Just how much sex and sexual behaviour of men have been changed is left only to the imagination. The history and purpose of sex radically altered rapidly over time. It has become a weapon and has been weaponised. It is one of the most profitable and emerging industries around the globe. Celebrity sexuality, celebrities and sexuality or the sexuality of celebrities has definitely something to do with our incessant competition for success.
In his book Sex for Sale, Ronald Weitzer writes, “Sex for sale is a lucrative growth industry. In 2006 alone, Americans spent $13.3 billion on X-rated magazines, videos and DVDs, live sex shows, strip clubs, adult cable shows, and commercial telephone sex. There are around 3500 strip clubs in America, and the number has grown over the past two decades. In addition to these indicators of legal commercial sex, an unknown amount is spent on prostitution.
success and sex
Sex has been commercialised, gratified, objectified, liberated, trivialised, trafficked, and made easily accessible to the holders of power, position, fame, name and monetary privileges. The more privileged one is the more accessible it becomes to him. Polygamous and promiscuous behaviour is a long-sought-after desire for celebrities. To the rich, it is something of a ritual that they must perform just to become what they are capable of.
Adultery makes a sense where victims are originally the victims of conscience or socioeconomic disparity. Political leaders, businessmen or industrialists and celebrities often turned into socially benevolent people concealing their adulterous activities behind the curtain of charity.
On the contrary, an underfed man or woman cannot afford to entertain to afford the luxury of sex, for him it’s just a process of procreation, nothing beyond a vanilla love. Sex and sexual pleasure are desired traits of the well-fed fellows. American-Irish novelist and playwright J. P. Donleavy says, “When you don’t have any money, the problem is food. When you have money, it’s sex.”
Lower- and middle-class people, who still believe to have faith in social regulations and in a Creator are bound by the orderly complexity that it proposes to its insiders. Their self-esteem is maligned, respect is denigrated at the slightest foolhardiness, while the privileged can just get away it the worst form of sexual perversion right before the eyes of the regulators of the regulations.
Our language is sexy, food is sexy, garments sexy, drinks sexy, make up sexy, furniture sexy, devices sexy, looks sexy, movement sexy, undergarments sexier; sexy is literature, entertainment, oceans, mountains and the air. It’s like our whole life is revolved around making ourselves sexy.
Sex has become so reckless and uncontrollable, and so become an addiction that the necrophilia and paedophilia have become somewhat of an oft occurrences in modern human society.
All the success, and achievement is directed to sex, a sexy partner, or the novelty of it. Every successful man’s desire is to make himself available to numerous women. Oscar Wild says, “Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power”.
Whatever we are up to, possibly all the social works, benevolence, heroism, tenacity, and ferocity, are directed to the influence. And what better can be than our influence-to-influence women? Women love fame, influence and richness by nature, they don’t care about our sexual integrity as long as men are capable to meet their supplies. The kind of aspiration that attracts the successful men to her bosoms pretty easily.
American actor-comedian Steve Martin says, “I believe that sex is one of the most beautiful, natural, wholesome things that money can buy.” In fact, a well-fed man can think nothing more than buying it. Religious leaders take advantage of their beautiful devotees. Bosses pound the subordinates at the office, seniors bed the juniors at the universities.
Some politicians and self-made business figures sleep unhesitatingly with high-paid society girls or second-rated actresses or models in the high-end hotels in Bangladesh under the administrative protocol. Instead of revealing their vices, the police rather turn blind eyes either for accepting kickbacks or a couldn’t care less attitude.
Sometimes these are the people to deliver motivation on attitudinal changes, give homilies from the religious settings, give generously, and build schools, mosques, churches and temples. They are the people throw orgies with the prettiest women to fulfil their imaginable fantasies.
I think Gabriel García Márquez was right to say, “Sex is the consolation you have when you can’t have love.” People, especially those of a higher social rank, are loveless. Their success deprives them of their natural love from loved ones. When a man realises that the people who are supposed to love him unconditionally are actually after him for something, he ceases to seek it and indulges himself in the recklessness of sex.
Sex has become so desired and women have become so desirable that one finds it hard to contain himself with a sole partner. Sexual novelty and adultery are a common knowledge of conjugal life, where both partners do not hesitate to spice their dull sexual life up by philandering or polyandry.
However, the psychoanalyst and social science and neuroscience see the sexual obsession as a disease, obsessive-compulsive disorder, which needs to be treated like any other form of addiction. Happens as a result of brain changes that take place gradually due to our altered lifestyle.
As the proverb goes, money makes men, we can see just how they can spend and how far can they go to satisfy their fantasies and sexual thirst. The following 27 public figures, men and women, who had had multiple thousands of women, perhaps are the same fellows we or children idealise, someway. They are the people we think we should look up to.
How are you going to judge them? Are the people who condemn them for their sexual life the people who lacked the chance, missed the chance or could not afford the chance? Or simply the carriers of obsessive-compulsive disorder or the disorder of morality? The verdict will certainly vary from man to man, culture to culture.

As John Calvin said, “Men are undoubtedly more in danger from prosperity than from adversity. For when matters go smoothly, they flatter themselves and are intoxicated by their success.” Whether men are intoxicated by success or success is intoxicated by the desire for sex lies in our perception to conclude. But prosperity corrupts the soul.
But some people feel successful being able to sleep with successful figures. Whether adultery by men is to be considered infidelity demands varied definitions by various cultures.
For the People of Amazonia extramarital affairs were coveted equally by men and women. Eskimo people have a lending wife tradition, while the Lozi of Africa does not associate adultery only with intercourse. The Lozi say that if a man accompanies a married woman he is not related to as she walks along a path, or if he gives her a beer or some snuff, he has committed adultery.
When having premarital sex is considered a relational skill in some culture, it is still infidelity to a future husband or wife in some other cultures, which result in sexual suppression, in a culture like ours. Sexual suppression is another facet of sexual perversion.
However, when sexual advantage by the powerful operators of the society, or under the privilege of sexual freedom is considered amoral by Bangladeshi people, some mature and mutual sexual decisions still draw public outcry. As if polygamy, having more wives at the same time, is better than sexual addiction, by definition. Hypocrisy. Should morality and sexuality be independent of each other?
