Can We Have a Conversation About Good, Positive Sex?

So I've been wondering for quite some time why there aren't any Conversations on sex in a positive way here on TED, and those that are talk of sex as a behavior that animals and plats do. Or talk about the reproductive results it brings and how to manage that.

There are some Talks on the matter of good sex but we've never had a Conversation about it.
Now I know that it can be embarrassing to talk about and that is also the reason I haven't asked this question before, but I think it's time.

So this conversation is aimed to help form guidelines about talking about positive sex in an adult way and... well I don't know... "constructive" matter.
And perhaps also for sharing a story, if you wish...

Here are some TEDxTalks about sex that you probably haven't seen:

    Jun 23 2013: Sex is an essentially mysterious power. Boys and girls pretend that everything belonging to sex life is perfectly simple and obvious and explicable, but in their heart of hearts they think very differently about it. Therefore, whoever does not view sex in the light of a profound mystery is infinitely more superficial and shallow and unenlightened than any savage who stands in awe of its power.
