An email address is a form of contact info, like a mailing address or phone number.
It is unwise to give-out your email address because an email box is useful as storage--rather than a cloud--and as an archive of notes, appointments, journals, photos, newsletters, voice messages, and so on. Giving out an email address for personal correspondence is unwise, which is why it is best to avoid seeking pen-pals on message boards or the internet, because an email box can be hacked to steal emails, contacts, and other data that can be used in identity theft, spam, bot-nets, or voyeurism. Phishing schemes to steal email addresses and hack an email box are no different than throwing a rock through a window for breaking-and-entering to steal things from a home.
