I must disagree. Considering that sex can quite literally be a life or
death decision, I believe discussing sex in a public forum is a VERY
GOOD idea. A lot of people equate "in the home" with "secret", and
"secret" with "bad" - so keeping sex and contraception discussions
"secret" is "bad", IMHO. And keeping those discussions secret is
conducive to perpetuating inaccurate information. However, I do NOT
believe that discussing sex in THIS public forum is appropriate.
