Ok, as a final thought chai2, sexual promiscuity may seem to make good sense for some people, due to their social and personal motivations, however, it won't make any good sense when STD comes into the equation.
But whose choice is it to have as many partners as they like? Yours, or theirs?
My first husband had herpes. Had it years before I met him. I never got it.
Of course that's not saying I couldn't of, but reasonable, and not difficult care was taken, and I didn't.
I've never been with someone w/ AIDS, but from what I gather, the biggest cause is needles and UNprotected sex.
I might be wrong Val, but you seem to have issues with people making their own sexual choices, and assume that they don't take normal precautions when they do.
Some do, some don't.
Seems to me most unexpected pregnancies happen amongst women who are in the group that are just starting to have sex, and aren't experienced, and don't think ahead.
Re disease, and this again is my opinion, I think a person who likes to have sex with different people, and has been doing so for some time, like years, is more apt to be practicing safe sex.
I get the vibe that not just you, but others are just waiting for someone who chooses to have a number of partners to have something bad happen to them. Like it makes your choices better.
I'm fully aware that most prostitutes do not have a good life. I know why they get into it, the problems they have, the whole deal.
However, it's like people (the general use of people) react to bad things happening to a prostitute, even things that don't have anything to do with her work with the feeling of "well, what do you expect, she (just) a prostitute."
I know that a really awful job people, usually women do, is be a chambermaid at a hotel. I've heard from people who have done it some unbelieveably nasty stories, things I can comprehend someone would do, and leave for someone else to clean up, without even a tip. BTW, some of these nasty things done by "nice" families who have stayed a few days, doing things they would probably never think of doing in their homes.
But does anyone say "well, they're all drug addicts and had people mess with their heads/bodies during their childhoods. They don't think anything good about themselves, and think of themselves as objects, or how else would they be able to do what they do for (a small amount) of money."
No, they're looked as hardworking people.
Having sex with someone would be a piece of cake compared to what they have to deal with every day.
