Not adult as you might get loads of trolls and stuff, but how about one for sexual matters?

I think this would be great. My ds often reads MN over my shoulder and although he's only 4, he can quite easily spell out words like "bum" and "sex" and I'd rather he didn't especially in their most recent context.

I'd go further and ask for a "without adult threads' tick box.

FrannyandZooey Sun 24-Jun-07 21:04:32

I think the problem is that this potentially implies we should keep sexual stuff in its own topic and not talk filth anywhere else on the site

wouldn't it just be full of trolls who have googled it though?
I think maybe the thread title should just include a warning re adult content, and then those who may be offended don't have to open the thread.

lol at 'sex is a part of every parent's life by definition!'

it certainly used to be...

FrannyandZooey Sun 24-Jun-07 21:05:39

and you will still get posts mentioning sex etc in other parts of the site, unless you ban such discussion

so it won't make any difference to children reading IMO

I don't know. I don't mind discussing sexual problems with someone wanting advice or having a craic about sex, but some of the threads have cut too close to the bone. However sticking them in their own topic, I'm not sure.

think its a good idea- whilst it shouldn't restrict stuff of an adult nature being mentioned elsewhere (and am sure it won't)

lol at 'too close to the bone'.

maybe posters should just think before posting. to acknowledge that children are around

JoolsToo Sun 24-Jun-07 21:07:32

well you know what they say about those who talk about it .............

MaureenMLove Sun 24-Jun-07 21:07:35

Maybe you could filter it by putting a tick in the box for No Adult, like you do for No Buying/Selling.

Rhubarb Sun 24-Jun-07 21:07:59

How about, you know how you can have active convos without chat and stuff, what about active convos without sexual stuff?

Rhubarb Sun 24-Jun-07 21:08:12

Doh! x posts!

Aitch Sun 24-Jun-07 21:09:50

i think it's a bad idea, tbh. much as i didn't enjoy the bum sex in my face for a week, that problem would have been solved by a title 'i have an adult question, don't read if you're squeamish'. the bum sex thing was just someone being a smartarse.

and banishing it to an adult section, well... we're either all grown-ups or we're not. consideration with thread titles is the thing, not more sections of MN.

but how can you be sure that someone isn't going to talk about sexual things on another thread? It is a part of life, you know. and people on here do tend to swear quite a lot, too

do you want to ban swearing and sexual discussion except for on the adult section?

FrannyandZooey Sun 24-Jun-07 21:11:13

SEA, I don't think children are usually posting or reading on website's aimed at parents

I would moderate my tone if I was posting on a children's website, but we are all adults here and I speak as I do to other adults in RL

southeastastra Sun 24-Jun-07 21:12:08

just to take consideration when thinking of titles, that's all.

f & z you didn't like the 'in the news' thread the other day, it's the same sort of thing. (is the tree still blue btw? )
