if a sentient alien species approach us and we were allowed to travel to their planet.

Will you or will you not travel to their planet ?

Are there reasons why will you do it or not ?

What if meant that you can't travel back to Earth ? Or you can only go back after 3 or 5 years ?

What if there where requirement for you to go to their planet and you are require to fulfilled them in order to stay there ?

What if their civilization was violent or more sexual than ours,will you still go ? What if you are require to marry somebody they dictate ? What if you are require to participated in violent fights ?

Violence can range from martial sports to gladiator style fights.

Sexual can range from them being a lot more open about it and being more common in everything.

Marriage can range from adult to involving adolescent.

What if they have slavery ? Will you go ? Slavery can range from involuntary to voluntary.

They are a different culture and more powerful than us, they have a different sets of morals codes and philosophies than us. Basically even if you find a lot of things morally wrong, you will not only still be in the wrong here but also the weird individual. You can't and will never be able to change anything you disagree with.

So can you still travel and live there under any of these situations ? Regardless if you have to or not do any of this things ?

I'd want to make an informed decision, as informed about the visitors as can be gathered, so, probably not right away.

I'd like to be prepared for what awaits me in the least.

I might consider it but I would need time to think things over and make preparations.

It's okay. It's funny but not in a bad way. Sort of like how we love PeripheralVisionary and his fun posts.

This. Once I learn about the differences I would then make my decision. It's impossible for me to say I would just instantly say yes or no regardless of the differences. There is a very good chance I would go though under the right circumstances.

I'd go only if it meant that I can return after 3-5 years, like you said. I really don't want to leave my family and friends behind.
