I don't necessarily disagree that many young men I know have "certain attitudes" toward women and sex. That said, what actually leads men to thinking this way? And why do women allegedly not? And how does this necessarily pertain to prostitution?

A combination of the subtle (and usually not even deliberate) comments that boys hear from adults around them from a young age, the much more explicit things that their start hearing in their (usually all-male) circles of friends around puberty, and the subtle but very deliberate cues that they get from the media (especially TV ads). All go into the direction of presenting sex with women as a commodity that men can get if they fulfill the right criteria (in terms of attractiveness, assertiveness, wealth, or you name it). If men don't have sex, they're either not "real" men or have failed by these arbitrary standards. At best, they're deserving of pity and support, to the point of (as the post I was responding to in the original thread suggested) designing public policy around their "needs". And of course, women aren't supposed to have any agency in the process.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

You know, despite what our contemporary postmodern aesthetics may indicate, sometimes the most obvious answer is, indeed, the correct one, as William of Ockham would know.

By stating this though, I do not wish to deny that humanity contains multitudes. Just that it is what it is.

Sex is inherently more dangerous for women than it is for men.  Women are often physically smaller and weaker then their male partners, are at a higher risk of being assaulted by a sexual partner, and have the worry of pregnancy to consider.

Sex requires a lot more trust on the women's part than it does the the man's, so to me it makes perfect sense that women would be less comfortable engaging in sex with complete strangers.

It's hard to explain all the sexual behavior according to the biology. Men like oral sex and anal sex, even though oral sex and anal sex don't produce babies. Maybe because the mouth and the anus are warm and humid like the vagina.

Chimpanzees don't have oral sex and anal sex

Probably. With oral sex and anal sex (and well as masturbation and pornography), the male body "thinks" the behavior is vaginal intercourse and can produce babies.
