    regarding relationships, sex and just everything sexual with the opposite sex.

    with the number of people who cheat on their partners, record numbers of couples divorcing/separating, a lot of people confused about love/lust, a lot of people being against marriage, large numbers of teenage pregnancies and general wanting to have sex when you're young etc, it begs the question that we're in a constant battle between our biological instincts and what society expects from us.

    more so for men than women i would say. it seems that its unnatural for us to stay with the same partner for so long and its only a matter of time before someone catches our eye. its a lot more natural for us to have sex with whoever we want and be in open relationships because thats what we naturally should be doing.

    i expect most peoples ideal situations would be to have a long term partner who's always there for us, but have affairs and sex with people who catch their eyes. of course without being caught.

    who agrees?

    As appealing as it would be for the world to commit to casual sex, it the greater spread of STI's would be our decline.

    So as boring sticking to one person, it does have it's benefits and order.

    Strip clubs are still cool though.
