    The Ape often said to be Human's closest cousin is the Bonobo pygmy Chimp. There's a number of similarities other than the biochemical ones including more erect posture, a more vertical facial structure, smaller ears and.... foreward-rotated female genitals.

    Beyond these physical features the Bonobo has another peculiarity in common with Humans: Non-reproductive sex.

    But of course the Bonobo have no cultural Taboos, their sexuality is expressed briefly but continually in many social interactions with an amazing array of similar behaviours including human-style kissing, "ass-patting", a full Kama Sutra of sexual positions, bisexuality and all rather casually.

    Remarkably the Bonobo doesn't express this behaviour in an agressive and frantic manner but rather in a casual and tender way.

    I still find it amazing how a less evolved species can be so open and confident in their sexuality...

    while an advanced species...such as ours...suffers so horrifically... :(

    Precisely.

    We seem to "overthink" everything. There's a lot of recent Psych work that's basically determined that most people base their identity on hating themselves. That's really damn sad. It's not helped at all by the fact that most of the world's dominant societies wantr you to be ashamed of EVERYTHING you do. Screw that (pun certainly intended)!

    Other than religion :) there are many reasons why people humans have developed a repressed and private sexual life. Check out a book by Paul Elrich called Human Natures, I read it last semester for grad school and it rocks.

    Basically dominant males of various species would attack both the "promiscuous" males and females if they were mating, as it reduced his chance of passing on his genes into the gene pool.. dominant males seek to ensure only they can produce offspring and there is tons more info on this.

    Also related is why women tend to menstrate together at the same time and whymales are so territorial.

    Check it out.

    Re: Precisely.

    How true that is. Our society is filled with poor souls who have no identity without projecting their true feeling on each other.

    First look at the image:

    Now read the caption:
    Above: Bonobos in the Wild,
    Swinging through the Trees &
    With Each Other.

    Liberal use of Swinging I'd say...

    I think a lot of the repression in the US stems from our Puritanical forefathers. After all, they left Europe because they felt the religions there were too "loose" and wanted stricter rules.

    I think we saw a major step forward with the sexual revolution in the 60s and are seeing another one now as homosexuality slowly becomes accepted by modern society.

    yeah sexual repression is a very frustrating thing. society enforces so many inhibitions that normal, healthy individuals come out looking like perverts. go figure :(

    i guess i was surprised that menopause is such a taboo topic in so many situations-- i alway saw it as a normal part of a woman's life that should be celebrated, but a male-dominated society has turned it into a curse to be whispered about. kind of like how the female orgasm was 'rediscovered' a hundred years ago-- i don't really mean to keep going feminist here, but you get my idea...

    every once in a while, eye goes raunchy and a piece of history is made :) the poop thread, the Which Hand thread, others too numerous to mention :)

    so, in reality, normal people aren't perverts, just eyelikeart :)

    i don't like total shave either, but people should always trim. you cut the hair on your head and face, why not??

    I think trimming is the answer to avoid hair doing that gag-thing half an hour after.

    It's a pity that many aren't "learned" about the anatomy, and that porno flicks are their only source of education.

    God bless a woman who knows what she needs...and the man who can take some lessons. ;)
