One of the biggest “discoveries” trumpeted around the Internet in 2009 was the stunning revelation that the human clitoris is actually much, much larger than previously thought – extending far into the body and actually bifurcating into branches and wrapping around the vagina like a pair wings. For reference, the penis was mapped via MRI in The clitoris was treated as a vestigal organ at best. And we, as a culture, continue to be incredibly uncomfortable with the idea of female sexuality or women having sexual agency.
While thousands upon thousands of pages have been written about penile surgery – especially about restoring or enhancing sensation, the majority of medical information regarding the clitoris and clitoral hood consisted of dermatology. To be a woman in the modern world is to be placed at odds with one’s own sexual desires.
It follows, then, that men are naturally not inclined to monogamy because their lizard-brains tell them that they need to spread their cheap sperm far and wide to better maximize their potential for offspring.
But we’ve seen over and over again that, in fact, human sexuality has far less to do with reproduction than evo-psych would have us believe.
We let the narrative control how we see the world and that belief affects everything else.
One of the ongoing complaints I see amongst my readers and in society in general is sex. It’s led men to drink, drugs and dodgy sub-reddits. Today, I’m going to do something that nobody else has done: I’m going to give you the secret to getting ((So many jokes…)). No “free-sample-now-pay-for-the-rest.” No dodgy links. Women – and society – have been taught that sex is a trait; men are satyrs who can barely control themselves while women are tasked with having to guard not only their own virtue but regulate men’s sexuality as well, because Lord knows men can’t, bless their hearts.
Whether it’s a case of chasing after numbers, finding a no-strings-attached hook-up , a lack of nookie in a committed relationship or even just managing to lose one’s virginity, it often seems like sexual fulfillment is something that happens to It’s a constant source of frustration, angst, even self-harm in men. In fact, the dominant narrative for the last two hundred years has been that women are inherently the “purer” sex, the ones who are biologically inclined to monogamy, who are the less lustful of the species.
In fact, until relatively recently, female sexuality was an oxymoron.
The idea that women even wanted sex was a heretical thought. In fact, in the western Classical Age, women’s sexuality was considered to be in many ways superior to men’s.
But I think you’ll agree with me that it’s You want to know the main reason why sex seems so damned difficult to come by unless you’re one of the blessed few who seem to have an intrinsic grasp of social dynamics? Over generations, society has placed barrier after barrier between women and their own sexuality.
More specifically: it’s the way that society has treated and socialized women for literally of years.
The “eggs are cheap” theory falls into a logical fallacy known as of this”.
