Sounds like over half of today's teenagers need to lower their standards.
 
2013-11-17 01:07:39 PM  
Yeah, so? If you took a random group of people your age and lined them up against a wall, I bet you'd think that at least half of them aren't good enough for you.

Honestly, the internet and porn have a lot to do with it. Where as 20 years ago if you wanted to get your rocks off, you either had to get out there and socialize with women and actually work towards getting one, or be lucky enough to have a father with a stash of porn or have a friend or older brother who could get it for you. Now you can see any depraved act imaginable at the click of a button. Although I am married and not in that game anymore, I know how demoralizing rejection can be, and can understand how people might just eventually give up. The problem is that 30% of the men are getting 90% of the women, but why that is I do not know.

Rising income inequality and perversely skewed labor values have priced hookers, strippers and other skanks out of reach of young men.  Even their concerned uncles and godfathers are hard pressed to pony up for the initial "breaking in".

Getting even to second base costs a lot more in flipped burgers than it used to.

Meanwhile the second baseman might make $10 million a season.

Why not?  None of my friends in high school nor I ever so much as grazed a boob.  In college I lived in a hall of 50 academically-strong guys.  As freshmen, virtually all were virgins, and you were in the minority but far from alone if you graduated college as an unintentional virgin.

And these were groups that didn't have many religious cases, either.  Add those in, and it doesn't seem improbable at all.  Also seems lucky that we don't have more shooting sprees.

JERRY: Twenty-five percent, you say? No way! It's like 4 to 6 percent. It's a twenty to one shot.
ELAINE: You're way off.
JERRY: Way off? Have you been to the motor vehicle bureau? It's like a leper colony down there.
ELAINE: So what you are saying is that 90 to 95 percent of the population is undateable?
JERRY: UNDATEABLE!
ELAINE: Then how are all these people getting together?
JERRY: Alcohol.

I can't think of many men under forty who don't seem to be struggling with perpetual adolescence.

That's easy.  It's because the top 30% of men are willing to hook up with 90% of the women.  So 90% of the women have access to the top 30% of men.  Why bother with the less-desirable 70%?  If the tables were turned, would you?

No, I just remember the females when I was in high school and middle school.

Sure, tons of perfectly normal females but when combined with the dynamics of public school, raging hormones, and quite frankly lack of any worldview, they can get pretty insane.

Problem is when that 90% want to settle down, and those 30% have too many options to ever think about doing that.

Thanks dad! It can be hard to convince teenage girls to date older men like me, so thanks for making it easier!

/I keed, I keed

In all seriousness though... the numbers in TFA seem pretty suspicious to me. That seems unrealistically low. Though in TFA they did mention the caveat that they were only talking about penile/vaginal intercourse, and not oral sex which is much more prevalent. So basically, kids are actually still having sex in much greater numbers then they first claimed, just that young folks today are shifting more towards oral sex.

Without that caveat I'd have called total bullshiat on their numbers... with the oral sex caveat I'd say the numbers are more likely, but deceiving, since oral sex is still sex.

I'm not entirely upset that I didn't participate in that.

spman: Honestly, the internet and porn have a lot to do with it. Where as 20 years ago if you wanted to get your rocks off, you either had to get out there and socialize with women and actually work towards getting one, or be lucky enough to have a father with a stash of porn or have a friend or older brother who could get it for you. Now you can see any depraved act imaginable at the click of a button. Although I am married and not in that game anymore, I know how demoralizing rejection can be, and can understand how people might just eventually give up. The problem is that 30% of the men are getting 90% of the women, but why that is I do not know.

TotallyHeadless: Gergesa: spman: The problem is that 30% of the men are getting 90% of the women, but why that is I do not know.

I recall an economist saying there was a particular term for that phenomenon.  I think the economist also said something like boring stable men are overlooked until later in life(mid 30s).  I can't recall all the comparisons made to an actual commerce market but those are the two things I remember.

Pareto principle; though they usually put the skew to 20-80


So the average number of partners for men is like 8 (guessing) but the median is probably 2?  Meaning that 20% are basically Wilt Chamberlain wannabees.

mmagdalene: Kevin72: I blame internet porn for the increasing isolation from real relations and therefore increasing virginity. Awkward porn addicts who can't understand ladies that don't want ejaculation in their faces. 0r who can't understand why shaved pubes makes a dick look retarded and smaller not bigger.

To be fair, dicks do tend to look kind of derpy.

Your point is excellent, though.


Lion porn. Lionesses are attracted to and investigate the fake lions with the biggest manes.

The pubic hair is literally an extension of your magnetic (attraction) field. The opposites attract thing. Get it? His pubes with its pheremones attracted to hers. Shaving pubes only makes a dick more derpy, or for that matter more like a prepubescent pindick, which shouts out even louder "unattractive! Not a man! Do not touch!"

Most of the guys I knew in high school who were getting any action are now paying child support--in a few cases, to multiple mommies.  When I was starting out as an artist, one place I tempted at was the processing center in my state for child-support checks.  Every once in a while, you'd see some schmuck getting his part-time Wal*Mart getting divided up among six women--wow, a whole $1.35 of support per babe.  Yes, 30% of the guys get 90% of the babes (at least the brainless ones), but they're either paying through the nose for child support, or are shiftless bums who are too unemployed or criminal to worry about support payments.

