Just as Kenzie said, I made a Facebook account just so I could talk to other EF members & join in on the deals & giveaway entries, same with Pinterest.
I like my privacy & I also know that some family members, for whatever reason, would not be comfortable knowing about my activities on the site. I'm answering this as a person who is from a sheltered, religious background, which DOES make a difference & I believe is who you wanted to hear from?
I have no shame about sex, but it's not their business in the first place. That said, I have no problem with them knowing I use the site, but I know they'd be uncomfortable knowing the details, so it's easier to avoid any issues in the first place.
As for my siblings, I really believe their reaction would be, "Okay, good for you...uh, so why are you telling me this?" And really, who with a similar background, would tell their parents what specific acts get them off? If you wouldn't go into detail face to face with them, why would you want them reading such personal details on the site where they might come across your posts? (I'm NOT talking about those who have a more open relationship with their family.)
It may be easy for some to say they don't care, but I do care about how family feels & I wouldn't want them upset about something they have no control over or reason to even know about. It's not because I'm uncomfortable, it's that I don't want to make them uncomfortable.
