Dear Margie;

Welcome to the forum.  Thank you for all the interesting points you 
have been raising so far.  

With reference to this post I would like to tell you that this is not 
my way experience of seeing sex.  I'm a European which means that in 
Europe we don't have the puritan taboos America seems to have.  
However, Being sexualy liberated does not mean that some of us have sex 
like animals.  Sexuality to some of us means to express an emotion with 
someone through the Art of Sex.  I call it the Art of Sex because this 
is what it is when you have sex with someone you love.  I don't 
understand having sex with someone I don't love.  I am unable to have 
sex if there is no love or something romantic with that person.  An 
animal does't have this kind of emotion, doesn't have to love its 
partner in order to have sex.  I agree with you that sex has to be 
something free.  

In general Europeans don't make judgements about others sexual lifes. 
In this respect we are very free.  It's perhaps this freedom we have 
what makes us to be very selective in our sexuality.  However, I admit 
to experience a certain repulsion towards cheap animal sex.  

When humans are involved in sex is important to take into consideration 
third parties and never hurt other because of a sexual appetite.  
Therefore can not be said if I'm hungry I eat.

Welcome again
