219. What do you think of this example?
Let's say I want to cheat on my girlfriend. I've decided that, even though I tell her I love her and that she's the only woman for me, I'm going to sleep with at least three other women a week.

My girlfriend is completely devoted to me, even supports me financially, and would be completely destroyed if she discovered my infidelities. But my belief systems tells me that a man must have at least 500 sexual partners before he hits 40, and I'm a good bit off the pace here. So I'm going to sneak off at every opportunity, hook up with whatever woman will have me, and rack up those notches on the bedpost.

Is that still "my body, my choice"? Do you feel you have no right to judge the ethics or morality of how I choose to use my sexual organs in this situation?
