Do you outgrow promiscuity?

Do you think promiscuity is something you outgrow over time/as you get older, or do you think it's something that's deeply engrained in certain people, and that they'll probably be that way forever?

I don't think you ever out grow promiscuity. My experience has been that I found my self being more and more so until I married. When I came out and the marriage began to fall apart, I found I need more and more sex with guys to make up for the years I lost. I suppose I will continue to be so, I do enjoy men so.

Good question. I think most are not comfortable with it. Promiscuity is considered a dirty word. I, personally, love multiple partners as long as we are all comfortable with it and are safe. If it wasn't so socially unacceptable I believe more would enjoy the adventures and pleasure that is possible.

Hi Daisy the older I get the more promiscuous I get. When I was younger I did what others said I should do. By my 30's I chose to live my life for me and not the expectations of others.

Just speculating, but I think the chronically promiscious will do until their graves. For the rest it will fade with age - it takes a lot of energy - though the thought will never fade.

I believe you have tendencies either one way or the other and are not likely to simply outgrow it as a matter of time... it may be that it changes as the relationships you are in or not in change.. but I don't think it is a simple thing...

i wouldn't know... i've never been promiscuous ...doubt highly i ever will be either.

i submit that the answer to your question is as diverse as there is personalities.

...That which does not kill me merely pisses me off!...

Biologically we designed to be promiscuous... we have phyiscal and psychological markers that encourage us to seek muliple patners who will gives us the widest chance to produce the most prolific offspring... It is a fact! It is our animal past...

The full glory of love is designed to wane withing 4-6 years, which is just long enough to have had children and raised them past their most dependant time. Suggesting that, biologically, we should then move on!

I am not saying I agree - kids need parents - but it these are interesting views!!

I used to be but as I get older I seem to be more picky about who I would want to do stuff with.

Good question Daisy. I do not think promiscuity is something that can be outgrown. It's in you or it isn't. I have a saying, "it is is what it is."

Problem is that society and all it's rules try to put a guilt trip on those that are promiscuious. Speaking for myself, I let that genie out of the bottle a long time ago and I don't thin it's going back in.

I try to be good, but when I meet the right person and there is that hot out!
