My Mood: No More Sex Chat Rooms

Why do people have opinions that don't even use chat?

Anyway, I'm sure this decision tees several people off that love to really indulge in this. Many unhappy faces. Yes, I've seen the talk and the severity of it. It has sometimes been hours of plain pornography. And people who wanted to talk about other things had still gone to the adult room because it is the only place with people.

I'm not going to pretend I'm sad about this decision. I don't think it looks good on a serious site to have pornography. I know I will be called a hater now and a party pooper.

But whew! This decision is quite a relief.

And I do think it also is more mentally healthy as those involved in the convos were manic or similar, and why would we want to feed into mental illness, we don't go Yay more! when someone is depressed. We want that person not to stay in the ill mood.

So thanks. Much appreciated.

1) OCD can be just the opposite, where a person is unable to enjoy sexuality.
2) Not all sexual people are ill, thus not all sex talk is pathological.
3) The pathological status of hypomania is controversial.

I'm not opposing the decision. I just hate logical fallacies.

It was, but it's in the past now...

I'm just glad that they finally decided to nix the sex talk.
It was pretty triggering and annoying that I had to leave the place that I find helpful and relaxing because triggering material was there all the time and no one said anything about it.

Kori you are right this went on too long and was overlooked. Hopefully in the future we will not turn away from a huge triggering issue and stand up for ourselves and others.
Thanks to all peace. sami
