Is promiscuity immoral?

Do you think it’s immoral for someone to have sex with multiple different people if they are unmarried and everyone is doing it willingly and legal adults?

What is your view on this matter?

    No, it is not immoral. It is ill-advised.

    To consume in the just measure is healthy choice walking the path of Harmonization . Intense love ? Profound peace ? Infinite gladness ?

    The bible tells us it is, but most of us do it, anyway.

    I do not.

    I believe there is a range of morality. What two consenting adults do with their bodies is their business only.

    What you do that affects other people is more important from the point of view of morality.

    That's why running a red light, stealing public or private funds when entrusted to you, knowingly selling shoddy products or services, even smoking in public is far more immoral than having sex with many different people.

    All those things harm others, many of them have had their trust betrayed or are actually physically harmed by the behavior.

    forcing lack of it on others while being promiscuous yourself is what's immoral

    Unfortunately, being sexually promiscuous is no longer shocking. It’s accepted as normal. Actually it’s a dangerous situation many persons put themselves into. There are many health risk involved, sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancies, not to mention the loss of one’s own self respect.

    I worked for years in an HIV/AIDS Infectious Disease clinic and saw the results first hand, not only for those who were being promiscuous but for many innocent people who had sexual contact with them. Again, it’s a dangerous game to play. Being adult means being morally responsible.

    It can be. If morality is about causing the least harm to people or oneself where emotional harm counts as well, then there are many ways promiscuity can be immoral. One way is having unprotected sex that spread diseases and produce unwanted pregnancies. Another can be having sex with someone who wants a real relationship and not just a sexual one. I've also seen people who regretted sleeping with someone and thought less of themselves for doing it. Then there are people with sexual addictions that do it for the high followed by the emptiness and disgust afterwards. A person who has many sex partners also devalues the intimacy aspect, sort of like that person who always says "I love you" automatically and robotically, where to hear it from that person loses its value. However, to answer your question, promiscuity itself doesn't have to be immoral or moral if caution is taken. It is understandable that people can be attracted to more than one person sexually and the primary reason for monogamy is protection of others emotions because even if a couple wouldn't mind sex with people outside the relationship, many would get jealous of their partner doing the same.

    Yes. How this high price for promiscuity argues for the wisdom of the Bible’s counsel to exercise self-control and ‘abstain from fornication’! Though girls and women pay a physical price, the Scriptures warn that boys and men also should ‘abstain from fornication’ so as not to “go to the point of harming and encroach upon the rights” of another, because “Jehovah is one who exacts punishment for all these things.”​

    Rather than prohibit sexual pleasure, the Bible shows that it is a gift from God to married people. He created humans “male and female” and viewed what he had made as being “very good.” (Genesis 1:​27, 31) When he brought the first man and woman together in marriage, he said that “they must become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:​24) This bond included the pleasure of sexual intimacy along with a close emotional connection.

    The Bible describes the pleasure that husbands find in marriage with these words: “Rejoice with the wife of your youth . . . Let her own breasts intoxicate you at all times. With her love may you be in an ecstasy constantly.” (Proverbs 5:​18, 19) God also intends for wives to enjoy sex. The Bible says: “Husbands and wives should satisfy each other’s sexual needs.”​—1 Corinthians 7:3, God’s Word Bible.

    Limits on sexual pleasure

    God reserves sexual relations for marriage mates only, as Hebrews 13:4 shows: “Let marriage be honorable among all, and the marriage bed be without defilement, for God will judge fornicators and adulterers.” Married couples must be faithful and maintain their commitment to each other . They find the greatest delight, not by pursuing selfish gratification, but by applying the Bible principle: “There is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.”​—Acts 20:35.
