(COMIC) A Preferable Solution
What is it about us men that is always getting into some sort of sexual scandal; be it something with kids, rape, or banging sheep? I think some of it has to do with experiencing abuse during childhood, but I also think that sexual repression and the lack of any real understanding of male sexuality is a major factor, as well. In fact, I don’t think I remember any guides to help us men understand our sex drives and how to handle it. Women have all the literature, but we don’t really have anything besides someone telling us to “keep it in your pants”.
The one thing that really sticks out to me is the double standard that exists with female sexual predators. Even typing “female sexual predators” feels sort of ridiculous because there are so few instances where a woman was the perpetrator. I jokingly ask myself “how can a woman force herself on a man?”. Well, it can happen:
..The West Virginia woman, 41, is facing assault and weapons charges after allegedly waving a knife at two men who declined her demands to engage in sexual conduct at a motor inn.
The October 22 incident is detailed in an amusing/gross Jackson County Sheriff’s Department …
According to investigators, Williams–who lives four doors down from her estranged husband at the 77 Motor Inn–showed up at his door and asked Danny Williams and another man to “eat my pussy.” At this point, Williams, pictured in the mug shot at right, “commenced to undress herself,” reported Deputy Ross Mellinger.
While Danny Williams “declined said invitation,” the other man, Adam Watson, told cops that he “agreed to perform at her request.” However, as Watson approached Williams, “he became overwhelmed by horrible vaginal odor emitting from Melissa Williams.” Watson, understandably, “declined to proceed any further.”
What was also notable to me was the author of this article described the ordeal as “amusing/gross” (which it is), but if it were a man who attacked those two men (or if those men were women), then it would be scary and awful.
Much of that powerful sexual drive that men tend to have comes from the early days of mankind when we all were little more than upright walking animals. Men had to be sexually aggressive, both in the Darwinian sense that only the strongest genes would be propagated, but also that more children meant that your genes would survive despite disease and animals eating your kids.
In a Puritanical, very sexually repressed society that would rather see a man get his brains blown out in a gun fight than see a woman’s vagina, you’re gonna have some problems. Not talking about it isn’t going to change anything.
