  •  The story of Abraham is a good illustration (0+ / 0-)

    His sister Sarai becomes his common law wife.

    As they travel together she goes with other men with the consequence that Abraham is welcome where he might otherwise have difficulties being accepted. Abraham uses Sarai's handmaiden as a second wife with whom he sires a child. Sarai is visited by strangers in her tent and then conceives.

    Abrahams brother Lot has a house in Sodom whose daughters he sends out to entertain visitors.

    In Canaan where single men work hard to fell trees, build ships, mine and smelt ores, and were agricultural workers and mercenary soldiers, prostitution seems to have been about as common as it was in the old west where a similarly pragmatic moral compass held sway.
