Default Why isn't there any sex forum? :-)

Hey so I was just looking at the puberty section and saw a pretty large amount of sex questions. Most of these were of course locked and then I thought about it, it would be so much easier for the modders and all the users could get their sex and masturbation questions. I know this sounds a bit ... But if there was a section for sex and masturbation under puberty one for boys, one for girls and maybe one for both it would just make things easier and some teens could get their weird questions answered 😂🎉

That could work, but as said some of the questions are weirder, and a feature like that sounds like it could easily be abused or overdone, and answers could get weird, and, potentially not for all ages this site holds

Healthy questions are generally allowed to be unlocked, the locked sex threads will be locked usually for potential of abuse or rule breaking of the forum.

Well they are locked but some of these questions that get locked are actually something's that people during puberty seek out help for and its something they can't explain to there parents without them thinking the worst so I'm not complaining but maybe this can actually be useful because the people that want answers get other people's opinions won't need it anymore after they are answered

Well the reason why we don't have one of those forums is because it is against the rules. Having a sex section would literally have the potential to be used primarily as story telling and bragging and probably wouldn't even be used for questions. Serious questions regarding sex education are allowed in the puberty section but more often than not people go way further than a simple sex education question, so they get locked. This is not a forum for sex tips, if you have a genuine sex ed question then post the thread. The worst that can be done is it will be locked, there is definitely no need for an entire new section that will be abused just as much as the puberty section.

I have to say that it's a bit much to say that the puberty section is abused for sex tips. And if there was this sex section, the puberty section wouldn't be "abused" (there wouldn't be any questions regarding masturbation or other sex ed questions)
To set some kind of example I saw a question regarding if whether it was normal or not to stimulate one self anally during masturbation which was locked because it didn't have anything to do with puberty. In some way it doesn't have anything to do with puberty but it also has because this guy wasn't sure if it was normal or what people thought of it. But not more than a couple questions in a modder locked the thread. It's like that on a lot and I mean a lot of questions. Please think about it it would even lower the amount of work modders has to do ❤

And BTW y would it be so bad if people shared there experiences. I highly doubt anyone would brag about their sex experiences haha😂

Because VT isn't a site for erotica, nor will it ever be. Period, end of story, no exceptions.

Yes there was that question which I locked and the whole "is it normal" thing is completely unnecessary. When do we ever speak of that in real life? Who ever questions if someone does something in the privacy of their own home? Nobody cares if other people think it's normal since normal is a subjective thing anyway. Not to mention how many posts have the exact same fricking title, it gets extremely boring when every single thread is the exact same as the other. And people would brag about their damn experiences, that is very clear to see when you see people asking "Am I big?" when they clearly know how they're defined in society. This isn't a site for fanfiction, there are many others for that sort of thing.

Woaw there is no need to be mad it's not like I can actually do anything about it and who said it was porn 😓 when I said sharing experiences I meant that people could answer and get answered all the questions "not related to puberty" (which a lot of times actually are misunderstood and are regarding puberty as much as most of the other questions) I hope we can have a happy and learning hypothetical discussion about this. If u think it wouldn't be great please tell us your reasons ❤

The answer is no, as Elysium said. There is no need for a hypothetical discussion or any reasons it should be put in. Nobody is mad either, it's just never going to happen.

OK so first of all some people do care that's why they ask. As a modder I personally think you and any other modder should be neutral to those things. And for the "am I big?" Questions, first of all I didn't ever mention those and second of all you can't tell from what they write if they know they're big or not. ❤

Edit:
And if all these thread wouldn't be locked I think you could see a very big fall in the amount coming your way ❤

Edit 2:
Then please take my thoughts about the puberty threads themselves😂❤

Nobody's mad at you. This just isn't a discussion we're willing to have. VT isn't the place for that stuff and so it's never going to happen. Sharing sexual experiences, regardless of the intention, definitely veers off into the territory of erotica if it doesn't enter it entirely. I don't know what more I can tell you. If you think moderators are unjustly locking threads, that's a different discussion that you can have over PM with the moderator(s) in question or a senior staff member (a global moderator or administrator).

The threads you see locked are, in the opinion of a moderator, unrelated to puberty and sex Ed. The reason some may seem unjustly locked is because all of us not just the staff have seen time and time again those kind of similar questions go down the "not so safe for work" path. Not only that, you can usually find one of those threads, locked or unlocked, that has the answer in them. As has been mentioned, if you really think a topic should be unlocked, it's best to take that up with the specific staff member.

Having a forum related to sex wouldn't actually decrease the moderators work load, it would just move the possibly inappropriate threads from one place to another. This would effectively add to the workload, as they would now have to mod another sub forum.

This is a decent idea at first, but it's just too easily abused and risqué for a site made for teens. As for the story telling, just take a look through P101 Archive, some people are more than willing to share experiences from their personal lives.

Ok, since you're so interested in a non-moderator, 'unbiased' opinion, here's mine.

Don't worry, I've never been a moderator, I'm too rude and arrogant.

1. As a mod, it's their job to not be neutral on these things. They're here to keep the site running smoothly, and this includes enforcing rules. The rules happen to be that this is a teen environment, and not an adult environment. Sexually explicit material is inappropriate because those who own and run the site deem it to be so, and the vast majority of us who are regular and contribute to this site as members as well as staff agree with these rules.

2. The internet is filled with creeps. There are many ways this could be not only a privacy issue, but a safety issue. If someone were to "compliment" someone on their sexual story, or ask detailed questions about 'information, so they could answer their question better', it could lead to sharing of outside information (an act that is allowed on VT for non-malicious purposes) that results in sexual harassment, or worse.

There are some members of the site as young as thirteen, and it would be horrendous if something happened to them because the moderators decided they were mature enough to be adults.

Newsflash: as much as 13 year olds like to think they're mature and can handle the 'real world', this rarely is the case. When you're young, you're naive and make stupid decisions. It can mess you up, or put you in an extremely bad situation. I know from personal experience.

This is not the precise reason these rules are in place, just an outside observation, but with this in mind, I'm sure the staff have a completely valid reason for having the rules they do.

3. If you want to have explicit, adult conversations, don't go to a teen forum for them. Simple.


Just a ghost

Yes, yes it would.

You'd have perverts and paedophiles trolling the forums getting off on teens sharing their sex experiences.

Right now, this forums rule against "not puberty related" questions is doing more harm than good (potentially hurting people IRL).

http://www.virtualteen.org/forums/sh...d.php?t=226109 This one is a really good example.

User is curious about anal play (this curiousity is probably because their in puberty btw). We can assume they ask the question on this site because they suck at using search engines and/or don't trust other sites but feel safe in this forum.

The thread got one reply with bad advices and then it was locked.

You can't really blame them for asking here either..

As I mentioned before, go through some P101 Archive threads and you'll find the answer to the question in one of the threads, that's what it's there for. these kind of threads have gone wrong in the past and aren't necessary.

A sex form? You're joking. I hid the entire puberty section because a lot of it, the girls section too, made me very uncomfortable. And putting a bunch of teens together in a SEX FORM
Is not going to work.
