"Love and sex are not a competition"...?
Reading this set off alarm bells and gave me a bit of an 'Aha!' moment. Love isn't inherently competitive but I'm pretty sure sex is, or at least contains a strong element of competition. Watch people at a nightclub, read Lyall Watkins' Dark Nature, Dawkins Selfish Gene, or anything on sexuality in natural selection. Surely we do compete for sexual partners?
I think this is very much connected to our cultural history of monogamy and the challenge/threat that the idea of polyamory is perceived as to many people.
Sorry-kind of meandering off topic but this interests me
