Hello. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. My apologies for the late response.

Nowhere in the text does it state or imply that a woman “need many men to express her true potential.” The issue with your assumption is in the keyword “many.” To some, 2 or 3 partners are many. To others, many may be 5 or 10. The concept of “many” is subjective.

Also, a woman can be in many committed relationships throughout her life. Do not assume that just because a sexually autonomous woman has been with several or one’s definition of “many” men that those relationships were not committed or monogamous. That’s a false narrative.

Lastly, as a woman in her 40s, let me assure you that one man cannot teach you as much as 2, 5, 10, or 15. Each person in a relationship is limited to what they already know and can learn together. It’s like going to school and having only one teacher. Even if he is versed in many subjects, there is a limited depth or viewpoint he can offer.

Again, thank you so much for taking the time to read this article and add to the conversation!
