Looking for an argument for the immorality of having many sexual partners

NOT LOOKING FOR RELIGIOUS ARGUMENTS - Nobody cares about the opinions of middle-eastern shepherds who lived thousands of years ago.

I personally think it is more moral to be sexually active than to be celibate as sex is a good, enjoyable thing which should be a prevalent as possible.

It is not in line with social propriety, a lot of psychological ramifications can ensue, sexually transmitted diseases would be more rife, would be very cynical of a women with a lot of past sexual partners (trust and so forth), and I would rather not assert my screwdriver into obsolete hardware (analogy, not objectifying, same could be stated if the roles were reversed). By the way, I do not have qualms if it was in a relationship, though the number of relationships hopefully will not be in abundance. The idea that some women dispense themselves as a commodity of some sort, greatly makes me despair at society; women should value themselves before they value another.

-What does social propriety have to do with morality?

-What psychological ramification?

-Amount of sex has no impact of vaginal size past the 5/6 times

-What does having sex have to do with self-worth? why would sex reduce someone's worth?

-Why should someone but themselves first, from a moral perspective?

There have been rampant studies linking one night stands to mental related illnesses, gradually feeling withdrawn and neglected from society. I mean to an extent I can comprehend this, even though studies may infer correlations, the trends tend to be quite significant. The idea of a woman being with an excess amount of men puts me off. I would veer away from any woman, especially in the circumstances that I was deliberating a relationship. I would rather be with a woman who has self-respect, as that in itself is very attractive, and I know many men will agree. If you want to invite respect, then in the very least you must respect yourself; this applicable to both genders.

-rampant studies? that makes no sense: if you mean abundant then cite some

-correlation is not causality, it is more likely that those with "mental related issues" are more sexually adventurous than those who abide by society's rules

-Why can't someone have lots of sex and not have self-respect? How are they related?

Like I said the trends were significant. I already know that correlations are not causal, but in the very least they provide a glimpse into significant trends. Very Well I shall cite some:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/sex...-thoughts.html

"Adolescents from 80 American schools and 52 middle schools were interviewed when they were in grades seven to twelve and then again when they were aged 18 to 26.
They were asked questions about relationships, depression and thoughts of suicide. Twenty nine per cent of the subjects said they had experience of a casual sexual relationship, which was defined as "only having sex" with someone as opposed to dating.
This included 33 percent of men and 24 percent of women.
The link between casual sex and mental health was found to be the same for both men and women according to the study published in the Journal of Sex Research."

I'm just stating that I would abstain from having a relationship with some who has had loads of sexual partners, due to the reasons I have cited previously.

Some statistics on the rise of divorce rates in the UK.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...in-Europe.html

A few reasons cited "The high divorce rate, combined with the growth of cohabitation and illegitimate births, resulted in Britain recording the highest proportion of children living in one-parent families."

I'm just stating that I would abstain from having a relationship with some who has had loads of sexual partners, due to the reasons I have cited previously.
I've already covered this, the causality is likely to be running in the opposite direction. However, I also have the same disposition towards slutty girls for the same reason. I was mainly looking at people who deem it to be immoral

There's absolutely nothing wrong or immoral about being a slut or having a robust sexuality.

Because morality is pretty much based on the judgments of others, and social convention says that being a slut is wrong.

It's not immoral at all, just a less than desirable trait in a potential long term partner.

Nothing. People attach importance to sex for religious reasons

I mean looking down on people who have multiple sexual relations.

Its called society. At some point in your life you are going to be judged. Its not my business if a girl sleeps with 20 guys a week but if she starts *****ing about it, I have no sympathy
