Excerpt from Married, with Infidelities highlighting sex columnist Dan Savage’s views on monogamy:

From Becky Knight’s blog Living Sexuality http://www.livingsexuality.com/category/blog/

“The mistake that straight people made,” Savage told me, “was imposing the monogamous expectation on men. Men were never expected to be monogamous. Men had concubines, mistresses and access to prostitutes, until everybody decided marriage had to be egalitar­ian and fairsey.” In the feminist revolution, rather than extending to women “the same latitude and license and pressure-release valve that men had always enjoyed,” we extended to men the confines women had always endured. “And it’s been a disaster for marriage.”

I think this is very well said.
