Sexlife Journal: from our correspondents - coast to coast
How often do you talk openly and honestly about your sexual history and current sex life?
For most people that is very rare.
Yet opening up in a safe environment with others who are interested in such an engaging topic can be a highly liberating and educational experience.
The folks at the educational sex shop The Art of Loving have devised a wonderful way to do that. They call it the Sex Positive Cocktail Party and their staff hosts the gatherings in-person.
This paper examines the conflicting views regarding childhood and adolescent sexual education and the moral frame works from which they developed. Explored issues include childhood exposure to such contentious topics as homosexuality, masturbation, non coital play and alternative relationship forms and what values, if any, should be stressed. It is argued that only comprehensive sex education fulfills the conditions of a functional morality that allows everyone to lead happy, meaningful and productive lives.
