Sex, politics, and religion are three most trollable subjects. I have been told that you shouldn't talk about any of them on a first date or even a 2nd date. Why is this?

Politics and religion are because wherever someone falls on the spectrum, if you tell them you're somewhere on the opposite side, their guard immediately goes up and they will usually look to pigeonhole you into their mold of what that "kind" of person is (i.e. liberal, right-wing, too permissive, too high strung, Christian, naturalist/atheist/agnostic, etc.). Because of this, unless we both know where each other falls, I wouldn't bring it up because the first few dates are to get to know someone's personality to see who they really are, not to categorize them (you get to do that after you break up). Sex is a topic that everyone has their opinions on, but mostly if they're talking about it with a person they're attracted to, they'll want to demonstrate. And if you give a mouse a cookie...Anyway, just as you don't talk about the first two subjects on the first few dates, you don't talk about this because you want to know who that person is on the inside, and not just what turns them on in bed. I think Patti Stanger has a good point when she makes her matches to tell them "no sex before monogamy."
And the reason most people troll them, especially here, is that they have largely pigeonholed their troll-ee and just want to use their point of view as fodder for a joke.0
