I fully agree, but I didn't interpret this situation as him changing part way into the relationship...

Why specify promiscuity if you're not already interested in some kind of non-monogamous sex? It would be a moot point. Thus, it sounds like he's always wanted the option of other women, but he assured her that it wouldn't be promiscuous.

This doesn't sound like something you just come up with one day. If you're saying what's natural and not natural, it sounds (to me) more like a lifelong philosophy.
As I am sure any cat owner will be able to tell you,
someone else putting you in a box is entirely different
