I have a fairly liberal viewpoint on sexuality. I remember in one of my philosophy classes, we were given the problem of adult incest, and I had (and have) no moral problem with it. At the same time, my ascetic viewpoint says that at the very least, sex and sexuality should be treated with a large amount of dignity and respect. I guess you could say that I agree with Alan Rickman in Dogma: “Sex is a joke.” The way people treat sex as something so comedic really confuses me.
Now, as to casual sex, as in sex-with-no-strings-attached, I feel that it’s not as easy as some might think. Communes in the 60s and 70s often had a free love policy. They had the policy that there were no “relationships” and boasted of how this improved things, but this was a major reason many communes fell apart. Jealousy and desire for intimacy are natural parts of the human psyche. And this is all coming from a guy who thinks that marriage is also a joke.
