    They're essentially two different words for the same damn thing.

    It's great fun, Mr. Thomas. Well, when using a little common sense and precautions, of course. In my humble opinion - along with the proof of mega-millions of conservatives existing and participating in the human experience called sex - sex isn't driven by political philosophies.

    I'll never go to my grave with the regrets of being a sexual prude. In my day...my life was filled with some pretty exciting women.

    Life is so short, Mr. Thomas. Guilt, shame, remorse created in the minds of the masses by people who spend their lives convincing other people how to indulge in them....is the real sin.

    No, I'm not Satan's kid...maybe.

    I don't see any problem with this whatsoever. In fact I think it's a good thing to have open and healthy discussion about how to improve communication and better please one's partner. Why is this bad exactly? It's adults.

    Now, again, I never said that military members couldn't be promiscuous. Hell! The only time I've ever really been "promiscuous" myself, for however brief a period it might have been, was in the military.

    I'm simply saying that it isn't quite the same "free-for-all" culture that you're going to find on college campuses. There are differences.
    None of which was what we were talking about. We were talking about picking up strangers from a bar. Hard to get into trouble for those things you mentioned just from doing that except in that off chance you pick up say an officer or you are married, or they are.

    It is the same type of "free for all" culture that you find on college campuses though. There are very few differences in reality. You are trying to make college out to be much different than it truly is, exaggerating the true situation.

    Alright. Let's back this thing up. We've lost sight of our goal here.

    First off, we're both right. Yes, service members are held to a higher standard of conduct than civilians. No, this does not mean that they are less promiscuous.

    Secondly, the original issue of debate here was the nature of "one night stands" on college campuses, and whether or not they could be said to be heavily reliant upon (usually poor) drunken decision making.

    In that vein, while bar hook-ups certainly do happen in the military, it's a lot more common, in my experience, to simply find service members screwing around with opposite sex members of their own units that they happen to work with on a regular basis than it is to see them taking home strangers or one time acquaintances in the middle of the night. Considering that many of those liaisons take place on deployments, alcohol and drugs often aren't involved.

    Prostitution plays a much, much larger role in (male) military promiscuity than it does for men in the civilian world as well. Bragg, for instance, is infamous for its prostitutes, as is basically any posting overseas. This doesn't necessarily have to be a "drunken" pursuit either.

    In short, while there are similarities between college and military sexual cultures, there are many differences as well. Military promiscuity is usually not as heavily bar and club focused as the college variety, and it isn't as heavily tied to substance abuse.

    With civilian college students, by way of contrast, somewhere around 80% report being either intoxicated or high during their last hook-up, and a large number involve partners who are only "acquaintances" at best as well. In short, substance abuse is, for all intents and purposes, an intrinsic aspect of the experience of college promiscuity, as is the incautious selection of partners.

    Frankly, if you're trying to claim that I'm wrong about that, and that both of the above are intrinsic aspects of military and civilian sexual experiences alike, I'm not really sure how you think that helps your case here anyway.

    It would actually only go to prove mine. It would show that cultures which promote promiscuous behavior tend to almost universally breed irresponsible behavior as well, and that no amount of training or discipline can remove that fundamental aspect of promiscuous endeavors.

    And having lived in Hawaii, where there is every branch of the military, I can tell you that the bars were filled with many more servicemembers, particularly getting drunk, than college students. The vast majority of those servicemembers at home were likely to simply hookup with someone from a bar, possibly even a drunken college student than with someone from their unit. Unit relationships were much more likely to be that, longer relationships rather than one-night-stands.

    Plus, the military is cracking down hard on the purchasing of prostitutes, not so much on simply going out and hooking up in a bar (except in trying to ensure they don't take home someone who is so drunk it is really rape).

