3572

Abstract

The article presents an overview of types of acceptable sexual behavior in different cultures at different historical stages, including modern. Unrestricted sexual behavior (promiscuity) in this article is seen as a phenomenon of modern culture, which is caused by a change in the statistical norms of sexual behavior in the direction of increasing the number of partners (normalization of promiscuity), and tends to view promiscuity as a strategy of social choice (Schmitt, 2005; Penke, Asendorpf, 2008; Koninа, Kolmogorov, Sorokova, 2014).
