I believe it is more egregious for women to leave their natural function than it is for men since women don’t have the strong and powerful sex drive that men have. Men have ten times the testosterone and just their anatomy and the fact that they are visually stimulated makes it more difficult for them to remain morally pure. This is why women are called to be modest, discreet, and chaste for the good of culture. It is easier for them and when they lose this, all hell breaks lose and culture sinks into all types of depravity quickly.
I am so tired of this Victorian myth that women don’t have as strong and powerful a sex drive as men. Lori can speak for herself and stop assuming that all women don’t have a strong drive simply because men have more testosterone or maybe simply because she doesn’t have a drive herself. And what, women aren’t visually stimulated? Ugh. I guess I must be a real freak of a woman then. Just their anatomy? What about their penis? Just their penis does what? Seems very freudian to think because men have more of commanding presence to their sex organs, they must be more sexual. Woman’s sex organs are more hidden, so therefore they must not feel as much.
I think this article says it best:
The bottom line is that — newsflash! — it’s impossible to reduce sex drive to a dichotomized stereotype. Some men want sex all the time; some don’t. Some women want sex all the time; some don’t. And there are myriad reasons why each gender may not be interested, and many reasons this desire may be fluid over time.
Regardless of who has the higher sex drive, hormones and visual stimuli should not be used as an excuse for not being morally pure. Because men supposedly have a higher sex drive we are suppose to feel sorry for them. The message comes across as men just can’t help it. They are children basically and it is up to women to remain morally pure for the sake of society. Its just too difficult for them to remain pure, the poor guys! Men get a pass to blame their hormones, but do women get a pass to blame their hormones when they get overly emotional?
It is up to women to keep the culture pure since we supposedly don’t feel and have nearly the same sexual desires. Another newsflash–for every woman who has a sex outside of marriage there is a man involved also. However, the man is to be forgiven—he just can’t help it. Since the woman has lower testosterone she shouldn’t have felt as strongly as him and therefore abstained. The moral failing is her fault.
