Alice In Wonderland

 

 

Everything in the world

is about sex except sex.

Sex is about power.

Scarier than zombies, ghouls and witches, my Halloween thoughts wander down the rabbit hole of sexuality having three know-it-all teens curious about tricks and treats. Excerpts from Deborah L. Spar’s Wonder Women: Sex, Power and the Quest for Perfection:

Until the shift in social norms that Helen Gurley Brown captured and Erica Jong brought to conclusion, women were still bound by the contractual nature of courtship: sex in exchange for a husband/protector, two cows or true love.

Women may lead themselves to believe that now that they can have casual sex, they are truly playing the same game as men. In theory, hooking up means men are now commodified as easily as women. In practice, though, it also means women are no longer in a position to ask for anything but sex in exchange for sex–not marriage, not a date, not even a phone call the next morning or a ride home.

Unless women actually enjoy casual sex, they may have struck a deal that works against their own best interests.  Women may like sex as much as men. They may want it as frequently and in the same infinity of permutations. But the link between sex and relationship is stronger for women, as is the social penalty for promiscuity.

Ultimately, the question is whether women truly enjoy the freedom of uncommitted sex.  Are women equally content to give and get sex for nothing, or have they given men what men want (easy and cheap sex) without getting much in return?

The widespread embrace of the hooking-up norm may be one of womankind’s greatest gift to men: No real commitment. No real feelings required. This is like a man’s paradise!

    Interestingly, Sharon you have hit on a topic that has been on my mind lately, you seem to have a knack for doing that. But not all men play the same game. I, for one feel there has to be some type of serious feelings for a woman before I will allow myself an intimate moment. Ok, so I have had a few encounters of the moment but they were not of my doing and that was fine at the time. It’s the life long commitment these days that troubles me with feelings that don’t and have not existed for a long time. Luckily at least for now it’s about the sex and the equal need for it as it is for this man. Where will it lead? Who knows because my thoughts of commitment have changed, although I do love, but that may never be enough for a Goddess.

    Love this type of photo shoot, very sexy! There is something about a beautiful woman in the outdoors that makes me hot. I guess it’s that mountain man in me. 😉
