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.
