I am saying that we live in a world that sells one thing and delivers something else. I am saying that we live in a world that young people are not safe to walk around half naked, underwear less, presenting a, "desire me" personification. All the #MeToos in the world is not going to undo the trauma that earned them the MeToo badge of comradeship.
Immediately this biblical quote comes to mind: "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." (Matthew 5:28)
I am not saying that its a womens fault that a man commits a heinous act.
I am not putting all the blame on the female.
Yes, one can addicted to sex but having dependency to a drug and being a sex addict is no comparison on a deeper level.
SEX & HEROIN
We know that both sex and heroin flood the brain with high levels of dopamine. Perhaps not coincidentally, both sex and heroin excite the same region of the brain, a structure called the ventral tegmental area (VTA). This is the area that controls the release of dopamine. This explains why heroin addicts can experience orgasmic-like pleasure as a result of their drug use; it also explains why heroin addicts have suppressed sex drives.
Thank you for writing this and your relentless work in the abuse industry you are in.
Also contrary to your idea the Spartans made their women wear nothing
"Because we are also the only ones who give birth to men." Spartan women were famous in ancient Greece for having more freedom than elsewhere in the Greek world. To contemporaries outside of Sparta, Spartan women had a reputation for promiscuity and controlling their husbands.
In Tunisia, the men are not allowed to be in the beach with the women. Maybe you want us to go that way ?

Gymnos' means 'naked', and the gymnasium was the place where Greek athletes trained, more or less naked. They did often wearing a kynodesme, a thin leather thong that pulled the penis upward – it was tied in a bow and fastened around the waist. Trainers could get the attention of their athletes by giving their leashes a quick yank. The kynodesme was not exclusively used by athletes, but they are the group most often seen wearing the item on vases and statues. People taking part in the komos, a ritualistic drunken procession, also wore the thong. It is not known why exercising in the nude began but it is believed that the custom started in Sparta, probably so the male body could be admired in all its beauty. This is why athletes covered themselves in oil too – this was a very expensive practice and needed public and private subsidies to pay for it. The Greeks loved to show off their bodies and all-over tans and contrast them with pale, flabby foreigners. So technically, the correct thing to wear in a gym is 'nothing'. Although we don't recommend you try it at your local. Other words with the same root include Gymnosperm, which means a plant with naked seeds (such as the pine, hemlock fir, etc.). To gymnologise, on the other hand, means to debate whilst naked.
So, if 85% of the male population thinks with his genitals first and his brain second, and you put this male population around gorgeous females with breasts and butts showing like its cool, no wonder there is so much sexual assault and harassing in our society!
Its all about the dopamine Partly true - withdrawal symptoms of heroin are worse however than abstinence from sex.