I was an awkward teenager and, in retrospect, my hygiene was deliberately poor because the one thing that scared me shiatless in high school was getting some girl pregnant and ruining my life.  Hell, I really didn't blossom into the awesome stud I am (I keed, I keed) until got my tallywhacker snipped at the age of 24--vasectomies do a wonder with a guy's sex drive...

Those comments, man. Gotta think of the gays!

Interesting about the much steeper decline for males who have had sex. I really have to wonder if there is any real deleterious effect of having so many sexless males out there. Is it really a problem, or is it more of a well-needed correction?

One of those comments mentions that there's less of a stigma around being a virgin, now. Do you think that's true? I'm not so sure about that.

I love these kinds of articles and discussions, btw.

For starters, I always thought that "Wilt" was an ironic name for a guy who supposedly got so many erections.  Did he ever get a vasectomy?  If not, the failure rate of the Pill is like 1%, so that translates into 200 babies he's fathered.  And, of course, I'd bet that many of his *snicker* 20,000 partners probably had the bright idea that getting impregnated by a famous basketball star means very lucrative child-support payments, so he might have fathered a lot more than 200.  BTW, did he ever have a venereal disease?  If so, he'd be a one-man sexual epidemic.  And didn't Magic Johnson have a zillion lovers, even when he was diagnosed with AIDS?

I see they're using the strictest sense of the word virgin. Sorry but having your dick sucked/vagina licked is sex, you're no longer a virgin at that point.

Psycat: Nick Nostril: TotallyHeadless: Gergesa: spman: The problem is that 30% of the men are getting 90% of the women, but why that is I do not know.


It's because the kinds of men that women want in their teens and twenties are different from the kinds of men women want in their 30s. When women are just starting out (in high school and college), they don't want to make any commitments and are more geared towards short-term fun with dominant, high testosterone bad-boy douchebags. They don't mind sharing the douchebags because, well, they can't control what the douchebag does, and if other women throw themselves at the douchebag and he bites, she's just going to have to live with it if she wants to continue hooking up with him.

Once women's biological clocks start ringing around age 30 however, they start to migrate towards the less attractive and pudgy (but now rich and well situated) beta men who will help provide for their future children.  This seems to be The Way Things are Expected to Go now, and if pudgy betas don't like the fact that they have to wait in line for a decade or more and settle for secondhand va-jay-jay in order to get married and build a family, then that's tough. (Of course, if the pudgy betas decide to ignore women their own age and start sugar-daddying college students, you can expect the older women to cry foul and begin a barrage of shaming tactics. All the while failing to see anything wrong with their own profligate and mercenary behavior.)

Or 20% of men are farking 80% of women, and the other 80% of men are left with the 20% of women, or slim pickings.

But there is a subset of men whose only occupation is to try and pick up women.

I went to a diverse high school. Started there in sophomore year. My second week there, a girl showed up with a baby. She had to skip school for a year when she had her baby. She was starting Junior year and wanted to show off her little guy to her schoolmates. The baby was adorable, but it made me realize that I was not ready to deal with birth control, let alone babies. I waited until college and had to make do with an active imagination and embarassingly stupid romance novels.  A number of my friends were pretty much in the same camp. Once college came, with the free birth control from the clinic, Wild Times were had.

So, how are they supposed to develop good judgment - from dating only from the most elite pool of boys?  People need to make some bad choices early in life to learn from them when it matters more.

It can cause problems even with married men.

My husband has access to whatever kind of woman and experience he wants via internet porn. I can't compete with that, not when one day it's tall blondes with fake boobs, the next its pregnant women, the next black women, etc. I get it, guys like variety, but when he's only interested in sex with me once a month or less, it's kind of a bummer.

Luckily I have a few guys I started seeing after years of being miserable and feeling awful about myself.

Turns out it wasn't me after all. ;)

Oh God yes. Humans are holographic beings and as such, husbands are not that different from teen males on one level. He can either go to SLAA and abstain from his addiction, or say Phuket let you get your affairs elsewhere. Difficulty: he has to decide for himself. Undifficulty: once he joins SLAA and from porn,abstains, you are there and ready. Actually you can go to the SLAA meetings with him, its a good environment. In California anyway where therapy is the religion.

Meh. They're free to date (and they do) but they often break up with guys who do stupid stuff before the stupid stuff becomes a real problem and don't make excuses for what the boys do. Like one of them broke up with a guy who couldn't handle her having anyone around her but him and stalked her and then yelled at her for having guy friends. The other broke up with a guy because he was spouting some religious crap during her school's lunch hour and she's an atheist. If staying with stupid people in order to learn from bad choices is a part of growing up then they can skip that shiat.

I can't think of many men under forty who don't seem to be struggling with perpetual adolescence. And by "struggling", I mean opting out of becoming multi-dimensional people with emotional maturity and interests which extend beyond video games and beer and into the larger world outside their living rooms.
