theorellior: busy chillin': No man wants 50 kids, but they want 50 partners."

A man would be fine with 50 kids, if he didn't have to take care of them.


At some point though he'd have to keep track of all of his kids otherwise he could inadvertently end up lusting after one of his daughters.    Obviously, there are some guys for whom that wouldn't be a problem, but hopefully they are exceptions.

Mohammed bin Laden, father of Osama,  produced 54 children with 22 different wives.  He never had more than 4 wives, and would divorce older ones and replace them with younger wives.

"Testosterone decreases as you age (and is largely responsible for your libido). Whether this is an affected cellular response to "protect" the species from older individuals who may have gametes with mutated nucleotides or are simply your cell's inability to function as robustly in the absence of many of the growth factors of youth, you decide."

Testosterone decreases as you age proportionally to the availability of women that stimulate you. In other words, once you can't get the good looking younger ones anymore, you naturally don't care anymore. I barely look twice any any women over 40. they're just not on my radar. Wish I was like that 70 something looking guy I saw in LV at Ceasars that time with that Blonde, Mini-Dress, Heels, Mid-20's, that is to say, Rich!  Then you can still have whatever you want.

You sir are technically correct.

I've got two kids as of last month. I don't know if it's the exhaustion, the satisfied biological imperative, or just getting older, but I think my libido is starting to relax its deathgrip on my brain.

WRT having kids in a bad world, if you don't procreate and raise kids to counteract the idiots, the idiots will run human civilization into the ground. So I reproduce for the sake of humanity.

Fafai: busy chillin': As some farker said before "All this talk about spreading your seed into as many women as possible, but everyone of you pulls out and/or uses condoms. No man wants 50 kids, but they want 50 partners."

But they instinctively don't want to pull out and wish they didn't have to wear a condom. It's the cognitive part of the brain that does this because we can reason. That doesn't mean there's no biological impulse at all. We override that, but it's there.


yeah, there is definitely a biological impulse, I just thought it was an interesting observation.

Were you peeking in my bedroom window this morning?

/love morning sex

I recall a study that said, for dudes, 7am and 10pm.

That would explain my raging boners every morning.

The study went into hormone levels and stuff.  But I have to wonder if there also isn't one of those correlation/causation thingies.

I go to bed hoping to dream about sex.  And I wake up having dreamt about sex.

Hey man, I just came to crack jokes ;-)

Cracking jokes when you come, huh? I guess it's a coping mechanism.

Was he a billionaire? 2 kids is enough for me, I can't afford three. But maybe, just maybe if i was a billionaire that wouldn't be an issue. And most guys couldn't even come close to getting away with that. There are always outliers.

I find sex is often a Catch-22 in a lot of ways. Biggest example being that it results in kids, and kids destroy sex. So, don't have kids if you want lots of sex. Best way to ensure not having kids? Don't have any sex at all. Gah!

Unfortunately, bad breath and the need to evacuate bowels and bladders and take a shower tends to kill the mood first thing in the morning. After shower sex is a far more successful proposition.

It means you are already married w/ children.

If you drive a minivan when you're not married and don't have kids, it's not that you're shooting blacks, it means you can't get it up

I'd guess around 40 just like women. That's when sperm mutations start creeping up and increasing the likelihood of birth defects. Also sperm motility is down, decreasing the likelihood of even having babies, defective or otherwise.

Right.  ANd I have to agree that showing off with an expensive automobile is -- expensive. Driving a 10 year old truck myself.

My next purchase I'm thinking about getting a classic mustang with a new, more efficient, engine. With good care and moderate driving I don't think it would depreciate.
