Reminds me of people who are agnostic and atheist preaching their way as the one way to preachers. Serious irony. I think people would find themselves in a much better place if they realized there is no "one way"...

I'm just talking biology. Penis size and shape, female orgasmic vocalizing, "hidden" ovulation, size of bodies, current traditional foraging societies' sexual and parental practices, etc etc. The idea of NOT sharing food and bodies was considered rude and immoral.

Monogamy is "new" and imposed by agricultural hoarding and the idea of ownership, which didn't exist for 95% of human existence. Try not to take it personally, gentlemen...
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
