Ladies, Stop Trying to Have Sex Like Men
From college campuses to our nation’s boardrooms, women try to pursue sex the way men often do: no commitment necessary. And they’re getting burned.

MAY 9, 2019 By Suzanne Venker





In her book “Unprotected,” former campus psychiatrist Dr. Miriam Grossman introduces readers to Olivia, a college student at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) who had been valedictorian of her high school class and was planning to go to medical school. After she arrived on campus, Olivia had a short-term relationship with a young man. When it ended, she had bouts of bingeing and vomiting and ended up at the campus health center, where she met Dr. Grossman.

It turns out Olivia had had her first sexual experience with the young man, and she told Grossman she couldn’t stop thinking about him. She especially couldn’t handle seeing him in class. “Why,” Olivia asked her, “do they tell you how to protect your body from herpes and pregnancy, but they don’t tell you what it does to your heart?”

Kerry Cohen, author of the memoir “Loose Girl,” can relate. In her book, Cohen examines her promiscuous past, which included sleeping with almost 40 boys and men. “Loose Girl” analyzes in great detail all of the emotions that accompanied Cohen’s sexual experiences. She reviewed the reasons why she had sex, why she chose the boys and men she did, how she felt leading up to each encounter, how she felt afterward, and what she expected to happen compared to what actually did happen. At the end of the day, what Cohen wanted was for guys to like her. “I let these men inside me, wanting to make me matter to them.”

It’s difficult to imagine the young man Olivia slept with having bouts of bingeing and vomiting and winding up at the campus health center as a result of his time with Olivia, just as it’s difficult to imagine a young man authoring a book like Cohen’s. The average guy who engages in commitment-free sex doesn’t ruminate over who he had sex with or why he did it—he knows why he did it.

Nor will he typically have sex with a woman because he wants her to like him. Many men have sex for no other reason than it’s available. “For a man, this might be a peasant trip down memory lane, counting up one’s conquests,” wrote Cohen. “But for a girl, it’s a whole other story.” A whole other story indeed.

Where did the idea that women could and should have indiscriminate sex with men originate? And when? The perfect storm for this still relatively new behavior was the sexual revolution, which proudly promoted commitment-free sex, and the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of the pill—both of which occurred in the 1960s.

Prior to that time, there was both a spoken and an unspoken narrative about sex: that it is meant for marriage—or, at the very least, for a committed adult relationship. It’s true people didn’t always agree on the marriage point, but they agreed that commitment was crucial. The idea that a person would go to bed with someone she just met or didn’t know well was absurd (and taboo as well).

No more. With a magic pill that would change literally everything, and the “free sex” mentality that swept the nation, a new idea was born: women can be just like men. With pregnancy off the table, women could be free to sow their wild oats, too. Problem is, most women don’t want to. And those who do quickly learn that their bodies won’t cooperate.

Indeed, contraception may prevent pregnancy, but it can’t do a thing about female nature. It can’t make a woman a man’s sexual “equal.” Yet we operate under the delusion that it does. From college campuses to our nation’s boardrooms, women try to pursue sex the way men often do: no commitment necessary. And they’re getting burned.

I wrote an article to this effect recently entitled “Why one-night stands don’t work for women.” It was not an argument for why one-night stands are “fine” for men but not for women. I don’t believe anyone should engage in casual sex. I agree 100 percent with Jordan Peterson’s assessment, whom I quoted at the end of my article:


People treat sex like it’s casual. It’s not. Sex is unbelievably complicated. It’s dangerous. It involves emotions. It involves pregnancy. It involves illness. It involves betrayal. It reaches right down into the roots of someone. You don’t play with something like that casually. Well, you can, but you’ll pay for it.

Peterson made this observation during one of his countless interviews, and it was unfortunately quickly forgotten. I believe it to be a truism that should be repeated over and over again, for it has never before been acknowledged by anyone in power. Instead, the assumption is that when it comes to sex, the birth control pill—in effect—turned women into men.

