Limiting the View of Sex and Intimacy to Minor Users

We thought about this the first time the topic came up (and went to private beta). This isn't the first time we've examined the idea of a site primarily focused on sex, intimacy and sexuality. While ...

Limiting the View of Sex and Intimacy to Minor Users

Both answers so far tackle the practical matter of things, I'll give my two cents why it shouldn't be limited: Underage people do practice sex. Even if they don't, there's nothing wrong with learning ...

I'll be honest - I'm 15. Can I be here?

Yes. The site is for education. If you can act in a mature manner around the topic of sexuality and have a learning attitude, I think you're good. Tangentially related: If you're worried about being ...

On 'Sex and Intimacy' should spoiler tags be used to hide sketches/diagrams/images?

Personally, I would find a site that hides content behind a curtain like that an embarrassment. It's not going to happen if I have anything to say about it. Will this site be safe for work?

Limiting the View of Sex and Intimacy to Minor Users

It's a site on the Internet, if minors want to find something, they'll find it. Besides they could do much much worse than a textual Q&A site with voting.

I'll be honest - I'm 15. Can I be here?

I don't know where you are coming from. But where I live (Austria in European Union) you are taught about sexuality in school, starting at the age of 6. The topic is chosen according to the age of the ...

Now that this proposal has reach commitment, I'm worried it's going to go the same way as the Beer Beta.

The beer, coffee, wine, tea, cocktails, and other liquid-drinkers' site? Personally, I doubt very much that we would be able to find a passionate and engaged community to rally around a subject ...

How will we discourage people asking for, or giving, legal advice in Law?

I think a strong policy against questions seeking legal advice, or answers giving it, is important. I don't think the two policies you suggest necessarily achieve that. For example: I was served ...

Where "What if..." doesn't work as a site

This site has been in the top five sites by progress and in the hot sites for months now. It is really not reasonable to close it now, just when it is about to go into private beta. There is a ...

Would it benefit both sites to just merge this with Health?

Thank you for raising this question. I think it's an important question to consider, for any new Stack Exchange site, and in particular where there's overlap as you describe. That said, I think it ...

Rename to "Social Skills"?

I can only speak for myself, but I think "social skills" misses the mark. To me, "social skills" sounds like it's all about how people interact publicly in a social setting. But using the word "...

Should tea be included with this as well?

I think it would be beneficial to include Tea. It broadens the user base without going too far. Often, but not always, people interested in coffee are also interested in tea, but are not always the ...

Not really, we should not aim for such a thing. Anyone should be welcome to join and take part by either asking or answering, and nobody should make any assumptions. Everything should be based on the ...

Should we allow putting gender, sexual orientation, and maybe even fetishes in the profile?

The "about me" section is freeform and would be best suited to describe the vast array of sexual preferences out there than any list we could on the site itself. It'll be up to the site's community ...

Wouldn't (almost) every question here be on-topic for Seasoned Advice?

Perhaps. But this may also be one of those rare cases where (perhaps) the topicality of "coffee" on our culinary site may not be entirely self-evident. In other words, if someone were to consider ...

Yes, restricting a question to a specific country/culture/region is OK. Actually, I would say it is even recommended for most questions. For instance, rules of interaction with your father will be ...
