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?

Leggs, that was intentional if you are smart enough to know then you know if not I can’t do nothing for ya. Bad thing is the guys she slept with don’t even know that everyone else knows that they slept with her….and now they play the good guy single role but hey…if that’s your game that’s your game…keep that happy wife at home.

ITL – Gone on and get yourself a drink.. Just be mindful when emailing and communicating with folks off the blog. Some folks are cool as ever and some as looking for nothing but a quick hookup. Not saying I’m all that (you know who) but I can attest at least 3 or 4 came aknocking and didn’t really want nothing. Shut ‘em down :)
