The spread of sodomy and brothels in the past is gravely exaggerated. Don’t get me wrong, visiting a brothel in those circumstances meant100% syphilis and death in terrible agony. There were few fools wanting to die in terrible agony.
From interpersonal relationships, it is better to remove the paradigm "I will give you a piece of cheese, and you must sell yourself into slavery for this for the rest of your life".
