Book dating man married


Today, with women making up at least 50% of the labor force and more than 50% of college graduates, there is less reason to withhold sex.Sex simply becomes “less consequential.” In fact, because women are more scarce in the “market for sex,” they can command a higher “price,” and feel very desired and appreciated—at least for a short time.They also increasingly perceive that if they want a longer romantic relationship and eventually marriage, perhaps they had better consent to sex to get the process started.



Whether one is worried about these developments, or simply wishes to manage them to secure a particular notion of freedom, Regnerus’ book is required reading.Because of sex differences, this means that there are more women in the marriage pool and more men in the sex pool.These “ratios” mean a scarcity of women in the first market and of men in the second market, which affects “prices.” Regarding pornography, Regnerus points out that in an age of digital flat-screens and surround sound, porn is closing the gap between real and fake sex.For those happy with the new mating market, he has good news: “don’t worry, the new [relational realities] aren’t going anywhere.” For religions and reformers hoping to increase the price of sex, however, the news is difficult.
