(The Atlantic)   Turns out the female sex drive is stronger than the male sex drive, except for any of the women in close proximity to you - especially if you're married, in which case you might as well read the whole article for all you'll be getting this weekend   (theatlantic.com ) divider line

The DBS: Bacontastesgood: Medic Zero: Just put that guy (') on ignore, he's a troll, who is obviously in an unhappy marriage and wants to make everyone else miserable.

Troll would be if he was bullshiatting.  I think he's a genuine loser at life.  But fundamentally your advice is sound, life is too short for whiners of that magnitude.

Where's the whining in my post? I'm simply stating that you don't have to be unhappy in your marriage if you're willing to work at making it a success. I know a lot of people my age (45)  that are absolutely miserable in their marriages and I don't understand why they don't do anything to fix it other than to complain about how it's their spouse's fault.

Sorry your life sucks so bad. Really. I mean it.


I think you misunderstood the target of those comments.

So show me these middle-aged people who go at it three times a day then.

Life is also too short to listen to delusional people.

TwistedFark: The whole monogamy argument that people put forward about if it's natural, or a construct, or male dominated, or whatever is all bullshiat. Anyone with half an ounce of introspection would understand a couple of fundamental truths.

1) We all want to experience different sexual experiences.
2) We all hate the idea that someone we find sexual appealing would choose to have sex with someone other than ourselves.

#1 is why we cheat, #2 is why we try to be monogamous.

People are intrinsically selfish. Just look at what has happened now that women are earning more money in society - they are starting to cheat just as much as men and it's likely because they feel just as entitled as men do because of economic security to sleep around and go after those varied sexual encounters. Still, at the end of the day, it'd be a RARE woman or man who didn't get all butt hurt when their sexual partner gives them a pass to go and sleep with someone else.

If anything monogamy is likely a construct put in place by human beings (both genders) to avoid the emotional damage of sexual rejection since for our species, sex is tied very closely to emotional well being and sense of self.

Btw, I am not the first person to dream this up or speculate on it. In fact, it's widely accepted that the above IS the reason for monogamy as a social construct. However all the stupid articles we see are just the sensationalist bullshiat that papers love to print because it sells (or gets page views).


I always figured monogamy was in place so you could (in ancient times when it was more easily enforced) figure out which guy was responsible for raising/paying for the children.

I don't think they were talking about you.
