Which Form of Promiscuity is the Biggest theat to Torah Judaism?

Five Critical Points,
Rabbi Michael J. Broyde and Rabbi Shlomo Brody
While halacha certainly recognizes the role of sexuality in shaping one's identity and human experience, it definitively limits sexual activity to marriage and encourages such activity within marriage. The Jewish tradition counsels self-sacrifice and restraint to an extent that our secular society deems unreasonable or untenable, even more so on sexual matters. In this context, the threats to the Orthodox way of life are much greater due to the culture of rampant heterosexual promiscuity than to homosexuality.
