I hear ya.
Another interesting part of that survey, brought to mind by your comment about "THAT guy," is that some men admitted to lying to their friends about their experiences with prostitutes, either falsely telling other men they'd had sex with a prostitute without her demanding payment or trying to pass off an attractive prostitute as a real-life girlfriend.
Yes, and I'm struck by how many people, man or woman, will sometimes, maybe even often, feel depressed afterwards.
We've got some tales of female egos running rampant too.
I see a lot of this dynamic in Second Life. A lot.
Orfeu said: I like the phrase." A judgment free friendship"
For many men...sex is the premier gateway to intimacy.
What is Intimacy. ???Why do we crave it.???
I once heard it described...as wanting to see....and be seen.Hmm could be something in that I guess.
A witness that I am alive...that I was here...that someone touched me...and that I touched someone's life.
That's what some people say about marriage (and LTR-commitment). It's making sure you have a witness to your life.
