Women Have Dropped the Price of Sex

June 13, 2011 | Elizabeth

Mark Regnerus and Jeremy Uecker, sociologists from the University of Texas at Austin, recently released a book called ‘Premarital Sex in America: Meet, Mate and Think About Marrying’.

They found that more women are becoming professionally successful and educated and in turn, finding it harder to find a committed man.

The reason this is all happening? Women have dropped the price of sex.

According to Regnerus and Uecker, women determine the going rate for sex. When it used to be a high rate commodity, men accepted that they weren’t going to get sex from any woman they wanted. Now, young women are throwing themselves at men-unafraid of consequences. One of those consequences is taking men away from women who are taking their time with education and their careers.

One great example is: If a guy can get to the “business” with just one or two dinners with Martha, why would he commit to 20 dates and “maybe” Mary?

Why are women doing this to other women? Why are men giving in so easily? Why is sex a low cost commodity when it’s something that many women still treasure?
