Good evening all. I have found the boards very interesting as usual. But one thing jumps out at me. I don't think that anyone, or almost anyone, who posts is from my hometown, New York City. Why is that interesting? Being born and raised here, I have always heard through the media that nationwide, people believe that NYers lead uninhibited, adventurous and "amoral" personal lives. NYC=Sin City -- I do not think so. I moved to Tennessee for grad school and lived there for over 5 years. I then moved back home. While I was in Tennessee, I became aware of more adultery, spouse-swapping, and other assorted affairs [with/without the other partner knowing] than I had ever come across in NYC. It was just shocking, especially when the alcohol flowed - people falling over another right in front of their spouses. I am no prude; I had often started relationships with new women while the previous relationship would be fizzling out. But, I have never cheated on my wife. The idea that NYC is Sin City is pure B---Sh-t! At the risk of sounding like a provincial NYer, could it be that in environments with less "going on" that people have more time to develop a more inward-focused need for pleasure/excitement? Anyway, thanks for listening, and I apologize in advance if I pissed anyone off.
