Well it's probably supposed to be a family-friendly site. That, and sex with an automatic toy could be technically be called sex, but it's not very strenuous. Davidy²²[talk] 09:07, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Well, technically sex is the most family-friendly activity existing as it creates children and therefore families. But you are right, they should probably include more specific categories. In my mind there is a scoring matrix of positions, "speed", and weather you are the more active or more passive part in the position... 21:43, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

"family-friendly" applies to whether the subject material is age-appropriate (or accessible/physically safe/etc), typically, for families with young children. Most of the sorts of activities that result in having children are not "family-friendly" on that basis. I had never considered the potential irony of that before, though...

What is a five minute comic?

Can someone do an explanation for the 5 minute comic at the bottom? 21:37, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
