    Promiscuity attributed to low self esteem. Does that only apply to women or could the same be said for men?

    I personally think it is somewhat different with men. Men who are promiscuous are attempting to overcompensate not for lack of self-esteem necessarily, but for feelings of inadequacy as a man. Generally, most promiscuous men not only sleep around with lots of females, but they also tend to emphasize the fact to others, betraying the fact that they feel the need (for some reason) to convince others that they are using their "manhood" an adequate amount. For some reason, in their mind, sex with lots of females "proves" they are manly rather than lots of intercourse with one woman (which would be the more manly, as it requires work, responsibility, and other ADULT obligations).
