So I’m pitting Smartalx, and his wish that we all stop acting like sex fiends.
In this thread http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=539220 and this thread http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=537377 Smartalx makes it known that he doesn’t approve of our society’s casual attitude toward sex. Smartalx doesn’t think we should be having premarital or promiscuous sex.
Basically, this guy pisses me off, as would pretty much anyone who claimed they were actively working towards stopping me from having sex. I assume he has these opinions because of his religious beliefs, but instead of just coming out and saying it, he tries to come up with other, supposedly logical reasons we shouldn’t have sex.
He spews a lot of irrational nonsense, but my personal favorite is this one from post 79 of this thread http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=539220 in which he writes
Aside from the obvious problem with that statement, sex is not dancing, Smartalx claims he has never had sex (and I don’t doubt it). So how the hell can he know what you can find out about someone by having sex with them?
I really hope that Smartalx reads this thread, because I would like to know more about oxytocin bonding, or why having sex with someone results in me giving that person part of my soul. I had no idea i had been leaving Horcruxes all over my college campus. So Smartalx, what’s the real reason you don’t want us having sex? Jealousy? Religion? Out with it!
Finally, I’d like to say that while I disagree with what Smartalx has to say, i commend the amount of effort he put into defending (albeit poorly defended) his opinion. He’s kept an eight page debate going purely by himself. That kind of devotion is impressive, in a creepy scary sort of way.
