There was a time when having sex with a woman meant
a wedding ring, a courtship or at the very least, dinner.
But those days are quickly coming to an
end as women become more promiscuous.
More than 25 percent of young women are having sex
with men within the first week of dating, while 30
percent of men’s sexual relationships have no romance at all.
Why the societal shift? It’s partly economics
101, the price of sex has dropped. Price depends
on how much one party has to do in order to
entice the other into being sexual.
Although there are women that don’t have sex without
commitment, there are more than enough competitors
who will sleep with a man for a lot less commitment
and little to no dating, allowing men to get a lot
of bang for their buck.
Men want sex more than women do. It’s a fact that sounds sexist and outdated. But it is a fact all the same — one that women used for centuries to keep the price of sex high.
If you liked it back in the day, you really had to put a ring on it. With gender equality, the Pill and the advent of Internet porn, women’s control of the meet market has been butchered. As a result, men are “quicker to have sex in our relationships these days, slower to commitment and just plain pickier.
The issue is partly one of supply and demand, and it begins at US colleges, where 57% of students are women. With such an imbalanced sex ratio, women are using hookups to compete with other women for men’s affections. Once they get out of school, the pool of successful, educated men also is imbalanced, and the bed-hopping continues.
It’s like the housing market. Too many foreclosures in one community, and the price of neighboring homes start to plummet. This is why single women sometimes feel as though sex on the first date is a given: According to the market, it is.
Every sex act is part of a ‘pricing’ of sex for subsequent relationships. If sex has been very easy to get for a particular young man for many years and over the course of multiple relationships, what would eventually prompt him to pay a lot for it in the future — that is, committing to marry?
What can women do to redress the balance? Stop putting out. If women collectively decided to cross their legs, the price of sex would soar and women would regain control of the market. Like a whoopie cartel.
Women in less egalitarian countries do tend to restrict sex as a means of keeping the cost high. This makes sense when women have no access to education and employment. But in the US, it would take a major cultural movement for women to convince each other to say no to nookie.
But let’s be realistic: It’s not going to happen. Women don’t really need men and marriage — economically, socially, and culturally — like they once did.
Is Sex A Commodity
[Pay for It]?
If You Believe in Capitalism
Then Sex Is just Another Commodity
Young, pretty, enslaved to your credit cards?
Waste no time, girls. Buckle up and start monetizing
your erotic capital as a stripper or call girl.
Is sex a commodity
-or a performance?
This comes from Catherine Hakim, a professor at the
London School of Economics and media-savvy sociologist
has carved a niche for herself in what she calls “sexonomics.”
She theorizes that sexual allure is a commodity people
should use for profit and professional advancement just
as they use education or networking skills.
In terms of male successes, she points to predictable
icons such as JFK, Tiger Woods and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
How many women do you want to list? Enough to name one.
A seemingly serious actress with buckets of sex appeal.
She’s profited from her allure. Have you seen the
way Rachel Weisz tosses her luxuriant hair?
Catherine Hakim writes admiringly of Japanese
schoolgirls earning $650 for spending a few hours
entertaining older men, the “student mistresses of
Nigeria,” and the “no money, no honey” bar girls of Jakarta.
From the dawn of time, it has been a sellers’ market
for the erotic entrepreneur. The reason: “male sex deficit,”
writes Hakim. Or to use Bridget Jones’ phrase, from puberty
till death, men spend their lives gagging for it.
Porn, prostitutes, strip clubs, phone sex, assignations,
Thai sex vacations — the poor darlings can’t help themselves.
Hakim believes that females are less sexually driven.
Which is why smart women should use
“it” early and often to get gifts, money,
career advancement and a wedding ring.
Instead, many radical feminists have encouraged young
women to give it away for free and enter egalitarian
relationships. Work for nothing? Why provide sex
without payment. Like slaves on a plantation.
