Good point. I think there is definitely a tendency towards that though it's not as extreme as in other species. I mean most guys if you suddenly rose to fame and had lots of hot fangirls fawning over you, wouldn't you just go to town? You'd probably get bored after a while though.

Some people aim to be respectful and civilised. Others fuck away like autonamous subhuman animals. Choose your catagory.

I'm not sure "boredom" is the right term but I reckon overexposure can definately be injurious. I lived with a pornographer for a time when in Bristol and he used to pay me to view new videos and check if they're ok before putting them up on his site. He told me he used to really enjoy porno but these days it made him wince and he pretty much hated watching it now. Physical intimacy can be emotional, or it can be utterly detatched. It should at least sometimes be the former or have emotions in the proximity of that relationship for rhobust mental health methinks. Desensitisation is a motherfucker.

You think women wouldn't? Ever been in any major town or city on a Friday night? Those guys are having sex with someone.
Sorry that you think you had it rough in the first world.

You may be pleased to hear fal that last night something occured to make me rethink my position RE women are less jealous of "infidelity" than men.

Yes, because we all know that when something happens once, it means it happens all the time. :nono:

What other species? There are species where males impregnate everything and anything they can under any and all circumstances (some mulluscs will sit on the bottom of the ocean, stick out their penis and just ejaculate wildly in all directions in the hope that an egg-laying female is nearby for the sperm to rain down on), and there are species where the male sacrifices itself to be eaten by the female during copulation. There's absolutely nothing unusual or special about human sexual relationships in that regard.

We are somewhere on a spectrum of sexual promiscuity that is much much broader than what is normally expressed in our societies and cultures.

I remember reading that the average male claims to have 6 sexual partners during their lifetime, and the average female claims to have 2 sexual partners. That's of course mathematically impossible, so either one or both groups are lying. I can see good cultural reasons why males would exaggerate and females would do the opposite.

It’s not mathematically impossible. Merely very improbable.

If you restrict to heterosexual relationships and mean averages, it is impossible (given the actualy numbers of men and women in the population).

Aye, there’s the rub. So to speak.
