The challenge of the sex drive

Hunger, thirst, coldness, and tiredness: sensations that drive a lifeform to act, to secure something it needs for survival–food, water, heat, rest. We share them with lower animals. We experience them as sensations, and while we are not free of the requirements they point to, we have some ability to resist their force on us.

How about the sex drive? It can be placed in that category too. It’s another basic, lizard-brain life-sustaining process. Some call it a ‘need’. But it’s a strange one. Its goal, getting a lifeform to mate with another of its species, isn’t necessary for individual survival. But it is for group survival.

On ‘anti-slut defence’ tactics, ‘slut-shaming’, and their critics

ASD, or anti-slut defence is a term used in the PUA or Red Pill space. It refers to behavioural and psychological tendencies of women to resist seduction by men they really want to have sex with, in order to maintain their non-slutty reputation and self-image.

“Refuse to date men who watch porn”

Crossposted from Your Brain Rebalanced:

Here’s some graffiti/street art spreading this meme, from Untameable Shrews:

Here they use the #PornKillsLove hashtag, a slogan used by Fight the New Drug, a Mormon-founded but non-religious anti-porn advocacy and education organisation. You’ve probably heard of it.

Sex robots vs. feminists

Sex robots are coming! Well, they’re already here, but they’re kind of shitty. But our glorious industrial-technological society’s entrepreneurs are working on improving them, and their valiant efforts have recently earned the attention and, probably, admiration, of the tireless mainstream journalists. Here’s a Guardian piece.

Is a man who uses porn more, or less attractive?

This one’s for the ladies. Just two questions, and I’d advise posting your answers before reading the other responses. Because what I’m looking for is entirely personal opinion. So it’d be interesting to get these opinions as uninfluenced as possible.

i. All else being equal, is a man who uses porn more, or less attractive to you, than a man who does not?

ii. Why do you think that is? (Or why not?)

Thanks for your participation.

Guys: if you have a wife or girlfriend, or close female friend, who doesn’t have an account here, and if it’d be appropriate to ask her these questions, I’d appreciate if you did and relayed her answers here…

After we get a few responses, let’s see if we can discuss the deeper meanings one might draw from them.

Thread (and poll) here

I’ll cross-postĀ relevant comments.
