Fellow T-Men and Vixen.
I intend this post to more or less get an idea on people’s views of the current “view” of sex and whether its just something to have as in a hookup or if it means just a lil more to you.
Here's why i ask: I am working on my PhD in criminal Psychology and one of the main areas of my reasearch is working with sexual offenders, as well as other adolescent offenders both sexual and non...In all these guys (and some gals yes) it seems very clear (esp. with the sexual offenders) that society's current approach of divorcing emotion from the act of sex contributes in large part to the serious pathology of these offenders. Even if it doesn't contribute directly to the problem, what we have is the idead of get what you want, without paying a price. If no emotion exists, the offender is able to easily rationalize what he does (in a sense, there is no conscience)..
Now, the primary purpose of sex is obviously to further the species, and of course a secondary biological purpose is physical pleasure, but without emotional bonds between the persons engaging that are more than fleeting, the stage seems to be set for serious issues down the road, either with the results of the sex or the reinforced notion that such behavior requires no emotional committment?
Thoughts please...I see this over and over again with many sex offenders but its not just them, its the adolescent offender and others like him on the way to criminality who are constantly bombarded with the media message of "get laid" but "don't care about the person you lay" or "sex at any cost"
