...but when a woman does it, she's a whore. Interesting.
I recently spent an evening with a mixed group of friends, we had some drinks and somehow we got onto the subject of sex, relationships and one-night-stands. A guy friend said he had 20ist, maybe closer to 25 sexual partners, he got loud cheering and even some howling in response. I said that so did I, and I got the blankstares, the "Really" and the negative "wow" in response. All of this happened in the span of five minutes.
Me being me, I had to turn it into a whole other discussion about why the hell is it okay when a man does it and frowned upon when it's a woman. I have to say that I was more surprised about the comments from the female part of the group than the male. I would have expected a man to think differently about a woman who had a lot of partners, but I wouldn't have expected a woman to tell me that the she thinks that the only difference between a promiscuous woman and a hooker is that one charges and the other doesn't.
Personally, I feel that a woman is equally as entitled to enjoy her body as she sees fit as a man is. So I like sex. I do not need or want a committed relationship at this point in my life. I'm old enough and responsible enough to enjoy one without the other. What's the problem?
