murdoch's_weeners: Forgot to add... another big part of why I'm skeptical is because I haven't found this to be true in my own experience. I've dated men, and married one, with a lot of complicated sexual hang-ups. When I get together for girls' nights with friends, we can *all* tell a lot of stories about men we've dated that have been neurotic about sex. But those men certainly don't share this in the public sphere - this is the kind of stuff only their girlfriends tend to know about. Again - I think it's the shaming factor - the harassment from other men.


THIS

Exactly matches my experience too. Actually it seems to me that after the initial hook-up, men are much LESS interested in sex than women are. It seems that for a woman things just get better and better the more sex she has, whereas once he's got laid he has achieved his main objective. So normally women go into this keep-him-interested routine. I assume that women are designed like this because she's unlikely to get pregnant from just a one-night thing, although it isn't conscious. Also possibly really is designed to make some sort of pair bonding happen. However, no matter how much farking does or doesn't happen, in the end it is usually the woman who ends things. My ex first pointed that out to me about 20 years ago - saying that men were the true romantics who end up with broken hearts. Experience has bourne that statement out since.

Also there are a LOT of men around with various neurosis or sexual dysfunctions of one kind or another, never mind the sex drive. I think that was the original point I was answering but it bears repeating. Poor things. So much can go wrong. So much pressure to perform.

I gave up (consciously) on the whole idea of doing anything to keep men interested quite a while ago, and I didn't really want them doing anything on purpose just to keep me interested either (too many bad long term relationships). To my surprise a lot of people seem glad to have the pressure off, and it doesn't affect the length of the relationship or the emotions involved. It DOES however mean a lot less sex. Which goes to show just how much a woman's input affects things.

All this is irrelevant now, I haven't had a relationship at all in a while and I don't expect to find anyone again. I live in the middle of nowhere and I am pretty old. And no, I don't recommend doing what I did. I am not a happy person. It just gave an interesting insight into the dynamics of human sexuality/relationships at the time.

Also, never did buy the thing that men think about sex more than women.

Telos: Fine, do you want to meet up with one of us to have sex in a nice soft bed, with copious candlelight, a couple bottles of really good wine and rose petals scattered over the bedspread?


I thought you'd never ask.

Depends on how long it's been since the last time, really. If it hasn't been 30 minutes, then sure, I'm all about thinking about something else.

Any computer graphical whizzes on here want to do an image morphing program what shows a beautiful women morphing into a less and less attractive woman and see how long it takes guys to click the "wouldn't sleep with her" button?

Krieghund:

That comic's logic is poor.

The girl probably wants sex just as much as the guys. She just doesn't want to do it in a restroom with someone who disgusts her, for the same reason the guys don't want to do it in th back of a pickup truck with the fat lady from that one reality TV show.

They're engineering a situation that does not appeal to the girl so they can overgeneralize her reaction.

Then they'll go home and be lonely while she has a wild night with her boyfriend. That's the part the comic doesn't show.

Eddie Adams from Torrance: murdoch's_weeners: There are lots of *good* men in my life, but I notice they tend to go silent when their less-good counterparts act like assholes about sex and women. I think it's the same reason. Men really seem to shame each other for deviating from this standard. I wonder if it's not so much a biological fact as a social convenience.

That's because they're afraid to speak for fear that you'll find out what they're really thinking and you'll never stop slapping them.

Most of my male friends are polite professionals.. husbands and fathers... mostly in our late 40's. When we're out together, we're pretty much filthy sexist pigs. When we spot a pretty woman, we'll rudely comment that she should be blowing us and making us sammiches. But if she were to walk over to our table everyone would be polite and respectful. It's mostly in jest, but that doesn't mean we don't want her to blow us and make us a sammich.


No, your friends are not polite professionals.

The issue is not that you hide your lewd desires around women. It's that you have them in the first place. You don't actually have respect for these women; you just try to hide your lack of respect.

Men whose minds do not work tha way actually do exist, and I wouldn't be shocked if one or two of your friends disagreed with the group consensus on oral sex and sandwiches. They're pretending around you, not around the women.

Yeah but where/what is Glascow? Without defining it TFA would be correct.

bingethinker: Well, duh. Statements like "men think about sex every six seconds" are unprovable and unscientific.


Obviously. What are we suppose to think about during the other 5 seconds?

I'm convinced my fiancee is capable of only thinking about sex. And occasionally food. He is 30 with the sex drive of a 14 year old. I used to consider myself a horn dog until I met him- I can't keep up.

I think they have a point.

Despite the adage that ' Sex Sells' being so prevalent in the media, not all tv shows, for example, gives the viewer a mindful of sex this and sex that every few seconds.

That article seemed to be an excuse to post a bunch of mildly titillating pictures. See, that man's not interested in sexing that woman--at least not until he finishes reading some love poetry to her. Then he will initiate foreplay for at least an hour, and they will have simultaneous orgasms. That's how a modern man does it.

Psychologist is an idiot. Also I'm finding the older I get, the more preoccupied
with sex I am, although there are some extenuating circumstances.