It didn’t. In a qualitative exploration of college hookups, the authors of the journal article “The Casualties of Casual Sex,” concluded (among other things) that women’s response to casual sex is very different from men’s:


The dominant notion of regret for females to center around shame and self-blame for engaging in sexual behaviors in the context of a hookup. Not knowing their partner and the lack of further contact with the partner seemed to compound their regrets and anger at themselves. The dominant notion of regret for males [emphasis mine] centered on disappointment over a bad choice of hookup partner. One female participant expressed this view: ‘During a hookup, females feel special, desirable, pretty; men feel hot and in control. Afterwards, females wonder if he’s going to call, what it means, did she do the right thing. Males feel nothing. Males don’t care, just as long as they get laid.

So many women today learn the hard way what their mothers or grandmothers have always known: sex for women is not the same as sex for men. Most men can have sex with a woman to whom they are not emotionally attached and not lose sleep over it. That is not the case for most women. Even the most sexually liberal woman is surprised to learn she cannot detach the way men can. She might appear indifferent toward casual sex, but her own reaction will often surprise her.


Take Alissa, 20, who has had six one-night stands and, within the past year, two different sex partners. When asked whether she thought she should be emotionally involved with someone before having sex with a guy, her contradictory views speak volumes:


No, sex is not that big of a deal. When you first have sex, it is a big deal, but once you’ve lost your virginity, it gradually becomes less important to be in love with the guy. The more you have sex, the less of a big deal it becomes … I get attached to guys I have sex with very easily because I’m very emotional; I think this is natural for all girls. If the guy is really a jerk, though, and I have nothing in common with him, then it’s a lot easier not to get emotionally involved than if I like the guy. Once I sleep with a guy, I feel that there is a bond between the two of us because we’ve shared our bodies and left ourselves vulnerable to each other. I think of the guy as being mine in a way, even though I know we don’t have a relationship.

Jessica, 21, has had six different sex partners within the past year and characterizes herself as strong feminist who “doesn’t need men in any way.” In speaking with Jessica, she gave the impression she found casual sex acceptable. But elsewhere in the interview, she admits she doesn’t engage in casual sex often because she doesn’t want to get hurt.


When I first go to bed with a guy, I wonder whether sex was all he was after and how he’ll treat me in the morning. If I like the guy, I worry about whether he cares about me; otherwise, I don’t care what he thinks. I’m not especially bothered by a one-night stand. I think of it as opening up; if it’s only for one night, that’s okay … I have to have control of myself. I can’t get so wrapped up in [my boyfriend] that I forget about myself.

That women tend to become attached after sex isn’t just limited to college women. In one of the sexual assault claims against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, lawyers unearthed emails between Weinstein and his accuser that confirmed the relationship was consensual. The most significant exchange was this one: “I love you, always do,” the woman wrote after the alleged attack. “But I hate feeling like a booty call.” Her message was followed up with a smiling-face emoji.

With uncommitted sex, women are playing a game they can’t win. Feeling “used,” or like a “booty call,” is the most common experience of women who engage in casual sex, or “hookups,” whether they’re teenagers or grown women. That just isn’t the case for most men.

It is true more women than ever are engaging in commitment-free sex—Lord knows they’re trying!—but this behavior does not in any way alter the unique sexual psychologies of women and men. In other words, women can try to act like men all they want. But the results will be drastically different for most of them.

Suzanne, You mean the "Pill" has helped create this mess?   You mean men don't feel accountable any more because it's all for free?   And poor women are getting burned?

Ya, we were better off when women acted like Women and men were Men.

Are we now supposed to go back to the prudish Victorian ideal of only having sex in the dark in the missionary position when we have agreed to procreate?

Since when are we not supposed to enjoy sex? Will religious conservatives now argue that the existence of birth control is a violation of their religious beliefs and as such is banned? 

I thought that this was satire when I read the title and the first paragraph. It's Friday so I assumed that this was the work of Andy Borowitz or the Onion.

Sex is both physical and emotionally healthy and is a great way to relax. I'm not giving that up because some people want to turn their social and intellectual sundial back 2500 years.

 There are some men who could not get laid in a women's prison, even if the had a stack of pardons.

