So I discovered the distraction that is bad_sex the other day, and I’ve been wasting way too much time being entertained by other people’s embarrassments. But I noticed a certain kind of story showing up repeatedly, which reminded me of something I’ve noted before.
Often I’ll read some girl complaining that she was horny and slipped on some sexy lingerie and was all set to fuck her boyfriend/husband/fuckbuddy’s brains out – and he blew her off for video games or RPGing. This usually ellicits all kinds of commiseration from her friends – including male friends – talking about how he’s a fool for passing up such a golden opportunity.
I cannot be sure, but I suspect that if I were to write, complaining that I slipped on my sexiest pair of boxers and rubbed “Oueue de Rutting Billy Goat” on my chest but my wife STILL wouldn’t put out, I would be met with a less understanding response. After all, a girl can’t be in the mood ALL the time, and a sensitive man understands this.
I submit to you that there is a double standard here. It seems to me that we men are often chastised for “always thinking about one thing” – except for the rare occasion when we are taken to task for not making that “one thing” our foremost priority.
