The “Well, duh” brand of science.
“There’s always been a question about which one is the cause and which is the effect. This study provides evidence that poor mental health can lead to casual sex, but also that casual sex leads to additional declines in mental health.”
Age of first sex (what a pedophilic name that is) is a great marker for mental illness later in life, including risk of suicide. Yes, it very much includes abuse victims. Both count as social harm and personal damage.
Sex is an easy, natural high. Self-medication aside, the disturbance in the psyche caused by yet-more unstable chemicals, self-produced or not, would cause a downward spiral. It’s known as a self-destructive behaviour because there is no limit. It’s about dopamine more than serotonin, a close second. They are training their brain for the worst possible mechanisms, making it weaker, more capricious and brittle. These are the rats who would always push the dopamine lever, forsaking any food, until they die. It is an insane behaviour and at minimum, betrays a form of self-loathing which calls their willing consent into question. At least, medication must be regular and in this case it poses other health risks from the fact sexual activity is not (masturbation is lesser stimulus and may even out as a basic relief depending on timing). Many of them are on SSRIs, artificially boosting their body’s endorphins and continue to seek out more. It should be seen as self-harm, like cutting. They cannot appreciate the little things, which compounds the issue, like a hot-sauce addict who calls any food less spicy ‘bland’. Trendy, foreign food would also trigger dopamine release i.e. foodies are self-medicating. If placed on any dietary restriction, however minor, the novelty ‘buzz’ of food would wear off and they’d stop caring about it. Rations would infuriate and they queue for hours for a mediocre but fashionable dish. Fashions become insane because bored, rich people buy them. Fashions are casual because they are lazy and the psychology needs to be comfortable in looser clothing, compared to a minimal symbol of authority like a tie. They begin to loathe the sex they crave, from a feeling of entitlement, that ‘everybody belongs to everybody else’ and rejection becomes rage-inducting to them as narcissists.
There is no such thing as sex addiction because it’s simply more convenient for them than a dopamine drip (this would save the Government money in the long run and prevent their use as vectors of disease, including memetic transmission). However, sex is addictive. It’s a subtle distinction that must be made as they continue to plummet for the sake of a never-ending hunger, that is irrational and divorced from reality (read: psychotic). Unlike actual drugs, they burn out their body’s own production, which often leads them to begin supplementing with drugs to plug the deficit they feel, from party highs to mixing things and harder stuff. Escalation is the addiction and the sex itself is more a behavioural addiction that spirals into other habits, they do a similar thing with alcohol and chili peppers.
The Nazi undercut sported by hipsters is a symbol of victory over the ideology. It is also convenient to care for and less likely to pick up bugs from their indiscretions.
