Economic Perspective on Polyamory
Something that’s just occurring to me is the fact that women outnumber every other gender on earth. They make up the majority of humans by a considerable margin.
What’s striking to me about this statistic is that people still want to practice monoamory, while believing that monoamory is “fair”. That makes no sense.
First, let’s say the vast majority of these women are attracted to men (reasonable enough). Second, let’s assume that the vast majority of humans (of all genders) enjoy and desire sexual and/or romantic intimacy. Third, the vast majority of people desire “fairness” in society where relationships are concerned: one mate only, don’t cheat on your partner, etc.
What you end up with in that model is a hell of a lot of single ladies.