    The problem is that neither the military nor colleges work toward teaching about healthy sexual encounters, rather only try to tell both "don't sleep around", which obviously does not work. It is like when you teach a child, you don't punish them without giving them an explanation for why they are being punished and work toward changing that behavior. In fact, the best way to change the behavior of a child is to explain to them, in terms they can understand, why they shouldn't do something, rather than simply making rules for them to obey and saying "because I said so". The difference is though that you are teaching adults when it comes to college students and servicemembers, which means that they can be taught why they shouldn't do certain activities, those that are actually harmful to them (having unsafe sex, staying in unsafe/unhealthy relationships) and teach them how to build healthier, safer relationships, of many kinds, which is what these workshops are about.

    And which bars were you going to exactly?

    Charleston is a huge military town. It also has at least four different colleges. You're certainly not going to find any more service members than college students in any of our bars. You'll be lucky to see any, in point of fact.

    No, not all intra-unit relationships are monogamous either. Hell! I went through AIT with a guy who screwed half of our graduating class all by himself without giving any of his conquests a second thought afterwards.

    Frankly, as far as the prostitution goes, cracking down too much would strike me as being a mistake.

    Forgive my bluntness here, but you're a lot less likely to catch an STD from a prostitute, especially in a country where that kind of thing is legal and regulated, than you are from the kind of young woman liable to give it up for free in a bar.

    Prostitutes approach sex as a job. They have a vested interest in using protection if they want to maintain their livelihood, and they also have a vested interest in staying sober enough to make sure that neither they nor their john's forget it.

    Bar skanks kind of... Well, don't. They're "just looking to have a good time."

    Just sayin'...

    Are you serious with this crap?

    Really?

    Really, really??

    May I remind you that this event focuses around classes with titles like: "How to get laid," "How to negotiate a threesome," and "How to give 'O face' oral sex?"

    These are all salacious topics, focusing around sexual behavior in a blatantly promiscuous context.

    Where do "healthy relationships" even begin to enter into the equation here?

    I'm sorry, but the simple fact of the matter is that no aspect of what you're selling here makes any sense whatsoever. First off, there is no such thing as "safe," "responsible," or "healthy" promiscuity anymore than there is such a thing as safe, responsible, or healthy binge drinking. The entire purpose of both acts are thrill-seeking irresponsibility for selfish personal satisfaction. The fact that the two almost universally go hand-in-hand with one another simply makes the problem that much worse.

    You are living in a fantasy world if you think anything taught by this university in a class focusing on either "getting laid," or "negotiating threesomes," will further the cause of "creating healthy relationships."

    Secondly, if the purpose here really was to teach "safe sex," they wouldn't need half a dozen different courses, all promising instruction in other, completely unrelated promiscuous behaviors, to do it.

    In short, the words "healthy relationship" and "one night stand" don't even belong on the same page, let alone in the same sentence, or the same seminar. I'm frankly stunned that you seem to think they do.

    You are living in a fantasy world if you think anything taught by this university will further the cause of "healthy relationships."

    Secondly, if the purpose here really was to teach "safe sex," they wouldn't need half a dozen different courses, all promising instruction in other, completely unrelated promiscuous behaviors, to do it.
    10 zip codes in Hawaii, on Oahu, beat the top populace zip code in Charleston, SC (which I have lived close to as well in the military, in Goose Creek, although I was not old enough to get drunk there but could still get in the bars, at least at the time, and even went to Thee Southern Belle) when it comes to military population. 3 more zips beat the second and third highest for Charleston. So yes, there are more servicemembers in Hawaii than there are in SC. There are also fewer students in Oahu than in Charleston, likely due to the fact that the island is only about 4 times as big as Charleston, with a lot of open spaces and government owned spaces, with people living on only about half the island. Honolulu is only about half the size of Charleston, if that.

    Prostitution isn't legal in the US. And most military members sleep with someone here in the US, usually someone they pick up in a bar, a stranger. There simply aren't enough women in the military to, putting it bluntly, go around. My husband and I met in a bar. Both military, different branches. We went out prior to doing anything though. This is what happens.
