Hello sexual intellectuals! Contrary to whatever your first impressions probably were about this spot, this is not a place to post pornography, cruise for fuck buddies, or post anything that is against the rules of the Fanpop site as a whole. We don't want our spot to be deleted!

The main point of the Sex and Sexuality spot is to provide a place for open and honest conversation on the topic of sex. This includes sex education, discussions of sex-related debate topics (prostitution, contraceptives, pornography), sex tips, sex in art, and asking questions that you might be too afraid to ask people who actually know you.

This spot does NOT exist for the following reasons. Any content or comments posted that relates to ANY of the following will be reported and removed.

1) Explicit Pornography. There was a porn spot and it got taken down for a reason. Kiddies use this site, and we want to make it friendly to people of most ages. Think of it like the sex ed class you had in high school/middle school. You can ask and discuss anything in an exploratory capacity, including exploring the topic of porn, but posting links to porn sites or porn videos, or uploading pornographic imagery is strictly prohibited.

2) Sexual Suggestions. Unless you are johnminh or OhClip, from whom sexual suggestions are not only expected but encouraged, this is not a place to try and pick up dates. Anyone who gives a fanpopper unwanted attention on this spot will be considered by me and other members as a sexual predator and will be reported. You have been warned.

3) Graphic Stories/Literature. More likely than not, people will be sharing sexual experiences on this spot. This is encouraged, however when sharing your sex stories, please keep it clean and do not go into graphic detail that belongs in a romance novel. This same rule applies to erotic fiction and poetry. So long as it's contextualized and not explicit, and falls in around a PG-13 rating, then that's fine.

Now I will show you a list of things that this spot IS for. This spot was created for several reasons. Primarily because, who isn't a fan of sex? The reasons are as follow:

1) Let's Talk About Sex, Baby. Here is a place where you can get educated and openly discuss any questions, concerns, or comments about sex. In this spot, you are completely allowed to use the following words appropriately: penis, vagina, breasts, anus, sex, and any euphemisms or cuss words that correspond to those. This is because, if we truly want to claim that we are speaking openly, I feel that we should be allowed to express our views in the manner in which we are most comfortable. Some people prefer using "dick" instead of penis, while others are uncomfortable with swearing and prefer its anatomical name. This privilege does not extend to insulting people. That will be considered trolling and dealt with accordingly.

2) My Mom Thinks I Still Believe In The Stork. I know several teens are nervous about talking about sex with their family and even their friends on certain issues. This spot is meant to provide a welcoming and non-judgmental community to help you through your sexual questions and problems. From pregnancy to periods, from mammaries to masturbation, we'll love, accept and support you no matter what your question is. You can be assured of that.

3) Are contraceptives wrong? Is anal sex somehow worse (morally) than oral sex and why? Should prostitution be legal? Any and all sex-related issues/questions are welcome here. Of course, several of these topics have been exhausted over at the debate spot, but here you are free to dive deeper into the issue and get to the heart of the matter-- sex. It's all about sex. There's a lot of controversy surrounding sex and we need to talk about it openly.

4) I'll Kama Your Sutra. Looking for sex tips? Share them here. Or ask about them here. Think of us as an online Cosmo or Esquire magazine. I hope that this spot will include a decent mixture of both experienced and inexperienced people so we can learn from each other. Of course, as stated earlier, please keep this in context and do not embellish on the details. Think of it more like a manual. "First, you do this. Then you do this. And they really like this." That sort of thing. Don't use adjectives to spice it up, please. Bare bones is fine.

5) Sex is Art. Um... it is! Sex is inspiration for artistic expression, and can sometimes be artistic expression! Of course, please don't post any videos of performance artists that are TOO explicit. But performance art relating to sex, such as the Vagina Monologues, is welcome. Just put a rating on it. Also, paintings and sculptures are acceptable. Erotic photography is fine, so long as it's artistic and not overly pornographic.

And there you have it! The dos and don'ts of the Sex and Sexuality spot. Here, very little is forbidden (explicit porn) and everything in discussion format is completely accepted. Embrace your sexuality and have a ball (or two!)!
