    All the following things could prevented if people believed in free love: fighting over partners, breaking up because someone "cheated" on someone, rapes, inability to find a partner, not knowing if someone is "available", and breaking up because your partner found someone better.

    We're all agreed. But let us not hold our breaths.

    Love is free to give and share, it's only free if the person giving it is offerining it.

    I think you're overestimating the effects of free love

    but no harm in that

    free love is a wonderful thing, makes me think of a john lennon song, actually....

    "Imagine all the people, fucking you and me...."

    think about it...

    I agree with everything you said except rape...

    Rape most times is a control issue, or wanting to do harm to someone.
    It has NOTHING to do with not getting enough love...

    look up sexual victimization...

    i disagree in a way. i had an open unofficial relationship with a girl who was seeing another person. her love, unfortunetally, wasnt free to point that i desired. she was interested in this other person, and i unfortunetally didnt see her often as i desired. i still experianced this fight over a partner even in an uncommited relationship. maybe its just me, but the notion of being in several uncommited relationships, certainly does not extinguish the flames bound to be felt in any relationship, while i do admit that commitment does make things more complicated, which can be very unnecessary at times, i feel that it does have a time and place with a certain person.

    i guess what i hope you get out of this post is that first and foremost, differences in what each partner desires out of the relationship is really what causes problems, not whether you two are both commited to only each other. and secondly, with no offence, it's naive to believe that a notion such as free love (while our definitions may differ) will automatically allieviate human imperfection, i.e. jealousy.

    all im saying is not to put free love on this infaluable pedestal where there are no problems. in fact, as it was with my case, it made things a whole lot more complicated by trying to keep them simple.

    i hope you've gained something and enjoyed my post, i apologize for the naive comment, it was not made with the intent of any personal insult in mind. much love and strength to you in your journey. :)

    You're so right, being cheated on wouldn't hurt half as much if everybody was open to free love, it would be heaven if everybody took a part in it...

    Problem is just about everyone doesn't agree to it; they've had all these pre-established concepts planted in their minds since they where little that make them see promiscuity as a bad dirty thing. They need to stumble, get hurt then get used to it to overcome the possessiveness and jealousy before they can embrace free love and start living the good life - oh yeah!

    In fact, I think that's the only downside, encountering people that don't agree to free love and ending up hurting them... or getting hurt ourselves while we're still learning...

    I've got so much love to give! Why keep it all to one person?

    i feel the same way. i think that communication and mutual understanding is so important not to mention when youre seeing multiple partners. just be open with your partners, tell them how you feel, im sure in this day and age many may not agree :-/, but just be honest and try to keep good communication in general and about your feelings about commitment/free love.

    You hippies and you free love! I chalk it up to the inability to be responsible, commit, be adult and keep a little self control in your lives. NO on free love. Sounds like a political campaign...

    Dogs are free to go up to other dogs and hump them. Humans can't go up to other humans and hump them. It's not only illegal, but frowned upon. Even a male dog can hump another male dog and it's not frowned upon or viewed as being abnormal. Yet if a male human makes a sexual advance upon another male human, in most social arenas, that would be far less appropriate than a human male making a sexual advance upon a human female.

    Dogs can roll onto their back side anywhere they want and expose their genitalia for the whole world to see. Not only is it illegal, but it's also frowned upon by society for a human to expose his/her genitalia for the whole world to see.

    So do dogs have the kind of problems that humans have as described by the author of this thread?

    well, I'd love to have some free love but have never had sex and I'm 38 years old. I have gone to a few escorts but that isn't real sex and I only started doing that about 2 years ago since I realized I would never get any, just too difficult for the average guy. A guy really has to be superman to get noticed and then getting free sex is something that boggles my mind. Anyway, thankfully escorts are not that expensive.
