I wouldn't indulge personally as sex is part of love, imo. Not really a fan of "casual" relationships... or quickies. They lack emotion.
I am kinda live and let live, I still think we need strong rules and guidelines, but that is why I think prostitution "works" (for want of a better word) in Queensland. I have no problem with quickies, I think they are very exciting and just one spice of life. But I also think there is a time and a place, and some rules. As long as people realise no means freaking bloody well absolutely NO. It simply has to be completely mutual. Alcohol is not an excuse either. I am out of that market now, but in my younger days.............
I have always felt inside that sex and love are two very different things. If you can combine them, I think that is a major bonus, but I do not feel they are tied together. I can truly love someone and not have a sexual feeling for them at all.
LOL, it would not be at all acceptable in the society I was brought up in, but if I was Inuit, I doubt it would bother me one bit. Very smart, and impressive that. Such an isolated community would suffer genetic disorders if the ensuing race stayed "close to home" by having a more open relationship, the Inuit's have managed to achieve greet genetic dispersion and keep the specious strong. It is a tradition that so many frown upon, which makes them stronger than those who frown upon them! I have always wondered what intuition allowed these people to take on their own set or morals within their culture, that would benefit them as a species so much! Did they know that genetics would fail if they interbred? Quite a mystery I always thought, and it impresses me to no end. France interbred for the sake of wealth, and genetically, people suffered greatly. Many defects and abnormalities, but the bank was solid!
If my wife sat me down tonight, and confessed to me that she was a prostitute for X amount of years before I met her, it would not change my love for her, or my view and opinion of her one iota. I'd probably laugh to begin with and go BS!!!!
Interesting questions, I think I even surprised myself with some of these replies! Good call Eldorado!
