1 in 3 would give up sex for food? I call BSJuly 8, 2012
And of course.. i’m right.
The banner headline of this story is about as full of shit as can be. One need only get to the 3rd paragraph to see the fine print:
“…a collaborative effort by TODAY.com and Match.com — 39 per cent of women said they’d choose food over sex, while only 16 per cent of single men would sacrifice sex for food.”
I won’t even get into the 16 percent figure for men. I cannot believe in that statement. They’re either morbidly obese and have given up all hope, gay or have been drinking too much water laced with Bisphenol A.
So let’s look specifically at the female side of the equation. 39%.
THAT’S ALMOST HALF!
4 out of 10 women view sex in such a lackluster way that they would choose to eat a fucking piece of fat inducing chocolate rather than enjoy sex.
I have no clue if this study is a reflection of women across the globe or simply North America. But by god, i have to assume at the moment this disease is confined to the shores of North America which is why the whole notion of expatting to find women who enjoy having sex with men more than eating a tub of Häagen-Dazs is gaining traction.
From the article:
Why is sex so easily sacrificed — if only theoretically?
“People often say things like they’d pick money or sleep or food over sex,” sex therapist Ian Kerner tellsTODAY.com. “I think this shows that people take sex for granted, or that they’re not enjoying sex enough to really value it appropriately.”
Perhaps if women actually dated men who wanted to please them vs. just use them for a quick in and out pump n dump, they wouldn’t be so quick to put off sex for an AERO bar to feel the sensation of chocolate bubbles melting rather than the sensation of a mind altering orgasm.
And it gets worse..
Food isn’t the only thing people says they’d choose over sex. Another recent survey found that 15 per cent of iPhone users would rather give up sex than their iPhone
Yikes. No wonder i hate iPhone users so much. And it still gets even worse.
And two other surveys found: 44 percent of women would rather read romance novels than participate in sex
Well hello Mr. Grey.
If a survey came out that said men prefer going their own way and watching porn and playing video games rather than dealing with women, how many articles do you think would come out telling men to man up and stop being misogynist pigs objectifying women and to get out there and marry up.
Oh wait.. right.
Men aren’t immune either but i feel there is something else at play with them:
43 per cent of men would rather give up sex if it meant keeping their jobs.
This statement would correlate properly for a multitude of reasons. Men are expected to have jobs, otherwise their masculinity suffers for being a deadbeat hobo. If they are in a relationship, they’re required to work to be able to keep that relationship. In this case if sex has to take the hit to keep the pretense of a relationship going rather than being single and woman-less, the social stigma is the greater of two evils here.
Such a sorry state of affairs the mating game is in.
I’m just going to add this to the IDWTLOTPA files.
