Thanks for your comment. I take a little different view. A whole lot of traditional attitudes about sex and marriage can be explained be the inability to discuss conception and STD's with the kids. Remember TV up until the 1970's? Husbands and wives were not allowed to be shown in the same bed.<quoted text>
A whole lot of traditional attitudes about sex and marriage can be explained by there being no reliable way to prevent conception or STDs.
I wonder how many teen STD's and mistake conceptions in history could have been prevented if their experiences were not encountered for the first time by blind experimentation and accident.
Look at the Netherlands and statistics. It speaks volumes about the truth.
