Charles Bukowski
“Strangers when you meet, strangers when you part -a gymnasium of bodies namelessly masturbating each other. People with no morals often considered themselves more free, but mostly they lacked the ability to feel or to love. So they became swingers. The dead fucking the dead. There was no gamble or humor in their game -it was corpse fucking corpse. Morals were restrictive, but they were grounded on human experience down through the centuries. Some morals tended to keep people slaves in factories, in churches and true to the State. Other morals simply made good sense. It was like a garden filled with poisoned fruit and good fruit. You had to know which to pick and eat, which to leave alone.”
Charles Bukowski, Women

Cassandra Clare
“How many other people?" Alec asked. "Roughly."
Magnus shook his head. "I can't count, and it doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is how I feel about you."
"More than a hundred?" Alec asked. Magnus looked blank. "Two hundred?"
"I can't believe we're having this conversation now," Magnus said.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Fallen Angels

Augustine of Hippo
“[Y]ou are not ashamed of your sin [in committing adultery] because so many men commit it. Man's wickedness is now such that men are more ashamed of chastity than of lechery. Murderers, thieves, perjurers, false witnesses, plunderers and fraudsters are detested and hated by people generally, but whoever will sleep with his servant girl in brazen lechery is liked and admired for it, and people make light of the damage to his soul. And if any man has the nerve to say that he is chaste and faithful to his wife and this gets known, he is ashamed to mix with other men, whose behaviour is not like his, for they will mock him and despise him and say he's not a real man; for man's wickedness is now of such proportions that no one is considered a man unless he is overcome by lechery, while one who overcomes lechery and stays chaste is considered unmanly.”
Augustine of Hippo, Sermons 1-19

Gena Showalter
“If only Paris and the Harpies had gotten along. But Promiscuity had taken one look at the beautiful women and deemed them “too much effort.”
Gena Showalter, The Darkest Whisper

Christine de Pizan
“Does a rake deserve to possess anything of worth, since he chases everything in skirts and then imagines he can successfully hide his shame by slandering [women in general]?”
Christine de Pizan, Der Sendbrief vom Liebesgott / The Letter of the God of Love

Alasdair Gray
“She also said the wicked people needed love as much as good people and were much better at it.”
Alasdair Gray, Poor Things

Milan Kundera
“Revolution in Love’. Can you tell me what you mean by that? Do you want free love as against bourgeois marriage, or monogamy as against bourgeois promiscuity?”
Milan Kundera, Life is Elsewhere

Ayn Rand
“And that is why I consider promiscuity immoral. Not because sex is evil, but because sex is too good and too important... What sex should involve is a very serious relationship. Whether that relationship should or should not become a marriage is a question which depends on the circumstances and the context of the two persons' lives. I consider marriage a very important institution, but it is important when and if two people have found the person with whom they wish to spend the rest of their lives -- a question of which no man or woman can be automatically certain. When one is certain that one's choice is final, then marriage is, of course, a desirable state. But this does not mean that any relationship based on less than total certainty is improper. I think the question of an affair or a marriage depends on the knowledge and the position of the two persons involved and should be left up to them. Either is moral, provided only that both parties take the relationship seriously and that it is based on values.”
Ayn Rand

Elvis Costello
“Oh, I know that she's disgusted,
cause she's feeling so abused.
She gets tired of the lust,
but it's so hard to refuse.”
Elvis Costello

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“There is a correlation between the number of days since a man last had sex, and, the number of things that he is willing to do for a woman.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

C. JoyBell C.
“I'm not an advocate of promiscuity; but then I'm also not an advocate of being virginal. It's not like I put virginity or celibacy on a pedestal, and as long as I don't get your promiscuity rubbed into my face— I don't care about it! What I do care about is the ability to recognize the sanctity of a union of two souls— you just can't say your soul isn't being united with others' when you have sex with them. So I think you'd better own up to what you're doing— no matter how frequently or infrequently or with how many different people you do it. I mean, make good choices! You are, after all, entwining your soul with another's.”
C. JoyBell C.

