But guess what ? They no more consider sleeping "closely reserved", never heard of dormitories ?
I know it's difficult to admit a taboo because it is ingrained and considered "normal", Diogenes was already unsettling the citizens of Athens because he was ridiculing the traditions and taboos 2500 years ago by masturbating in public. But at least he was not thrown in prison for that.
Sorry, I was not explicit enough. My point was to explain that your use of animal matting habits was a nonsense because animals themselves do not all show the behavior you're attributing them. If mating is dangerous for a species, evolution will take care of that and matting will be very short (a few seconds for a rabbit) and avoid non-reproductive behavior; conversely predators are not vulnerable during the matting (several minutes for a lion). You could certainly draw a better comparison regarding animal and human sexuality with predators or even better primates like bonobo/chimpanzes who actually are using sex as a social behavior.
You are twisting Libet's work here. Nowhere Libet says that unconscious processes in the brain are "dominant" for decision-making: They are the initiators, this is extremely different. Libet also explains that after this unconscious initiator, then the consciousness accept or veto. And that's basically where all our education and sophisticated motives are, including our sex taboos.
Has a transhumanist, I disagree with this statement but it is unrelated to our topic, if you're interested on discussing that we may start a new thread.
We know that at least a caster unit may not want it, remember Sizemore & Parson dialog about killing.
Sure, except that again, intimacy is related to a sex taboo and has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that it is a reproductive act

The larger the battering ram, the more pleasurable--a fairly juvenile way of looking at the world, perhaps, but not unprecedented. Parson is not so very much bigger than Erfworlders. I know a couple where the man is 6'2" and weighs over 300 lbs and the woman is 5' and weighs less than 120, they have a child. They look a bit like Parson and Maggie, actually--she sometimes wears a pith helmet. But seriously, unless Parson is already hung like a horse by Earth standards, there's not going to be a problem.
also my theory of parson being an erfworlder unit from MK, and earth being planted memories or a custom designed existence that could teach a warlord mathamancy, and war theory

Also, that's a little out there moose.

The problem is that Parson is not able to leave GK, so he can't get to a beach .
