Re: Sex & the gender gap

i believe all people are created equal and equally capable.

i also believe both genders are equally capable of being horndogs. i just can't find a woman who wants to be a horndog with me.

mind you, lack of fucking money don't help...

Money helps, but you don't really need it to bang a lot of girls. It's a state of mind, not a state of possessions.

Bicycle. And order tap water. There are no limits except those which you set yourself.

Not to disagree with you, but what do you call the women who constantly harp on how we men are holding them back simply because they're women? I've met one or two women over the years who do this and don't seem to know the difference either.
"Pains in the ass." Same with the ones who think sexuality is sexism.

I agree with everything you said, except the feminist bit. Remember, feminism is about equality for women, and nothing else. Crazy militant man-haters are decidedly not feminists.
Except, I stated that I wasn't bothered by the inequality, that was only secondarily related to my gripe. I was bothered by the lousy music.

I'm pro equality, but I barely give a crap since it doesn't directly relate to me. Getting Lady Gaga off the air would directly improve the quality of my life (albeit a little bit), so I do give a crap. Is that myopic? Probably, but I have a finite amount of crap to spread around, so like a broke farmer I'm gonna be strategic. Be happy that our interests converge on this subject and have a good day.

Re: Sex & the gender gap

When it comes to sex, guys are more easily enticed by it because they are visual creatures and any good looking chick will give them a boner. Hell, even if she is a butterface, some guys will still get a footlong.


Guys think with the head between their legs while women think with the head that consists of a brain.

i think that all women are interested in sex but there is a limit in some cases.

I would prefer to meet a man get to know them than race into the bedroom and do it.
Some men you meet can be nice to a extent then turn if they are not getting it.
i also think you should stay away from sex for a couple of monthes and get to know the man and then decide

Women want to be treated with repect too
I know there are women out there who will have one night stands but not in the case of all women.

YES. I'm the same! :)
Ofcourse girls are interested sex too, but it differs from person to person.....

I hate guys who try to have sex with you on like the first date, and keep pushing you when you say no... However, one of my male friends has had the same experiance, where he wasn't ready but his girlfriend kept pushing him to have sex..

I've heard that guys are more gentically driven to spread their 'seed' to as many women as possible, so their genes have more chance of surviving, while women are more inclined to look for men who will be able to provide for and protect their children. Ofcourse that's being VERY general. But maybe it could explain why guys have more interest in sex generally than girls? (if they do) though ofcourse as many people have said before, individual differences are very great... Some of my female friends are exactly like the stereotypical male when it comes to sex.

Maybe also the fact that it's more culturally acceptable for men to be promiscious than women could be a reason why it may appear that women have less interest in sex than men.

I had that problem as well. Lost a girlfriend over it, in fact.
