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?

Sassy – There is this lady in the office (who maybe related to Sassy1) She always puts ’s’ on the ends of words that don’t need it or says crazy stuff…Vomick is one of those words. lol I had spaghetti (or like The Beau likes to call, pooghetti) and a salad…just ate too dayum much. whew!

Are you NOT ENTERTAINED?!?!?!?

Well….I *was* Sybil for forEVER…(lol) – and have admitted previously to using more than one screen name, but haven’t used Sybil for over a year now – at least I think it’s been that long.

I used to hide behind Sybil (multiple personality pun intended) as my meaner, more cutthroat, super smart ass, sht starting me. I wanted to be liked as SexyCool (as if that mattered). As Sybil, I didn’t give a damn.

But now…um…yeah…whatever….it is what it is….what I say is what I say.

That being said…I’m not that offended or surprised or anything other than amused and of course, entertained.

Leggs, one day I want to hear the full story of the $60,000 it keeps coming up in pieces. So now you are a natural suspect since you are capable of crimes. You are nice and sweet with gangster qualities. LOL

So, if we’re having confession I have to admit to posting once as Shirley Strawberry (in response to the lady that posted her Strawberry letter about whether or not her man loved her and they should stay together) and once as Grammarian, I think in response to someone being critical of a regular’s post. I think. Don’t even remember now.

Whew…I guess confession really is good for the soul. :)

Sybil ~ some of us knew what you were doing.

Heck BMW has done it to heal. Under those circumstances I can understand. But to sit there and purposely act like you’re having a conversation with a particular blogger and it’s in fact you talking to yourself is plum crazy.

Must remember not to introduce myself as one of those in real live. But if I ever get a record deal, that will be my rap name. LOL

“..straight up farm boy…it’s not a game boy..P’lito’s off them streets…but still smokin ‘purp boy!”
