  • LOL... oh boy oh boy the lawyers would LOVE you all... you would keep them making money for years. What it comes down to is that there are simply things that are inappropriate in a work setting. Discussing your sex life is a BIG one.

  • Why is it taboo? It's a natural act just like sneezing and pooping.

    Just a thought.

  • well actually it isnt ok. There are MANY lawsuits because of it.


    Answer by sahlady at 8:23 PM on Aug. 18, 2010

  • Why not? Just ignore it if you don't like it...I don't see the big deal. No offense, just an opinion.

  • not everyone is offended by sex, some people like talking about it. there are many things that could get you into trouble at work, just talking about anything in general is stopping your job to do something you weren't told to do.

  • All adults have sex in common, everyone can relate to it in some way or another. It's a conversation topic anyone can chime in on. (I work with a lot of men, and end up talking about sex frequently.)

  • Maybe they're proud of their sex life and want to share it with the people at their work place.

  • I dont know but it has happened to me everywhere I have worked so far...its a very uncomfortable subject for me to hear about at work

  • i think it depends on your job and what you're talking about. i wouldn't be graphic or vulgar.... that's unprofessional. i would only discuss it with my friends, not with people who i only know as co-workers
