I have a question, and I didn't find answers for it on the net.
'Are there rational reasons why most of people confine themselves to the monotonic, monogamic marital sex?'
Sex can be taxonomized under the category of bodily pleasures, and in this regard, it might become something like eating or sleeping, etc., but more compulsive.
Lot's of people free themselves from limitations so that they can enjoy more in their lives. People eat fast food, drink alchohole, sleep late in bed, and enjoy their physical senses more. However, lot's of them usually don't go beyond having sexual relationship with their wives or husbands.
Once I heard the beautiful phrase "morality over sexuality" which was describing that the limitations are based on subjective moral principals, not objective rules.
I want to ask weather philosophy has anything to offer in this regard or not.
Are these types of questions in scope in this site?
