Do LDS ever talk about sex?

Recommended Posts

I think that LDS people do talk about sex...well some of them. I grew up in a house with 4 older brothers. In terms of the physics of sex, I knew all of that before I was even baptized. What I had to learn was the morals, the sacred nature and what's appropriate vs what is not.

It's sad to hear stories of couples who are uneducated and therefore sexually unhappy. We as parents owe it to our kids to educate them early and appropriately. One of my bishops back in the day gave some stats saying that by the age of 6, nearly all children are exposed to pornography/masturbation, etc. Most parents don't have "the talk" until the teen years! IMHO there should be no "talk" but a continuing conversation. Kids should feel comfortable asking any random sexual question without their parents responding with either reproach or a "special setting." I think that every engaged couple should read appropriate material concerning the basics of sex and know what should be expected and appropriate. We live in a culture that sets expectations that are not only unrealistic, but misguided. LDS married couples should view the act of sex as a healing, sacred, special thing.

There is a lot of debate and controversy when many LDS people get together because they are not informed (even though the brethren have much if one does research).

I obviously have a lot to say about this topic because I've seen people around me be so uneducated that they are destined to have problems in their relationship.

Because I have common sense? Thanks :cool:

You know, I wasn't going to mention this, but...

Sister Vort occasionally tells of a dear friend who used a tampon for the first time and found herself in severe, almost incapacitating, pain. After a while, they figured out that she had not bothered to remove and dispose of the cardboard applicator...

Wouldn't RTFM apply here?

There's a reason for directions. :huh:

And, not to sound disgusting. But, I fully believe cardboard applicators were a man's idea. No women would want to shove a rough piece of cardboard up there.

EDIT: MOE. I think thats the first time I've had to google an acronym in years.
