If women greatly outnumber men, he says, social norms against casual sex will weaken. He qualifies this by explaining that no matter how unbalanced the overall sex ratio may become (in either direction), “there will always be specific men and women who are in high demand as romantic partners—think Penélope Cruz and George Clooney.” But even Cruz and Clooney, Frank says, will be affected by changing mores. The likelihood increases “that even a highly sought-after woman will engage in casual sex, even though she would have sufficient market power to defy prevailing norms.” If a woman with the “market power” of a Penélope Cruz is affected by this, what are the rest of us to do?

This is from a very, very long and fascinating article (pg 3) on the decline of marriage and the increase of casual and non-monogamous relationships. It also discusses the changing role of women and the balance of power with men.

it's me,
Thanks. One day I will be technically skilled enough to be able to provide a link myself. Look in the middle of page 3 for the quote I copied about G. I hope it's not too off-topic, but I think the info on changing views on sex and marriage was very interesting and well-written.
