What my flatmate does provide is an insight into the male psyche – in a way that no one you have sex with ever will. Despite sexual liberation happening before my generation was even born, this view is still kicking about, as articulated by a friend recently: "What do you call a key that opens all locks? What do you call a lock that can be opened by all keys?
I'm also meeting countless visitors of the brothel, taking them on tours, gauging their interest, pulling teeth to figure out exactly what they desire, then negotiating prices.My flatmate, a well educated, well mannered, modern man with three sisters, admitting that men subconsciously categorise women and who sleep with someone after the first date 'that kind of girl' is the tip of the iceberg it seems.I used Facebook to conduct some informal market research and either I need new friends or there needs to be radical culture shift before we can truly consider ourselves sexually liberal – and equal."But the other side of me was concerned about what this means in terms of intimacy and how the dynamics would work." When Leah and Ryan met at a wedding four years ago, they didn’t expect to develop this type of arrangement.Neither of them had had an open relationship before, though it was something that Leah had contemplated.
