Economy of sex: supply and demand?

If you know anything about economics, you are familiar with supply and demand. It means something of value is desired and in demand. Then supply is how much the market can offer said desired/demand.

It doesn’t sound all that romantic but many consider dating, sex, and marriage as part of the “sexual economy” and apparently sex is a cheap commodity.

I recently read an article that said society puts a price tag on sex. We may or may not realize it, but we participate in it. Interestingly enough, with so many casual hook ups, friends with benefits, it’s complicated type of “situations” – we somehow have a twist on supply and demand in the sex market. Sex is easy to get and individuals aren’t always looking to exchange it for marriage or relationships.

Now, is this a good thing or a bad thing? Does it depend on what you want?

If you don’t like the current climate of the sex market, what do you do?

Thanks, cba! Luv you, dude! Yeah, just needed a “me” day. And, don’t worry (not that you are), but bon bons, donuts and cake is not my thing. May start drinking early, but no junk food (lol)

MLB = Man Law Book
WLB = Women Law Book

Great day to be home so I can truly laugh as loud as I want to.

Blackfoote – I think it’s been established or assumed at this point that the dual gender roles included UGA man….Wifey is MCH, MCH is UGA, UGA is Wifey and Wifey is UGA

So Wifey UGA and MCH all have a date but only one person will be there.

@Blackfoote ~ you’ve made a great point. We’re in pretend land still pretending to be other than what we are behind a screen. That’s rich!

I’m Leggs, but you can call me Lovely Brown, SlimNu or Pooty Tang.

I’m SlimNu, but you can call me SlimJim or Banging Booty

I’m Lovely Brown, but you can call me WonderfulB or Hippy Hipster.

Sorry!

@Celisea ~ oh my, “but only one person will show up.” I am in tears!!

@Blackfoote ~ we have all peeped each other’s style of writing, but I must admit I was clueless on MCH and Wifey. BUT, I did think it was too easy to get a blogger to meet at a place that’s put on the blog where anyone could show up. That was too risky. Many here go to great lengths to meet w/o others knowing…..that was too easy.

I mean really, some of these bloggers need to get writing jobs on a tv sitcom. Like ForReal and SlimNu. Now MCH/Wifey. It this is really true (which 9:41 and 9:42 seems to say so), for MCH to write that sordid stuff about wanting to jump the neighbor’s bones and basically rape him is disturbing (lol). Was that Wifey who said that?????

@Mr_NYC ~ thank you, I will check it out. Funny you talk about a smartphone app. A few here know I had the same phone for the past 6 years. Finally gave me my own upgrade and not give it to the rugrat. Upgraded about 3months ago, but it’s only a 3G and no smartphone. Nonetheless, I’m loving my new phone. {{sssh}} I now have a camera and can video. I’m now in the 21st century (to a certain extent). :wink:

Now that I think about it, Wifey is a red head. Red heads are not that common; thus making her a red head would be easy to identify. As Malcom said…….
