I'm finding it hard to go through these very long threads and respond to every single comment, thought, and suggestion, especially those that delve into other side issues. So I'll give a brief, general response that I hope will cover most of what has been brought up.
This suggestion has been presented several times in the past so it's not something new nor is it something that has not been given consideration. Peggy has said, time and again, that yes, sex is a part of our lives as women and not any less important than our mothering. Though we try to make room for some discussion of this nature, as sex surely does weave in and out of parenting issues, discussions of sex in the aspect that is being asked for here (as I am perceiving the intentions in this thread and the desire behind a private forum) is not something that we wish to host, publically or privately.
While "family friendly" concerns are a part of that it is not the core issue. Peggy makes the general decisions as to what is appropriate on the boards, regardless of the family friendly guidelines posed by internet organizations and committees, and explicit sex talk is not something she feels we should undertake the hosting of.
As she has stated previously, there are many other ways to have such discussions amongst yourselves privately with those you trust and feel comfortable with, and we encourage you to do so and will even support your efforts. A private forum of your own with your own moderation and administration will surely fulfill your needs much better and we have no problem with someone setting something like that up and inviting members to join for their own needs in this regard.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings. Though it may feel at times like we don't want your input or don't take your feelings and expressed needs and desires into consideration I assure you that is not the case at all. But Peggy does have to define and decide on many things regarding scope and purpose as well as the use of the limited resources we have available. Somethings present more concerns and complications for us than others and require more effort and resources than we are able to expend.
I'm closing this thread now. I have directed Peggy to the issues here and if she has anything to add to what I have said or has any change of feeling about offering such a forum I will post to update you all.