I think that's some of it.  Patriarchy does give some women some measure of power - those who toe the line.  Not as much power as men, of course.  But many oppressive regimes have granted special privileges to collaborators.

I thought this was a good article. Thanks for posting it. 

Having read a lot of the comments made, I think most here missed the point of what it was talking about. They seem to have taken it as some sort of oppression against women or something rather than what it was. A generally true statement that, emotionally, women to not process sex emotionally the way men do and that no woman should try to. Generally. Of course there are exceptions but overall, I think the article was pretty accurate. If women processed sex the way men do, there wouldn't be anything getting done because nobody would make it out of the bedroom. 

The dominant notion of regret for females to center around shame and self-blame for engaging in sexual behaviors in the context of a hookup. Not knowing their partner and the lack of further contact with the partner seemed to compound their regrets and anger at themselves. The dominant notion of regret for males [emphasis mine] centered on disappointment over a bad choice of hookup partner. One female participant expressed this view: ‘During a hookup, females feel special, desirable, pretty; men feel hot and in control. Afterwards, females wonder if he’s going to call, what it means, did she do the right thing. Males feel nothing. Males don’t care, just as long as they get laid.

This quote needs to be understood for what it is. A generality. Of course this won't be true of everyone, but overall, I think it is true in general. I think what the article is saying is that while men generally can have casual sex without emotional attachment or complications, women generally don't react that way and there's no reason why they should try to change that. Why should they dismiss part of what would be fulfilling sex for them simply to have and regard sex the way men do? It isn't as if male ability to simply have casual sex without attachment is somehow superior to a woman desiring more than simply that. If a woman experiences emotional distress over a one night stand the answer isn't for her to change her feelings about sex, the answer is for her to have sex that is not only physically pleasing but emotionally as well. Why should she have to accept less that what she desires just because of how men view sex?

Again, we're speaking in generalities here. Nor is this article speaking to women who actually treat and enjoy sex as men do. It is speaking to women (most, in my opinion) who do not actually enjoy perusing sex the way men do.

How can you pretend to know what women feel about sex?  Most of the women I know do NOT need commitment in order to enjoy sex.  Of course women who need emotional attachment to enjoy sex shouldn't have sex without it - but for the majority of us, who think sex for its own sake can be fun, this article is insulting.  And the whole idea where it claims we will pay for it if we engage in casual sex!

Utter bullshit article.

Not only would I say the same thing to a man, I actually apply it to myself. I do not enjoy one night stands. They make me feel awful. I need something more than just sex, therefor I don't have casual sex. In fact, I do not have sex at all as I do not believe I could enjoy it outside marriage. I need commitment.

To blame the collapse of society on women wanting the freedom to engage in casual sex the way men always have (apparently without causing a societal collapse) is misogynistic.

I can understand your point of view. It is sometimes hard not to get offended when people start throwing around terms like "toxic masculinity" and "male white privilege". However, I have some affinity for what Vic said. Within reason, I have no problem with women going for and attaining what men have always enjoyed. I would prefer that they not become men to do it, however. Women are not men and men are not women. Each have their strengths and weaknesses. Because a man is not a woman doesn't make him less and vice versa. 

To blame the collapse of society on women wanting the freedom to engage in casual sex the way men always have (apparently without causing a societal collapse) is misogynistic.

I would not attempt to state what Vic intended by his comment, however, I feel free to comment on what his comment suggested to me. I do not think he intended to blame women for the collapse of society. Further, I doubt he felt that this issue alone was to blame. I think what Vic was referring to was the idea that sex can be/ should be enjoyed without consequence is a false narrative. To put it another way, it wasn't women he was referring to, but a meme. Specifically, that sex can sometimes be treated as just some casual thing, sometimes. I don't think that's right. I think the quote from Jordan Peterson was spot on. 

People treat sex like it’s casual. It’s not. Sex is unbelievably complicated. It’s dangerous. It involves emotions. It involves pregnancy. It involves illness. It involves betrayal. It reaches right down into the roots of someone. You don’t play with something like that casually. Well, you can, but you’ll pay for it.

