but despair and heartache; it cannot be maintained by the majority of people, finally scarring many, if not most. And it can elicit idolatrous behavior, where sex becomes the drive behind everything, the point to all someone does. But what they really want is a deeper connection, they just don't know how to go about it because media and our lustful ways are always leading us astray. Most are searching for love and find that casual sex falls so short of that as to eat away at their soul over time.

    I just realized that this is the same social conditioning that we endured in the 50's regarding gender roles, and which led to the feminist movement of the 70's. In the 70's and 80's we had 'sexual liberation' and now I think we're fractured into two main groups; those that see the Babylon we created, and its repercussions; and those that are victims of that but don't realize it, and who just want more.

    Is that a valid thought or way off the mark of anything reasonable-sounding.

    Usually these "Ask X any question" thread are jokes, so I wouldn't be too surprised if this is no exception.
