In all reality, shouldn't this be classified as "Free Sex"? Entitling it "free love" is demeaning to the true concept of love as being between 2 beings in a non-sexual manner.

Just saying.

I guess it comes from the usage of sex and love interchangeably. i.e. referring to sex as "making love".

I believe in free thought. If someone wants to get married then let them, if not, let them.
Most of the important things


in the world have been accomplished


by people who have kept on


trying when there seemed to be no hope at all

free "love" = free STDs. I think I'll pass. Like many hippy ideas, its great in concept but terrible in practice.
#12
Certain friends of mine embrace it with aplomb, but I don't think the ethics of it is what they find so attractive.

Meh.

For most, polygamy's (in this sense) just a phase. You grow out of it unless you want to end up on some documentary with Louis Theroux.

Well I'll pass. Good concept, but practiced could turn into disaster as some guy on here said.
#15
Yeah man. I'm down for free anal.


It sounds good on paper, but when practiced in life I think it wouldn't work so well.


Analedit: yeah, what the guy above me said.

I don't think anyone actually read the article.

"While the phrase free love is often associated with promiscuity in the popular imagination, especially in reference to the counterculture of the1960s and 1970s, historically the free-love movement has not advocated multiple sexual partners or short-term sexual relationships. Rather, it has argued that love relations that are freely entered into should not be regulated by law."

And I think you missed the point where 'free love' became a byword for sexual carte blanche.

If you're going to abandon the concept of marriage it's inevitable some are going to leave monogamy behind as well.

This.

I think you're all misunderstanding the concept and blowing it out of proportion. If you own a copy of The Satanic Bible by Anton LaVey, there's a chapter about free love. It explains it really well.

You mine as well ask "How does The Pit feel about the idea/movement of "STDs"."


We all love catching pokémon. I don't think we have much of a problem with catching all STD's.

If we're going by free love being something not tied into law, I wholeheartedly agree. If it's the mindset that you can have sex with anyone you want while you have a partner, no thank you.