I don't think Vic's comment was misogynistic because I don't believe he was referring to women in his comment. I think he was referring to an idea about the nature of sex. If he meant anything else, then he would then have to also be charged with misandry, since males would be just as culpable as females.

I'm not sure what you intend by this. To my mind, the author of the article seems compelled to talk about a problem he or she sees in society. Are you saying people should not do that? That would eliminate quite a bit of communication, don't you think?

So men can have casual indiscriminate sex and women can't?

Valid question Tess. Here is the answer - When women have indiscriminate sex there are consequences.

The same is true of men, in my opinion. If there is a difference, it is that women tend to be more intelligent when it comes to sex. They tend to think more.

To be fair, a man's blood drains from his brain and goes to his penis when it comes to sex. That's why men tend to think less. They let their penises do the thinking for them. Giggity

Did your sex ed class cover anything?  I'm on my phone, so can't post links, but the last I read, condoms fail about 15% of the time, and the Pill (which doesn't prevent STIs) about 2-3% of the time.  And that doesn't address the spread of STIs, which can be spread via oral sex.  Ask Michael Douglas.

Which men are marrying "not well educated" women and supporting them as an act of charity / generosity?

while all these independent divas are living the life of a professional man of the 1950's?

Are you intentionally being sexist, inflammatory and rude?  I only ask because some men are just too steeped in self-importance to have any respect for the accomplishments of other men and believe that women have to screw the boss to get a promotion.

Which, in my opinion, is connected to what the article is talking about. It seems to me that, historically and presently, it is taken as given, and almost as accepted, that it is simply natural that males will put their member in anything remotely receptive. And because this is so, then there should be nothing wrong with females doing the same thing. I strongly object to such a notion and I think that is what the article was speaking of. The article claims...

Many men have sex for no other reason than it’s available.

I agree. In fact, I think that this is the default position of nearly all men. It isn't a passive inclination but, rather, a driving imperative. That doesn't make it right. 

I had a fiance who said if he could he would suck his own dick.
He also said that if he was a woman he would be a whore.

I can completely relate. Such is the sex drive of the average male. Take a look at the sex doll industry. There are those who are trying to perfect the perfect robotic female for sexual use. A robot that exists for the purpose of male sexual desire. This is part and parcel of what you are alluding to. 

What I think the article is talking about is that sex is much more than that. It is deeper that mere physical satisfaction and any attempt to treat it otherwise is harmful, in my opinion.

Vic, 

Women like men make decisions. Some chose to get married and raise a family and that's OK. Some chose to have a career (which is hardly a diva, since divas are women high maintenance) and that's OK. And some do both. Each has an upside and a downside. But these choices should be allowed as it has been allowed for men.

I still remember the Folgers commercials.  Sadly, this really was a mirror into the Bible Belt society that I was raised in. Back in the mid-70s,  I was (19) visiting my father's house and he wanted a pot of coffee.  My stepmother always waited on him hand and foot, but had gone to town.  He told me to make coffee.  I told him I didn't know how because I did not drink coffee.  I drank Dr. Pepper.  Since he was the person who drank coffee, it seemed to me that he should have learned how to make it himself.

The man NEVER did any "woman's" work - NONE.  My stepmother done ALL the housework, fed the livestock and eventually supported him by growing and selling flowers and produce.

Thankfully, I don't remember any of the following.  From 1947, there is an ad that asks about the legality of killing a woman and from the 1950s is an ad showing a man spanking a woman for not making coffee properly.

Watching these ads explains a lot about the mentality of the men who wrote them and the men who embrace the messages.

Not for me, my Mother and Father fairly much shared the workload. To the best of my knowledge my Mother never washed a floor while my Father was alive, it was his notion that a woman should not have to get down on her hands and knees to scrub a floor.

They pretty much are how my thoughts came together.

Sorta similar here my mom passed when I was young so I grew up without really knowing the chores we were doing (laundry, cleaning, cooking, etc) were traditionally gender specific

When I was young my father had left and my mother had to work. Once a week my sister and I would clean the house together. We all each did our own laundry.

