This week, the less experienced party is going to the opera, to spy on their boss.  The Soprano and the Ballerina will be using a modified version of the bardic masterpiece "The Song of Extinction", which will cause the death of 6 opera-goers (not the noble cabal or the party).  What happens is that within an hour, bizarre accidents will kill the 6 unfortunates.  The deaths will be freak accidents that will happen as the opera house empties.  Which ought to raise hackles.

That's a neat concept. I could see that concept by itself being made into a movie or an episode of a weird/paranormal fiction themed TV show.

A comedy skit in which a goes to a doctor and asks for medical marijuana, claiming to have Munchausen Syndrome and/or Factitious Disorder (both of which are characterized by a compulsion to report false symptoms to doctors and/or self harm in order to retroactively justify an unjustified desire for medical treatment)

A little boy suffers a near-death experience on the operating table and journeys to the land of the dead, where he observes wonderful and fantastic things, including a peaceful race of superintelligent asexual mules, an all-female race of proud warriors with detachable heads who impregnate each other with their feet, giant intelligent lobsters who work as feather merchants, tiny people who become extremely large when exposed to direct sunlight, forests full of trees that are sheep, talking vines, and a race of sea-faring butterflies. He comes back to life and tells his family all about his journey. In other words, a mashup of the fantastic travelogue genre (True History, Gulliver's Travels) and the heaven tourism genre (Heaven is Real!, Dante's Inferno), with the moral lessons of the latter completely omitted.

That's an great idea!

You are deliberately misinterpreting me

It certainly sounds like they are

Probably because you can't wrap your head around the idea that people who have attained their majority can still have a maturity disparity with another consenting person who has also attained majority. A forty year old can legally fuck a nineteen year old but it's generally considered skeezy.

That's also a strawman. If you'll look back to the beginning of this discussion, you'll see that I was responding to Q. G. Pennyworth saying that Meunster shouldn't be having sex with anyone

Also, y'all are trying to entrap me with strawman arguments. If you'll look back to the beginning of the thread, you'll see that I was talking about emotionally immature like an 18 year old, NOT emotionally immature like a 12 year old or a 5 year old like you people are trying to make it out to be. There's a difference to those who can see it and remember it; if you aren't so old that you just subconsciously group anyone young enough to still have their original knees into the category of "small children"

EDIT:
Ninja'd

EDIT:
But it's a relevant ninja. It is a spectrum, and people are making me out to be pointing at a different range than I am.

Shit! I accidentally deleted my last post while trying to modify it!

But yes. Without a rigid definition of "emotional maturity" and scientific testing we're both just blowing a bunch of hot air. Come to think of it, we'd also need a rigorous definition of "bad". I think there's definitely some minimum cutoff for required emotional maturity below which things do indeed get bad, but I'd wager the cutoff is lower than where you think it is, instead being in the range of violent posessiveness and actually disordered personalities.


But until I can find anything solid for or against, I will concede the argument.

You still haven't answered my question. Other than stds and unplanned pregnancies, what else is there about sex that isn't totally harmless?


ANSWER ME!

In most people, sex stimulates the release of hormones and neurotransmitters which cause a sense of attachment and bonding. Therefore, people who have the maturity and mental capacity to be responsible with who they have sex with, and with the context and circumstances surrounding that sex, have an ethical obligation to do so, to avoid doing emotional and psychological harm to their sex partners.

It's not magic. It's just the intersection of biology and human intellect.

People who don't have the maturity and mental capacity to be responsible with who they have sex with, and with the context and circumstances surrounding that sex, probably shouldn't really be having sex. Which is why those who DO, shouldn't have it with them.

I was aware of the imprinting thing, I was not aware that it was strong enough to cause the kind of issues you imply. But since it definitely is another thing that can cause problems as I asked, and since I admittedly don't have a good enough working knowledge of Kinsey and so forth to make any sort of valid argument as to what severity of problems it is most likely to cause, and since I feel I have sufficiently executed my duties as self-proclaimed promotor fidei I will concede the argument.

Then explain what I've missed, if you can

I know that "no" means "no", lack of a response means "no", and that a "yes" given under duress means "no". These are all sensible and morally necessary policies

However, there's no seasible reason on earth why a freely given "yes" should mean "no".

Is this an alternate history/timeline version, or more just that they reconsecrated the temple to Vecna after Zuggtmoy was banished? Either way it sounds neat.

The main ones seem to be unplanned pregnancy and stds. What elss is there that's significant?

WHAT I DON'T KNOW WHAT COULD THE POSSIBLE RAMIFICATIONS OF HAVING SEX WITH SOMEONE WHO ISN'T EMOTIONALLY MATURE ENOUGH TO BE HAVING SEX I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT IS PSYCHOLOGY WHAT ARE PEOPLE WHAT IS CONSENT?

Why do they need to be emotionally mature, we're talking about sex, not a relationship. Do you think they're going to go insane and start stalking their partner like in Fatal Attraction?
 
As for consent, Consent in its most literal definition just means the peraon is ok wih it and has said as much. There's also a legal definition that also mandates additional red tape, such as he age requirement I mentioned earlier (there's also a sobriety requirement in some places)

EDIT:
I understand however that this is probably not what you were thinking of. Though what you were thinking of I don't know. I believe that you don't know either, and want me to accept that it just is because that is what society has told us rather than pursuing it furher.

EDIT:
I believe that you have bought into the line thatnsex is somehow special or sacred or indeed anything more than a basic biological function performed even by lowly worms and rats (who I might add, don't seem to be any worse off in that regard despite their lack of civilization and greatly sub-human capacity for decision making)

I suppose there's also the possibility that people will call you a "slut" but that's an insult that seems to be gradually going out of fashion.
