What an interesting dilemma...

Last evening I was trying to figure out why I don't have too much issue with having sex with someone I like but I'm unwilling to have sex for money. What's really the difference? And then it got me thinking that how sad it is even for someone like me who doesn't buy the religious thing to be so hypocritical about that situation.

All concepts of morality aren't based solely in religion.

Accepted societal norms determine morality
Morality determines accepted societal norms.

It's circular, and it takes a lot of effort to change either, because you have to change both.

Just look at the civil rights movement, or more recently the rise of LGBT awareness and rights.

Uh, my point is, it's not hypocritical, heh

Very good point.
