WHAT WOULD YOU SAY: Is Sex A Strictly Private Act?

Conventional wisdom holds that sex between consenting adults is a purely private act of no concern to anybody except those directly involved. But is that really true?

The annual public health costs of STDs in the U.S.

Think about it a bit and a number of factors come to mind that suggest sex is anything but private in terms of its effects on everybody not directly involved. And more than a few of those factors involve all-too-real emotional, physical and societal consequences.

In the following video, the Colson Center’s Brook McIntire offers three factors that demonstrate rather vividly that, while the act of sex itself is surely intended to be private, the consequences of it are quite public and last far into the future:

  1. “The sexual behavior we ALLOW as a Society”

    The individual does not act by the ‘allowance’ – ie PERMISSION – of the Collective. The individual acts by RIGHT *regardless* of the WHIMS of the Collective.

    And the REASON for that is because the individual is *not* the PROPERTY of the Collective.

    The belief that the individual *is* someone ELSE’S property is called SLAVERY.


    1. A belief system is all fine and dandy until it comes into contact with reality, Rad4Cap. IF we didn’t have a welfare system that encouraged out-of-wedlock births, IF we didn’t have an Unconstitutional right to abortion on demand, IF we weren’t forced to spend billions of dollars on HIV-AIDS treatments and other sexual diseases, your attitude would be fine, but as you know and probably agree, forcing the ‘collective’, through taxes, to pay for the mistakes and irresponsibility of others has put an acute burden on those who do act responsibly. There are very few absolutes in life and absolutists rarely, if ever, get elected to office.


      1. Melissa – you’re argument is that IF slavery wasn’t been practiced by OTHERS, then YOU wouldn’t treat human beings as your PROPERTY. But because slavery DOES exist – in fact, BECAUSE you personally have been subjugated – that “reality” means you’re darn well not going to let anything like any ‘beliefs’ against slavery stand in the way of treating your fellow human beings as your CHATTEL. After all, who wants to be an “absolutist” when it comes to REJECTING slavery?!

        Since the blatant EVIL of such a declaration doesn’t seem readily apparent to you in regard to the violation called slavery, let’s see if a different VIOLATION of rights will make the OBSCENITY you are casually demanding more apparent:

        Your principle here is IF others did not Rape, then you would NEVER consider being a rapist yourself. But because rapists DO exist – in fact, BECAUSE you personally have been raped – that “reality” means you’re darn well not going to let any “beliefs” against rape stand in the way of YOU being a RAPIST yourself. After all, who wants to be an “absolutist” when it comes to REJECTING rape?!

        Put simply, when you declare – EXACTLY like the Left – that you are not an “absolutist”, you are EXPLICITLY declaring you have *absolutely* NO morality whatsoever. You are EXPLICITLY declaring there is NO *violation* of human beings you ABSOLUTELY *refuse* to perform – be it assault, theft, rape, slavery, murder, mass murder, genocide, COMPLETE totalitarianism etc etc ad nauseam.

        With such a declaration, you state – as an ABSOLUTE – that the individual IS your property to dispose of as YOU see fit – and only your WHIM (or the whims of others) ever prevents you from committing the most VILE of ASSAULTS against your fellow human beings.
