    I'm sure you've heard this many times before: Men are the hunters, women are the pray. A sucessfull hunter brings home a lot of game, while a sucessful pray either does not get cought at all or gives the hunter one hell of a run for his money.

    When a woman sleeps around, she requires no skill to capture and is not respected because she isn't performing her roll in the game very well.

    Generaly speaking, men and women play diferent rolls, so it is compleatly inapropriat to compair them to each other.

    Only if fidelity in early man relationships could be verified, so to speak, would a caveman risk life and limb for a woman and her offspring. If he couldn't be sure if the offspring were his, he'd hardly risk his life against predators or protect his woman from rape and worse.
    Actually in many cultures it is fully expected that Females will be virgins when they get married. Yet men are welcome to do anyone they want. The thing about that that baffles me is that women accept this.

    Correction. Some have evolved beyond Lucy...others haven't been so fortunate.
    They're just not extinct. Perhaps, unfortunately.

    Lord, all this time I thought sex was about recipricol attraction, wanting the other, and such stuff.

    But now I find out it's a contest! A game! Capture the prey!

    "Ah, you must submit now, my fairest Gertrude!"

    "Nay, but for my honour I must send thee away!"

    You're a right crack-up, Jerry!

    This is why i have sex only with women. It is about love and relationship. It is not about shear numbers.

    It's human nature, basic psychology, so apparently if this is a matter of evolution (which I don't think it is anyway) we apparently have NOT evolved past it.

    What baffles me is that MEN accept this. Imagine living in a culture where you aren't expected to live to a higher standard and keep yourself until you're married just because you're a man. I guess these cultures don't value men as much as they value women.

    I do agree that we do set the bar low in this era. This is also the problem we have with the abortion numbers. No one keeps themselves for marriage. It is an interesting point thatyou raise.