Abhijit Naskar
“Cheating in relationship is a sign of self-regulation failure. When it happens ones, it is a mistake. When it happens twice, it is unfortunate. But when it happens thrice or more, it is a pattern indicating primitive, uncivilized inhuman behavior.”
Abhijit Naskar, Wise Mating: A Treatise on Monogamy

Abhijit Naskar
“Monogamy is not a choice, it is a responsibility of a genuine human.”
Abhijit Naskar, Wise Mating: A Treatise on Monogamy

William Inge
“I been talkin' with my buddy, and he thinks I'm virgin enough fer the two of us.”
William Inge, Bus Stop

Abhijit Naskar
“Either one is promiscuous or in a relationship - it cannot be both at the same time.”
Abhijit Naskar, Wise Mating: A Treatise on Monogamy

Abhijit Naskar
“Polygamy is about sex, whereas monogamy is about love.”
Abhijit Naskar, Wise Mating: A Treatise on Monogamy

James C. Dobson
“Thus, we knew at the onset of the sexual revolution back in 1968 that this day of disease and promiscuity would come. It is here, and what we do with our situation will determine how much we and our children will suffer in the future. God created the moral basis for the universe before He made the heavens and the earth. His concept of right and wrong was not an afterthought that came along with the Ten Commandments. No, it was an expression of God’s divine nature and was in force before “the beginning.”
James C. Dobson, Life on the Edge: The Next Generation's Guide to a Meaningful Future

Abhijit Naskar
“Promoting promiscuity in this evolved and civilized society is actually like signing the Declaration, that says:
“I hereby renounce my membership of humankind, since I am neither human nor kind. I declare that I no longer belong to the modern human species, i.e. the Homo sapiens. From now on I shall be counted among the swingers of the animal kingdom, such as the bonobo or montane vole. I am simply an arrogant philandering savage.”
Abhijit Naskar, Wise Mating: A Treatise on Monogamy

Abhijit Naskar
“Philanderers and swingers can see nothing beyond the needs of their genitals. Sexual craving is a part of our biology, but it is not who we are.”
Abhijit Naskar, Wise Mating: A Treatise on Monogamy

Abhijit Naskar
“Polygamy is a luxury of the cave-people, and monogamy is an existential responsibility of the civilized society.”
Abhijit Naskar, Wise Mating: A Treatise on Monogamy

Kris Kidd
“And then he's somewhere inside of me, each thrust rattling my ribcage like a bottle of pills. I'm somewhere outside of myself, thinking about lust— about my slutty white sheets and all the men who like to hide in them.”
Kris Kidd

Kris Kidd
“Two sad eyes and one skanky smile, I practically pulse with the promise of promiscuity. I'm easy to catch, but too slippery to hold onto. Men love a challenge if the prize is guaranteed. I know how to start a fight while deepthroating a white flag.”
Kris Kidd

Kris Kidd
“I’ve always wanted to be the sort of boy who does the right thing without having to think about it first, the kind of boy who makes his bed every morning and wears his mouth like a vase for words of kindness and simplicity. My agents keep telling me I’m too bruised to play the part. They have no idea how hard it is to make my bed when I’m constantly sleeping in yours, how difficult it is to keep my body from bruising when I’m almost always on my knees, making room in my vase for you, and watching while you text all the boys who are up for the role.”
Kris Kidd, Return to Sender

Kris Kidd
“And then he’s somewhere inside of me, each thrust rattling my ribcage like a bottle of pills. I’m somewhere outside of myself, thinking about lust— about my slutty white sheets and all the men who like to hide in them.”
Kris Kidd, Split Lips: Stories About Love & Sex

Kris Kidd
“Under the influence, I am easily influenced. I try to keep my pants on, but some things are easier said than done.”
Kris Kidd, Down for Whatever

“Seneca, the Roman moralist, called unchastity "the greatest evil of our time". In light of this pronounced deterioration of marriage, countless Roman women engaged in adulterous sex, and when they became pregnant, they destroyed the evidence of their sexual indiscretions, thus adding to Rome's widespread abortions.”
Alvin J. Schmidt, How Christianity Changed the World
