Is sexual freedom good for the wellbeing of a society.

One finds cultures that permit children and adults to have sexual experiences and have very little restrictions as to what people do sexually. These cultures have thus survived successfully for centuries, and some would say they are happier than more restrictive cultures. Then there are cultures such as ours with some rules and regulations regarding sexual activity, and some would say this is necessary for social order. There are still other cultures that are very restrictive about the way they regulate sexual activity, they see sex as in many ways bad and should be avoided if possible since it creates too many social problems.
Briefly discuss advantages and disadvantages for each of the three approaches listed above. ( I was only asking for help with one advantage and one disadvantage to help me get started.)
Then, discuss your personal feelings about sexual activity and our cultureÂ's present acceptance of some restrictions on it. Do more than give your opinion. Indicate some of the important reasons why you feel as you do. If you think significantly different from the dominant trend of our culture how do you reconcile your thinking with that dominant cultural value. That's if you're tolerant & disagree with what others are doing. How does it fit into your value system?
We are finding our culture becoming more and more permissive. Do you feel this is a good or bad situation? Why?

Advantages:
? Parents don't need to monitor students
? Society doesn't need to set any standards
? No policing of behavior is needed
? No system of incarcerating or punishing offenders is required

Disadvantages:
? Young girls are frequently victims of gang rape by teenage boys
? Jealousy between suitors can lead to murder
? People still experience doubt, fear, rejection, jealousy, etc. just as in "civilized" societies.
? Increase in unwanted pregnancy and crude attempts at abortion
? If pregnant girls aren't married to the child's father, they face an ongoing cycle of being gang raped, abused and neglected and more than likely an early death.
