Re: Sex & the gender gap

Women value discretion, too many men have big mouths.

Too many times have I heard from girls "I kinda want to fuck him, but I don't need all his friends knowing everything"

Re: Sex & the gender gap

I'd say I disagree with the OP. Sure, that is the sterotypical view, but in my experience I've known several girs and women who have been very sexual, even more so then most men I know. I think it's just a very individual thing.

My problem has just been to get these girls to be sexual with me Which on a serious not, is probably more my "fault" then anyones else because of my insecurities, past and present.

Hell I know for a fact that there's been at least one girl in my past who where dying to have sex with me, but I declined because I was hung up on a girl who didn't even give me a fleeting thought. Had I been more realistic about that situation, I would surely have had some fun.

Hm. Well, while also a stereotypical truth, and sadly there is some actual truth to it, I can at least that I and most of my friends are not the kinds of guys that would brag about it. Sure we'd say that there was sex, but no real details.

Re: Sex & the gender gap

There are still, even now in the alleged 21st Century, many gender myths that people subscribe to; the sexual appetites of men and women is only one. It ranges from men not asking directions and women being hard-wired for shopping to women not liking The Three Stooges and men not liking poetry. It's crippling to both genders. And the underlying reason that these myths are perpetuated is, as with most things, insecurity. People pick up and adopt these "masculine" or "feminine" behaviors as a substitute for their own identity; and, of course, criticizing the opposite sex for their so-called innate qualities gives them the illusion of superiority that they crave (also makes for easy jokes for lame comedians). Chauvinism is just like any other kind of prejudice.

That may be the funniest thing I've ever read on this board. Do you seriously believe that women don't talk about their sexual experiences with all of their friends, in excruciating detail?

Re: Sex & the gender gap

From what I hear, it was only a decade ago, that women could actually admit to liking sex. Women can even admit to watching porn, now. They say they don't mind if their boyfriend watches it.

I think that a woman could even have two boyfriends at once. Men can. Wasn't there a Christina Aguilera song about it? Wouldn't bother me, as long as she got the hosepipe out, before it was my 'day'.

I long for the day when women can come right out and say it, which I think they can do in the US, ask for a date. Women can do it in the UK, I guess, but if they do, you are going to be a doormat for the rest of your life. That awful pause, when you are supposed to do the 'right thing' and basically tell her what to think, which is supposed to be gentlemanly, as they are all supposed to be chaste. Awful.

No, but it plays into the double standard when it comes to reputations. Did you really not think about that champ?

Huh? Care to explain that in more detail?

That too, please.

I think that Wally probably meant that women don't like the idea that men brag about it to each other, not that they have more discretion themselves.

I'm hoping to start a dialogue that will bridge the gap between men & women in our society.
Now here's a man with ambition.

Men & women have a lot of differences, biologically & socially. But what is it that makes them generally unable to communicate with each other?
Who says they can't? Men are usually more comfortable confiding in women than in other men. Of course, women are usually more comfortable confiding in women too. By any metric one cares to consider, women are the superior social sex; and that's reflected in everything from homelessness to suicide rates. To make an overly broad, sweeping generalisation: masculinity is the problem.
