File: sex

The Farmer in the Dell came to mind this morning, and I realized as it was rolling around in my head that aside from being a silly thing for kids to sing, it could also be seen as a teaching tool, to some extent. It shows kids an order to life. The farmer takes a […]

A few thoughts about men and their emotions

Many people — perhaps most — think that men are less emotional than women. I’m not so sure about that. I think men might be more emotional than women, but they have fewer outlets for their emotions and they keep them inside.

How marriage protects the average guy

The “manosphere” is full of descriptions and discussions of hypergamy, which Wikipedia defines as “marrying someone of higher caste or status than oneself,” but which the manosphere uses in a slightly different way — as a tendency for women to look for a fling with a man of higher status.

Why sex is everybody’s business

If you haven’t already, please watch this video. It’s pretty good. It glosses over some things, but it makes some very important points. It starts off speaking of sex as an exchange. That is only one way to look at it, but it is a pretty good way because it allows you to think of […]
