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?

@DreamsM ~ Kym is doing well….she’s working on her life

Raqi is handling her business, but says hello to those who care for her.

ARed is very, very busy and doesn’t have a lot of time to blog.

@PR ~ remember the movie “Usual Suspects.” Usually the ones right under your nose. Yes, I’m nice, sweet with gangster tendencies….I was raised on Concrete Jungle. Things then to rub off on ya!

And, if you know anything about me, I ain’t no snitch (Satchel on The BoweryBoys). I love a good game that’s fun and not malicious. Changing monikers and having the person figure who’s who is fun to me.

I think Kym is Kaiser Soze.

Aww man I loved that movie! Did anyone see Dr. Doolittle when they did a little spoof of it with the little hamster(or gerbil or sumthin)….when they walked by his little cage he was in the corner saying, “I am Kaiser Soze”…hi-lari-ous. Okay, carry on..

Purple/chink – I started blogging on here I want to say, back in 2005. I came on because I saw on the front page they were discussing The Apprentice and I was all into that show back then. Just kinda stuck around after that.

@PR ~ guess you noticed I purposefully haven’t spoken about that day. I was there (all by myself). It was announced between 4:00-5:00. I asked what time you planned on being there and you said 4:00. I asked if that was possible with you going to the festival. You then said “didn’t you tell people 5:00?” I said yes I did. Told you I would try to be there by 4:30 to secure a table. Since you were planning on being there at 5:00, I wasn’t too worried about actually being there at 4:30. I arrived at 5:18. I paid 2 hrs in parking, $6 my man. $6. I sat and I sat and I sat. You had my number and since you told another you waited 45 mins. thought you might at least call to see how far away I was. I was there, got an appetizer than booked….it’s all good.

I got there at 4 and waited for 45 minutes and left and I spoke to the other person and by the time she gave me your number I was long gone..out in the rain and getting ready to leave Georgia. If I was the one who got the times messed up I apologize even though I met a woman with nice legs who I call “Leggs?” and she said thank you. But if it was my fault and error I apologize, do you have paypal? I can reimburse you for your parking expenses.

@Mo ~ go read 9:41 and 9:42. MCHammock forgot to change his moniker.

How many have thought that 9:42 may have been a plant? Notice neither one has come back on trying to clean up the mess. They may want us to think it’s one person to keep their scent on the DL. They may actually be meeting this evening, but no need for us to ask about the evening because we now think it’s one person. Just a thought.
