Let’s talk about sex baby

They advertised another slutty cheap men’s magazine last night.  Where as I don’t mind men’s magazines, I really don’t appreciate it when they are downright just about sex – and cheap sex at it.

There’s some people who believe that men think about sex every 7 seconds.  mmmm…no I don’t think that could even be remotely correct, however I do think that men think about sex several times a day.  Women on the other hand, on average don’t think near as much about sex as men do.

Why is that? 

  1. I believe because of the way girls and boys are raised.  Girls are taught to cover up their bodies (with reason!), not to engage in sexual acts unless they are married or in committed relationships.  Boys on the other hand, don’t get strict “rules” when it comes to sex.  As long as they wear a condom right?
  1. Advertising.  Women’s bodies get used to advertise everything from body lotion to cars.  Boys get taught that women are sexual beings right from a young age.  They learn to attach sexual thoughts to most things.
  1. Magazines – pretty much the same as advertising.  They use women to sell products.  Also you get way more “men’s” magazines.

Why not talk more about sex in magazines for women?  Proving that woman actually have sexual thoughts too.  Showing to woman that it’s okay to have those thoughts?

If I were a man, I would probably think about sex more often too.  They are raised to connect sex with most things in life.  Women were raised to feel self-conscious of their sexuality.  As little girls and teenagers, they have to look at ads “using” the women’s body to sell.  Of course they’ll get self-conscious at an age where they are trying to cope with their changing bodies.

That being said.  I’m raising my boys to respect themselves as well as the girl/woman.  I hope that I will teach them to only engage in sex within a committed relationship.  (I have even had this talk with my friend’s son)  I will explain to them the difference between how men and women perceive sex.

Society is the reason.  Also as my friend BondGirl pointed out in her comment of this post, it’s mostly the South African Society.  That and the fact that men don’t have much else to think about!  Us women are the ones who think about work, kids, school, supper, school activities, homework blah blah blah.

Men think about work, sex, golf, sex, sport, sex.

Sorry to the guys reading this entry today!  Maybe I should have waited to post on this when I had more sleep the night before.  I think I might have made more sense!

    I agree its society thats makes women feel dirty about sex and themselves, BUT, specifically south african society. Having been involved with a european [austrian] man my attitude is completely different towards sex, porn, magazines, movies, nakedness, myself – everything. All the hangups I ever had are gone and I am very grateful for that – its very liberating. I will never accept the attitude that most south african men come with. My boys will be taught that sex and nudity is natural and wonderful and should not be viewed as secret and dirty and hidden in little dark bars. That it should be shared with your partner and not with a bunch of depraved men. And that it is important to be careful and not abuse sex.

  3. Well put, Mel. I couldn’t agree more.

    Very funny about what men think about, though for my hubby, it’s something like “work, sex, computer, sex, computer . . .” 🙂
