    Steve: _ I have heard that Louisa is religious and want to know what her motivation is._

    Why would her being religious got anything to do with it? I know the American Episcopal church has just approved a liturgy for blessing same sex marriage/union (not sure what they specifically call it) irrelevant of secular law. If Louisa Wall wants a church wedding then it's not up to the secular law at all, but her own church's position and whatever liturgies they have.

    Hey all. Does anyone know where I can find the actual bill. I looked on Parliaments website and it talked about the intent of the bill but there was nothing more specific than that.

    "You cannot expect to be taken seriously with your pronouncements around young women and sexuality when you were once the very sort of person you are having a go at."

    I had boyfriends yes, but I didn't do one night stands, I was always emotionally involved in the men I slept with. I doubt people would take me _more_ seriously if I had been all pure and innocent when I was younger. Basically we're at an impasse as to how we see sexual morality for a variety of reasons and I doubt they will be overcome.

    What we can agree on is that girls (or boys, although it seems to be a female word) shouldn't ever be called sluts, no matter their sexual habits. And that teachers have to be professional. We also agree that no one is responsible for rape or sexual assault except the rapist.

    " what do you really expect?"

    No I totally expected it. I even said so earlier in the thread.

    Ahh... my first year was 1992, so I didn't know the origional context of the term. Ta for that. Thanks for explaining it properly.

    And I just wasn't making assumptions.

    "So first year women more commonly have sex with lots of members of the opposite sex than first year men?"

    Not first year women, usually in my uni social group it was older women that did the tour de first year. I'm trying to think of a guy that did it but I can't think of one. BTW "tour de first year" is specific to KAOS in the way I'm using it.

    Jackie - I was asked to say how I define promiscuity, so I did. Okay?

    Megan Wegan: I don't know if I can actually explain to you why I think promiscuity is negative. It's not like I was a virgin when I married, but I have never been keen on loveless sex. I just don't see sex as a purely recreational activity.

    I think the people here are just very different in how they view the world that even if I explained myself I still wouldn't communicate what I had to say very well. I think promiscuity hurts people, but I doubt others here share that view.

    Perhaps if I say I think sex is best in a loving, lifelong committed relationship based on trust.
