This is a comment by Danny on the post “Can’t Get Laid“.
“I think a great start would be to stop treating female virginity like its a treasure that must be guarded until marriage and male virginity like is a curse that must be dispelled as soon as possible (and when you think it about in terms of heterosexual sex these two almost contradict each other).
“But in order for that to change it would call for changing the way sex is regarded at some pretty fundamental ways. Look at the stories that pop up over parents being mad because of what a sex teacher said in class. Look at how people reach for religious texts to back up their beliefs on sex. Those are base level things that have to be changed (or at least no longer be allowed to have a controlling influence on the conversation).
“I think that making the world a more sex friendly place would help a lot. In terms of heterosexual sex it would free up women to pursue the sex they want and it would free up men to not be expected, nigh demanded, to pursue sex. (I think you might see a change where the number of women pursuing sex increases and the number of men perusing sex decreases, in terms of heterosexuality at least, closer to even numbers maybe?). And of course in a more sex friendly world people would be free to pursue whatever sex they are into without being beat over the head with presumptions and demands of heterosexuality and male/female gender identity.”
