Men and sex and stuff...

I was talking to a friend at work about men and sex and the stuff. She was worried about how she couldn’t trust some men to be faithful. Well no, you can’t. The same can be said of some women. While I don’t condone screwing around and upsetting your lover, I also know some people are never going to be able to do monogamy. It’s not in their nature.

And as for trust? To me it comes down to this – trust yourself and your instincts about another. Take the blinders off and really look at your lover without sex interfering.

As for monogamy? I’m not sure if it exists any more. Invest in condoms, accept all human beings falter and fail and sometimes loving the one you’re with is more important than chaining him to your wrist.

A very intelligent and mature opinion, Amarinda. Many people now live for a long time; monogamy can become like shackles in that time. I guess the trouble is, despite logic, our emotions always intervene. But your concept, if we could adopt it, would be great.
