What are some of the different ways and challenges to becoming a biological parent? Adoption and foster care need not be mentioned henceforth.

Here are some resources from Wikipedia. I noticed that some users appear to either not be open about their sexuality, or have misunderstood biological conception.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vas_deferens

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallopian_tube

These mechanisms are involved in delivering reproductive material to the uterus. Think back to sex ed class in high school. That means a woman's body. I think there was an attempted uterine transplant earlier this year, but it was rejected. So only woman can deliver a baby, not men.

Why? Are you collecting information to report back to your home planet?

He's probably one of those aliens from Independence Day. [emoji12]

Very likely if he thinks people (at least those old enough to know about sex) are confused about how humans naturally reproduce.

Very funny. No, however Captain's got it. I think this is a touchy subject for people. In fact I recall having reacted very negatively toward the "birds and the bees" chat. I think that there are some posters on this forum using biological justification and evidence which the don't fully understand. I think this thread runs parallel to some other threads, such as threads in /Abortion/, and it would help to get the mechanics out in the open. Even though this thread is mostly about sex, feel free to discuss procreative methods.

...who exactly do you think this is a touchy subject for? Who exactly do you think isn't aware of all this? Get the mechanics out in the open? Uhhh, dude, we're already aware of the mechanics.

I won't fall for your sick, sick philosophical schemes.

Humans are CLEARLY delivered by stork from the clouds.

Which means we should be studying those clouds up there and how they make such perfect babies.

OBVIOUSLY.

Well the ancient Amazons of Southern Russia used to have big orgies with the sailors who would sail from Greece and then the Amazons would get themselves pregnant in all sorts of orgiastic ways while the sailors were visiting their lands.

You could consider this early clinical artificial insemination.

The fertility clinic changes everything in modern times.

If you drop a quarter on a beanbag chair, that thing will not bounce. Same thing with less rigid bodies. From a purely physical perspective, while I hope than this is an allusion to the "two truths & a lie" game, that bean bag chair is just a prop. It's only going to absorb your momentum.

I mentioned that this is about sex and noted how it runs parallel to other threads. General comment about the thread in this regard: In which thread is healthcare a question of life or death? I'm getting tired of seeing posts about women dying in childbirth in /Abortion/. At most, childbirth should be mentioned in passing in threads of that nature, which is why for the most part I now avoid those threads. "Women have the right to adequate prenatal care because they run the risk of DEATH" at best is a statement which should occupy a discussion about healthcare. Yet this is more like holding a gun to someone's head and saying "The golden rule. /thread" than participating in an actual discussion.

I don't see many women voicing this opinion. It's less you advocating for women's rights than it is the nature of the beast. So let's try to make heads or tails of it from an objective standpoint.

I only see one women in this discussion, and she has made a contribution which is worth little more than nothing to the thread. This tells me two things about how far this discussion has come in <12 hours:

1) Women have already had discussions about every topic under the sun ad absurdum.
2) Men don't want to talk about it. Sex is personal.

To illustrate my point, imagine a world in which many men run the risk of developing erectile dysfunction at some point in their life. Does that mean that men and women should open the door when opportunity knocks? Maybe, but this does not mean that the women of this world will pay for it at any point in their life.

Not only are most of us aware of the mechanics, we have fun using them. Touchy subject lol. :)

May be us girls don't need to discuss it because we know how to do it?

I think maybe you misunderstood something. Just because there are people that mumble about being a woman in a man's body does not mean that they really believe it to the point of thinking they can become pregnant. They actually know that they only feel they should be able to, well usually, anyway.

You started a thread acting like you were the only person on the forum who knows how babies are made. So, no, you're not getting useful discussion. That's on you, buddy. Not us.You seem to have some agenda as to what you think this nonsense proves. But nobody knows what the **** you're getting at, because it doesn't make any sense. If you had a point to make, you would have made it by now. But we can see you haven't done that.

I guess you're right that there are some women who are barren and some women who may otherwise lack a healthy uterus who do not believe they will become pregnant. This thread is not meant to discriminate against people who cannot reproduce, but to show that those who do are capable of using well defined biological mechanisms. We know much about human biology. I am not a biologist, so I started this thread to share what I know from experience.

I don't see why we can't have a discussion about this as adults without crude humor or pornographic references. It seems I overestimated the candor of this sub-forum.

Thus far, I haven't really understood the purpose of your OP. Perhaps you could redefine it some more? Most of your references are a bit obscure. Sorry.

I've never understood why aliens are so hung up on our sex practices. I mean it's not like we're hung up on how giraffes do it. Well maybe some people are but they're either biologists or need to get a new hobby.
