The term promiscuity usually refers to indiscriminate, casual sexual encounters or a high frequency of sexual relationships with a large number of partners, such as is found in nymphomania, satyriasis, so called "Don Juans", and many homosexuals.
People can become more promiscuous when they are feel free of social constraints, for example, when travelling abroad alone.
According to surveys, British women are the least promiscuous travellers in Europe, with 3% admitting to having sex with local people while abroad, as opposed to 12% of British men. 20% of Swiss and Austrian men and women admit to affairs while travelling.
1. Promiscuity has come to include the careless attitude to sexual relations engendered in a society which allows even adolescents the knowledge and the opportunity to engage in sexual experimentation without the moral discipline or the understanding to control their emotions. It involves casual and exploitive sexual relations, limited communication and irresponsible parenthood.
2. The sex culture, sustained by an irresponsible media, creates an environment in which individuals are encouraged to believe that they have an inalienable right to unlimited sex. This view has reduced sex, directly or indirectly, to a form of consumerism in its widest sense, and the ultimate extension of the dogma of market forces. If family values are to be taken seriously, it should be recognized that the encouragement of such market forces is wholly inappropriate in this context since it only leads to unbridled selfishness.
