Question for you guys?? Respect or sex?

Curious, all articles about men respecting women seem to deal only with those who are looking for long term relationships. What about the person who you only have sex with? How do you maintain respect in that relationship...or is there none? Curious as not everyone is looking for a husband/wife so......how come that's never addressed? If respect is essentially lost every time you sleep with someone outside of a relationship, then we're all selling ourselves short....what do you guys think about that?
Not speaking about myself directly but just curious that whenever reading a relationship article, why is it only focused on that hopeful marriage partner...is all.

The first problem is you reading an article about relationships.

If two friends can be adults and mutually agree to have a no strings relationship, that's fine, the only one who can determine if respect is lost, is the person taking the action. If you feel like you've lost respect for the other person or yourself, and you don't like how that makes you feel, stop don't it, it's just that simple.

Phraser....to your comment though....I understand your point regarding the set of folks who see those who experiment, etc. as "sluts" and what nots...but I don't understand the womanizers or the man haters....the users. You're both in this thing together why not mutually agree to satisfy one another and treat each other with respect afterwards. Why perpetuate the lie and then show your true colors afterwards? Seems unnecessary...

These are insightful comments as I often wonder why the topic is only discussed with regards to long term relationships. I often think though that a woman having casual sex will more often than not feel disrespected given the man won't be as in to her as she'd like.....I think we tend to get more emotional about these things than men and associate more with sex than they do. On top of that we let society dictate to us that the man will usually not respect you because you're simply a sexual object hence the desire to try and make the situation more than what it is once the act is done to ensure that "respect" is kept when in fact the man may indeed "respect" you but not in the way you'd hope.......I don't know. Sex should just be sex, damn. I do think though that because men usually run their mouths afterwards to their friends it doesn't help the situation much especially if you all are around each other. Thoughts?

There are those of us who unfortunately view any sexual interaction as degradation. Those who toss around the word "slut" and the similar, they tend to posses little respect for those who choose to share their body with them. It's people like that who ought to be avoided, who don't deserve your time and interest in the first place. What I mean is, eff 'em, but never literally.

respect has nothing to do with the aspect of the relationship build.
respect is a personality attribute. it either exist in the person, and by that then all or most of the action made by the person would be respectful.
even in a sex only relation.
personally I can't have a sexual relation with someone I don't respect, even if it would of been a one time thing.
pretty sure I confused you here as I myself don't know exactly how to explain thought.
but basically, respect is in everything.
if the person is as such, because if not then the person can be married and still a piece of shit.
