I don't see why you can't have the best of both worlds -- like I did in the past.
When I was single I was like a kid in a candy store. and why not? I had no BF or other commitment. If another guy wanted sex we had sex. I didn't deceive him, I didn't lie to him or mislead him. We each got what we wanted, what a gay friend used to term "mindless sex." We were big boys and nobody got hurt, no written or unwritten rules were broken, purely a physical experience.
And in those days, especially during out of town weekend trips, I might do 7 or 8 different guys from Friday through Sunday. My having a hotel room was a big plus.
But during all this whoring I would meet guys who were really nice, and we might start dating. Then my sluttiness stopped. Given a choice I'd rather have one steady guy than a stream of guys. That's when my morals come out of storage, with no cheating allowed. And also my logical side deploys, because I'm not about to risk losing a guy I like both emotionally & physically, to take chances on random guys just for the physical part.
And so I sorta viewed the slut aspect like taking test drives in cars I might want to buy, and to keep my skills fresh. But I'm not the kinda guy who buys a new car every year. I tend to hang onto my auto investment, once I've made a choice. And so it is with men, and I can go from slut one day to settled the next. I don't see a contradiction nor a challenge in doing that.
