    Man is banned from having sex by High Court judge because his IQ is too low

    Personally, I always attributed sex to instinct rather than intelligence. Animals don't have an IQ over 48, yet they're still allowed to have sex. What do you think about this ruling?

    This is kind of a tricky issue for a lot of people because yes, sex is a basic human need for an adult but at the same time, the law requires that the decision to have sex be made with sound judgement. A subject who is unable to understand the full ramifications of their actions, be they an animal, a child, or in this case, someone with a mental disability, is considered much more vulnerable to manipulation and abuse in a sexual relationship than a fully cogniscent, consenting adult. For most people, the desire to enter into a sexual relationship usually comes around the same time the person is beginning to be able to be fully responsible for their own choices and their consequence, but in a case such as this, that kind of falls apart.

    I'm kind of opposed to the judge's decision in this case, as "alan" appears to be in a loving, long-term relationship with someone he lived with, but I can understand the jurisprudence behind it. I think a better idea would have been to allow the relationship to continue, but (and I'm working under the assumption that "alan" already has some manner of a caseworker) have the conditions of the relationship subject to inspection and interview to ensure "alan"'s situation is safe.

    Judgement sounds like it's punishing the person it sets out to protect.

    Seems kinda sleazy to be having sex with someone with the mental age of a child.

    A 'vigorous sex drive' combined with low IQ and learning disability...sounds like he wasn't able to control himself at all. That would get pretty uncomfortable even for a willing partner after a while, and certainly for everyone around him. Probably why it eventually came to the attention of the council and then the court.

    Sex is one of the 7 basic physiological needs. No court has the authority to make it illegal for him to have sex. They can restrict whatever environment he's exposed to to try and stop it, or make it illegal for others to have sex with him since there's a consent issue, but making it illegal for him isn't possible.

    On the bright side, he is screwing another dude and is therefore not in danger of procreating. I say let him be.

    That was my first thought too. He's not out there making a stream of mentally handicapped children, so if he wants to get his rocks off then let him be.

    Which is a shame since there are many humans who should not be procreating. Maybe this ruling will trickle down to the idiots of the world.

    :lolol : This made my day! Though, about your animal's having lower than an IQ of 50, they can have sex. I doubt animals could get a very high IQ test. You could say sex is a 'primal instinct'. It's something natural.

    I read the title as if he was too dumb to do it right or something. I was about to be all "damn dude, it's not rocket science."

    I know. That would've been a much funnier, more enjoyable thread.
