    Angry Sex and Primal relationships

    I have recently been thinking over sex in the context of primitive survival. A female, especially with a child, without a male protector, would not survive. Females would have needed to make sure that they had a partner who was going to stick around before mating. Fathers and uncles and brothers would know this and beat to a pulp anyone who tried to do otherwise. So why then, does it seem that so many males want to spread their seed far and wide? Why is it so hard to find a guy who will not require sex in order to decide if he wants a realtionship?

    I think you have some misconceptions about tribal life, and are drawing some unfounded conclusions.

    I'd be interested in your conceptions.

    That primitive people lived in social structures known as tribes, and tended to adhere to the rules and customs of their respective tribes with regard to such matters. And that males have very little investment in "spreading their seed," and are therefore likely to be built by natural selection with a strong desire for doing so, as their genes have much to gain from the practice.

    I don't see the point in comparing sex now to back then.

    I do feel your assuming way too much too.

    How do you define relationship?

    I was just attempting to make sense of the phenomenon I described. Promiscuity does not seem to promote survival to me, but who knows? I don't recall that far back. I am not assuming anything, just exploring.

    I guess I would think a relationship would be more than just having a good time, that there would be some commitment and responsibility along with it.

    I feel the same. But sex is natural for a healthy relationship.

    Agreed. I guess it's a chicken or the egg question.

    I'v never been into casual relationships. The sex part of a relationship does not have to be on the first date does it.
