Page MoveEdit

This article was recently renamed and moved to this new article by User:CaptainEek without a discussion or reason provided. Before moving back to the original title, I want to discuss this here. Please provide a justification for this undiscussed move User:CaptainEek. --- FULBERT (talk) 18:20, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

FULBERT, Howdy hello! It was as part of a series of moves that was cleaning up Category:Sexual acts, which had inconsistent disambiguators. The issue was first raised at WP:DISCORD, noting that there were a variety of disambiguators, including "Sex act" "Sexual act" "sex" "Sexual practice", and that there didn't seem to be any consistency/ rime or reason. Thus choosing a single consistent disambiguator seemed to better serve the goal of disambiguators. If folks feel that this was a bad move, feel free to propose some alternative solutions. Perhaps a broader RfC is needed to determine the best disambiguator. CaptainEek Edits Ho Cap'n! 18:31, 15 February 2020 (UTC)
I don't see an issue with CaptainEek having moved this and the other sexual act articles from "sex" or "sex act" to "sexual act" with regard to their parenthetical disambiguations. But similar to the Public sex article, this article should simply be titled "Bareback sex" since there is no other Wikipedia article tilted "Bareback sex." Bareback sex already redirects here. And it is the common name for this topic.
Please don't ping me if replying to me or commenting on something I stated. This article is on my watchlist. Flyer22 Frozen (talk) 00:14, 16 February 2020 (UTC)
After stating the above and looking at search results, I meant to state that "barebacking" seems to be the actual common name. Well, both "bareback sex" and "barebacking" are common names, but "barebacking" seems to be used more. It also redirects here. So the article could also be changed to that title.
