Laughing My Arse Off….Posted: July 13, 2007
…As the saying goes!
Idly browsing, I come across a spectacularly bizarre article about spectacularly bizarre people (well, young, rich, conservative Americans, anyway!). Within it, I find this quote about female promiscuity:
“I think one sexual partner for every 2-3 years is acceptable for a girl from a good family. Sex just isn’t something girls should be doing if they are interested in marrying me.”
*Space indicates blank silence which should, by rights, follow such a statement!
Shall I bother to comment? Er… yeah, ok….
Frankly, this, er, man, sounds like the kind of person second only to Creepy Guy on my list of people to avoid!
I’m not sure which implication puts me off most —
— “I’m so good, I’m worth the wait”
— “sex is something I shall enjoy, and my wife shall tolerate”
— “sex is something my wife doesn’t really want; therefore, she would never cheat on me”
— “my wife shall be from a ‘good family’ because I deserve no less” (I’m intruigued to know what counts as a ‘good family’ in any case – no convicts, lords or lunatics, perhaps?!)
I’m sure, though, he never meant the inference I drew from his comment, namely —
— “my wife had better not like / want sex, because I’m really, really crap in bed!”
You’ve got to laugh, really, haven’t you?
Actually, it made me quite smug to think that this man will never, ever go out with someone like me. Just think what he’s missing!