Growing up my best friend was a girl. Her mother would teach us how to cook and bake.

We never did anything really gender specific. If it was we didn't notice or care.

A large number of men have no idea how to have mutually satisfying sex with women. It is usually all about them and a wham-bam thank ya mam experience for the woman. Very few women I have talked to on this subject have said they have a mutually satisfying sexual relationship with their Husbands/BF. 

I think a good number of men are the ones who need to be better educated about how to please their partner more than women.

Not at all.   Actually, a balanced diet is essential to combatting male mood swings and aggression.  

Currently, I am committed to buying as much organic as I can afford and growing & preserving the produce that I can in order to avoid the poisons that are allowed in today's US food supply.

Below is probably too much information, but I recently watched a video that mentioned that one solution proposed in the 70s to promote lasting peace in the Middle East was adding more zinc to their diet.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4285094/

There is a broad spectrum of physiological signs of zinc deficiency given that zinc is involved in a great number of biochemical processes. Most commonly, zinc deficiency is associated with skin lesions, such as seen in Acrodermatitis enteropathica, an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder affecting the uptake of zinc. Additionally, growth retardation and hypogonadism in males were among the first and frequently reported clinical signs in zinc deficient patients (Prasad, 2013). However, apart from several other symptoms caused by zinc deficiency, such as poor appetite, delayed wound healing, cell-mediated immune dysfunction, and abnormal neurosensory changes (Prasad, 2013), behavioral alterations have been consistently reported. Zinc deficiency may result in depression, emotional instability, increased anxiety and aggression, irritability and deficits in social behavior. Additionally, or as consequence of some factors discussed above, impaired memory and capacity to learn may occur.

Zinc deficiency is associated with multiple disorders. In particular, patients suffering from neurological disorders often show zinc deficiencies. For example, low serum zinc levels have been reported in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Mood Disorders, such as depression, Schizophrenia (SCZ), and Spinocerebellar ataxia type 2 (Pfaender and Grabrucker, 2014). Furthermore, zinc deficiency has been observed in disorders of the gastro-intestinal (GI) tract, such as malabsorption syndrome, Crohn’s disease, regional ileitis and steatorrhea, as well as liver disease, renal diseases, alcoholism, and sickle cell disease (Prasad, 2013). It is therefore necessary to understand how zinc deficiency will influence the initiation and/or progression of such a disorder and modify the disease phenotype. Here, we will focus especially on the behavioral alterations that can be observed in zinc deficient subjects.

Given that targeted manipulation of zinc levels in humans is hard to achieve and ethically unacceptable, in the past, various animal models for zinc deficiency have been created and analyzed.

Ah, I see Suzanne's work is endorsed by Dr. Laura.  The same Dr. Laura who dispenses morality she doesn't follow.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Schlessinger

In 1975, while working in the labs at USC, she met Lewis G. Bishop, a professor ofneurophysiology, who was married and the father of three children.[2][70]Bishop separated from his wife and began living with Schlessinger the same year.[71]Schlessinger has vociferously proclaimed her disapproval of unwed couples "shacking up" and having children out of wedlock. According to her friend Shelly Herman, "Laura lived with Lew for about nine years before she was married to him."[2]"His divorce was final in 1979.[72]Bishop and Schlessinger married in 1985.[73]Herman says that Schlessinger told her she was pregnant at the time, which Herman recalls as "particularly joyful because of the happy news." In 1998, Schlessinger's early radio mentor,Bill Ballance, sold nude photos of Schlessinger to a company specializing in internet porn. The photos were taken in the mid-1970s, while Schlessinger was involved in a brief affair with the then-married Ballance.

Not to mention it's not really rational, kind of misogynistic to blame women for being the problem when in fact the men they are sleeping with are equally to blame.

To summarize the article, women should live like nuns and men are OK to act like animals. Put on your chastity belts ladies!

The real point here is to blame women and remind them that sex isn't to be enjoyed by them. 

