Especially when there are so many different kinds of people on here that it could offend like if someone is religious or the minors they shouldn't be seeing all this stuff. young people are impressionable they imitate what they see.

Sex is natural. Humans are sexual beings. The vast majority of people desire sex and will have sex at some point in their life. This includes people who are under 18. There is nothing wrong with discussing sex, and I would argue that it is necessary to be open about sex and sexuality. People have questions and these questions deserve answers. Sex is not a dirty thing, nor is it something that we should be ignorant about.
I don't think that GAG is necessarily the best place to get answers, since there's going to be a lot of people here who are young, inexperienced, uneducated, etc. and their responses might not be accurate, but I still think its much better than banning people from being able to discuss sex and sexuality.
Keep in mind too, that in many places, sex education is awful or almost non-existent. There are places where people think that teaching teens about sex will encourage them to have it, and so they teach abstinence-only and often give false information. Studies show that places that have this kind of sex education have the worst rates of teen pregnancy and STD transmission---because avoiding talking about sex doesn't stop people from having it---instead, they have sex while being IGNORANT about their bodies, contraception, etc. I want young people to have a place where they can discuss sex and sexuality when their parents and schools fail them.
And the fact that some people might be offended by discussions about sex has no bearing on whether or not sex should be allowed to be discussed, in my opinion.7
