no taboos please...

such a waste to have them, takes away all the fun in life I'd say? If you for example do not like to discuss sexuality free and openly, then don't. But know you're missing a lot of fun... :o

So many people in the US seem to see the sex organs of the human body as "dirty" or unmentionable. I like the come back, "If you think the product is 'dirty', please see the designer."

Oh SE, an oldie but goodie.

I don't think taboos as such are such an awful thing. There are things that fall into the 'too much information' category. My ex-sister-in-law had this problem. She never knew when to shut up. Or why you shouldn't discuss your personal battle with incontinence at the Christmas eve dinner table.

There is a time and place to discuss: politics, money, health issues, etc... and knowing when and where makes all the difference.