You are supposed to get married, let your fat slob husband thrust on you whenever he wants. The good news is it only lasts for 3 seconds but then you have to push that slob off you when he falls a sleep.

Why should anyone be "blamed" for having consensual sex?

Why not congratulated or simply ignored as nobody else's business?

Shouldn't the focus be on what do about the people who commit non-consensual sex acts?

I actually think I agree with the sentiment of your comment.  However, I don't believe that the word "blame" should be used in conjunction with discussing consensual sex.

I did a little research after reading y'all's comments about incels.  These men need to taken very seriously by law enforcement when they out themselves on social media for all of our sakes.  Men, who have any rationality/sanity, know they are not entitled to have sex with any woman and certainly not one of their choosing.

More on what incels have done and are doing.  

Unfortunately, this mindset is not confined to incels.  There are men who believe that they should be praised and worshipped just for existing because they are men.    Are these guys born with narcissus personality disorder?  If so, there is no cure to date.  Are they psychopaths?  Are they sociopaths?  Regardless, they are definitely not relationship friendly and should be recognized as such by women because it is vital to her mental and physical health.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/09/world/americas/incels-toronto-attack.html

The recent mass killing in Toronto by a man who once called for an “Incel Rebellion” has drawn attention to an online community of men who lament being “involuntarily celibate” and dream of a social order granting them access to the women of their choice.

The group may seem like a bizarre but tiny fringe, its views the expression of long-held resentments among a handful of lonely men. And it is.

But incels are the latest manifestation of a much larger movement hidden just beneath the surface of polite society across the West. They are just one part of a set of ideologies, now growing in size and influence, that speak to broader resentments among men in Western societies, experts say.

Two of modern society’s most disruptive forces — anger among many men over social changes they see as a threat, and the rise of social media upending how ideas spread and communities form — are colliding. The result is that movements like the incels are becoming at once more accessible and more extreme.

Although attacks like the one in Toronto that killed 10 people are rare, the hate being spread online is leading increasingly to threats and calls for violence. More often than not, the threats target women.

‘Aggrieved Entitlement’

For white men across the Western world, special rights and privileges once came as a birthright. Even those who lacked wealth or power were assured a status above women and minorities.

Though they still enjoy preferential status in virtually every realm, from the boardroom to the courthouse, social forces like the Me Too movement are challenging that status. To some, any steps toward equality, however modest, feel like a threat.

“There’s just this sense that ‘we used to be in charge, and now we’re not the only ones in charge, so we’ve been attacked,’” said Lilliana Mason, a University of Maryland social scientist who studies group identity and politics.

“If you have a sense that you’re owed, that your deserved status is being threatened, then you start to fight for it,” Ms. Mason said.

Often that takes the form of lashing out at members of whatever social group dared to challenge the established hierarchy. “You’d think that young men would be treated nicely by society because we are the builders and protectors of civilization,” wrote a user named connorWM1996 on r/MGTOW, a Reddit message board for men trying to escape what they see as oppression by female-dominated society. “But no of course not. We are treated like idiots who aren’t good for anything.”

I just googled.  He has a video on youtube describing his frustrations with "you girls".  

How does anyone explain to the mentally ill that they are mentally ill .... or just plain creepy?  Isn't the wisest thing to do (in today's society) is to avoid them when possible and try not to be on their "radar" and hope that they won't rape or kill you?  Isn't it time that the mental health issues of these boys/men are taken seriously and meaningfully addressed instead of blaming women for catering to them?

Instinct.  It doesn't always work, but in some cases, the person is so mentally damaged that being in their presence is frightening - sometimes from a very young age.  This is why I am reviewing the very real danger that we place ourselves and our children in by trying to be inclusive of the "shy" or "misunderstood" children and adults.

If our children's instinct is that they are uncomfortable around certain children, then we really need to be having conversations about why in order to help them avoid being harmed.

 As adults, we need to learn to trust our own instincts and quit worrying about being judgmental about the people who make us feel uneasy or downright threatened.  As women, being "nice" can easily lead to being abused or murdered.

