No Sex On Valentine’s Day!

You might be thinking that the best time to have sex is on Valentine’s Day. Romance is in the air and you are going to have that hot, hard, passionate sex you’ve been waiting so long for.

Actually, no.

City officials in Bangkok are asking that, instead of having sex, you instead visit a temple as this is a better way to celebrate your love.

Well… looks like you should bin those flowers and eat all of the chocolates yourself!

Safe sex

Valentine’s Day has spread around the world and become hugely popular. Whether you hate the day and can’t wait for it to be over, or you plan every detail to ensure it is memorable, you cannot hide the fact that it is the most romantic day of the year.

So much so that, in Thailand, they are telling people to focus on other things instead of sex.

The country has one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in Southeast Asia, and so you can understand why they are discouraging it. However, all actions they have taken to try and promote safe sex seem to have been stopped at every turn.

When the country’s health ministry suggested placing condom vending machines in schools, the decision was met with mixed reactions. As the head of the ministry’s disease control department, Sophon Mekthon explains why.

“Two out of three kids gave positive feedback, but around 90 percent of parents strongly disagreed,” she states, going on to explain that they felt the move would actually encourage young people to have more sex.

Or it could just be encouraging them to be safe about it!

Stopping sex

The problem is that if you tell someone to have sex, you are going to make it all the more tempting to do.

Look at a lot of the sex fetishes, like foot fetish or even domination. These fantasies are taboo and forbidden, which is what makes people want them more. You try denying someone it and they will just have a stronger desire for it.

That is why practises like tie and tease and denial are so popular in the world of BDSM. You withhold sex and pleasure from your partner, which makes them want it more. This, in turn, makes things all the more intense and pleasurable later on.

As a student said when interview, “I think sex can’t be prohibited. I mean, in some public places, yes, but stopping someone from doing it entirely is impossible.”

I have to agree with you there!

A different Valentine’s Day

For those who are going to take the advice of the city officials, there are still many romantic things they can do.

As one of the city authority’s officials stated, “if kids really love each other, it’s better for them to go and free birds and fish or go to the temple”.

It may sound unusual, but the act of freeing caged birds is thought to enhance your merit or good karma, as you are doing a good deed and freeing something from a controlled life.

In reality, many people will still be enjoying sex on Valentine’s Day… but do we focus too much on the act and not the person we are spending the day with?

You can let us know what you think of Valentine’s Day and sex, whether you think the day is a waste of money or you enjoy getting romantic, by going to the Escort Norway forum. You can also tell us your thoughts by leaving a comment in the box below.

Either way, I don’t think this technique of asking people to not have sex will work very well. People love fucking. Why would they stop?
