My lovely twitter friend, Miss @MarnaP, sent me this article yesterday. I think it’s something EVERY woman between the ages of 14-60 needs to watch (guys should watch it too). Once you watch it, you need to talk about, tell your friends and make sure they all watch it. It’s FASCINATING. So, sit back at your desk and take the next 9 minutes to be educated.
Did you watch the whole thing, did you? Ok, now we can talk.
When I was a pre-teen getting the sex talk from my mom, she insinuated/made us believe that she waited until marriage to have sex. Now, that I’m older I know better, but throughout my high school years I believed that sex was something special that should be reserved for someone you love. When I got older I was just looking to give my V-card away to someone who was nice to me. I didn’t love him, but the fact that he loved me so much made it okay (and it was the right decision for me).
But, now that I’m older, in my schedule peak, and have had sex with more than one person (gasp!), I know how important a physical relationship is. I also know that sometimes, a girl just needs to get laid. There are times I feel like I’ve given it up too soon and then there are other times that I feel like I waited too long. For me, I tend to wait longer with people I actually like and see a future with over people I’d just like to have sex with.
My real question is, is this sexual revolution of independent, strong women really hurting our chances to get married? Is birth control really to blame? Should I be taking a page from “Think Like A Man” and not giving anyone my cookie (even though I want to)?
I feel like I’m running into the problem that guys my age don’t want to date someone their age, but I also don’t want to have sex with someone who is 10 years older than me? If men are getting laid from women 8-10 years younger and perkier than me are they really going to come back to my age range when they are ready to settle down? I think not.
Lastly, while I get that if we come together as women and bring the “price” of sex back up what’s the likelihood that’s going to happen… ever. Women are competitive, jealous and down right mean when it comes to men. You know if I got together a group of 100 women in a room and said, “No one sleep with anyone for the next month and we’ll all get married.” 2-5 women will slut it up in the first week – BECAUSE. THEY. CAN.
Thoughts on this? Comment below!
A couple of questions to ponder:
What’s your price of sex?
Did birth control make you more sexually active? OR is it the condom? We live in the age of STDs people!