Some people want to act like sex is no big deal, but then look at how much more seriously we take sex related crimes. Our more intense anger over those crimes is not limited to the most serious rape cases but goes all the way down to simply offensive language or a causal touch. We don't react like that to the full spectrum of any other type of crime. 

There's also the way sex with a friend can ruin a friendship. Or sex with a coworker can ruin a professional situation.

I'm not suggesting - as some would have it - that women should be locked up in the home or something, maybe tied up sacks or whatever. I'm just suggesting that it is not realistic to just dismiss out of hand a concern for the psychological impact of casual sexual activity.

Power.

Rape is about asserting power over someone else.  That is why, on occasion, men are assaulted by other men who are not homosexual.  It's not about sexual pleasure for the aggressor.

And we don't take sex crimes all that seriously.  Oh, we say we do, but as a society, we don't.  We blame the victim.  We slap the perp's wrist.

Sure, but it's also about sex. Also, I did say I was talking about the full spectrum of sex crimes. There are many ways to exercise power over someone. There are many ways to commit violence against someone. But what we are talking about are acts with an obvious sexual component and that component is what makes it worse. So, it's therefore not consistent to claim that even voluntary sex might not have a substantial emotional impact on a person.

We don't? Other than murder, it's hard to think of a set of crimes with harsher punishments than those related to sex crimes, especially rape. Any crimes that can be shown to be committed with an attempt to rape, e.g.: burglary with intent to commit rape, kidnapping with intent to commit rape, etc., carry harsher penalties. Even for the whole spectrum, which includes relatively minor crimes, we have lifetime registration of sex offenders. Where is the lifetime registration for burglary, robbery, fraud, battery, etc.?

On the other hand, if our attitude is that it's silly to be concerned over the emotional impact of casual sex, then logically we shouldn't take sex crimes seriously.

You're conflating rape and consensual sex again.  Defense attorneys use the same tactic when they victim-blame.  "If she chooses to have sex with other men, what's the big deal if my client chooses to have sex with her?"

Do we take physical assault seriously?  We should.  Any time one is violent toward another, violates another's bodily autonomy, that should be taken seriously.

And quite a few headlines point to us NOT taking rape seriously.

An individual headline can be isolated. The legal penalties for rape are severe. I know of a person serving 37 years to life for attempted rape. He didn't even get to the sex part.

You're talking about individual cases that make headlines. When a burglar or drug dealer "gets off" does it make headlines? No. Why? Because sex crimes matter more to people. The sex component creates a unique emotional impact.

One HUGE difference.  Close to 100 percent of murders are reported and investigated.  Only 25 percent of rapes are reported.  Of the 25 percent, very few are prosecuted.  Of the prosecuted, very few are convicted and serve even one day in prison.  

Want more facts, then research it and educate yourself about rape. 

Learning the difference between consensual sex and rape would definitely be beneficial for everyone who is confused about this issue.

The Majority of Sexual Assaults Are Not Reported to the Police

Only 230 out of every 1,000 sexual assaults are reported to police. That means about 3 out of 4 go unreported.1

  • Individuals of college-age2
    • Female Students: 20% report
    • Female Non-Students: 32% report
  • The elderly: 28% report3
  • Members of the military: 43% of female victims and 10% of male victims reported.4

Reasons Victims Choose to Report—or Not

Of the sexual violence crimes reported to police from 2005-2010, the survivor reporting gave the following reasons for doing so:5

  • 28% to protect the household or victim from further crimes by the offender
  • 25% to stop the incident or prevent recurrence or escalation
  • 21% to improve police surveillance or they believed they had a duty to do so
  • 17% to catch/punish/prevent offender from reoffending
  • 6% gave a different answer, or declined to cite one reason
  • 3% did so to get help or recover loss

Of the sexual violence crimes not reported to police from 2005-2010, the victim gave the following reasons for not reporting:5

  • 20% feared retaliation
  • 13% believed the police would not do anything to help
  • 13% believed it was a personal matter
  • 8% reported to a different official
  • 8% believed it was not important enough to report
  • 7% did not want to get the perpetrator in trouble
  • 2% believed the police could not do anything to help
  • 30% gave another reason, or did not cite one reason

Consensual sex may, or may not.  It has been stated that men are not emotionally impacted by sex.  Should we therefore have lesser penalties for raping a man or boy?

