I maintain that achieving utmost sexual satisfaction is the only philosophically sensible value in a person?s life. All other endeavors are subordinate.
I measure the quality of a society primarily by how suitable it is for achieving optimal sexual experience. I would prefer to live in a society, guarded by a strong government, in which the pursuit of optimal sexual experience, followed by a gentle death are recognized as the only sensible values.
Such a society does not yet exist. Instead, my choice is among societies in which religious lunacy and/or anti-sexual traditions are firmly entrenched and shape not only the minds of most people but also the policies of governments.
In such societies, I am limited by social control, and for this reason, I assume that the weaker the social control in such societies, the better for my private agenda to secure, at least for myself, optimal sexual experience with a considerable number of female partners.
Because social control needs material resources to be universally imposed, there is a definite likelihood that in richer societies, social control is more strictly imposed. Accordingly, social control in Brunei is stricter than in Malaysia, and it is stricter in Malaysia than in Indonesia.
In large but poor Third World cities, social control often is less prevalent than even in liberal Western countries. Thus, to avoid social control on sexual conduct, moving to a Third World country can be a sensible, albeit temporary solution.
Social control in democracies can easily evolve from less fortunate majorities being envious of more successful minorities. Sexually less successful men may also be jealous of those who score better. The impulse of the less fortunate is to restrict those who do better. A strong government, committed to preserving the highest degree of personal freedom for all members of a society, must guard against petty jealousies of less fortunate majorities resulting in general restrictions of freedom, especially sexual freedom.
A free press is a special form of social control, and an especially negative one. By reporting on how well some people use their personal freedom to achieve optimal sexual experience, a free press causes jealous majorities. In democratic societies, jealous majorities will likely vote for candidates promising to restrict those for whom life is better. For this reason, a strong government, which is committed to protect the personal freedom of all members of a society, must restrict the freedom of the press. (lo*r)
