I fully agree with your point - promiscuity is seen as something to be proud of with a lot of males, then the reverse is applied to females.
I think that if you are about double the average number of partners, then it could
be regarded as promiscuous behaviour - although this is not
necessarily my point of view.
I'm pretty sure that some races are more promiscuous - but I believe that this is dependant on opportunity/culture/motives.
Not sure how things are in different countries, but the UK has one of the highest teenage pregnancy levels in the europe, if not the highest.
Does this make UK people promiscuous? Yes, in some circumstances, no in others - like you guys say, difficult to quantify.
Teenage and unmarried pregnancies can be indicative of a promiscuous society - although I have to say that I'm not a big believer in marriage, and
I'm not sure how having a child outside of marriage would make you promiscuous.
Living in a nanny state, where kids are taught that they can do no wrong has a lot to do with the teenage/underage pregnancy rate in the UK, but that
is a cultural rather than racial issue.
I guess what I'm really looking for is opinions - the ones so far have been great
