Skip to comments.Cheap dates: How the ‘price’ of sex has dropped to record lows.

In todays lousy economy, men can take comfort in knowing that there is one sought-after good that is becoming steadily more affordable: sex.
Regnerus likens the price of sex to the housing market. Too many foreclosures in one community, and the price of neighboring homes start to plummet. This is why single women in New York sometimes feel as though sex on the first date is a given: According to the market, it is.
Every sex act is part of a pricing of sex for subsequent relationships, Regnerus said. If sex has been very easy to get for a particular young man for many years and over the course of multiple relationships, what would eventually prompt him to pay a lot for it in the future -- that is, committing to marry?
Did you answer, Love? Youre adorable.
Sexual strategies for making men fall in love typically backfire, because men dont often work like that, Regnerus says.
congratulations men.....now live in your world.....
This article reminds me of something that’s been on my mind. When I was growing up (70’s & 80’s) streetwalking prostitutes were something seen only in the big cities.
Now? In my hometown (pop 12,000) there are a half dozen young females renting out their body parts, and they walk the streets within blocks of the police department.
It certainly says something about the women doing this but it also I think says something about just how bad this economy has gotten under Obama.
Pardon me? this MAN wants nothing to do with this.
The story sounds more like Man Child to me. Al Gore would approve.
Baloney. Women, if you want a ring, hold out. If he moves on, you are better off without him.
Now that is Change We Can Believe In!

Getting married to have sex is like buying a 747 to get free peanuts. If all you want is free peanuts, there is a lot more cost efficient ways of getting them.

Jude 1:7: Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Jude 1:20,21: But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
Need to do much better here.
Our society tells girls to be sluts and give it away from as early an age as possible. Why should this be a surprise?
Or for men.
But wait....there's more!
We'll even throw in a set of Ginsu knives!
Why would these women be so eager to turn themselves in "second-hand goods?"
You've come a long way baby. Those repressive white males of the 1950's would have still had you up on that ivory tower, but you've shown them!
"Women's liberation" may eventually win the prize for the most Orwellian term ever accepted by the masses.
“seems men have gotten everything they ever wanted..cheap females with no reguards to morals or virture.....
congratulations men.....now live in your world.....”
Well, that is the traditional feminist, man-hating line. Hey, it’s not the men that started it all with bra-burning. It’s the women that wanted sexual equality, sexual freedom, unlimited and free access to before and after birth control, and on and on.
The modern world needs Lysistrata to put things in order...
You get what you pay for.
I recall listening to Lysistrata featuring Hermione Gingold in the school library many years ago. I laughed so hard the librarian had to ask me to be quiet.
Thank ‘Pretty Woman” which made whoring socially acceptable and “romantic” and “adventurous” for young ladies
