    I'm just going to hide them from my fb feed. I don't want to delete because they are nice people, I just don't need to know about their sex lives and their anatomy. I feel sorry for the partners' dad, having to read that stuff about his daughter.
    It's just not necessary??

    Is there a nice way I could bring it up?

    I think maybe just stick with hiding them from your feed? It might be hard to mention it without sounding lecturing/bishy. Sooner or later someone is going to say enough is enough!

    I have no one like that on my fb, and would just delete them if I did - nice person or not.

    I recently discovered that you don't have to "unfriend" someone to get away from their ridiculous posts - you can instead "unsubscribe" from their status updates. (Click on the arrow in the right hand corner of one of their updates in the news feed and you should see a menu with this as an option).

    I got phone call from dh because people were ringing him about being away when I needed him. IT's his JOB, he had no choice. Even my pastor got nasty calls for not looking after me enough...

    OMG what would happen if I ever mention S#X......
    Wow...you're so lucky to have so many people who care about you!!

    I've only had one friend do this. I deleted. It felt kinda icky - like their fb friends were collectively part of their foreplay. Taking group s.ex to a new level. Ew.

    I always associated people who felt the need to talk like that, with nothing more than amoebas, one cell wonders with nothing else going on inside their thick heads.
    On reflection though, that's being really unfair to amoebas.

    Definitely all for attention. DH and I share a FB account and we never say anything about our private life. There are those who see FB as a way to get noticed. If I had a "friend" on there making updates about their sore vijayjay or the awesome sex they just had, I'd be telling them they're gross and to grow up if we were close enough or deleting them. Ewwww .. seriously who writes that crap?

    I have friends like that, actually my best friend and his fiancé, it's way too much, especially when his teenage daughters read it. But after enough bagging out from not only me they've toned it down a lot! I guess it depends how close you are as to how you handle it.

    I do over share a lot of what is going on in my life lately, but never about my sex life, but I also have super high security and only my best friends who I talk to each week can see it and I basically treat it as a group message to all updating what side effects I'm having and how I'm feeling etc. Some people have pulled me up on it but web I remind them only about 10 people can see those posts they are fine with it.

    Perhaps your in one of those groups and are just super lucky haha.

    Yuk. I'm glad i don't have anyone like that on my fb - i would probably gasp in prudish horror and immediately delete.

    Like others have said i think some people are just attention seekers and like to shock others.
