Thread Name: BS: Dating Behaviour - am I out of touch ?
Subject: RE: BS: Dating Behaviour - am I out of touch ?
judgmental: Inclined to make judgments, especially moral or personal ones.

ethics (used with a sing. verb) The study of the general nature of morals and of the specific moral choices to be made by a person; moral philosophy.

I see a split in two views in this thread, those who believe that sexual activity carries a responsiblity with it and those who think sexual activity is just for fun. Because sexual activity 1. can cause pregnancy if the couple is fertile and 2. can transmit serious diseases (and multiple partners increase the chance of cervical cancer for example) I think sexual activity carries a responsibility. People who have ethics must make value judgements, moral choices. It is only reasonable that many people make value judgements about sexual activity - how many partners, how well they know their partner, how committed their partner is to staying with them and not be promiscuous (promiscuity increasing the chance of std's), first of all, how compatible they are in character and other ways that increase the chance that they will stay together... these are reasonable things to consider BEFORE having sex with someone.
