(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 9

Women are hypergoumuse by nature. They want better than themselves and the established norm. If you make $140,000 a year she will want to fark a guy who makes $150,000. You have a house she wants a mansion. You have a boat she will want a yaught, and so and so on.

Hell look at the results of the survey at ok Cupid. Women stated that 80% of men are of below average attractiveness. That is mathematically impossible yet here we are.

Don't waste your time on them, focus on your career, your goals and your happiness. Women are like buses, there is another on in 10 minutes.

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).

The way I'm reading it is this:

*Women are less likely to consent to sex.
*When they do consent to sex, though, they are more uninhibited and have stronger urges in the actual act.

"Bergner thinks that monogamy is society's way of constraining female sexuality. "

Oh dear, we've stepped outside science and are now into feminist theory that assumes that society evolved in an unnatural way, rather than based on the general desires of many members of the group.

The reason that women are more monogamous than men (and just because women get the hots more doesn't mean they are acting on it) is based on biology. They have 1 womb that can produce approximately 1 child per year. A man can father (potentially) hundreds of children per year.

We have women now who are multimillionaires, but none of them, despite the fact that they can tell society to go fark itself, have a harem of men. They have one partner.

And the reason for society's different standards is this: a man who puts it about is successful, spreading his seed. A woman who puts it about is saying that she isn't too choosy about whose baby she gets in her womb.

Now, things like the pill should change this. Women should be into more recreational sex. But the fact is, we've got 100,000+ years of this being our biology and about 50 years of the pill.

Just what I thought.  Women's expectations are way too high.  Yes, we all want to fark the hottie.  I want a lingerie model, and she wants Thor.  At least I know I won't be getting a lingerie model.  She still thinks she can get Thor.

Bergner thinks that monogamy is society's way of constraining female sexuality. He implies that this constraint is unjust and prudish.

Oh, this guy is slick.

"Baby, you should be empowered, not constrained!  Here, let's go fark other people.  It's liberating!"

What I find funny on online dating sites is how it makes the unattractive women feel so attractive (due to the ratio of men:women on those sites). The sea mammals with 4 kids even have profiles saying they want a tall, rich, athletic, good looking guy. Makes me laugh hard, because a fat ass should not be demanding an athletic guy.

Women may be more sexually omnivorous than men, but that doesn't necessarily mean they're as hungry.

In other words, your wife wants sex. Just not always with you. Sometimes, with the sausage you just snarfed down. Or the babysitter. Or the dog. And the gardener. And, or, probably all of them, but not at the same time. Not like you.
