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?

This blog is really getting out of hand….When I first started reading it, I would check it out from time to time (if I was bored at work). But now with all this reinvention from a man to woman to only being nobody that will not post again under those names!!! WTH!! I’m starting to wonder if the whole blog is really 2-3 people???? But I did think that it was very suspect that they were talking about “meeting” after only talking on a blog….Oh well

But on topic, I guess this coincides with the topic from yesterday. You gotta pay to play!! If you spend enough time, enegery, and money on a woman she will give in one way or another.

Well if a woman isn’t interested in a man no matter how much money he shells out or the amount of time he spends with her, if she’s not feeling him then he is wasting his time. But I do think that if a woman is interetsed in a man that eventually things will pop off. If a man wants to do things to ensure that things pop off faster all he has to do is spend a little more money and a little more time. IMO

When I first started blogging, I did so for entertainment and to glean what others have to say. The diatribe has been interesting to say the least. However, I don’t understand why some have to come on here and represent various personalities. Manup and be yourself. Stop changing monikers all willy nilly. I am Leggs. How I represent myself on this blog is how I am in the real world. If you can’t say what you want under your original moniker, then don’t create another one to hide behind. Stop being a punk. Eventually, the detectives here will blast you to Shameville quickly. Now, MCH/Wifey will go down in the anals of blog history with other memorable characters. All of which have been ousted due to stupidity,

Detective SlimNU, you have been promoted to Chief!

Slim now standing on the fake blog bar, since we’ve discovered that it isn’t even stocked with real liccka, just water and rubbing alcohol…and flashes the CT to prove that she is who she says she is…the room goes black until she pulls her pants back up.

So basically MCH came in as the newly separated married guy, then chose to create his recently separated wife under the moniker WIFEY…then went a bit further to create UGA as a new dynamic as the guy that comes in a tries to start a 3some at Bonefish. This almost feels like watching a soap opera or wrestling. If I had known, I would’ve been Tivo’ing these episodes.

@SassyMe ~ this is just a blog. No need to pump yourself up (unless your suffering with erectile dysfunction).

I can see why so many are against online dating. Be yourself. And, stop posting pictures that are 10 years old. Note to self: change that picture which is 2.5 years old.

The answers are limitless as to what would possess an adult to come on a blog and pretend to be other characters..cause that’s what they are,characters. Maybe they don’t have a life,or are bored with the one they have and this blog is their Calgon(take me awaaaaa)..I ‘on know..

Ok, so Dreams is actually 8 different monikers in 1
Purp just claimed a total of 3
It’s just me and the CT
For Real has his little buddy the AA dolphin
Swiss – there is no telling how many monikers he reps

Who am I leaving out? Come to think of it, that’s why the blog has really slow days when one person is out because they’re actually acting as 18 different folks

@PR ~ your moniker reminded me of something. I did change my moniker once when I stuck up Blogsville a few years back. Came in the back door and held everyone at gunpoint. My moniker was “Stick em up….” So, I too am guilty….walking away with my head hung in shame.

@PR ~ yes, I did. It was my warped sense of humor going awry. I stuck up Professor for her diamond earrings. It was a time when she kept ranting about her $60,000 a year and we all got along. It was a joke that escalated into a robbery. It was a prank that took on a life of its own. I confessed the next morning who I was…it was priceless (lololol). A lot thought it was someone else and was shocked that I was the culprit. I quickly put the life of crime behind after seeing how difficult it was for me to get those earrings.
