Yeah, but "being insanely rich and having a gigantic schlong" tops all.

That article was a big stinky pile of dung.

1) "Our sexual desires are fixed from some sexual experience we have at the age of 3 or 4." WTF?

2) "Men are more focussed on orgasms because of social pressure." Bullshiat. Male and female anatomy is different. Men have a physiological need to masturbate unlike women. Women can go years without sexual desire. Besides, men chasing after women rather than the other way around is something common to all cultures as far as I can see. It seems unlikely to blame this one on culture, then.

3) "Women enjoy sex more than men." Again, I call bullshiat. If for no other reason, women are much more likely to feel guilty about having sex. I'd rather have slightly less enjoyment and no guilt than slightly more enjoyment and tons of guilt.

From the article:
Studies routinely rank American culture as one of the most sexually repressed in the world thanks to its forbidding Judeo-Christian origins, high incidence of sexual problems and dysfunction, and lingering tight-lipped discomfort with the very topic of sex.

Worse still, sexual repression causes violence.

Now does the United States' fascination with (and indeed, favor of) violence over sex finally make sense?

1. Be rich and famous
2. Be famous
3. Be rich
4. Have a nice personality
5. Keep masturbating, you ain't getting anything this far down the list, not even the fat drunk girl who's been puking in her purse

For most men, of course, sex is all about orgasms: it's culturally imbued in them to desire sex, and they possess a superb feedback device for letting them know when they're in the mood.

Ignorance marches onwards.

This is the stereotype crappola that makes women focus on trying to get men to climax as soon as possible, and turns them into frustrated, raw rubbing, jack-machines without a clue.

blackminded: That's a more succinct way of putting it, sure.

Why is it that there are only negative names from women who sleep with many people, but only positive names for men who sleep with many people?

I think the point is more that our society is demeaning toward women.

I see it on Fark all the time... since it's mostly males, they all treat women like objects, talk about how much they want to fark them, and also love to bash women as demonic, money-grubbing whores.

Duct tape is an aphrodisiac for men... when applied to a womans mouth.
For women... hmm, anything that illicists emotional, psychological, or physical pain from a man seams to be a turn on. So, I guess if you bend over and get those oysters shoved up your ass by sledge hammer handle, they might turn a woman on.

Some Farker once made the point that for men, it is an accomplishment, requiring actual effort, while for women, it merely means that she says 'yes'.

If this were true (which it is not), then this would imply that the reason that there are so many derogatory names for women is because they have sexual power over the men.

We all know, of course, that most of human society is terribly patriarchal and has been that way for thousands of years. Women were not always able to resist a male or have the freedom to determine who could have sex with them and when.

Men complaining about women is analogous to Christians in the United States claiming to be persecuted.

Strawman,
I think you would call both a man and a woman who slept with others for material gain a whore, prostitute, or toy. What positive names for man-whore am I missing?

Wow, your name is appropriate. (I bet you get that a lot)

Anyway, this isn't about women who get a lot of cock being called "whores", it is actually about having to buy them off... so it is about the litteral sense in this case.

Regarding A Strawman

So what do you call a woman who has opportunistic sex?
- a whore

..and what do you call a man who has opportunistic sex?
- normal

Ah the lovely double standards that we still have in society.

I don't think I ever understood this term "objectify". We all abstract and simplify. I don't see why it's suddenly dirty when it comes to sex. Women find certain traits attractive, and so do men. I don't see that picking out those traits from unimportant ones, such as how often a person flosses, is "objectifying".

It's called a "double standard". You see them everywhere, like in court, where women generally recieve lighter sentances, at clubs, where women genrally get in free, and in your local universities science departments, where women are admitted according to quotas.

Aphrodisiacs for married fathers:
-finish her housecleaning
-pay for her new car
-watch the kids for three hours on Saturday morning
-come home with a bag containing her favorite ice cream and/or cookies
-let her pick the movie this weekend, again

Let's face it, dads--all that stuff about backrubs and her favorite fragrance is for people who actually have time on their hands.

Women. Please. Do not read MSNBC for any advice on men. Don't read anything written by another woman about pleasing a man, for that matter. It's a very simple formula:

1. Show up
2. Feed him
3. Fark him
4. Leave him alone once in a while

There. Your research is done, comenserate with the propagating.

Money doesn't get guys laid. Believe me if it did I'd have gotten laid more than say, once every time the Cubs win the series. Women want money but it ain't gonna get them into bed. They think they just deserve it for having a vagina and blessing you with their presence.

Wow, your name is appropriate. (I bet you get that a lot)

Surprisingly, no one has mentioned up until this point. Maybe because everything I say is true?

Anyway, this isn't about women who get a lot of cock being called "whores", it is actually about having to buy them off... so it is about the litteral sense in this case.

Because women never buy men off or initiate sex? Because there are no such thing as opportunistic men?

/not to say you don't have a general point... it is just off-topic.

It's not off-topic. Why don't you tell that to those two asshats who insulted women in the first place?

Women can go years without sexual desire.

Women can perhaps go for years without sexual desire towards *you*, perhaps. This does not mean they would have no desire at all should someone else come along.

Men. Please. Do not read MSNBC for any advice on men. Don't read anything written by another man about pleasing a woman, for that matter. It's a very simple formula:

1. negative variable q times the hypotenuse of a parallelogram, divided by the exponent of variable a times the quadratic equation of x squared plus 11.
2. ????
3. Profit.

Guys posting to fark != most of human society. In today's anglophone societies, women have the sexual power. This comes from laws that are egalitarian over physiologies that are not. Men desire sex more than women. It's been a constant throughout history and various cultures. It's then simple economics. Men want what women have more than women want what men have. Thus women are propositioned much more often and have many more options regarding mates. Men have to "earn" their relationships, generally, and women can get away with just choosing them. This puts power over sex squarely in the hands of women.
 
2005-11-13 05:24:50 PM
Ah hell, I forgot something. You have to add in the cosign of 12 and multiply by the outcome of your division of the SQUARE root of a hypotenuse of a parallelogram. I'm sorry, guys.

I have a feeling that "normal"-looking women don't get into clubs for free or get lighter sentences. This is because there is also a concern for beauty in America, and unfortunately we let a small group of elite dictate the standard of beauty to us. Most Farkers fall for it, too -- not surprisingly.

As far as quotas go, they're made to help even out the gulf between men and women in traditionally male-dominated professions and to reduce the amount of white male privilege that exists. Remember: men have been (and still are) privileged over women. Men more likely to be admitted to a job, and are more likely to receive high pay.

i wasn't saying the message of the list was "women are whores" because of the # of people they sleep with but because they sleep with them for money. huge difference.
