What I find interesting is that I said nothing about having a million sexual partners, but the first thing everyone thinks when I mention a women not having an emotional attachment to a man she's sleeping with, everyone yells "SL*T"!!!

Speaks volumes.

Remove pregnancy from the equation. Then what?
The "I want to miss you/keep things feeling new" relationship.
Maybe he should try:

"He adds that people with schizophrenia or autism often avoid eye-to-eye gaze, focus on less relevant areas of the face, and avoid meaningful social contact." - interesting....

Because women are all about how they feel. Men are not.

Yeh and those never break or leak or fall off.

But I guess you can just go get an abortion. But there are risks despite what your moral stance is on it.

I guess you're not getting my sarcasm. I am saying neither are effective forms of birth control. People who think they are, are highly misinformed.

I'm not sure what the relevance of this is to women not having an emotional attachment to a man she is sleeping with.

Okay, my thoughts are how sad for you that you share your body with someone you do not care about, and then expect others to become just as detached as yourself. Not that you don't have many just like you to associate with, if you could call it an association.

Personally, sex without emotional attachment is not a need for me. In fact, the idea leaves me cold. Why not just get yourself a toy?

Well you can see my other post on that. You said its so complicated to have sex and care about the person. I am just pointing out its complicated when sex enters the picture no matter what your feelings are. So why be cheap about it? We can't all be disassociated sociopaths even if we want to.
