Women are more physically and emotionally vulnerable to casual sex. We are wired this way by evolution. Unless you are a woman with high testosterone (less than 20% of women) you are very unlikely to enjoy casual sex, in fact you will feel very USED (like me). Men are wired to spread their seed far and wide. The more no-strings-attached sex they can get - the better - as far as they're concerned. They have nothing to lose. Promiscuous men father more children even in today's society. These are the men who's genes will dominate the human gene pool in 100 years time.
Women lose power by sleeping around. The man gets what he wants (sex) and is left to dictate the terms of the relationship, while the woman is left relatively powerless.
Our bodies and minds have not adapted to modern feminist culture. It may be great in theory to say that women are sexually liberated and should earn the same money as men, but in practice this completely upsets the natural balance of relationships between men and women.
Women still expect men to court them, pay for them, and pamper them, while they clamor into the very jobs that allow men to do so. If women do pay 50:50 on dates and give sex freely before marriage, they say they feel used and unappreciated. This is nature. We have to re-think modern culture and the mess we have created with sexual liberation, pre-marital sex, rising divorce etc etc.
The sexual revolution was supposed to liberate women, but it hardly did so at all. It just opened up a new can of worms.
It is still interesting the second time around.
