Sexuality UnSilenced Discussion Groups
Depending on the region where you live, you will be organizing your discussion groups in different ways.
- High-Tolerance Countries – Scandinavia, North America, Australia, Western Europe. These will be the countries where you often also have great personal freedoms. You can have discussions on the full range of topics covered in our Public and Member areas.
- Middle-Level Tolerance Countries – Far East Asia, India, South America, South Africa. Suggest gender balancing to ensure fair female participation and to limit it to males who qualify to be part of the discussion. You can use material from the Member Discussion Topics area. However, those articles are raw and might have controversial content for your region. The Public Discussion Topics are more polished and easy to read as an introduction to your discussion group.
- Low Tolerance Countries – South Asian, Islamic & African. In Islamic regions and most places where there are authoritarian regimes, open conversations about sexuality are almost completely forbidden. It is still possible to use material from our Member Section in such countries but the wording and levels might be a little too risque. To avoid trouble, always host a group that is cautious for your region. You might even have to edit the articles of the Public Discussion Topics to make them more acceptable for your region. For example, you might say ‘romance’ or ‘relationship’ in your titles instead of the word ‘sex’. You know the limits of your region better than anyone else!
Any country or region that is tolerant of LGBTQ persons is a place that will also be much more tolerant and supportive of open discussions about sexuality!
For example, you could choose to have a different name for your discussion group depending on where you live! Here are some other options:
