Why the blatant sexual threads?Page 1 of 1    
I was really happy to find a free dating site such as this with so many members, but was put off by the "sexual forum" here. I find it really "brings down" this website and degrades it.

I have a lot of women friends and, I know, most womenagree that the biggest turnoff is to hear blatant sexual talk from males that are complete strangers. Don't the men here realize that about 75-80% of the women who read their threads will probably never respond to them?

I just don't think that Plentyoffish has to have these threads on their website. It isn't necessary, and again, brings the quality of the site down.

I pick and choose the forum sites I visit.
You are not obligated to read all the forums.
The POF forums for the most part (unless the moderators decide otherwise) is a free speech friendly zone.
Simple solution to me is not to read them if you find them offensive.

Ditto to red's entire post.

The topic of sex and sexuality is an important one to many adult singles, whether it is to you or not.

Although I don't much care for this Category, its nevertheless something people want to discuss, and it also, in view of what may be a bit on the degrading Side, it also serves as an Information Archive that is quite useful to the Many.

Who held a gun to your head and forced you to read it?

OP

""""I have a lot of women friends and, I know, most womenagree that the biggest turnoff is to hear blatant sexual talk from males that are complete strangers. Don't the men here realize that about 75-80% of the women who read their threads will probably never respond to them? """"

Thus OP this is a perfect way of weeding them out!!

If I have posted something that offends a perspective mate, then I guess it wasnt ment to be!
