Video: The Economics of Sex

Awesome video on the Economics of Sex and what might be cheapening it: the pill.


  1. Disagree. This sums it up.

    1. Dear friend,

      I read the article.

      1.) I do agree with her concept that relationships are personal human-to-human interactions and it may be weird to relate it to money and economics.

      2.) From an argumentative stand-point, it's hard to take someone seriously when the article is full with expletives and straight rant. One of her rebuttals to a direct quote from the video was simply, "Oh, shut the f**** up". It's not professional and discredits any argument she may be trying to persuade the reader. I would have been more interested in the why she thinks the way she thinks.

      3.) She starts the article with:
      "The longer I live and the more I read and the deeper I fall in love and the less I give a f**** and the more patience I lose and the more perspective I gain, the more certain I become that the people who most aggressively try to define love for others have never actually experienced it themselves."

      For someone who has experienced premarital sex and contraception and marital sex with no contraception both in loving relationships, I cannot begin to express how much more life-giving the latter is. I'd like to hear from someone who has experienced both and would say otherwise.

      I write more about this here:

      In it, I wrote: "Imagine the best kind of love making possible. Imagine it to be with someone who knows and loves everything about you, your faults and your weaknesses along with your triumphs and strengths. Imagine it to be with someone that you do not worry will ever leave you because he or she has promised their life to you, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in good times and in bad. Imagine this person loving you so much that he or she proclaimed these promises not only to you but publicly in front of your friends, family, and God. Imagine the kind of love making that is free from worrying about contracting a harmful disease. Imagine the kind of love making that can naturally plan and space the conceiving of children without the use of artificial elements. Imagine the kind of love making that is so joyful, so life-giving with someone who loves you so much, that he or she wants to create another you. Imagine the kind of love making with someone who does not say, “I want everything…but not that” and instead says simply, “I want everything.”

      Peace and joy,
