A FAQ (Frequently Asked/Answered Questions) sheet is intended, according to news.answers, to reduce the amount of traffic on a typical newsgroup by answering the most common questions that would be asked of someone conversant in that newsgroup's topic.
Alt.sex is not a typical newsgroup. It receives significantly more traffic than the average newsgroup, for one thing. If the statistics are to be believed, alt.sex is the singlemost widely read newsgroup of Usenet-- a significant statement when one-quarter of all machines receiving Usenet do not include alt.sex as part of their feed.
Readers of this group have more than enough to read through without having to filter out inappropriate posts. To help prevent the constant debating of these points, this document serves as a guide to the Frequently Answered Questions. If you are new to this group, please take the time to read through the FAQ, even if only to read the Table of Contents.
This does not mean these things are not subject to further debate, merely that they have been considered by the readers here. If you have something significant to add to the subject, feel free to post to alt.sex.
Not every question has a definitive answer. Everyone hasdifferent tastes, preferences, and physical attributes, so it is nearly impossible to answer many questions with certainty.
Every effort has been made to keep attributions to authors in this FAQ file as accurate as possible when available. In many cases however, the name of the original contributors has been lost through repeated transfers. I have corrected typos and other errors as I come across them but some slip through, nevertheless.
