Discussion Thread: Let's Talk About Sex, Part One

The last two days, we've done Questions of the Day about masturbation, and, in both threads, there were "Is this normal?"/"I didn't realize lots of people did that!" discussions.

Sex is one of those subjects about which it's tough to get good information as a kid, and, then, seemingly overnight, one may start feeling "too old" to not know the answers to lingering questions, presuming to ask them at this age will elicit laughter and mockery, that the people asked will think you're a rube, or don't know your own body, or are (horrors!) bad in bed, or some other conclusion that makes you wish you'd just kept your mouth shut.

So, this is a thread for all those questions, free of judgment.

"Is X normal?"

"Have other people experienced Y?"

"Is it weird that I like Z?"

This thread is about the physical aspects of sex. The thread about sex-related communications is here.
