promiscuity

A loose term for sexual promiscuity-a common pattern of behaviour in which sex is valued for its variety and immediate gratifications rather than as one of the important bases for a long-term relationship. Some psychologists equate promiscuity with social immaturity; others hold it to be unrelated. Promiscuity has always carried penalties of some kind, often in the form of sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhoea, herpes and Chlamydial infections. In an AIDS context, these have become much more significant.
