Cell membrane is made up of Lipid Bilayer which are fluid in nature , means they move continuosly , due to this fluid nature they are selectively permeable to compounds.
Also more fluidity of membrane is dangerous as it will destroy the plasma membrane , hence to regulate the fluid nature of cell membrane 'Sterols' (Cholesterol ) are associated with them.
