And my guess would be 10% tops...and I think I'm going a little high with that percentage...
I don't really think it's any of my business what a young lady does or with whom she does it by the time she reaches college age. Is a long term relationship the ideal situation? Of course it is. Is hooking up a legal, morally neutral, private choice? Of course it is, too.
What I don't understand is why there is an outcry against women who have multiple partners or even just a one time fling on a spring break while men are pretty much clapped on the back and told "Good Job!!!" for doing the exact same thing or, many times, worse. I didn't hear anything from you on this birth control issue that sounded remotely like "Keep it in your pants, jackhole". No, what I heard was "slut slut slut".
That's just not right.
Welcome to the new "way of life" that young people are now considering acceptable...
I don't think its all that new. I remember having a shirt in college that said "Porn Star" on it. I think I still have it, but rarely wear it as it seems awful silly for a 31 year old man to indulge such juvenile humor as a fashion statement. Further, I don't see it so much as a declaration of promiscuity as much as I see it a rebellion against the exact issues I brought to light above.
I am surprised, knowing your sharp wit, that you allowed the tongue in cheek humor to escape you on this one.
