There are many reasons that people choose to have lots of sex, and insecurity is certainly one of those reasons, but there are many, many more.
At this point in my life I feel as if I know enough about the people my age, or rather, the females I would consider possible partners that I can determine if I can trust or not. I honestly don't believe people when they say they're "liberated" as I feel as if they're simply saying that to make themselves sleep better at night. Sure, I could be wrong, but it's just my opinion.
Also, there are MANY reasons people sleep around and I think most of them stem from a bad mental state. I'm no perfect angel, actually I'm FAR FAR from it, but the last thing I need is women I consider a "fixer upper." Call me what you will but going into something new with someone I feel has problems just isn't my cup of tea as I'm not out to "change" anyone and since I don't believe in love at first sight, then going through the trouble with someone I just kinda like isn't for me. I have a long life ahead of me and the last thing I need is a ball-and-chain with emotional baggage.
I'd like to note that my views aren't for everyone and to some I have a really negative attitude towards relationships. My past has proved my theory to be correct so until I find someone to change that, I'm going to be the same.
