Some kind of lube was used at least, I hope? :o

Lovemaking is a subject that must be taught by the family and the family alone.

Utterly ridiculous.

I love constructive rebuttals like this one so I'll give it a shot to see how amazingly productive it can be on the long run: I find your comment 'Utterly ridiculous.' to be utterly ridiculous. :|

Here I must agree with Analonely: provided I'm not judging the content of his thought, I also think confutations should be explained, and this shall be a good case. In fact Analonely wasn't logically contradictory nor aggressive :)
Think, it's free ;-)

I see those discussions as a way to start new topics. And when you discuss about something very specific (anal only...), you tend to become more extreme as the talk goes.

Well, in fairness, science is nothing more than a study of something (anything) with a rigid methodology of repeatable, verifiable, and quantifiable variables and results. So I would agree that the “science” of sex in the West has been too focused on the mechanics, physiology, and maladies related to sex, without enough focus on the emotional implications nor the subconscious drives underpinning them. (Eastern sciences tended to tackle them more fervently...before the days of Schopenhauer and introduction of Hindu and Bhuddist philosophy.)

...However... “scientism” is at best a pejorative term for those who reject superstition in favor of rational empiricism; at worst it’s a neologism invented by people who don’t understand what science is and—more importantly—what science isn’t.

Overwhelmingly, people who deride science —for not yet knowing (or not yet satisfactorily explaining) literally every phenomenon in existence—tend to be of the faithful, spiritual, or religious bent. Ironically, their strongest criticism of science (and by extension the people who champion scientific method) is—referring to it pejoratively as an “-ism”—as though it were simply...a religion. But... ...a different faith system than their own and therefor somehow inferior to the one they adhere to.

This perceived conflict between science and religion is fundamentally a misunderstanding of science, and an unfortunate oversimplification of the rich symbolism of many spiritual traditions.

Also...I for one am very glad that I did not learn the deeper, more complicated parts of sexual knowledge from my “family and family alone” ...that would be illegal in most civilized societies, not to mention traumatizing.

YMMV.

I don't even think most people would want to learn sex from their parents, nor do I think that most parents want to explain sex to their kids. It just feels plain weird for both sides. This is probably why in modern Western society we abscond it to schools, and in traditional society its been either absconded to the clergy, tribal elders. And even then it was more couched in broad general explanations rather then extensive detailed specifics.
