Vilifying sex leads to shame and abuse.
With recent issues on sexual identity and problems stemming from it now ,in the past and certainly the future, why is sex such a taboo subject for society?
Perhaps it is because newspapers like the Daily Mail and other Conservative politicians have stigmatised the ‘idea’ or ‘image’ of sex to be only a reason for procreation. Many of them feel we are only here on this Earth to procreate, and class sex as a boring, missionary act to spawn a child.
Anyone not engaging in ‘traditional values’ is then vilified and classed as dirty, shameful or disgusting for unlocking their sexual identity and giving into their natural desires.
The more people attempt to block it, the more people will end up doing it and when they do they will do it in the wrong choices through lack of information or communication in an open forum.
With no one knowing how to tackle sex and teaching it minimally in schools with a conservative approach causes ripples for a one way standard which doesn’t represent reality causing others to head out into the big wide world and make choices that could be unhealthily with sexual infections, or giving away precious sex, such as virginity to anyone they see or like for two minutes as a charmer.
Preparing people for sex is key and if they vilification of people having sex from those who are not engaging and out of touch with reality was more efficiently presented, then many would have responsible sex and there would be less ‘dirty’ tags surrounding it meaning less abuse, shame and “slut-shaming” when sex happens. Sex is a precious and tender time which should, and is usually respected between two consenting parties. It should not be classed as dirty in anyway when it is a natural order. Adopting this stance would “protect the children” more from suicide, bullying and low self esteem.
