When you take away the responsibility required to live in your home city for the long-term you can take substantially higher risks, sometimes even be reckless with minimal consequences.
You wonder why Foreigners and Expats are known to have negative reputations in most countries? Because, they have little attachment to the country they are residing in, they probably don’t have the social networks that they had back home and therefore the shame in committing a negative action is substantially mitigated by these factors.
Social shaming is one of the most effective means to control people and their behaviour. Since the West now lives in an era where previously shamed topics such as single motherhood and sluttery are now celebrated, we are provided with a society of shameless skanks who are proud to be slam pieces for a long line of strange men and happy to declare that their bastard child was the “Best thing that ever happened” to them.
Social constraints are relieved also when individuals go on holidays, being the stranger who nobody really knows is a perfect means to bang a few randoms while your significant other sits at home and misses your touch at home. People respond to incentives and elimination of consequences. When the consequences are unlikely to be encountered the wors, most self-serving behaviour will be unravelled for all to enjoy.
When a skank passing through a city is out and about on a night out, she couldn’t care less about the consequences of her actions, she’s all about that short term gain with no long term outlook. This applies for men too, and gives a sense of what a world without rules and penalties would be like. We crave the freedom and abolishment of consequences but the devilish creatures we are, without them we aren’t much different from wild animals.

[…] the time and effort required can leave us with a lack of time for loved ones or even spare time to pursue more meaningful hobbies and interests. I do think that it’s a phase every man needs to […]

[…] How would they survive if they were taken from the creature comforts of their home city, and dropped into an environment where they didn’t know a word of the local language or a single soul. […]
[…] Was I just a hamster on a wheel? Was I just another millennial trying to get their rush of dopamine? Ultimately, despite wanting to believe otherwise, there’s some level of truth to both of those. I had grown myself professionally and personally a lot over the last few years. But I never once imagined integrating into the society I was living in, fully. I was always a foreigner. […]