You know of a person serving 37 years.  Judges in my area are notorious for leaving child molesters out in public until they've been convicted several times.  And whether he got to the sex part, he violated his victim's person.

I will cite some known emotional impacts of rape. 

I don't know how consensual sex would cause these types of emotional distress unless it was with a narcissistic and only then if a person got emotionally involved with them.  As long as the relationship never progresses past casual, the narcissist will often jump through hoops to please their intended victim.

I hear they do but that it's to a lesser extent than it effects women. I'm not an expert, though, and I am not making a scientific claim. My mind however, is open to the idea. For some, it seems that political ideology closes their mind to the possibility that casual sex might not be healthy for some people and they think that their own personal experience defines what everyone else should feel.

But if you read the article it is saying "women", not some women.  

She helps women let go of feminist beliefs that undermine their ability to create happy lives and find lasting love with men.

This blurb about the author is stating that women cannot be happy until they find "lasting love" with men.  Do you believe that?  Maybe we shroud start teaching our young people that OTHER people cannot MAKE you happy.  If you are not happy another person is not going to make you happy.  You need to be happy to begin with and other people add to your happiness.  

I am a feminist - found my husband many moons ago & we have built a "happy" life together.  However, if I had not been happy to begin with nothing he could do would make me "happy".

If you are not happy another person is not going to make you happy.

The men, who just want a mom replacement, domestic slave,  sex object and/or incubator for their sperm, do not care about women period.  That is why they don't have relationships or relationships that last.

Those men are looking for a subservient, not an equal, not a partner.  This is why women, who are seeking equal partnerships, are repulsed by them.

I think for a long time, the mechanics of reproduction and the prevention of disease were the primary goals of sex education. However, in more recent times, I think that has expanded to include educating students about the different types of relationships people can have (e.g. homosexual) and the various transgender issues they can face.

I think it would be smart to expand into the emotional impact of sexual relationships, especially considering some of the more extreme reactions we see. I think maybe it's a thing that we have avoided in the schools because people see it as a cultural or religious issue, but I think it's a psychological issue.

What do you think working as a prostitute would do to a woman as far as emotional impact? 

If it harms a woman to have consensual sex with a man that she desire sexually, then how much worse would it be for a woman to have sex just for money?

In the Ojibwe nations there are what is called ''mides''....The are members of the Midewiwin Society also know as the ''Grand Medicine Society''....This society is well over 1,000 years old. To become a mide it takes around 20 years to reach the highest level. One must know all of the natural healing herbs and they work on the premise that one much heal the soul and mind as well as the body. They are healers, teachers, keepers of the Sacred Scrolls of the Ojibwe (our history for over a thousand years)....The reason I'm bringing this up on this article is the the mide are not all men. For hundreds of years women as well as men have become midewiwin. It's a way of life that they never leave. Many of us have our own mide that we consult with from time to time. My mide is a woman and has been my mide for well over 30 years. 

I believe that if you look at different cultures you'll see many are vastly different than what this article represents.

I believe that if you look at different cultures you'll see many are vastly different than what this article represents. 

Indeed. The Cherokee are a Matriarchal Tribe. Women are treated as equals, and own all property of the family. If a married woman decides to divorce her Husband she simply sets his personal belongings outside of the home and that is it. They are no longer married. There is no contest to the divorce allowed by the Husband. 

However, in spite of the women being treated equal to men, even being allowed to sit on the Council, the majority of women do not normally do so leaving that to the men. Becoming a War Woman who also fights alongside the men in battle is also allowed, and War Women are entitled to the same merits as men.

Yet, women are also expected to be good Wives to their mates and good Mothers to their children. While divorce is allowed and easily done, it is rare. Most couples are devoted to each other and their family.

So as Kavika says, different cultures can be very different from the kind of life-style the article tries to represent.
