I wish more than ANYTHING that I had this valuable insight into how men think and feel about sex, and promiscuous women when I was a teenager. Lasting impressions: loving, caring, kind, the provider, amazing lover. I didn’t reveal to him my exact number, I simply said, “I haven’t slept with many guys”. Breaking trust in a relationship is the WORST thing you can ever do. David Buss’ seminal book The key problem women have always had to face is selecting a man who would be willing to commit to a long-term relationship.If I have a daughter I will be educating her on this valubale life lesson. Amongst my circle of friends it was considered a below average number, but on a global scale I now realise it’s a very high number. He was so angry with me for ‘pulling the wool over his eyes’.trying to make myself appear better than I really was. I wanted him to get to know me as a person first, and love and accept me for who I am today. A woman who mated with a reliable man who was more likely to commit to her was more likely to have children that survived and thrived.Promiscuity, that is, casual sexual behavior in women, is no longer viewed quite as negatively as it used to be.I think the principal reason for this change in attitude is the much longer period of time women date before settling down and marrying. I cannot remember the last time some man expressed reservations to me about a particular woman he was interested in because she had been “promiscuous.” Some men have an inordinate interest in their girl-friend’s previous sexual relationships, but most do not.These people will have dates on a regular basis, and they may or may not be having sexual relations.
It led her to share a story that is painful to read, but I offer it here as a public service announcement. Feminism did not rid society of the sexual double standard.
The protocols and practices of dating, and the terms used to describe it, vary considerably from country to country and over time.
While the term has several meanings, the most frequent usage refers to two people exploring whether they are romantically or sexually compatible by participating in dates with the other.
“Promiscuous” is a term that is almost always used when speaking about a woman. It refers to a woman—usually a young woman—who has sex frequently and casually.
This behavior is considered reprehensible and evidence of an emotional failing of some sort.
A single young man who sleeps readily with a number of women would probably not have any label attached to his behavior.
