Kelton also believes celebrity behavior has lowered standards for infidelity and promiscuousness. “It’s a train wreck mentality. The naked Lindsay Lohan Playboy spread is breaking records—like it doesn’t matter anymore,” she said. “The tabloids are filled with it. It makes you wonder if we are hardwired for these standards or if they are dictated by culture. Things have really changed since the days of Ozzie and Harriet. I believe technology has changed our conversation about cheating and promiscuity.” She points out that promiscuous behaviors were happening decades ago, but the Internet wasn’t around to make the news—and pictures—available to anyone, anywhere. “Imagine what would have happened when Marilyn Monroe’s affair with the president was exposed, if they’d had the Internet,” she said.
People have different ideas of what is cheating in relationships or promiscuous, Kelton is quick to point out. However, the Bad Online Dates survey and infographic support the idea that the shift has taken place in large segments of the population. “Watching the sloppy drunken cast make-out on Jersey Shore makes me wonder what kind of sexual examples are being set for that generation,” she laughs, “But an increasing number of people think getting drunk and making-out with a complete stranger at a nightclub while extremely intoxicated is normal.”
