The anon female is so right.

"Getting laid means you lose your reasoning abilities and your standards and values become less than dirt."

So you are calling many, perhaps most of the people on this board dirt. What makes you think that you are so perfect?

"I love myself too much to fall prey to such an 'arrangement'."

I don't think that anyone would question that you are in love with yourself. That is so obvious in most of your answers.

And what is with the snotty, I am so great, avitar? It gave my wife quite a laugh.

I would simply use the term "lover".

Fade878: you really should get off your high horse and accept the FACT that this could happen to you too. Enough with the "I am so much better than all you cheaters"-crap that you continuously spread around. Grow up.

Or, perhaps you have something to hide and need to convince yourself of your unmistakable morals more than others...

A male reader, anonymous, writes (24 November 2008):

When a man is on the side, it's considered that he's getting lucky because they usually value the sex. Whereas mistress denotes this in a negative manner because most women don't consider themselves lucky but unfortunate, hence the reason why there really isn't a word to describe the male version - and if there is, then it would explain why it's obscure.
