Hey everyone !
Does someone else than me feels that we're kinda running out of topics ?

I guess we've seen it all. How many times haven't I seen the words "use the search function" or "this has been answered many times".

Are we really running out of topics ? There's still "sexual ignorance" within our society but how come we can't come with new topics ? I have posted a few yesterday and I got very interesting replies (thanks )

Yes and no, people come here asking different questions everyday, somep people dont know that the search function is there and repeat the question on accident. It's OK thats why we are here to help people learn how to use the website.

There is alot of ignorance out there when it comes to sex which accounts for a large part of the questions asked at Scarleteen everyday (Am I Pregnant? etc)

And until people get answers to these questions which are really bugging them, no one is very interested in coming up with newer and more interesting questions.

So I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say that it has been a pleasure answering your very interesting questions.

Keep it up and we will try to match you.

Actually, there are still plenty of topics left to discuss.

However, bear in mind that we do have limits to these discussions simply because this site/forum is mainly for minors and has a majority minor readership. So, like it or not, the law in and of itself limits what we can and cannot discuss.

(And hey, if you don't like it, write a letter to your local congressman about the bounds of the AOC laws)

I know there is sex ignorance out there are there's always new teenagers and simple people who don't know about certain topics it's just that I haven't seen anything quite new in the past weeks.

Miz Scarlet, you said there's plenty of topics to discuss about, could you start a new one (legal of course) just as an example ? I'm sure you have great ideas.

(BTW, I'm not against law but what's the AOC laws ?)

The AOC laws are the Age of Consent laws.

And, if you've got ideas for topics, please feel free to start them. For example, what kinds of support groups do you think we might need here?

Or... you can revive an older thread by goign back and posting some new comments to it. That will bump it back up to the top of the board for people to read over and think about.

Umm...you'll find that I start new topics at the boards incessantly.

That's part of my job in running the site and the boards.

If we've seen it all, I can say with confidence, because I spend a lot of time on this site, that I know absolutely everything there is to know about sexuality, sexual health and safety. So, how come I keep finding questions on things I hadn't thought of before, or didn't know too much about, or had to look up before I could even answer them? I have read a lot, done a lot of research, but there's a lot I don't know, and I am honestly glad when people bring up topics like that. I want to know as much as I can -- and I don't yet, and I'd imagine other people feel the same way, so I guess until we all know everything we're not out of topics yet.
