You have American Puritanism to thank for that. For various reasons (insert
history lesson here), American mainstream television has decided that
violence is okay, and bodily functions like farting and defecating are
somewhat okay (though comical), but anything sexual is taboo for a
"family-friendly" audience.

Star Trek, being family-friendly, has therefore tended to shy away from
talking too much about that kind of thing.
