Such "study" results have nothing to do with the casual recreational sex in and of itself, but rather the mental indoctrination people grow up with, from childhood, society telling them things like that are wrong or that there a 'bad girl' for doing it and that sort of garbage. If we could raise kids was a normal natural healthy knowledge and appreciation of sex from the very beginning, instead of all the taboos, we would have a generally more mentally healthy population. Also more physically healthy since people would be much more free to relieve stress through sex – one of the best and biggest stress relievers there is!

Naive. In Denmark and Norway they have this "accepting" attitude towards sex. The result: promiscuity, high STDs (although lower than in the US due to higher IQ and education of average populace), higher suicide rate and depression etc.

True, there is no social stigma for women who engage in recreational sex and have, say, by their 30-32 year 300 or 400 different sex partners. But, they are not a marriage material, and depression arrives in their 30s-40s ...
